In an interview with Just the News on Tuesday, voting integrity activist Garland Favorito accused Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger of attempting to block physical inspection of ballots cast in Fulton County, Ga. in the November presidential election as part of an election fraud “coverup.”
Favorito’s organization Voter GA filed a suit against the then-chairperson of the Fulton County Board of Elections in December 2020, based on a sudden, implausible spike of 20,000 votes in favor of Joe Biden on election night, as well as sworn testimony from hand count auditors who say they saw Uncreased ballots, different paper stock, and ballots marked with toner instead of writing implements are cited by the witnesses as reasons for their suspicions.
The judge in the case found probable cause to conditionally unseal the county’s ballots for a forensic audit based on the affidavits and other evidence. GA was given until March 25 to submit a plan to the judge outlining how the audit would be conducted, including which experts would be used, where the audit would take place, and so on.
Raffensperger, who is not a party to the lawsuit, filed an amicus brief last week in an attempt to stop the attempt to unseal and examine the ballots. a Republican who has refused to investigate claims of vote-counting tampering in the state’s 2020 presidential election, as demanded by former President Donald Trump and others.
