In early December, Melissa Carone became the subject of fascination – and a “Saturday Night Live” skit – after she appeared as a witness for Rudy Giuliani at a Michigan hearing over claims that Dominion Voting Systems’ technology was used to perpetrate election fraud.
Lawyers for Dominion sent Carone a strongly worded letter last week accusing the Grosse Pointe Woods mother of two of spreading lies about the company.
“You gained international infamy earlier this month as Rudy Giuliani’s so-called ‘star witness’ who could supposedly corroborate outlandish accusations that Dominion has somehow rigged or otherwise improperly influenced the outcome of the Nov. 2020 US presidential election,” the letter, which was first published by Law and Crime, said.
Dominion Voting Systems, which designed voting machines used in at least 24 states during this year’s US presidential election, sent out a slew of cease-and-desist letters in recent weeks, threatening legal action against anchors at Fox, OANN, and Newsmax, among others, for making baseless claims about election fraud involving the company. Anchors at Fox and Newsmax walked back some of their networks’ claims on the air after receiving letters from Dominion.
