VOTER FRAUD in GILMER COUNTY COURTHOUSE! Secretary of State Natalie Tennant and SOS investigator Amber Kroening suspected in COVER UP of Voter Fraud!!

By Rina McCoy/Cosmos Communicator Editor/Secretary of CWVSS-Elkins/Editor Edison Consolidated Citizens Corp-Elkins WV/Editor

The Calhoun County Secret Seven revealed that they have secret information involving the investigator for the Secretary of States office involved in cover up of election fraud in Gilmer County!

Norma Hurley the Gilmer County bookkeeper noticed that extra recording modules were ordered for the election and in all her years of working at the courthouse in the clerks office this was the first time extra modules were ordered by the county then became missing on election night and then once again turned up. Hurley quit her job after witnessing the corruption. Also there were several other eye witnesses that also believe normal procedure was broken by County Clerk Beverly Marks when she did not report results precinct by precinct as the votes came in as was done in previous years.

Hurly is convinced Amber Kroening the investigator for the state is not interested in investigating the matter at all for after meeting

Amber Kroening did not even interview those suspected of wrongdoing but claimed she was lost and bolted for the home of IKE MORRIS after talking to Norma Hurley Gilmer County Employee that resigned after witnessing VOTER FRAUD!!

with Norma Monday the 29th of November she was also suppose to meet with Marks, the County Clerk accused of wrongdoing , but said she was lost and could not find the courthouse and then bolted as fast as she could to the home of IKE MORRIS!! We can only suspect that the representative of the Secretary of State wanted to let Morris know that there is a possibility fraud really did occur and Hurly and all involved including Gilmer County members of the Secret Seven are convinced that the State will attempt to cover the matter up. Mostly all the investigator talked about was threatening people with arrest if they talked to the press about the voter fraud.

One thing is certain,  NOT EVEN ONE WITNESSES to the crimes carried out by Beverly Marks, Jean Butcher, the law firm of Butcher and Butcher, and a few others yet to be named, are willing to give the Secretary of State even the slightest morsel of information, knowing that the intention is to cover  up the matter.

Before Norma Hurley met with the investigator she made a statement, Hurley said,

“Beverly Marks and Jean Butcher are criminals and I am going to go ahead with my complaint, but it won’t be to the Secretary of State they are on the side of the County Clerk and Butcher!”

Here is an excerpt from the original article published 18 November 2010

From what I understand due to some recent incidents that have happened up on the hill at the Gilmer County Courthouse. A recent incident has not only led to the resignation of Norma Hurley, but allegations of voter fraud have also been made.

Natalie had her lawyer write a letter to the author of the article in the Gilmer Free Press to inform him that his source could be arrested for talking to the press any further which was more than a veiled threat and is that not typical Crooked County tactics?

“Voter Fraud?” Now how does this relate to the Butcher and Beverly Marks chatter and a lien not being recorded and a possible civil suit? I am glad you asked!  Norma Hurly ran for the office of County Clerk as a democrat, but was defeated in the primary election.

Then, later, around election time just a short time ago, Beverly Marks requested the help of a County office worker by the name of Debbie Allen to change her political party affiliation from democrat to independent so that she could legally help with the election. (or the rigging of the election)

By her own account as it was related to this reporter, Hurley witnessed some wrongdoing in regard to illegal procedure in the area secured for voting. Norma saw with her own eyes actions that could possibly be deemed unlawful and certainly in need of further investigation.

A very serious allegation has been made in regard to voting procedure and policy.

amber kroening wv threatened Norma with arrest if she were to speak with the press about what she knows!

Hurley, a bookkeeper, noticed that Beverly Marks ordered extra recording modules for the IVO machines, two of them, and further, that they were declared missing for awhile, but then mysteriously showed up later on election night.  Imagine that that is so, “Gilmer County!”

An eyewitness account of the matter confirms the fact that Marks refused in this instance to report the outcome of votes precinct by precinct, as had been done in years prior.

This behavior by the County Clerk Beverly Marks is more than suspicious, it could possibly be criminal. The facts revealed that Marks gave some sub totals here and there, but no reports as had been part of normal procedure in prior years were made available to the public or the press.

