This morning, during the GA Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Elections hearing, Coffee County GOP Chair Cathy Latham dropped one bombshell after another. Latham began her testimony by explaining multiple issues they allegedly had with their Dominion ballot scanners in the June primary, saying, “From the get-go, we had nothing but problems.” She explained, “The scanners were messed up completely, as we were scanning—constantly having to be cleaned—they wouldn’t scan—finally, halfway through—even just trying to scan one at a time, we had all kinds of problems. We sent a city cop to a county a couple of hours away to go get an emergency scanner in the middle of the night—lights blaring—brought it back and finished the next day with a borrowed scanner.” Latham explained that she was involved with a couple of Zoom calls with Georgia’s Secretary of State, where they discussed the upcoming November 2020 election; she expressed her concern over the faulty scanners. She was told that she would get a new scanner for DeKalb County and that Georgia’s Voting Systems Manager Gabriel Sterling would ensure that her issues were addressed. DeKalb County was never given a new scanner, as promised by Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
“In the meantime, in between the June and the November election, it was discovered that we could manipulate the ballot. Our supervisor of elections realized that accidentally she could click and change a ballot.” Latham told the Senate Committee, explaining that her explanation of how the votes could be manipulated was captured on video.
The video that went viral after it was released was played for members of the committee.
