Registered Democrat in Colorado Arrested for Reportedly Tampering With a Voting Machine

Colorado man is arrested for inserting a USB thumb drive into a voting machine.

A registered Democrat in Colorado has been arrested for tampering with a voting machine after it was discovered that he had inserted a USB thumb drive into the voting machine. Election officials claim that it did not have any effect on voting. But, coming from Democrats, I am highly suspicious. Why have a port if it does nothing? Richard Patton, of Pueblo, was arrested without incident on suspicion of committing a voting crime during the primaries in Colorado.

CBS News reported:

“On the afternoon of June 28, poll workers heard noises coming from a voting booth. When a poll worker went to investigate and clean the machine, they saw an error message and notified a supervisor. Tamper-evident seals on the machine appeared to be disturbed, the secretary’s office said. The machine was immediately taken out of service for investigation.”

 “Election officials in Colorado use locks and tamper-evident seals on voting equipment, so it becomes apparent if someone has tried to access it. Trigger alerts make machines inoperable if someone tries to tamper with them.”

“USB thumb drive into a voting machine at a polling station during the primary election in June, authorities said.”

The odd thing is that Patton did not vote on that day. He was identified because he had to present his ID after arriving at the polls. This is according to Gilbert Ortiz, Pueblo County’s clerk and recorder.

The Pueblo Police Department said in a statement:

“Detectives from the Pueblo Police Department High-Tech Crime Unit were able to identify 31-year-old, Richard Patton as the suspect that attempted to tamper with the voting station.”

 “We would like to assure the community that all voter safeguards put in place to protect the voter process were successful. No information has been found to be breached at this time.”

From The Daily Sentinel

A Colorado man who is a registered Democrat has been arrested on suspicion of tampering with voting equipment by allegedly inserting a USB thumb drive into a voting machine at a polling station during the primary election in June, authorities said.

No elections data were accessed, and the June 28 incident didn’t cause any major disruption to voting, authorities said. But it heightened concerns among election officials and security experts that conspiracy theories related to the 2020 presidential election could inspire some voters to meddle with — or even attempt to sabotage — election equipment.

Experts say even unsuccessful breaches could become major problems in the days leading up to and on Tuesday’s midterm election, causing delays at polling places or sowing the seeds of misinformation campaigns.

Richard Patton, 31, of Pueblo was arrested on Thursday by members of the Pueblo Police Department High-Tech Crime Unit for investigation of tampering with voting equipment, a felony, and cybercrime-unauthorized access, a misdemeanor, the department said in a statement.

Court records indicate Patton was being held without bond at the Pueblo County Judicial Center. Gilbert Ortiz, Pueblo County’s clerk and recorder, confirmed Friday that Patton has been a registered Democratic voter since 2019, when he switched his affiliation from the Green Party.

Election officials in Colorado use locks and tamper-evident seals on voting equipment, so it becomes apparent if someone has tried to access it. Trigger alerts make machines inoperable if someone tries to tamper with them, which is what happened in Pueblo.

    My investigation into a DHS program that instructed law enforcement to treat Christians as terrorists won me the 2014 CJN Journalist of the Year award. Here is a video of Glenn Beck reading my article on his program: I am a troll bridge. You can cross me, but you will pay a price.

  2. DetroitDom says:

    There are no seals on access to the machines via the internet AND THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!

    Want to count votes ? USE REAL PEOPLE AT EACH POLLING PLACE! Have reps from the Dem & GOP in a separate room count the votes as the ballots come in. Tally the votes in front of CCTV and video equipment. Any questionable ballots get set aside for the lawyers to look at.

    • PAUL says:

      Can u just hear the arguments ensuing with that? Any vote for a dem must be counted, any vote for a republican must be thrown out if even the slightest thing wrong
