After gaslighting and attacking a concerned public for 2+ years about election integrity, Soros-backed SOS, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, wants to force New Mexicans to waste millions of dollars on more faulty Dominion machines

Soros-backed Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse-Oliver, is attempting to get a new Dominion election system certified for use in New Mexico. The current version is Dominion Democracy Suite 5.4, but Toulouse-Oliver wants to switch to Democracy Suite 5.17, which will necessitate the purchase of new equipment.

Toulouse-Oliver spent almost $7 million dollars on Dominion products leading up to the 2020 election. Apparently, she already wants to replace many of those expensive machines with more vulnerable equipment. Toulouse-Oliver is proposing to add Dominion ICX ballot marking devices and Dominion ICP tabulators to the lineup of vulnerable election equipment used in New Mexico.  The documents provided for public review don’t disclose exactly how much more money New Mexicans are expected to shell out for these machines, but it will likely run into millions of dollars.  ( )

Dominion ICP and ICX machines were used in Antrim County, Michigan in the 2020 General Election where thousands of votes were found to have been flipped from Trump to Biden. A lawsuit filed by attorney Matt DePerno over the catastrophic failure of the machines was one of the only lawsuits that the corrupt judiciary allowed to move forward following all the documented irregularities in the 2020 election. Multiple expert investigations were completed as part of the lawsuit and their expert reports can be found here.

Among the issues discovered by experts was that the Dominion ICX machines had the ability to connect to the internet and had accessed two foreign IP addresses at some point. This conclusion was supported by Dominion’s own contract with Antrim County that stated modems would be provided in the machines.

Nationally recognized vulnerability expert, Jeffrey Lenberg, who had a 31-year career at Sandia Labs protecting our nation’s critical infrastructure, was also able to demonstrate that both the tabulator and the election management system used in Antrim County could be easily subverted to report results that did not match ballots scanned through the system. These are the faulty, vulnerable machines the SOS is eager to bring into New Mexico.

In direct opposition to the experts’ proof of internet connection, the CEO of Dominion, John Poulos, lied under oath to the Michigan Senate when he stated that Dominion machines have no ability to connect to the internet. Just this week, John Poulos told TIME that he expects his company’s business to “go to zero” because of the public’s mistrust.

Possibly the most shocking thing about the SOS’s proposal for the new equipment is that she is misleading the certification committee and the public about the overall election process to attempt to ram through a certified system that she has no intention of using in the way it has been presented.

The document submitted to the committee titled “Dominion Voting Systems D-Suite 5.17 Test Report” contains the following figure that is intended to establish the overall election process and the interaction of the various equipment and software: ( Voting Systems D-Suite 5-17 Test Report-Rev-03.pdf)

The last step in the schematic shows “Results and Audit Reports,” implying that the certified software will be used to process the election results and create the audit trail as required by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA).

The Estancia News has reported in depth here and here on the fact that the SOS and the county clerks are not actually processing elections on certified Dominion software, but are migrating both the election night reporting file and the official results over to an uncertified, internet-connected, all-inclusive software called SERVIS for processing. ( ;

This process is illegal because state and federal law require certified software be used to create the audit trail and canvass documents. State and federal law also prevent election officials from providing any path for election night reporting and official election results to “mix” – but SERVIS processes both sets of data. Lastly, the cloud-based SERVIS software gives the SOS access to the entire state’s election data before the individual counties have certified their elections – something she has no statutory authority to be involved in.

To implement Dominion Democracy Suite 5.17, Toulouse-Oliver must gain the approval of the Voting System Certification Committee. The committee members are Raja Sambandum (Department of Technology Designee), Amanda Lopez Askin (Dona Ana County Clerk), Peggy Carabajal (Former Valencia County Clerk), Cara Cooke (Eddy County Chief Deputy), and John Blair (Santa Fe City Manager and Former Deputy Secretary of State).
