Attorneys for Dominion Voting Systems lambasted Mellissa Carone in a scorching cease-and-desist letter after she made bizarre, baseless claims about the company helping rig the election for President-elect Joe Biden.Dominion Voting Systems, which has been the target of numerous false fraud allegations since the 2020 election, called Carone's claims “outlandish” and warned her that “litigation regarding these issues is imminent.”The letter also advised the Grosse Pointe Woods woman to preserve all communications between herself and Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Jenna Ellis, and “any other member of the Trump campaign.”“You gained international infamy earlier this month as Rudy Giuliani's so-called 'star witness' who could supposedly corroborate outlandish accusations that Dominion has somehow rigged or otherwise improperly influenced the outcome of the Nov. 2020 U.S. presidential election,” attorneys Thomas Clare and Megan Meier said in the letter, first posted by Law & Crime “Without a shred of corroborating evidence, you have claimed that you witnessed several different versions of voter fraud—ranging from one story involving a van, to other accusations that votes were counted multiple times,” the letter continues. “You published these statements even though you knew all along that your attacks on Dominion have no basis in reality.”Carone’s off-the-wall testimony about alleged voter fraud in Michigan caught national attention, and she was parodied on Saturday Night Live. Two years before her testimony, police accused Carone of harassing her boyfriend's ex-wife and sending her videos of herself having sex with him. As a result, Carone was charged with obscenity and computer crime offenses.metrotimes.com
Fox, Newsmax shoot down their own aired claims on election
Many Republican voters in Georgia are angry; certain that widespread voter fraud claims of which are baseless cost President Donald Trump the election. The companies deny several statements made about them, and there is no evidence any voting system switched or deleted votes in the 2020 election. That came days after Smartmatic sent a letter threatening legal action to Fox and two other networks popular with Trump supporters, Newsmax and One America News Network. A statement aired by Newsmax anchors on Monday, and also printed on the company website, was much broader and concerned both Smartmatic and Dominion. “No evidence has been offered that Dominion or Smartmatic used software or reprogrammed software that manipulated votes in the 2020 election,” Newsmax said.
