The trial regarding the use of fraudulent absentee ballots in Bridgeport has begun and is being presided over by the Honorable William Clark. Losing candidate John Gomes, represented by Attorney William Bloss, is arguing that the absentee ballots should be thrown out and Gomes declared the winner.
Ms. Wanda Geter-Pataky, who is shown on video tape illegally dumping absentee ballots into drop boxes at least four times for the presumed winner – incumbent Joe Ganim - has pleaded the Fifth.
Trials are often proceeded by depositions, in which witnesses are questioned to gather enough evidence with the hope of resolving the case and avoiding trial. Depositions are confidential, but I managed to obtain the transcript of this case by greasing a few palms. This is Bridgeport after all. Below is the pre-trial deposition text, slightly edited for the sake of brevity.
Court Reporter: Do you swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God?”
Ms. Geter-Pataky: I do
Attorney Bloss: Is that you in the video depositing numerous absentee ballots into the drop boxes?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Yes
Attorney Bloss: Where did you receive these ballots?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: I didn’t receive any of them.
Attorney Bloss: So where did you get them?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: We printed them.
Attorney Bloss: So how did the signatures of the voters get on the ballots?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: We forged them.
Attorney Bloss: Do you realize that you have just admitted to multiple felonies that could result in your imprisonment?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: You are obviously not a church goer but I am. I just swore before God to tell the truth and I am telling the truth. Besides, not only am I not going to prison, but I am going to retire early and move to Delray Beach and live off my fat pension.
Attorney Bloss: After admitting in open court that you forged ballots and dumped them!?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: That ain’t happening.
Attorney Bloss: And why is that?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Because you are going to agree to allow me to plead the Fifth.
Attorney Bloss: That’s ridiculous. Why would I do that? It would weaken my client’s case.
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Because when I admit to this, my lawyer is going to ask me a few follow-up questions. He is going to ask me if I ever did this before. As I am sworn to tell the truth so help me God, I am going to say how we have been doing this forever in Bridgeport. I am going to tell how me and my pals in Hartford, New Haven and Waterbury came up with 15,000 votes on Election night of 2010 so that Malloy could beat Foley by 6,400 votes – thanks to a complaint judge who extended the time to deliver those ballots.
Attorney Bloss: That will strengthen my client’s case.
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Man. The doctor who delivered you must have dropped you on your head.
Attorney Bloss: Excuse me?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Do you think the Democrat-appointed judges and prosecutors are going to allow you to expose this? You’ll be lucky to be bagging groceries at Stop and Shop after you are disbarred.
Attorney Bloss: For representing my client?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: You must have gone to school for years to become so dumb because you could not be born so stupid. When Trump’s lawyers exposed the legalized ballot fraud that put Biden into office, we Democrats put them in their place. Our prosecutors have accused them of presenting false evidence, vexatious litigation and our judges are looking the other way. Rudy Guiliani is almost bankrupt, and Trump’s other lawyers will soon follow suit. And that Eastman clown who testified in Trump’s favor is fighting to keep his California law license.
The gall of these people. My Democratic colleagues in those swing states had to spend weeks forging the signatures on those absentee and mail-in ballots.
But after were done with Trump’s lawyers and Trump himself, no one will dare question absentee and mail-in ballots again.
Attorney Bloss: And Judge Clark is going to allow this?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Hah! All the judges are the same. They are political hacks who are paid to look the other way. The last time we got caught doing this, we had over 1000 absentee ballots and only 32 requests for them. Totally illegal. Judge Barry Stevens gave some flowery speech about how this threatens the integrity of our democracy – blah, blah, blah - and then ruled in our favor. And then our Supreme Court rubber stamped his ruling.
Attorney Bloss: But what about my client’s rights?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Your client is going to get a defective rocket job here in Bridgeport.
Attorney Bloss: A defective rocket job?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Yes. A job where you don’t have to work, and you can’t be fired.
John Gomes: When do I start?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: You’ve already started. Check your bank account.
John Gomes: Will I be able to join you at Delray Beach soon?
Ms. Geter-Pataky: Sure. We will have you over for a barbecue. You’ll love my Cosmos. I put the cranberry juice in them with an eye dropper.
Attorney Bloss: You sure this is okay with you John?
John Gomes: Works for me. I love Cosmos. Especially with Ketel One Vodka.
Ms. Geter-Pataky: We’re done here. Mr. Bloss is going to be a good boy and do what he’s told.
