Ohio Confronts Elder-Fraud

October 18, 2019 —For immediate release.

Steubenville, Ohio

Team Reporting from www.stopprobatefraud.com

 

Facing the glare of the elder-fraud spotlight, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (left) is sending his top experts to address the problem in a  Steubenville public forum.

Titled “Protecting the Unprotected” the forum will be held from 12:30  pm to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Towers Building, 500 Market Street, in the 2nd floor conference room.

Ohio has battled elder-fraud for years, and the state is again in the hot-seat due to a racketeering case brought by Dr. Mehdi Saghafi from Cleveland. A racket is a crime at both state and federal levels and can be spotted when the those billing to “fix” or “manage” a  problem are the same people that caused the problem in the first place.

Dr. Saghafi’s claim is that his family was the victim of financial exploitation when his 80-year old wife was trapped in the legal maze of a court-ordered guardianship. The family claims that once  “captured” in the court system, attorneys and accountants targeted the family’s assets and  billed the family hundreds of thousands of dollars for the ”care” of his wife.

Just months before that racketeering suit was allowed to proceed,  there was the FBI investigation of Ohio Judge Diane Vettori-Caraballo (shown   left). The judge was indicted and pled guilty to charges stemming from her theft of over $100,000 from an estate for which she was the court-appointed administrator. For more on that story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gD

Ohio is not alone in the fight against fraud. Weeks ago, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel fired four of her state’s probate administrators after complaints that the attorneys had used their court-power to drain the assets of estates they controlled. See this link for  details: https://wp.me/p9585T-fH

Over the summer, Florida’s probate system made national headlines when court-appointed guardian Rebecca Fierle (right) was accused of causing the death of a man who was in her care by issuing a “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) order—without informing or getting the consent of the man who was “not to be resuscitated.” For more on this fraud story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gt

Yost’s Steubenville event features nearly a dozen speakers including four with state-wide experience in elder-fraud investigation and prosecution: Sylvia Pla-Raith; Kevin Barbeau, CFE; Michael Kaizar, CPA CFE; Kelly Igoe, JD. The session offers residents of the region a place to meet and learn about the “red flags of fraud” from Ohio’s experts in elder financial fraud.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) calls fraud “theft by deceit,” and “theft with a smile and is prosecuted every day across the USA. But in cases where the “mark” or victim is an incapacitated and/or elderly person, the issues can expand from simple fraud into a RICO and civil rights cases.

“Many people don’t know that there are thousands of people in guardianships in Ohio,” says Rosanna Miller (shown right  with her father, Clair) who is a member of the advocacy group  “Ohio Coalition to End Probate Corruption” (OCEPC). The Ohio coalition is just one of nearly a dozen grass-roots groups across the United States who  fight guardianship and elder financial abuse including  NASGA,  AAAPG and VGPR.

New federal elder-care legislation (U.S. H.R. 4174) details that there are approximately 1.3 million elderly adults in the United States who have their lives controlled in a guardianship.  These vulnerable adults have amassed roughly 50 billion dollars in assets. These figures will get bigger with the aging of the “boomer” generation and the rise in life-expectancy.

The Steubenville forum is designed to help people learn how to spot and stop fraud from the best and brightest in the area of elder fraud prevention and prosecution. The speakers will detail the warning signs of elder financial exploitation and financial crimes and give attendees tools and strategies to assist victims of financial exploitation.

In addition to the state-level experts, there will be local Jefferson-County speakers as well, including Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla; Jefferson County Attorney Jane Hanlin; Marie Holt, Ericka Kirkpatrick and probate Judge Joseph Corabi.  The forum is designed to give people in the community a local contact when they need expertise in the elder financial fraud area. Q&A sessions are expected, time permitting.

The event is free but the room holds only 125 people. Please use this link to pre-register:

EBOLA: A Worldwide Problem-Reaction-Solution Strategy?

2 Comments

cropped-wp-image-1893685289.png

By NoFakeNews

The few that control the majority like to use fraud and deception to misinform the general population.

One of the oldest tricks that’s been used repeatedly by the powers that be on the general public was the introduction of a fake crisis of some sort followed by the mass reaction of the same general public to that fake crisis which was then followed by the implementation of an already established solution to the original problem. This entire scenario is commonly known as a problem – reaction – solution strategy.

