Ross: Ballot watchers have a suspicious interest in monitoring voting

One more thought on the ballot box monitoring going on in Arizona.
As I mentioned yesterday there is a group called “Clean Elections USA” that’s been recruiting volunteers to monitor ballot drop boxes in Maricopa County. They use their phones to record any suspicious behavior, such as people pulling out hundreds of bogus ballots and trying to stuff them into the drop boxes, which is what supposedly happened in 2020, according to the conspiracy-believers.

But as I was Googling images of Arizona’s ballot boxes, I noticed they’re like ours. They have a narrow slot designed to take one ballot envelope at a time. That means any conspiracy operation hoping to hijack the election with “hundreds of thousands” of bogus ballots – which is what the “Clean Elections” group alleges happened in 2020 – would need to recruit hundreds of people who would then have to stand for hours at drop boxes feeding ballots into that slot!
And then it hit me.
Clean Elections has been organizing teams of ten monitors for every ballot box.
Why would you need ten? Unless––
–– this is a false flag operation!
Now, I’m not saying I have any proof; this is strictly speculation for entertainment purposes. But if you know anything about conspiracies, you know there’s always a false flag operation involved.
So suppose these ballot monitors are actually the ballot mules? Suppose that the body armor they wear is actually stuffed with phony ballots?
Suppose the real reason those ten people are camping out at the ballot boxes is not to monitor ordinary voters but to wait until the drop-off site is deserted so they can reach into their camouflage jackets and feed their bogus ballots into the slot. Or – simply look the other way while their co-conspirators do it? What better cover story than to say the reason we’re camping here for hours and hours is to “protect the integrity of the election.”
Again, I stress this is merely a thought experiment. It’s probably crazy. But no crazier than playing soldier at a drop box.
