Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is front and center as many are calling for election audits in the Peach State.
During an interview with Just The News, Raffensperger was asked about how he plans to solve election irregularities in Fulton County, which is the largest county in Georgia and happens to be very liberal.
Raffensperger said investigations are ongoing and that if the state election board needs to replace the county election director and take over operations, “then that’s what we need to do.”
Georgia could be the next state to launch an election audit like the one taking place in Arizona.
During a rally on Monday in Georgia hosted by Women for America First, conservatives came out in support of an audit in the battleground state.
One of the most notable aspects came during an interview between radio host John Fredericks and Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach.
Beach discussed how the Georgia audit process will go in Georgia and what will happen if they do indeed find significant fraud.
Senator Beach: “I think it’s going to be so overwhelming in Fulton, I think it’s going to be anywhere from 17 to 34 thousand ballots it’s going to tell the story… Then I think we can ask for our 16 electoral college votes back and park em here…”
Fredericks: “So you have the authority to just basically decertify your 16 electoral votes? Don’t give them to Trump, just park them here?”
Senator Beach: “Bring em back and park em in Georgia, and then if Arizona would do that, and if a couple of other states did that and it got below 270, then the 12th Amendment would kick in and Congress would have to act.”
The problems in Georgia have been mounting.
Last week, Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero allowed the lawsuit to proceed regarding an audit of the ballots in Fulton County, Georgia.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger also announced that the battleground state would be purging around 100,000 names from voter rolls if the individuals do not take a few moments to update their information.
It’s a legal procedure that happens all the time in every state.
A chunk of voters being purged from the registration rolls simply because they are missing updated addresses is not a major issue
Last week, it was reported that in Fulton County, Georgia, the chain of custody documents for absentee ballots cannot be found.
A Fulton County election official informed them that “a few forms are missing” and that “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced” for the November 3, 2020 election.
And seven months after the Open Records Request, 28 counties have failed to respond at all.
That means no chain of custody documentation has been provided for around 333,000 absentee ballots.
State audit sheets also suggested that many of Fulton’s absentee ballot batches, when delivered to state auditors, were not sealed per security protocol prior to delivery.