Let’s pretend that the powers that be wanted to launch a worldwide vaccination campaign on the general public. How many people do you believe would stand in line, roll up their sleeves, and stick out their arms to receive said medicine? Not too many!

Now let’s pretend that a very nasty hemorrhagic virus that is not well understood by laypersons and medical specialists alike was reported to be the next great world pandemic. Keep in mind that this hemorrhagic virus had been portrayed by the mass media and perceived by the general public as something that could bring about the deaths of many innocent people worldwide.

Finally, let’s pretend that a certain pharmaceutical company had an already patented vaccine waiting to be unveiled in a laboratory that could  supposedly neutralize or prevent the spread of the nasty hemorrhagic disease.

How many people in the general public do you think would demand that health officials make available this miracle vaccine? Oh so many!

Could the Ebola Virus be a worldwide problem – reaction – solution campaign in progress? Is it possible that the Ebola virus is not even real?

Will a vaccination campaign be announced and prepared for worldwide distribution in the future?

It’s important to observe and understand the game being played. It’s been used repeatedly throughout history by the few controlling the many. There’s always some big, bad monster hiding in a vault, waiting to be unlocked and unloaded on society.

It could be a hemorrhagic virus, a , an imaginary biological weapon, an imaginary nuclear weapon. Take your pick; the monster always serves the same purpose. It pushes or influences the people to move in a direction those in control desire. All of these deceptions are nothing more than smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand theatrics; it’s an incredible magic show.

What do you think about this subject?

Medicare Advantage Money Grab Fraud and billing mistakes cost Medicare — and taxpayers — tens of billions last year

Leave a comment

Congressional auditor said federal health officials need to crack down on billing errors by insurers

By Fred Schulte

 Updated:

Federal health officials made more than $16 billion in improper payments to private Medicare Advantage health plans last year and need to crack down on billing errors by the insurers, a top congressional auditor testified Wednesday.

James Cosgrove, who directs health care reviews for the Government Accountability Office, told the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee that the Medicare Advantage improper payment rate was 10 percent in 2016, which comes to $16.2 billion.

Adding in the overpayments for standard Medicare programs, the tally for last year approaches $60 billion — which is almost twice as much as the National Institutes of Health spends on medical research each year.

“Fundamental changes are necessary” to improve how the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ferrets out billing mistakes and recoups overpayments from health insurers, he said.

Medicare serves about 56 million people, both those 65 and older and disabled people of any age. About 19 million have chosen to enroll in Medicare Advantage plans as an alternative to standard Medicare.

Federal officials predict the Medicare Advantage option will grow further as massive numbers of baby boomers retire in coming years.

Standard Medicare has a similar problem making accurate payments to doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, according to statistics presented at the hearing. Standard Medicare’s payment error rate was cited at 11 percent, or $41 billion for 2016.

Last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the arrest of 412 people, some 100 doctors among them, in a scattershot of health care fraud schemes that allegedly ripped off the government for about $1.3 billion, mostly from Medicare.

CMS official Jonathan Morse said that the “largest contributors” to billing mistakes in standard Medicare were claims from home health care and inpatient rehabilitation facilities.

Some lawmakers appeared frustrated that CMS cannot say for sure how much of the “improper payments” in both Medicare options are caused by fraud. The agency uses the term broadly to cover billing fraud, waste and abuse, as well as simply overcharges and underpayments.

Professional Probate: 3 Billion annually in stolen estates

Professional Probate: 3 Billion annually in stolen estates

While it is imperative for the organized criminal rings operating under cover of probate courts to convince the public that it is only squabbling family members who abuse, neglect, financially exploit and mentally torture the elderly, the fact is, 95% of these cases are committed by professional fiduciary’s; strangers to the family and the victim.  Commonly referred to as predatory guardians, these individuals have amassed massive fortunes at the expense of the elderly who committed the new age crime of “aging E006039with assets”. 

The PEW Research Center Reports:

According to a report recently issued by the Pew Research Center, on average Americans over the age of 65 have 47 times as much wealth as Americans under the age of 35.

And every one of them have been targeted by professional predators just waiting in the wings to relieve them of their life’s financial accruals.

