Witness at Giuliani’s election hearing in Michigan says ‘all Chinese look alike’ as she argues for voter IDs as contract worker claims she ‘saw ballots being removed from warehouse’

  • The witness made the assertion while at the Michigan House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday 
  • Two-day hearing featured several witnesses who claimed that they witnessed mass election fraud 
  • Woman advocated for voter ID requirements, claiming that people could otherwise say they were someone else and vote on their behalf 
  • Melissa Carone, a woman who claimed to have worked as a contractor for Dominion Voting System, said that she witnessed fraud at a warehouse
  • ‘I know for a fact that there was illegal activity going on there,’ Carone declared at the hearing 

One of Rudy Giuliani‘s  witnesses speaking at the Michigan House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday claimed that ‘all Chinese look alike’ when advocating for voter ID requirement in the state. 

The woman’s comments follow a series of cringeworthy moments that have plagued Giuliani’s efforts to swing the election in favor for President Donald Trump by claiming that there was massive voter fraud in the election. 

‘The other representative said that you can actually show up and vote without an ID, it’s shocking. How can you allow that to happen.,’ the unidentified witness pondered during the hearing in Lansing.

‘A lot of people think all Indians look alike, I think all  Chinese look alike, so how would you tell?’

The comment solicited light chuckles from others in the room before the woman continued with her point. 

‘If some child shows up you can be anybody and you can vote. And if somebody with my name, you can’t even tell my name, anyone can vote on my behalf. So ID should be the basic requirement,’ she concluded.

The woman’s incendiary remarks were not the only questionable moment from the two-day hearing. 

Additional clips feature Melissa Carone, a woman who claimed to have worked as a contractor for Dominion Voting System.

Carone explained during the hearing that while working as a contractor, workers were shuttled to a facility called the ‘Chicago warehouse’ where she witnessed a majority of the alleged fraud.  

‘I know for a fact that there was illegal activity going on there,’ Carone declared at the hearing, claiming that people had ‘pictures’ of boxes being carried out of the warehouse.

At one point during the hearing, Carone engaged in a tense exchange with GOP Rep. Steve Johnson when he questioned some of her allegations. She repeatedly referenced an affidavit that she signed as a means to give credence to her allegations.

‘I have an affidavit. I am a mother, I have two children, I have two degrees,’ she boasted. ‘I don’t know any woman in the world that would write an affidavit under oath just to write it. You can go to prison for this!’ 

Carone’s affidavit was included in the Michigan lawsuit that the Trump team filed in hopes of stopping the election certification of Wayne County, the Daily Beast reports. 

Not only was the request denied by a judge, but the same judge said that Carone’s allegations were ‘simply not credible.’
