ATLANTA, Georgia (PNN) - December 4, 2020 - After Thursday’s bombshell security footage that showed vote counting observers being sent home, only for vote counters to pull black suitcases full of votes from underneath a table and begin processing them in the early hours in the morning, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office conceded that “ballots were counted unlawfully and in secret”.
David Shafer, Chair of the Georgia Republican Party, posted the security camera video from Thursday’s hearing on his Twitter account and wrote, “Not sure why Twitter has labeled this ‘disputed’. It is video from the surveillance camera at State Farm Arena where Fulton County election workers scanned ballots late into the night after falsely announcing they were shutting down.”
“Our position is unchanged,” he said of the Georgia Republican Party. “Ballots were counted unlawfully and in secret.”
Schafer added, “Even had state monitors been present, the law still requires that ballot counting be open to partisan monitors and the public. But state monitors were not present,” which the Georgia Secretary of State “now acknowledges and the video shows.”
Thus far, both Republican Fascist Police States of Amerika senate candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue have called for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign from his position immediately. However, Loeffler and Purdue have stopped short of calling for Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to call a special session of the legislature so state legislators can address issues of election irregularity and determine whether the state’s 13 Electoral College votes should be assigned to President Donald Trump or to Joe Biden.
Raffensperger has also failed to call for signature verification of mail-in ballots during Georgia’s second recount, in a move many Republicans, including President Trump, say has so far made the recount a meaningless exercise.
While Shafer says the secretary of state’s office is now in agreement on the issue of votes being counted illegally, we have been unable to locate a public comment made by Raffensperger to this effect.
