Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign photographer, Aric Thompson, served as a Dominion Voting Systems (Dominion) technician representative in Fulton County. The photographer described Harris as his “long time client” – over four years, according to him. In a similar Facebook post, Thompson also mentioned that he was working with Democratic activist Stacey Abrams.
“Now that I’m home, contracts have been signed and I’ve been vetted by security, I can spill the beans on my big shoot! I’ll be the official photographer for Senator Kamala Harris who is running for President in 2020! I’ve been her Atl [sic] photographer for a while now so it was a great surprise when I got the call to shoot for her during her fundraising events on Sunday! Added Bonus I forgot to mention! I leave from shooting for Kamala and head to shoot an event with Stacey Abrams…! Blessed!”
Thompson was introduced as a Dominion on-site technician near the beginning of this year. He served as an elections systems representative throughout the primaries and the general election tabulations.
His photography Facebook page confirmed that he was a representative for the Dominion tabulation machines during the vote counting.
Additionally, Thompson confirmed that he assisted with the recount and is preparing to assist in the runoff election.
Dominion has been the primary focus for attorney Sidney Powell’s series of lawsuits alleging mass voter fraud. Powell alleged that Dominion used a software lineage that was created for the sole purpose of rigging Venezuelan elections in favor of dictator Hugo Chavez.
All of Georgia’s counties used Dominion’s machines – part of a “statewide voting system rollout.” Notably, the state of Texas rejected Dominion for use as their voting systems, citing security concerns.
Following Election Day, multiple reports of glitches and delays within Dominion’s systems surfaced. As reported previously, Fulton County had to re-scan ballots after discovering discrepancies between the number of scanned ballots and votes received. Officials reported that they didn’t know why the information didn’t transfer properly into the system.
During the hand recount, Thompson’s precinct in Floyd County discovered 2,600 uncounted ballots. In Fayette County an additional 2,755 votes were discovered uncounted. A majority of those votes were for President Donald Trump.
Thompson’s last post mentioning the elections occurred November 6th, ahead of the recounts.