Many concerned citizens of Gilmer County are now of the belief that the Gilmer County elections were rigged by the IVO-electronic machines and extra readers!

After witnessing all of this wrongdoing Norma Hurley quit that night! Norma tossed in the towel after a long service because she could no longer witness corruption and unlawful actions in the Gilmer County Courthouse.

It is suspected by many that a conspiracy exists between Tim Butcher and Beverly Marks that could include covering for prior wrongdoing. It is said:

Beverly Marks in 2005 ignored a judges order to sell the Woofter property so that AJ Woofters sister could have an operation, Marks notified some of her friends, Ruth Woofter died and the money was split up among relatives R Woofter had not seen in 30 years or even cared about, but they were friends of Beverly Marks!

“That Tim Butcher has a copy of the index of all the Gilmer County titles and deeds in his office!”

If this is true, then certainly that is a highly illegal act since Butcher is not an elected public official or County Clerk!

It has been reported that Gerald Hough met with the County Clerk Beverly Marks just hours ago [on 11.17.10] to inform her that Hurly is filing voter fraud charges against her, and further, that Gerald B Hough was going to ask that the FBI become involved in the investigation!

I find it almost amusing that Hough would bandy the name of the FBI about, since I have confirmation that he is currently under federal investigation himself for wrongdoing involving fraud in regard to value of evidence in a criminal case that was in the court system for five years in West Virginia at a high cost to the state.

Many common folk in Glenville feel that Tim Butcher and Marks went the extra mile to get the republican Jean Butcher elected at all costs to cover for prior misdeeds, and also, to continue with the corruption! Jean Butcher is more than familiar with the procedure and the jobs required in the County Clerk’s office. She has a lot of experience and has been the “Go to” girl for Butcher in the past having been able to navigate all the files easily given her experience and background.


And just this morning about 6am the official letter from the author of the article that broke the voter fraud story was published in the Gilmer Free Press and here it is!

Below is a letter from the author of the original Community Concerns article dated  November 18th 2010  that refers to wrongdoing at the Gilmer County Courthouse and those involved in a federal civil action dealing with public records and possible misconduct by the County Clerk, plus allegations of voter fraud, published a full week before being reported in any other mainstream media outlets.

Dear Natalie,

I understand that you asked the person bringing a complaint of voter fraud in Gilmer

County to not talk to the press. I was able to gather several facts before and after

your contact that indicate a crime was committed.

I assure you any attempt to cover up this voter fraud or any attempt to lose the evidence

or use the local prosecuting attorney as a vehicle to perform further misconduct in the

matter will result in full exposure of that crime.

I am the person that is the author of that article that exposed the possible voter fraud and I

predict that YOUR OFFICE will make an attempt to cover up the matter of voter fraud!

I also predict you will follow the well worn path blazed by Major Ingold and the Police

Standards division, who in turn passes the buck to the attorneys that represent the state

and criminal matters involving State Police or other officials are squashed although

evidence exists that a crime did indeed occur.

The misconduct of public office holders this week includes Justice Davis who feels that

she can make majority decisions based on facts that were never actual facts presented

in a court record, and so it goes. The second article is written and makes accusations of

your personal involvement in a cover up.

Why should YOU be any different than the rest?

For the record what is your official statement on the matter?

(foot notes are also part of the letter to Natalie Tennant Secretary of State)

Foot note**

I just want to make everyone cognizant of the fact that any evidence that proves there was a crime involving voter fraud in GILMER COUNTY will come up missing very quickly if we do not make the public aware of just how the Power Elite dispose of these embarrassing situations.

I doubt very much that ANY evidence involving the complaint of voter fraud will survive the investigation if the situation is anything like what we have experienced in the past.

But, especially, the evidence could be tampered with or come up missing if Gerry Hough Gilmer County Prosecutor has had anything to do with the evidence or custody thereof.  A complaint that proved Hough guilty of wrongdoing in a Gilmer County court case involving evidence and fraud has already been filed with a federal agency. History repeats.

Hough made sure ALL Of the evidence against Chief Deputy Bandy ( indicted in Calhoun County for Seven Felony Charges) disappeared – and Gerry’s self-described “Good friend,” Sgt CJ Ellyson was dismissed from the State Police after wrongdoing was discovered and no excuse was given as to why the evidence locker was missing money, drugs, and guns.

