Melissa Carone, the ‘star witness’ who sat beside Rudy Giuliani and testified that she had witnessed election fraud, has now been outed by Dominion Voting Systems for misrepresenting herself. While she claimed to have insider information as a Dominion employee, the company says she was actually hired through a staffing agency for cleaning “and other menial services.”
Janitorial work is an honest living and those who do it are worthy of a salute. However, pretending to have the company secrets isn’t quite so honorable, and Dominion is warning that public release of false ‘secrets’ that hurt the company’s public image could be actionable.
According to Law & Crime, the company served Carone with a cease and desist letter, calling her out for seeking “international infamy” by claiming that the company “somehow rigged or otherwise improperly influenced the outcome of the Nov. 2020 U.S. presidential election.”
“Without a shred of corroborating evidence, you have claimed that you witnessed several different versions of voter fraud—ranging from one story involving a van, to other accusations that votes were counted multiple times. You published these statements even though you knew all along that your attacks on Dominion have no basis in reality.”
The letter goes on to scold Carone for “pretending to have some sort of ‘insider’s knowledge’ regarding Dominion’s business activities” — she claimed to have provided IT support on election day — “when in reality you were hired through a staffing agency for one day to clean glass on machines and complete other menial tasks.”
Carone did, after her appearance in court with Giuliani, go on to speak at a Trump-supporting event — a Women for America First rally, on December 14th, where she declared that she would not stop sharing her story.

Since the cease and desist letter, Carone has made no public statement about whether she still intends to keep sharing her claims.
