Georgia Review Of Voter Signatures Finds No Fraud In Presidential Election

President Trump ranted over the audit results and accused Georgia's secretary of state of rigging the election for his non-existent brother.

The Georgia Secretary of State's Office announced Tuesday that it completed its audit of ballot signatures and found no fraud in the presidential election, dealing yet another blow to President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the results.

The secretary of state's office, in partnership with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, performed a signature match audit in Cobb County after credible allegations that the process was not followed during the June primaries.

The review found "no fraudulent ballots" and that the county had a "99.99%" accuracy rate in performing correct signature verification procedures during the presidential election, the secretary of state's office said in a press release.

Georgia has already conducted a hand recount and a subsequent machine recount at the request of the Trump campaign; both reviews affirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state.

"The Secretary of State's office has always been focused on calling balls and strikes in elections and, in this case, three strikes against the voter fraud claims and they're out," Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) said in a statement.

Trump on Tuesday tore into Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican who was an outspoken supporter of the president leading up to the election, over the audit results.

"I love the Great State of Georgia, but the people who run it, from the Governor ... to the Secretary of State, are a complete disaster and don't have a clue, or worse," Trump tweeted. "Nobody can be this stupid. Just allow us to find the crime, and turn the state Republican...."

Trump then appeared to suggest Raffensperger rigged the election against Trump to help his brother, whom the president said "works for China." Raffensperger does not have a brother.

It's possible Trump was referring to Ron Raffensperger, an executive of the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei. But Georgia's secretary of state is not related to him.

Trump continued to attack Kemp on Wednesday, calling the governor an "obstructionist" and urging him to resign. Georgia election officials, as well as election officials nationwide and the Justice Department, have found no evidence of widespread voter fraud or irregularities.

Biden was the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Georgia in 28 years, narrowly beating Trump, who won the state in 2016. All eyes remain on Georgia as the state's two runoff Senate races, scheduled for Jan. 5, inch closer. The elections will determine which party controls the upper chamber.

The truth and Donald Trump have never met for more than a few seconds at a time.

...The consent decree signed by the “Secretary”, with the consent of Kemp, is perhaps even more poorly negotiated than the deal that John Kerry made with Iran. Now it turns out that Brad R’s brother works for China, and they definitely don’t want “Trump”. So disgusting! #MAGA
Brad R. doesnt have a brother.  
Trumpsters, he's a liar.

Just allow us to find the crime...

That's not how law and democracy work. You find credible evidence of wrong doing first and then investigate it (as happened in this article's signature check investigation). Making something up in your imagination obviously hasn't worked out so well for Trumpers. "I heard" or "There must be" isn't credible evidence in a court of law.

The truth of the matter is that there is only 1 person in this country that is claiming election fraud, and that 1 and only person is the loser.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has now found no vote fraud in Georgia.

In Trumpland, they are probably seen as commies too.
