The State of Georgia was an electoral battleground in 2020, turning Democrat in the presidential race for the first time since the 1990’s – and that fact has pushed many within the nation to cast doubts on the results.
Of course, the President’s insistence that something had gone awry in the Peach State certainly fanned the flames of this idea, and pushed a number of armchair sleuths to examine every shred of information they could get their hands on.
Still, the Republican leadership in the state is sure that their actions and answers were correct.
One Georgia county recertified its election results on Friday as Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office debunked a recently surfaced video that appeared to show illegal ballot-counting without supervisors.
The Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections adjourned a meeting Friday in which members voted to recertify the results of the 2020 presidential race in favor of President-elect Joe Biden in a 3-2 voice vote.
Much of the meeting focused on a video that went viral Thursday, which political commentators claimed showed Fulton County election officials illegally stuffing ballots — a form of election fraud in which more ballots are counted than were cast by eligible voters in a specific location.
As for that video…
A senior source in Raffensperger’s office told Fox News that the video has been investigated and claims that it showed ballot fraud deemed unfounded, adding that Fulton County election officials had a designated observer at the location the entire time — a practice that has been in place since June.
Raffensperger’s office also debunked allegations that the ballots were stuffed in a pair of “suitcases” that one election official pulled out from beneath a table in the video, saying footage shows the ballots in the cases that they were supposed to be kept in.
President Trump’s path to remaining in the White House is narrowing, and the mood has turned frantic among his legal surrogates.