“This system of theft will continue until the entire estate has been stolen leaving the victim penniless. At this point, Medicare and Medicaid are used as the cash cow to cover medical expenses and the inflated charges of nursing, the doctors’ visits and vast amounts of medications are charged off to these services costing these services millions each year in padded billing. ”

State statutes prohibit isolation

In every state are statutes regarding the treatment of the elderly, and especially those who are unfortunate enough to be rendered a ward of the state.  And, in every state, city, county, these statutes are ignored, violated and dismissed by the so-called [probate judge] in order to allow the predator unfettered access to all assets and for absolute control of the victim.  This is in effect, a civil death.  It is also grand larceny sanctioned by the court with the judge fully anticipating profiting from the activity.

CRIMINAL/CIVIL CHARGES FILED AGAINST WASHINGTON STATE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT

20 Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

CRIMINAL/CIVIL CHARGES FILED AGAINST WASHINGTON STATE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT/MEDIA OFFICIALS FOR ONGOING SYSTEMIC FINANCIAL/CONSTITUTIONAL FRAUD AND TREASON

Rebecca Em Campbell-Plaintiff

Seattle, Washington State-America September 20, 2012

Criminal/civil charges have been filed with referenced evidentiary weblinks against officials of the Washington State corporate government, as well as media corporations operating in Washington State , for perpetrating/enabling systemic financial/constititutional fraud and treason.

The allegations in these legal actions specifically expose what has been called the CAFR scam, with its implications of fraudulent unnecessary budget cuts to government services at all levels of government all across America as a result of theft by the private Federal Reserve System. These are accompanied by related allegations that the Washington State Constitution of 1889, as well as the present US corporate government, are fraudulent, and that failure to disclose this constitutes treason on the part of state corporate government/media officials.

These criminal/civil charges have been filed with the Federal Grand Jury of the Ninth District Court, the FBI, the Offices of the King County Sheriff, and that of the Seattle Chief of Police and Seattle City Prosecutor here in Seattle . They have also been filed in the state capital of Olympia/Thurston County with the Offices of the Thurston County Sherriff, the Thurston County Prosecutor, the Olympia Chief of Police and the Olympia City Prosecutor.

Copies of these charges’ Proofs of Filing can be seen below. All civil/criminal charges filed at the local level were hand-delivered, with receipts signed at the front desk for documentation of filing. Those filed at the federal level even if local, as well as those filed at a distance in the Washington State capital of Olympia were filed via certified mail.

Those charges filed with the Federal Grand Jury were filed without return receipt to better ensure that they would reach the Foreperson without the interposition of possibly compromised court clerks or US attorneys; accordingly, a copy of the screen shot from the delivery tracking portion of the US Postal Service website has been scanned to show such proper filing, with delivery on September 10, 2012.

It should be mentioned that two attempts to file these charges with the King County Prosecutor’s Office were unsuccessful. In both instances, clerks connected with this office rejected the packet of charges. They stated that sovereign citizens did not have the right to file criminal charges, and that all civil charges against the state need to be filed as a civil lawsuit at the sovereign citizen’s expense — now $400 — with the district court to be decided by state corporate government-appointed judges. This clearly no-win proposition for the plaintiff was immediately rejected by this plaintiff.

All of the filings of these charges been done in such a way to ensure as well as is possible that appropriate action might be taken on the part of law enforcement/judicial agencies located in Washington State, and that if it is not, that such derogation of duty will become immediately and publicly apparent, as seen in the paragraph above concerning Proof of Public Disservice by the King County Prosecutor’s Office.

Reverse mortgages…exploitation of the elderly

3 Comments

We’ve all see the ads for reverse mortgages aimed at elderly persons who have managed to pay off their homes and remain in them.  Here is the part of the advertisement they don’t tell you.  All of our elderly are at risk of exploitation not only from predatory guardianships, but also from predatory lenders.  

