DOJ Researcher Releases Study Indicating Massive Election Fraud in Georgia and Pennsylvania

by Debra Heine


A researcher at the Department of Justice on Tuesday released a 25-page report indicating a high probability of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. World-renown economist John Lott Ph.D., examined election results from Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as potential election fraud in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

“This paper’s approach allows us to quantify how large a potential problem vote fraud and other abnormalities might be in the 2020 election,” Dr. Lott wrote.

White House advisor Peter Navarro heralded Lott’s study results on Twitter:

Navarro released his own study of six contested states earlier this month, alleging “a coordinated strategy” to steal the election, “or unfairly tilt the playing field in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket.”

Lott’s study compared Fulton County Georgia’s precincts to similar precincts in neighboring counties that had no allegations of fraud. The purpose of the exercise, Lott wrote, was “to isolate the impact of Fulton county’s vote-counting process (including potential fraud).”

In 2016, there was little difference between Fulton County and its surrounding counties, according to Lott. But in 2020, with  controls for demographic and in-person voting variables, he found that President Trump’s percentage of absentee votes was 7.81 percent lower in Fulton county than precincts in neighboring counties.

In measuring the difference in President Trump’s vote share of the absentee ballots for these adjacent precincts, we account for the difference in his vote share of the in-person voting and the difference in registered voters’ demographics. The best estimate shows an unusual 7.81% drop in Trump’s percentage of the absentee ballots for Fulton County alone of 11,350 votes, or over 80% of Biden’s vote lead in Georgia.

“In layman’s terms, in precincts with alleged fraud, Trump’s proportion of absentee votes was depressed – even when such precincts had similar in-person Trump vote shares to their surrounding countries. The fact that the shift happens only in absentee ballots, and when a country line is crossed, is suspicious,” Lott said.

Lott applied the same approach to Allegheny County in Pennsylvania for both absentee and provisional ballots and estimated that “the number of fraudulent votes from those two sources” was about 55,270 votes.

“The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden’s win in both states,” said Lott.

He also examined the suspiciously high turnout rates in the two states.

“Increased fraud can take many forms: higher rates of filling out absentee ballots for people who hadn’t voted, dead people voting, ineligible people voting, or even payments to legally registered people for their votes,” Lott wrote.

He estimated that there were 70,000 to 79,000 “excess” votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania, enough vote fraud to account
for Joe Biden’s win in both states.

Lott looked at voter turnout rates in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, comparing counties in which voter fraud was alleged to other counties where it was not.

He concluded that if you add those states, the total number of fraudulent votes in the 2020 election increases to up to 289,000 excess votes.

The voter turnout rate data also indicates that there are significant excess votes in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin as well. While the problems shown here are large, there are two reasons to believe that they are underestimates: 1) the estimates using precinct level data assume that there is no fraud occurring with in person voting and 2) the voter turnout estimates do not account for ballots for the opposing candidate that are lost, destroyed, or replaced with ballots filled out for the other candidate.

Lott was appointed as senior adviser for research and statistics at the DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs in October of 2020.

    The link to the report has been removed. Im shocked

    Every STATE AND COUNTY needs to release the dominion machines and do REAL AUDITS to prove to US they were not fraudulant!

  3. Scott

    There has to be something really big Pelosi Schumer Biden and many more have to hide to go to all these extremes to Destroy President Trump ,they tried riots to get people to not vote for Trump that didn’t work so they had to rigg the election in several states to make sure Biden won the election , both Republicans and Democrats have something BIG to hide and Trump must go or they will be exposed. Wake up America we are under attack.

    Hand recount only shows if the machine counted correctly why won’t the allow a look into the machines why are the so adamant about not looking into the machines. Because that’s where the truth lies. Georgia found Fraud when they looked into a machine

    The statistical anomalies found by Dr. Lott indicate why there are official recounts and audits. Let’s see the results of the audits in GA and PA.

    The cheat had to be massive because Trump was so far ahead and they had to come up with so many votes. The elites put up the candidates that we vote for and outsiders like Trump cannot be allowed to continue. The uni-party runs Washington and are in control of the purse strings where the real power is. Trump who put America first could not be bought or controlled and has to go. I believe the fraud goes much further including small, local races at the state level. It has been suggested that Doug Collins who upset the GOP by running against Kelly Loeffler was the real candidate who won in that race. Mechanisms for fraud that has been allowed to creep into our election systems are likely by design.

      How did that “massive” fraud escape detection by all of the hand recounts and audits? Oh, right: all of those people are in on the deception. The entire nation is in on the fraud, but they reelected Trump. That makes no sense.

      1. I have an explanation, 1) many Trump mail-in ballots are in the landfill, and 2) ballots for Biden of people that didn’t vote. There would need to be a re-evaluation of mail-in ballot signatures and post election canvassing to ask registered voters questions like. “Election records show that you did not vote in the General election. Is that true?” They could either answer, “Hell no! That’s not correct. I voted using a mail in ballot” or “That’s correct, I did not vote” For the ones that did vote, they could decide to say who they voted for.

        1. Bonita Krajewski

          If that were true the the voting for the area in question should be disreguarded since by law all ballots and all voting material need to be preserved for 22 months. Missing ballots would be an indication of fraudulent election.

      2. Pops

        For example, in one county when 107k of 129k ballots were rejected by the machine (most likely because the ballots was not printed with an accurate page alignment) and was adjudicated by one democrat person (against rules) and the results were they concluded almost all of the votes were for Biden and a new ballot is made and the old one is destroyed, when the recount is done, what are they counting?

        Freon – the massive fraud occurred in 5 -7 democratic city counting hubs in the 5 -7 States that went for Biden, instead of Trump.
