Lawyer Lin Wood Files to Block Ga. Election Certification; ‘These People are Corrupt’

'As a result of the defendants' violations of the United States Constitution and other election laws, Georgia's election tallies are suspect and tainted with impropriety...'

The automatic hand recount of the Nov. 3 presidential election in Georgia was supposed to raise public confidence in the process by assuring that precision and accuracy were top priorities.

Instead, the discovery of new uncounted votes and other alleged recount irregularities may yield an even greater loss of trust in the results.

Lin Wood, whose work defending teenage Trump supporters Nicholas Sandmannn and Kyle Rittenhouse has turned him into something of a conservative celebrity, sued Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday in a bid to block the state’s post-recount certification of the results, still appearing to favor Democrat Joe Biden.

“As a result of the defendants’ violations of the United States Constitution and other election laws, Georgia’s election tallies are suspect and tainted with impropriety,” said the lawsuit.

“Thus, this Court should issue an injunction to bar the certification of those results until Plaintiff’s substantive claims can be heard to ensure that Georgia’s electoral process is restored to a system of fairness,” it said.

The case mirrored strategies in other tossup states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania and Nevada, where Trump’s legal team has pursued an array of challenges over the administration of the election and the integrity of the vote.

A loss in Georgia would be a major setback to President Donald Trump’s re-election effort, where he currently trails Biden in projected electoral votes 290-232, according to Fox News.

In addition to holding the traditionally red, Southern state, Trump must successfully challenge the projected outcomes in at least two other states where Democrat officials are likely to put up unyielding resistance, making inevitable a trip to the US Supreme Court.

Nonetheless, Republicans have focused much of their recent ire on Raffensperger, who allegedly mismanaged the vote count after striking a deal with left-wing activist Stacey Abrams, the failed Democrat candidate in Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial race.

As Trump’s attorneys have said in Pennsylvania, however, the Georgia lawsuit says Raffensperger lacked the authority to approve a deal that would change election laws.

Among the concerns Wood raised was a claim that county-level election officials had been instructed to use the original ballot count instead of the recount totals, the NOQ Report said.

At least 5,000 uncounted votes in two counties that favored Trump were discovered during the recount, with suggestions that a third county may also have misplaced some of its results.

Meanwhile, Georgia was also under scrutiny for its use of Dominion Voting Systems, which some expert data scientists believe may have toggled a race-weighting algorithm to delete Trump votes or transfer them to Biden in GOP-heavy counties.

Despite the many suspicions raised, Georgia was due to complete the recount on Wednesday, with Raffensperger continuing to insist that Trump was to blame for the loss.

He claimed that by discouraging constituents from using the absentee vote process, Trump had “depressed” the votes of 24,000 Republicans who had voted in the state’s primary elections but never turned out for the general election.

“Those 24,000 people did not vote in the fall,” Raffensperger said, according to the Huffington Post.

“They did not vote absentee because they were told by the president, ‘Don’t vote absentee. It’s not secure.’ But then they did not come out and vote in person,” he continued, adding that Trump “actually depressed, suppressed his own voting base.”

Biden had an edge of just under 14,000 votes in the unofficial tallies as of Wednesday afternoon.
