An email written weeks before the election by Maricopa County Elections Assistant Director Kelly Dixon demanded markers for election day, seemingly confirming the “Sharpie-gate” scandal dismissed as a conspiracy theory by fraud deniers.
Dixon sent out an email to her “amazing troubleshooters” in Oct. 2020 that seemed to give away the fraud plan that was going to be deployed on election day.
“First and foremost I want to thank you all for supporting this historic election. From my seat in the Command Center today, I finally had the chance to marvel at all the numbers and feel unbelievably grateful for all of you working so hard in support of Democracy Thanks isn’t good enough, but THANKS!!” she wrote.
“Next, we’ve heard you and we know you’re hearing issues and concerns about the Sharpie Markers. Starting tomorrow, 10/23 and through 11/2m we are asking that Clerks hand voters BALLPOINT PENS rather than markers. We NEED to use Markers on Election Day, but for now and through 11/2, hand voters a Ballpoint Pen. You have plenty of pens in your supplies right now,” Dixon added.
