Former Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., sued several Fulton County, Georgia officals on Thursday, alleging that they “negligently, grossly negligently or intentionally engaged in and/or permitted multiple unlawful election acts,” The Gateway Pundit reported.
The lawsuit petitions for a forensic audit of the county’s 2020 election results and a requirement that election officials “certify the correct vote total to the Secretary of State.”
Perdue claimed in the lawsuit that Fulton County’s election officials scanned “several batches” of absentee ballots “multiple times,” and that the “corrupt and erroneous totals were unlawfully included in the certified number of votes.”
The 78-page lawsuit stated that Fulton County excluded “161 batches, or “approximately 16,000 ballots,” from the “certified results that were submitted to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.”
The Fulton Elections Division also “printed some 20,000 additional absentee ballots in late October 2020, and cannot establish the chain of custody of those absentee ballots and whether some or all were mailed out to voter.”
Perdue asked the court to force Fulton County to retain the extra absentee ballots, many of which he believes were “unlawfully marked by machines rather than legally registered Georgia voters.”
He called for the court’s permission to “unseal absentee ballots” and to “review, examine, inspect, and duplicate such materials including electronic images of electronic drives.”
He also asked for “this case to remain active through the 2022 statewide elections in order for the Court to supervise the 2022 elections in Fulton County.”
The lawsuit requests that the court force Fulton County to “terminate all employees, agents, and contractors” who participated in or had knowledge of these illegal activities.
Perdue lost Georgia’s 2020 Senate race to now-Sen. Jos Ossoff, a Democrat.
In Georgia’s runoff voting system, Perdue won the first-round by almost 2 percent or nearly 100,000 votes, but he lost to Ossoff in the runoff by about 1 percent or 50,000 votes.
Perdue is now running for governor against incumbent Brian Kemp in the Republican primary.
