Breaking: Key County in Georgia Announces Signature Audit, May Expand to Rest of the State

On Monday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ordered a county wide signature audit in Cobb county Georgia over election fraud concerns.

Raffensperger explained that the audit may go statewide but is prioritizing Cobb county for the time being.

“I feel we need to take steps to restore confidence in our elections,” Raffensperger said during a press conference. “Starting immediately, we are pulling all of our resources together with GBI to conduct a signature match audit in Cobb County.”

The audit is focusing on a significant amount of ballots from the primary election as well as the general election.

“The unprecedented signature audit could show whether signatures on absentee ballot envelopes really did match the voter signatures kept on file. But there’s no way to match voter signatures to ballots after envelopes were opened,” the Journal-Constitution reported. “The right to cast a secret ballot is guaranteed by the state Constitution.”

Back on Dec. 3, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp called for a signature audit.

“You know, I’ve called early on for a signature audit, obviously the secretary of state, per the laws and the Constitution would have to order that; he has not done that,” Kemp said during an interview with Fox News. “I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we’ll see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we’ll be able to look and see what the next steps are.”

Shortly before Kemp gave the interview on Fox News, the Trump campaign called for another recount in Georgia but demanded that signature matching take place.

“President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards. Without signature matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted,” the campaign said. “If there is no signature matching, this would be as phony as the initial vote count and recount. Let’s stop giving the People false results. There must be a time when we stop counting illegal ballots. Hopefully it is coming soon.”

President Donald Trump is making it increasingly clear that he will continue to fight the 2020 election results. On Sunday evening, the president unleashed in a series of tweets.

“Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime,” President Trump said.

“Everybody knows that dead people, below age people, illegal immigrants, fake signatures, prisoners, and many others voted illegally,” he continued. “Also, machine “glitches” (another word for FRAUD), ballot harvesting, non-resident voters, fake ballots, “stuffing the ballot box”, votes for pay, roughed up Republican Poll Watchers, and sometimes even more votes than people voting, took place in Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and elsewhere.”

“In all Swing State cases, there are far more votes than are necessary to win the State, and the Election itself,” President Trump concluded. “Therefore, VOTES CANNOT BE CERTIFIED. THIS ELECTION IS UNDER PROTEST!”
