Brian Kemp, a Georgia Republican, was recently “served.”
Kandiss Taylor is a Georgia governor candidate who is a teacher and mother of three children. Taylor is a vocal opponent of Georgia’s rigged 2020 election and is running for governor in 2022.
One of her major campaign promises is a forensic assessment of the 2020 presidential election machinery and ballots.
Taylor “served” Kemp with documents requesting an official forensic audit of the 2020 election ballots during a campaign stump speech.
Before the forensic audit, lawyers for the Fulton County, Georgia Board of Registration and Elections submitted a last-minute move in court to dismiss the election fraud complaint brought by Garland Favorito and others.
The forensic audit was set to start on Friday (5/28) but Chief Judge Brian Amero of Henry County, Georgia allowed a delay to hear arguments filed by Fulton County.
A total of 147,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County will be examined in the future assessment.
The complaint also claims that late on election night in Fulton County, a heavily Democratic county, Biden’s vote increased dramatically.
Only a forensic examination of the ballots, according to Kurt Hilbert, an attorney for the tea party, will tell the truth about the 2020 election.
“There should be nothing to hide,” Hilbert said. “Tea Party Patriots, the citizens of Georgia, and the former president have a right to know exactly what happened and how many ballots were illegally cast and counted.”
Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State, has likewise reversed his position.
Raffensperger has altered his tune after a series of antics, disparaging statements about Donald Trump, and even come out against election audits.
Raffensperger came out in support of the effort when Judge Amero determined that all 147,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County may be reviewed.
In an interview with the New York Times, Raffensperger expressed his support for the forensic audit.
The following is a portion of the interview transcript:
So why support this most recent order to inspect ballots?
So from Day 1, I’ve encouraged Georgians who have concerns about the elections in their counties to pursue those claims through legal avenues. Frankly, Fulton County has a longstanding history of election mismanagement that has weakened voter faith in the system.
And I’m very grateful that S.B. 202 [the state’s new voting law] strengthens the ability of the secretary of state’s office to hold counties accountable. I think that’s a good thing.
The NYT then asked: “But in a letter, you wrote to Congress in January, you refuted the false allegations regarding absentee ballots in Fulton County, nearly the very same claims that are a part of this lawsuit that led to the judge’s order. So what has changed?”
Unfortunately, the No. 1 issue that we’re facing right now in elections nationwide is voter confidence. Now, in Georgia, it goes back to the 2018 governor’s race, when Stacey Abrams did not concede, and then in 2016, days after President Trump won, the other camp talks about Russian collusion. And so we had those aspersions cast on Trump’s victory.
But what happens each time is that voter confidence takes a hit. So whenever we can restore, or have a process that will help restore voter confidence, I think that’s a good thing — if you have an open and transparent process in which everyone can objectively agree that this is due process that they’re doing, that they’re making sure they’re following the law.
At the end of the day, they’re going to get the same results we got after November. And then we can hopefully put this to bed.
After apparent disparities were discovered, Amero filed a move to unseal votes.
During the hearing, lawyers for VoterGA.org “described large discrepancies (21%) between the number of ballot batches reported by GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who certified the election, and the number of ballot batches actually provided by court-ordered access in the previous April hearing in the case.”
