As the Michigan hearings on allegations of election fraud continued on Wednesday, one witness — a “fiery” IT contract worker for Dominion Voting Systems — burned Democrat lawmakers to a smoldering heap as they attempted to question her credibility and her claims of election fraud; which she said she saw with her own eyes.
Melissa Carone, a Republican, went off on Democrat State Rep. Darrin Camilleri after he said her allegations were not substantiated — a ploy all Democrats lawmakers in the hearings have used, continually attempting to intimidate and discredit witnesses who claim eye-witness accounts of vote-counting irregularities.
“What I witnessed at the Centre was complete fraud. Batches of the same ballots counted multiple times, 8 – 10 times. THE WHOLE 27 HOURS NOT ONE SINGLE BALLOT FOR DONALD TRUMP!!! That is scary.”
It was game-on.

Social media guy Cerno was “obsessed” with Carone’s “sassy face.”

To be fair, Republican State Rep. Matt Hall, the chair of the committee asked Carone why more witnesses have not come forward with similar testimony — and off she went on him.
“I’ll tell you why. My life has been destroyed. My life has been completely destroyed because of this! I can’t even get a job anymore because Democrats like to ruin your life.”
“I know what I saw,” she said to another lawmaker. “And I signed something (a sworn affidavit) saying that if I’m wrong, I can go to prison. Did you?”
So, was Carone credible? Needless to say, Twitter libs thought she was crazy.
I thought Rudy Giuliani was crazy.
Then I thought that Trump’s 46-minute tirade was insane.

Melissa Carone said she is working with a different attorney. She also said she had to take her social media accounts down. She also said she is scared. Okay this is from her FB page! She is lying. pic.twitter.com/MqXYq0TxDu

As reported by The Washington Post on Wednesday, during a November interview on Fox News with Lou Dobbs — an avid Trump supporter — Carone suggested that ballots were being smuggled inside food vans, which seemed to baffle even Lou. Two days later, a Wayne County judge ruled that her allegations “simply are not credible.”

Carone was lauded on social media, as well. This Twitter user sums it up.

The bottom line.
I’m simply the messenger here, folks. As in “Don’t shoot the.” I don’t know if Carone’s allegations were credible or not. But I do know that she got everyone’s attention — for better or for worse. What’s your take?