And Now this is the response from the Counsel for the Secretary of State that we feel contains a veiled threat of arrest if any more information is to be reported on the voter fraud. Also bear in mind that if any fault is found by the office of the Secretary of State they have no power to make an arrest and the matter is simply turned over to the prosecutor for that County, which in this instance would not be a decision in favor of the people given the track record of the holder of that office.

Dear Mr. West:

Secretary of State Tennant has asked me to respond to your request for a comment on alleged voter fraud by unnamed person[s] in Gilmer County during the 2010 general election.

We are prohibited by W.Va. law from disclosing anything about any investigation conducted by this office or any complaint filed with this office.  W.Va. Code §3-8-8(i) makes it a misdemeanor for us, or any person interviewed by us, to disclose any fact about an investigation or complaint.  The misdemeanor is punishable by at least six months in jail and at least a $1,000 fine.  Secretary Tennant is committed to upholding our election laws and cannot enforce some laws while, at the same time, deliberately violating other law.  Therefore, we will not be providing you with a comment on any case.

Secretary Tennant has a very strong record of enforcing election laws during her tenure.  Several cases have been investigated and turned over to prosecutors.  The Secretary, very simply, does not tolerate election law violations.  You may wish to remind your source of the Secretary’s stance.

For your information, the text of the Code prohibiting disclosure of any information is:

“(i) Any person who discloses the fact of any complaint, investigation or report or any part thereof, or any proceedings thereon, is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be fined not less than $1,000, nor more than $5,000, and shall be imprisoned in jail not less than six months nor more than one year.”

If you have any facts or information you wish to report to us so that we can investigate the allegations as required by law, you may submit that information to me.  However, by law you could not then report what you had submitted to us.

If I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.


Timothy G. Leach

Assistant General Counsel

Clearly the focus of this letter above is to bring forth charges for revealing facts of voter fraud. Luckily for all of us, all of the facts actually reported on in the November 18th GFP article were obtained before any of the matter was officially reported to the Secretary of State.

The official investigator for the office of the Secretary of State did interview the person making the complaint, and then claimed that she was lost and promptly headed to a more familiar place and that was the home of a very well known member of the local power elite.

So, will the matter be resolved by the Secretary of State? It is highly unlikely that there is any clear intention to get to the bottom of any actual facts since the current County Clerk was not even interviewed during this last official visit by the Office of the Secretary of State.

The investigator claimed to be lost and could not find the courthouse. What?

We need to try to ask for federal assistance on the matter as soon as possible, and to protect the evidence at all costs. I predict the evidence will come up missing very soon if we do not pay attention. I could give you example after example of evidence that has come up missing that was directly related to the current prosecuting attorney for Gilmer County.

I ask that we all demand that we have another election just for the County Clerk since those are the only votes in dispute.  Tennant should agree to hold another election for County Clerk if she is truly hard on election fraud. If she stands by her no tolerance to election fraud then she will agree to another election. Otherwise a cover up of the facts and a black out on reporting on the matter is sure to result.

    The Central West Virginia Secret Seven is convinced that a serious crime took place and the bad deed involves people with familiar names from Crooked County and they are all Crooks that live down by the Crooked River!!

    Hough is sure to destroy the evidence before they can be found out.

  2. HOUGH lets RAPIST get off on the GSC co-eds

    Prosecutor: No evidence in rape case

    GLENVILLE – A Glenville State College student charged with sexual assault, stemming from a September 2009 incident will not be prosecuted.

    Gilmer County Prosecutor Gerald Hough said there was “no sustainable evidence” in a case of alleged sexual assault against Edwin D. Kinnison.

    “I passed on indicting,” Hough said. “It is the discretion of the prosecutor to decide if there is substantial evidence to decide if a crime has been committed. We looked very hard at this case and decided the evidence was not substantial, not sufficient to go forward.”

    Kinnison was charged with second-degree sexual assault in October 2009, stemming from an alleged incident that occurred at Pickens Hall dormitory at Glenville State College Sept. 29.

