SLO County’s clerk-recorder counts on herself

July 1, 2022


It’s amazing that San Luis Obispo County’s appointed clerk recorder Elaina Cano, relatively unknown, who barely campaigned if at all, would have such a high percentage of the current election results.

As of the June 25 update, the clerk’s race shows Ms. Cano with 64.03% of the votes.  Compare that to Stew Jenkins, a local attorney with name recognition, a resident of SLO County for decades, and a candidate who walked door-to-door in every town in the county this past year, with only 15.42% of the vote. How is that even possible?

Is it a coincidence that Ventura and Kern counties have “appointed” clerk recorders also enjoying similar ratios of high percentages as SLO County’s Ms. Cano?

This all reminds me of an article by Katy Grimes, investigative journalist of the California Globe. In Nov. of 2020 she wrote, “How Many California Counties Use ‘Glitchy’ Dominion Voting System?”  She wrote about the Dominion programming “glitch” in Antrim Michigan that flipped 6,000 Trump votes to Biden votes. We have the same voting system here in this county.

Ms. Grimes included a list of unbelievably wide margin leads of Democrat incumbents in California who did not campaign or barely campaigned in the 2020 elections. Their challengers were out campaigning for months but didn’t even come close. The pattern is blatantly obvious.

Texas has banned the Dominion Voting System and other counties across the United States have experienced problems with it. In the Dekalb County, Georgia primary last month, commissioner candidate, Michelle Long Spears, was given machine counted results reflecting zero votes in several precincts, including her own.  After demanding a hand recount, she went from third place to first place in the primary.

During the hand recount they discovered over two thousand machine counted votes that didn’t have ballots to support those votes. Elections are being consistently overturned after hand counting the ballots.

The county clerk position is supposed to be non-partisan. However, it has become clear Ms. Cano has a bias. If you are a Democrat, she will promptly provide any election information requested. If you aren’t, she’ll make an excuse why she can’t respond to your request. When threatened with legal action, she will finally comply with the law. The California Elections Code, gives a shorter time period for responses during an election, yet Cano consistently goes beyond the allotted time frame. This is illegal behavior.

Questions: Why didn’t Elaina Cano disclose she was friends with Bruce Gibson’s wife when she was interviewing for her appointment?

How come Bruce Gibson was so against Stew Jenkins, an election law attorney with 40 plus years of experience in the clerk recorder’s position?

In a fair and transparent election, why was Cano’s husband delivering ballot boxes to the clerk’s office on election night?  I witnessed it myself, along with others.

When the person running the election is also a candidate who is counting the votes, it’s a classic case of the fox guarding the hen house.

We must demand a hand count of the clerk recorder’s race, and, if the numbers don’t match the reported results, the whole county should be hand counted.

Ms. Grimes who writes in the same article linked above:

Update: “We’re getting ready to overturn election results in multiple states,” Trump attorney Sydney Powell said on Fox Business, adding that she has enough evidence of election fraud to launch a widespread criminal investigation. “I don’t make comments without having the evidence to back it up,” Epoch Times reported. Powell said a whistleblower has come forward alleging that the voting software was designed to “rig elections.”

“He saw it happen in other countries,” she said,“We have so much evidence, I feel like it’s coming in through a fire hose.” She declined to elaborate when prompted by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.”

Ms Grimes also links to the american thinker and a article full of bs like ” The Dominion system has been known for some time to be defective” That very article has a retraction:

“American Thinker and contributors Andrea Widburg, R.D. Wedge, Brian Tomlinson, and Peggy Ryan have published pieces on AmericanThinker that falsely accuse US Dominion Inc., Dominion Voting Systems, Inc., and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation (collectively “Dominion”) of conspiring to steal the November 2020 election from Donald Trump. These pieces rely on discredited sources who have peddled debunked theories……”

This is first class gQp bullshite, rehashing voting bs from 11/16/2020.

On the other hand Dominion has a lot of juicy lawsuits in play here.

Lol someone wake up @dominionvoting.

Wow I guess people voted for competence over name recognition. Typical liberal bias.

Just do a hand recount and be done with it as you waste taxpayer money on everything else so just do it

It’s called “white guilt”; and it’s garbage.

I vote for a re-count. Too much dishonesty in politics.

This is a disgusting, delusional smear piece.

I see a libel lawsuit brought against Ms.Muir brought by Dominion, Ms. Cano and others

Same old shit….

“My candidate is loosing so it must be because of cheating”.

As far as Jenkins vs Cano maybe it’s because Cano has vast experience compared to Jenkins none.

And will CalCoastConservative News print opposing opinions much like they didn’t during the campaigns?

Your example of an error in ONE COUNTY does not persuade me that “Elections are being consistently overturned after hand counting the ballots,” as you put it. Can you provide evidence of such, uhh, “consistency”? Thanks in advance.

We need to go back to all

paper ballots. No computerized machine connected to the internet is safe and even a computerized machine isolated from the internet is not safe. Believe me. I used to get paid to figure out how to do such things and it can be done.

What would that help? Losers just come up with lots of “theories” about how those are fraudulent as well. Look at the absurd “suitcases of ballots” lie that was put out as truth in the trump lie encyclopedia.
