Video Shows Pennsylvania Official Admitting Election Laws Were Broken In 2020

This video provides yet another example of the widespread violations of election law during the last presidential election.


“So, we’re going to actually follow the law fully this time,” Delaware County, Pennsylvania’s Christina Perrone told fellow election-related workers during a Zoom meeting after the November 2020 election. This video—the latest obtained by The Federalist—provides yet another example of widespread violations of election law during the last presidential election.

Regina Miller, a contract worker for the large Pennsylvania county, filmed the video of the April 7, 2021 Zoom meeting, which involved voting officials discussing plans for the upcoming elections, according to sources familiar with the recording. The video began with Perrone, who, according to a lawsuit filed against her, other Delaware County officials, and the county, served as a project manager for the county, saying they would “talk about that off-line”—with the “that” not specified.

The remainder of the clip, however, gave some clues, with Perrone saying she had a brief conversation with “Jim,” “and this time it’s much different than last time because we’re going to have them sign oaths. There’re going to be W4s and we need them to sign something allowing somebody else to pick up. So, we’re going to actually follow the law fully this time,” Perrone ended with a laugh.

The Federalist contacted Delaware County, inquiring on the identity of “Jim” and the other participants in the call and seeking comment on videos filmed by the whistleblower. The public relations director for the Pennsylvania county, Adrienne Marofsky, stated that as the matter involved “pending litigation,” the county was “not responding to press questions.” Marofsky added, however, that, “The county is confident that the elections in 2020 and 2021 were conducted fairly and fully complied with state and federal laws.”

Perrone seemed to think otherwise, at least according to her comments in the Zoom video.

Several other videos previously obtained by The Federalist capture an array of troubling discussions also related to the 2020 election, including “Delaware County officials destroying election material or blocking out ‘derogatory’ information in the copies made in response to the Right to Know Request” submitted to county officials by residents seeking copies of documents to confirm the November election results.

Another video captured a man identified for The Federalist by sources familiar with the recordings as James Savage, the chief custodian and voting machine warehouse supervisor for the Delaware County Voting Machine Department during the November 2020 election.

As The Federalist previously reported, Savage is seen on tape “inquiring on ‘recreating data’” from the November 2020 election. The recording then shows an individual off-camera offering a “suggested approach that would entail recreating results for ‘these jokers,’ and ‘then create another set for the next set of jokers’ — an apparent reference to the individuals who filed the Right-to-Know request — ‘but we cut it up and then we create a permanent record.’”

The Federalist previously asked Savage’s attorney, J. Conor Corcoran, about the whistleblower tape showing Savage discussing recreating election data for Delaware County, inquiring: “Why would there be a need to recreate the election data with V-drives?”

Corcoran, who represents Savage in a defamation case the voting machine warehouse supervisor filed against two local poll watchers as well as Donald Trump and his legal team, did not respond to that question or others after The Federalist refused to provide him the identity of its source.

However, late last month, the two poll workers Savage had sued for defamation filed the videos, along with other evidence in support of their motion to dismiss Savage’s defamation case. In response, Savage’s attorney, Corcoran, filed a motion asking the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to strike the videos and other material filed in the case.

In arguing the material submitted by the poll workers should be stricken from the court record, Savage’s attorney maintained it “contain[ed] scandalous and impertinent” matters, including “the irrelevant and false allegation that [Savage] ‘conspired with James Allen to ‘get rid’ of the ‘pad and second scanners; [and to] hide and secrete November 3, 2020, election data, materials, and results.” James Allen is the director of election operations for Delaware County.

Savage’s denial of any conspiracy with Allen concerns yet another video The Federalist had obtained after Savage and other Delaware County officials were sued by local residents for alleged violations of state election law, as well as claims of a conspiracy following the election to hide the many problems and illegalities that occurred during the November 2020 election.

That video captured Savage speaking with an individual identified by those with knowledge of the lawsuit as Allen. In the video obtained by The Federalist, Allen is heard telling Savage, “Then get rid of the pads and the second scanners.”

“We can’t talk about it anymore,” the tape captures Savage replying. When Allen questions, “Why?” Savage explains, “It’s a felony.”

The Philadelphia trial court has yet to rule on Savage’s request that the videos and other court filings be stricken from the case, but even if they are excluded in that case, the whistleblower videos raise many questions for Delaware County officials, including what laws were not “fully followed,” as Perrone put it in the latest video obtained by The Federalist.

The questions should not stop at Delaware County or Pennsylvania, however, or even be considered apart from the revelations continuing to grow throughout the country of violations of election law.

From Wisconsin, where state officials ignored election code provisions mandating the use of a “special voting deputy” in nursing homes, to Georgia, where the secretary of state has launched yet another investigation into problems with the November 2020 election, the issues are many. And the whistleblower videos suggest that what is happening behind the scenes is even worse.

But rather than even acknowledge the many documented problems with the last election cycle, congressional Democrats and President Biden seek to cement chaos into American elections by gutting state election-integrity laws such as voter-ID requirements with the so-called “Freedom to Vote Act” and the “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.” Those who disagree with this approach are “domestic enemies,” according to our supposed unifier-in-chief who spoke to crowds in Georgia last week to demand passage of the two bills.

It’s time for ordinary Americans to make the demands, however, and the whistleblower videos from Delaware County, Pennsylvania, provide hope the public will realize our country faces a systemic problem. It is not a voter-suppression problem: It is an election-integrity problem.