    The alleged victim claimed she was assaulted after falling asleep on a couch. According to the criminal complaint, when the alleged assault was over, the victim left the lounge, went to her room and took a shower.

    The girl, accompanied by her father, went to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital for an examination. She also was accompanied by a Gilmer County deputy sheriff and a Glenville State College public safety officer. After the examination authorities returned to the dormitory to retrieve evidence, which was sent to the state police lab.

    Three days later an arrest warrant was issued.

    “She claimed she was violated,” Hough said. “There was no medical evidence to substantiate it. It was a he said, she said.”

    Hough also said there was no video or security footage to corroborate the allegation and the alleged victim had “extensive prior intimacy” with Kinnison.

    Hough said if new evidence were to surface, the possibility of an indictment remains.

    “I won’t hesitate,” he said.

    Hough said he has never lost a sexual assault case he has taken to trial.

    “If it is solid and there is a credible witness, it is worth taking,” he said.

    A message left with Kinnson’s attorney, Kevin Hughhart, seeking comment was not returned.

  3. Peter Bar President of GSC the guy that is drunk all the time fired his head football coach head football coach Alan Fiddler (see I am talking like Peter Barr at the bar) and that the defensive coordinator, who was arrested once recently for some alcohol related charge could be gone too, but that was not confirmed.

    Also Rumor has it that the Bitcher of the Butchers Brother R Terry and the mother to the Butcher Bitches Nauseating Nasia went to Atlanta to hire a hit man to take out all the people giving them bad press and telling the truth about their real estate swindles and stealing money from estates!!

  4. The GILMER FREE PRESS sets the record straight on CROOKED COUNTY CROOK GERRY HOUGH!

    Comments for December on the GFP about the Crooked County Crook Gerald B Hough

    The State of WV spent over 3/4 of a million dollars fighting the famous “Junk Farm Equipment” case in which Hough brought in a special witness from Lemon Equipment to LIE and give a brand new retail price for old used rusted farm equipment with a rusted drive to reflect a felony level crime, when,now, years later the truth is revealed that if he did not lie, then the case was already protected by the statute of limitations and their would have been no case at all. Now the defendant claims that Michelle Dawn Rose stole the tax money for the farm and received no jail time or punishment for it for being friends with Hough!
    Hough is truly a Criminal!

    A prosecutor who cannot even conclude a simple case is incompetent.
    An incompetent prosecutor makes for an ineffective court.
    And an ineffective court is of no benefit to victims of injustice.

    The collected evidence from the dorm led to an arrest after 3 days and it took Hough this long to decide? Come on… Really what does this man do? What happened to his call for Fred Hill’s special investigation? We still need to know who killed Fred Hill.

    This is called double dipping. Few claim our prosecutor is a smart man! The only thing he is smart about is being a smart crook. He fills one pocket with the taxpayer’s money and the hefty raise our commissioners Chapman and Kennedy gave him, and the other pocket with the deals he makes to let the criminals go.
    Just take a look at the pattern, there are always charges brought about and over time they are dropped either because he is too lazy and incompetent to work on them or his other pocket is filled.

    The outcome of this case was predicted very accurately right down to the last detail in the CalPatty Press 14 months ago. The matter was discussed from top to bottom and contained photo’s of Kinnison and a full report with a conclusion that exactly matched the outcome.
    This case is just another fine case for us all to realize that the person that serves as prosecutor is a serious problem for the community.
    In this case the police did their job, and so did security and all procedure was followed.
    When a REAL crime occurs Hough has no idea what to do, just as in the case of Basil Fred Hill.
    We all suffer daily because of the actions of Gerald B Hough. He needs to replaced at all costs and as quick as possible.
    This outcome predicted one year in advance in the same way the outcome of the missing Fred Hill was predicted well in advance is a message to us all.

    Very interesting results that proves a point like a scientist in a laboratory!

    483 people in the poll voted for the fact that they are already convinced that the election for County Clerk was rigged, but the most vocal comments were coming from the extreme minority that represent the power elite REPEATING their brain washing slogans of:

    “This whole speculation is fueled by only a few very vocal people”


    Very very WRONG!

    The MAJORITY Has spoken and the entire speculation in actuality was proven by 483 votes out of a total of 565 total. The Power ELITE are WRONG! The speculation is by the many not the few!!