______________________________________________ 

 

Live Link:   elderfinancialterrorism.com

Our story is about my parents, Patricia and Richard Hickerson who were sold a reverse mortgage that was not needed or appropriate for their circumstances.  It’s a tragic story of deceit, fraud and purposefully targeting vulnerable seniors to deprive them of their property, retirement, dignity and quality of life.MOM AND DAD’S HEALTHIn April of 2002 Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and could no longer balance a checkbook or manage the family finances as she had all her married life.  By 2003 mom was unable make change for a twenty dollar bill.  She required assistance in basic activities of daily living.      REVERSE MORTGAGE TIMELINE:The Reverse Mortgage my parents received was:One time lump sum payment           $  81,000                  Financial Freedom and Pacific Reverse Mortgage prey on vulnerable seniors by never doing the “right thing” to make sure the consequences of their loans will do no harm.  They did nothing but  gain my parents trust, and steal their home.    HOW THE REVERSE MORTGAGE AFFECTED OUR FAMILY
:
One month after signing the reverse mortgage contract Dad passed away.  It breaks my heart that Dad’s dying wish to care for mom for the rest of her life, was stolen from him.  If the terms were explained simply and honestly that for a one time payment of $81,000 (15% *of their property value) they would pay $25,000* in fees and costs in exchange for their home, dad would never have agreed.  Let’s be real – who in their right mind would
agree to these terms?  
Please help us fulfill Dad’s dying wish to provide care for mom.  Please donate today to help
provide the care mom needs at the end of her life.

Mom and Dad were good, caring, and trusting  people who worked all their lives to provide for each other and their family.  They lived in a modest home they took pride in for 25 years.  Mom and Dad volunteered together delivering  “Meals on Wheels” and Mom volunteered for the city and thrift shop.  They enjoyed giving back to the community where they lived.

Dad had been suffering from 9 major illnesses for more than 10 years, including heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes.  By 2004 he also had metastatic cancer in his head and advanced liver cancer.  Dad knew he was dying but  he never told anyone.  He never complained or told us how much he was suffering.   More

“Campaign Contributions received from any source other than individual United States citizens is nothing more than bribery and the practice should be made illegal. The passage of this bill is a prime example.”

The big international food conglomerates must be celebrating today as the US Senate passed it’s version of the Food Safety and Modernization Act by a vote of 73 to 25. The only amendment to the Food Safety Modernization Act allowed was the Tester Amendment which exempts small operations (earning under $500,000 a year) from having to file a food safety plan. Congress must now pass a final form of HR 2749 and S 510, which President Obama is expected to sign into law.

The Socialist Democrats in the Senate have done it again by pushing big government further onto family farms and ranches and into our local stores and homes.

Cap and trade is a license to cheat and steal

Special to The Examiner
May 19, 2009

One of James Bond’s first movies captured attention with the title “License to Kill.” Today, Washington, D.C., is setting the stage to compete with Hollywood in the sensational headlines market. Members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee are in the process of scripting climate change legislation worthy of being titled “License to Cheat and Steal.”

This cap-and-trade bill — actually called the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, or the Waxman-Markey bill — would mandate severe reductions in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Since emissions are mostly generated by energy use (heating your home, cooling your groceries, driving to work, etc.), these targets would effectively mandate energy rationing. Since these targets are not based on economic or technological realities, there can only be one outcome: much higher energy prices. More

____________________________________

The recent bailouts of financial institutions to the tune of several trillions of dollars should have been a wake up call for all of us; the duality of the justice system never more apparent as when it became clear that a grand theft on an unimaginable scale had taken place and these same institutions were now holding the country hostage, threatening total economic collapse if we did not capitulate and infuse them with cash so they could continue raping and pillaging the country.

We have a prison system that now holds 2.5 million people and this does not include the hundreds of thousands of people being held in city and county jails for petty crimes.  While a percentage of these prisoners do need to be incarcerated because of violent crimes, more than half of those serving time or being held have harmed no one and in fact are there because of some statutory code or regulation infraction.  But, they will serve time, pay fines, and Wall Street will sell prisoner bonds all over the world, for profit.

Doesn’t any one find it strange that not one of those Wall Street parasites; not one of those corporate high rollers who took millions upon millions in pay and bonuses and who continue to do so even after taxpayer money was stolen to bail them out, even after billions and billions was borrowed in the name of the citizens, not one of them spent a day in jail?  Did you hear one of those senators or representatives or any one from the justice department calling for prosecuting these people?  Has anyone other than the sacrificial lamb, Bernie Madoff, ever seen the inside of a jail as a result of their corrupt financial practices and the harm it caused others?  No, you didn’t.  And, the only reason Madoff got nailed was because the people he harmed most were wealthy!  It would seem obvious that graft, theft and corruption are ok just as long as it only affects the little people. 

