The state of Georgia has election integrity on its mind as multiple parties push for hearings and investigations of alleged fraud in the 2020 General Election. Several of the cases involve Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero. On Monday, Mike Daugherty’s lawsuit on the January Senate run-off election will be heard by Judge Amero.
As reported by UncoverDC, Mike Daugherty filed the lawsuit in January asking for the run-off to be nullified because of the alleged election fraud in Georgia. Judge Amero granted a motion to unseal and inspect Fulton County Absentee Ballots from the 2020 election.

The complaint that sought to examine 147,000 absentee ballots was filed by nine Georgia voters who alleged that “counterfeit ballots were counted and some ballots were counted multiple times in Fulton County.” The effort was led by attorneys Bob Cheeley and Todd Harding who argued, “that their client’s rights were violated because fraud led to a dilution of their votes and that similar violations will likely happen in future elections.”
On June 24, Judge Amero “left in place a previous order requiring the county to produce digital images of absentee ballots and other election records that are public documents under the Georgia Open Records Act.” Amero dismissed some parts of the case.
