Last November’s election in Georgia was plagued with numerous concerns over election integrity, many of which are still being examined. With Gov. Kemp’s recent signing of the ‘Election Integrity Act of 2021,’ it seems logical to assume the state is implementing procedures to address and correct election fraud when and where it occurred. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case in Fulton County, GA, where, on Apr. 2, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger sent a request to the courts in an ongoing civil action, petitioning that ballot images taken from the voting machines be the only source of evidence used in an upcoming audit in the county.
Raffensperger’s amicus brief is tied to a petition filed on Dec. 20, 2020, in the Superior Court of Fulton County, GA. Petitioner Garland Favorito (a spokesperson for VOTER GA), who served as a Fulton County tabulation observer in the Nov. 3 election, asked for relief after being ignored by Georgia Election Officials regarding his reports of election fraud.