Even as the corrupt practices were exposed, the contrived schemes to defraud investors and the public became public knowledge, not one of those CEO’s, their staff, their managers or accountants….no one…..was ever charged with a crime or prosecuted.  The IRS didn’t swoop in to seize their assets; no freezes were put on their bank accounts or investments.  Not one palatial home was seized and sold to repay the debt.  Not one yacht was auctioned off nor one private jet.  These corporate raiders not only stole America’s wealth….the government and the justice system made sure they got to keep it. 

Now compare this to a petty thief who breaks into a home and steals a few hundred dollars worth of someone else’s stuff.  A crime has been committed, and the offender will spend a mandatory sentence of five years, minimally.  Everyone from the department making the arrest, to the bail-bondsman, to the attorney and judges, the prisons and Wall Street makes money off that prisoner.  

If any small business had through its own bad management practices or through created schemes to defraud its customers, come to the brink of collapse for no other reason than its own devious dealings had rendered it insolvent; would we advocate taking our tax money to bail them out so they could continue their crime?  Why did we do this with these corrupt financial institutions? 

The corruption that occurred in the financial industry was not a result of too many regulations as most regulations had been struck down under Bush2.  It was a result of a lack of regulation which allowed corporations of all kinds to run without any kind of control.  It would be great to think or believe those running these institutions would be guided by some kind of moral or ethical compass, but history has shown us that nothing could be further from the truth.  More

Al Gore’s Confession: CO2 Not the Major Cause of Global Warming

liarFarm Wars

We are not in a global warming phase. That is a blatant lie. The following story by Paul Joseph Watson confirms that Al Gore’s CO2 “theory” is bunk, and right out of the horse’s mouth. But will this have an impact on Obama’s decision to sign the Copenhagen treaty or play a part in the carbon tax or cap and trade agenda? NOT! These people will continue with their world domination agenda via the global warming scam no matter what lies are revealed.

Time to stand up and be counted people! Shout this as far and wide as you can: AL GORE LIED ABOUT CO2! What else is he lying about? Well, I would say, just about everything.  READ MORE…

Monsanto Lies, Again (and Again and Again)

From:   CORPORATE CRIME DAILY   

http://corporatecrime.wordpress.com/

Excerpted from the full article:
  • Two labs conducting glyphosate safety studies for Monsanto were cited for “routine falsification of data” and other offenses. One lab study claimed it used “specimens from the uteri of male rabbits….”
  • An EPA scientist found Monsanto doctored studies and covered-up the dioxin contamination of a wide range of its products. She concluded that the company’s behavior constituted “a long pattern of fraud.”
  • In response to the publication of Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking indictment of the pesticide industry, Silent Spring, Monsanto and other chemical companies launched a major p.r. offensive. The industry sponsored public forums with purported “independent” experts speaking on the benefits of pesticides; the company’s propaganda tools included publication of a pamphlet called The Desolate Years, which posited a world of massive food shortages resulting from over regulation of pesticides (the company continues to repeat this lie to this day, in countless ads and public statements suggesting that food shortages will result unless the world unquestionably accepts its genetic food experiments).
  • For decades, Monsanto dumped highly toxic PCBs in Anniston Alabama, then spent years covering up the dumping and the attendant health hazards to residents. As the Washington Post reported,

The Obama administration is quietly dusting off an effort to impose new federal quarantine regulations, which were vigorously resisted by civil liberties organizations and the airline industry when the rules were first proposed by the Bush administration nearly four years ago. 

White House officials aren’t saying what their rules might ultimately require. But the previous administration proposed giving the federal government the authority to order a “provisional quarantine” of three business days — or up to six calendar days — for those suspected of having swine flu or other illnesses listed in a presidential executive order.

 Cooperative agreements, one of the newer buzz phrases of the day is quite frankly nothing more than the sanctioning of paid bribes to state officials to implement unconstitutional mandates that violate civil rights and force the establishment of a police state. 

