President Donald Trump has turned a bit desperate this week, as he attempts to hold on to the White House in the face of some serious adversity.
The Associated Press and other reputable sources have already called the election for Joe Biden, declaring that the former Vice President’s win in Pennsylvania puts him at at least the 270 electoral college votes needed to secure the election. The President is looking to fight this result in court, believing that Biden could only have won via some large scale fraud or corruption.
In Atlanta, a significant voting irregularity has the Trump legal team on the move.
Georgia’s top election official is dispatching a team of investigators after a ballot “issue” was discovered in one of the counties most responsible for giving former Vice President Joe Biden the lead over President Trump.
While Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) did not reveal the nature of the issue with the ballots, he did announce late Saturday that investigators were headed to State Farm Arena in Fulton County to “secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
“Fulton County has discovered an issue involving reporting from their work on Friday. Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan their work from Friday,” Raffensperger said. “The Secretary of State has a monitor onsite, has sent additional investigators, and dispatched the Deputy Secretary of State as well to oversee the process to make sure to thoroughly secure the vote and protect all legal votes. Observers from both political parties are there as well.”
Some believe that the error could impact the status of Georgia’s electoral votes, after the state went blue for the first time since the 1990’s.