  6. Team Rangers- Ranger Company A of Mocassin Rangers from Calhoun County founded by the Lone Meth Ranger John Richard call to action

    Team Rangers- Ranger Company A of Mocassin Rangers from Calhoun County founded by the Lone Meth Ranger John Richard call to action just as they did in the day of the summer of 2006 with the first discouraging words of rape by the Chief of Police of Grantsville, West Virginia in Calhoun County when the origins of the Secret Seven brought on the bad little sister to the CCC the CalPatty Press!

    This comment below summons up enough of a reason for the rest of us, how about you?

    Hough, Bell,and local law enforcement are corrupt.
    My stepdaughter was drugged and WHO knows what else. Hough sent my wife a letter stating that evidence has been lost.
    Bell is an A**.
    He is not a law enforcement officer.
    He has been bought by the college.
    Maybe he needs a taste of what he is putting our kids through.

  7. Answer to some Gilmer Free Press questions PLUS KENNEDY IS SERVING ON COUNTY COMMISSION ILLEGALLY

    After asking several questions during interviews and conversations with folks in the know I have an answer to your question of….

    “So, if the local lawyers have information from the Court House that is illegal to have, who was the individual(s) that helped them to obtain said documents?”

    Reta Kight, Gilmer County Commissioner

    In fact I was educated for three hours yesterday about all the destructive things done while she held office.

    Reta Kight, is going to be right back in there soon, a situation that will be manipulated or we expect more voter fraud from the usual suspects.

    Dirty deeds done dirt cheap!


    Brian Kennedy Gilmer County Commissioner that is married to Crooked County Crook Tara Kennedy was elected to the city district to serve on the commission, but lives in Normantown, West Virginia!

    Policy, laws and guidelines indicate that a commissioner must live within the district he is elected to, but since Kennedy is the nephew to Diana L Butcher that is married to Timothy B Butcher of the law firm of Butcher and Bitcher, (since Timothy B is the Bitcher of the Butchers)truly laws policy and guidelines do not apply to them because they are CROOKS from CROOKED COUNTY that live down by the Crooked River.

    Well the SS says, “Brian we don’t care who the fuck you are giving Walrus dick to this week, or who you are banging during the tooting and rooting festival held while Tara is home with the kids, getting sloshed since hubby is out on the pork and tork!”

    Yeah, why do you think she screams at you when you first walk in the door whore?

    Stinky Walrus weeny is absolutely no fun! Just ask Tara!

  8. Brilliant article bro. This is very unique and is just a totally nicely structured posting, just the important information I was hunting regarding those Butcher Bitches and I am not talking about the little whores that fucked jsut about everybody in that town every which way, for money and sex, I am talking about the big daddy bitches, and if you think they have only ripped off local people from Gilmer County think again. We went round and round and you are absolutely correct. They don’t answer written notices and you can never get them on the phone. They don’t have the same pull in other clerks offices in other county’s but they have attempted to pull some stunts on us a couple few different times. Keep up the good work!

    Editors notes: Our SS Spy’s on the inside have heard for themselves, that the POWER ELITE are doing everything they can to either murder us like FRED HILL or put us in jail where we can’t expose their crimes and their elite protection by the State Police. The State Police are a highly political organization whose policy and guidelines are dictated by counsel for the governor, and this is very very uncool!

  9. 2009 gradute of gilmer county high

    this is a good thing to hear about after the fact that i moved away from there ik all the people there in those photos and can say that it does not suprise me i got the shaft when i had to go to the court house. i won’t say this tarra and hough are nice people if you get to know them. now i had no idea they were into all this shit but there is were i say it again IT DOES NOT SURPRISE ME ONE BIT.

    Editors note: Tara is a lying little bitch, and for that we have proof and she has still not been held accountable for her actions, and we are growing impatient each day regarding that unresolved issue. Gerry Hough with his threatening letters to the Gilmer Free Press for publishing the TRUTH may be riding head on into a storm of his own making soon. It seems some old business is about to blow up big, and tempers are has hot as this summer day. Explosive is the current situation. There are some extremely pissed off people involved in a long going dispute. It is about as bad as the Hatfields and McCoys.