 Under the Unfunded Mandates Act of 1946, no state can be required to participate in, or be forced to comply with any federal law or program unless they receive some form of monetary payment to cover the anticipated costs.  No money….no compliance.  This is the reason that funding has to be approved specifically for any legislative assault on the public.  Understand that although money is approved, authorized and allocated, it does not and is most times not paid in full.  The federal government will make a grand stand announcement saying that x-amount has been allocated to the states based on needs and population, but it is seldom that money ever shows up in total.  More

There is a big difference between the spirit and the letter of the law. The key to analyzing the effects of any type of legislation that ultimately results in setting rules and regulations in motion through a set of laws is in understanding the difference between the spirit and letter of the law, and how this concept is applied towards enforcement of any particular law.

By Barbara Minton, Natural Health Editor

As the anticipated July release date for Baxter’s A/H1N1 flu pandemic vaccine approaches, an Austrian investigative journalist is warning the world that the greatest crime in the history of humanity is underway. Jane Burgermeister has recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination which is being filed in America. These actions follow her charges filed in April against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria for producing contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.

Mexican Flu Outbreak 2009: SPECIAL REPORT by Dr Leonard Horowitz

Leave a comment

pandemicHere, Dr. Horowitz urges an investigation of Dr. James S. Robertson, Englands leading bioengineer of flu viruses for the vaccine industry, and avid promoter of U.S. Government funding for lucrative biodefense contracts, along with collaborators at the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). These suspects helped Novavax, Inc., in Bethesda, Maryland, produce genetically-modified recombinants of the avian, swine, and Spanish flu viruses, H5N1 and H1N1, nearly identical to the unprecedented Mexican virus that is allegedly spreading to the United States at the time of this posting. The outbreak was precisely timed to promote the companys new research and huge vaccine stockpiling contracts.

Facts: Scientific and historical about gasoline and alcohol

1. The original automobiles ran on alcohol because when they were invented gasoline was not available.

2. Rockefeller spent $4 million (that we know of) to promote Prohibition, a ban on alcohol manufacturing in the US that started in 1919 just as the car industry was taking off.

3. When Prohibition was lifted in 1933, gasoline stations were ubiquitous and most engines ran on gasoline only.

4. Alcohol can be manufactured locally and on a community level from renewable plant material for $1 per gallon.

5. The growing of plant material for alcohol would have no effect on the price of food.

6. The growing of plants for fuel would more than neutralize the carbon created by burning alcohol for fuel.

7. In Brazil, over 50% of new cars sold can already run on 100% alcohol.

8. Producing alcohol from plant material is incredibly energy efficient.

9. The oil companies aggressively promote garbage science to deceive the public into believing that alcohol fuels: a) will cause starvation, b) are uneconomical, and c) are net polluters.

10. Gasoline is a high toxic material.

11. It is entirely unneeded to fuel our cars.

12. Oil companies like Chevron have pressured PBS, commercial TV networks and other news media to keep this basic information from the public for decades – and the censorship continues to this day.

If this massive deception were to be busted, it would:

 

1. Remove the reason that many wars are fought today

 

2. Revitalize the world economy, especially in rural area

 

3. Instantly increase the wealth and health of every person on earth

 

The fraud is this: We need gasoline.

 

The truth is we don’t now – and we never did.

Excerpt from article by Brad Friedman:

…4 of the 12 candidates selected in the Superior Court races were for candidates that I hadn’t voted for! 

…For the record, these are the CA Superior Court judge races that were marked incorrectly on my ballot by the ES&S InkaVote Plus system…

Office No. 72: I chose to vote for Harvey A. Silberman (bubble #117), ES&S InkaVote Plus selected Serena Raquel Murillo (bubble #118) for me instead.

Office No. 84: I chose to vote for Lori-Ann C. Jones (bubble #135), ES&S InkaVote Plus marked Pat Connolly (bubble #132) for me instead.

Office No. 95: I chose to vote for Patricia D. Nieto (bubble #141), ES&S InkaVote Plus printed my choice as Lance E. Winters (bubble #142) for me instead.

Office No. 125: I chose to vote for James N. Bianco (bubble #159), ES&S InkaVote Plus filled-in Bill Johnson (bubble #158) for me instead.
