Former President Donald Trump formally called on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to examine 43,000 ballots in DeKalb County that violated the state’s chain of custody rules.
Investigators discovered in August that roughly 72% of the county’s 62,000 absentee ballots that had been placed into remote drop boxes lacked the necessary documentation after getting collected.
“I would respectfully request that your department check this and, if true, along with many other claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities, start the process of decertifying the Election, or whatever the correct legal remedy is, and announce the true winner,” Trump wrote.
Trump’s past relationship with Raffensperger has been contentious. After he sought in January to urge the RINO official to follow up on various avenues of fraud, Raffensperger refused to budge.
A top surrogate of his, Jordan Fuchs, subsequently leaked the conversation to the Washington Post, thereby ginning up a pseudo-scandal that led congressional Democrats and leftist media to buzz, once again, about impeaching Trump.
That quickly dissipated when, days later, Democrats found a better opportunity by accusing Trump of inciting the Jan. 6 uprising at the US Capitol.
Trump referenced the earlier phone call in his letter to Raffensperger.
“As stated to you previously, the number of false and/or irregular votes is far greater than needed to change the Georgia election result,” he wrote.
“People do not understand why you and Governor Brian Kemp adamantly refuse to acknowledge the now proven facts, and fight so hard that the election truth not be told,” Trump continued. “You and Governor Kemp are doing a tremendous disservice to the Great State of Georgia and to our Nation—which is systematically being destroyed by an illegitimate president and his administration.”
Some have reported that evidence suggests Raffensperger may have been a Democratic plant with ties to Chinese nationals who helped fund his political career.
With the results of Arizona‘s audit of Maricopa County set to be unveiled next week, Trump may see an opening for revisiting the case that he should have been the duly elected president if millions of invalid and illegal absentee ballots had not flooded the system as the result of corrupt state and local officials unilaterally changing the voting laws.
Many were supported in their efforts by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, who funneled an estimated $400 million of his personal wealth into get-out-the-vote efforts such as the remote ballot drop-off boxes.
Zuckerberg spent $51 million in Georgia alone, much of that directed toward the deep red state’s urban centers, including DeKalb and other counties surrounding Atlanta.
The certified tally had Biden carrying the Georgia by only 11,779 votes. He similarly secured Arizona with only 10,457 votes.
Biden would still hold an advantage of 20 electoral votes over Trump if those two states were re-certified, meaning a third state would be needed.
In Wisconsin, the state legislature has hinted that it also may undertake an audit—and the momentum from reversals in Arizona and Georgia could potentially spur the GOP-led legislature to do so.
Wisconsin‘s 10 electoral votes going to Trump along with Georgia and Arizona would put the race at an even split, which would hypothetically have left it to the House of Representatives, where, by an unusual rule built into the Constitution, Republicans would have had a slight advantage.
In Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral votes, the GOP legislature has initiated a review process via commission. However, it faces longer odds due to threats by far-left state Attorney General Josh Shapiro to fight the effort in court, where it would be adjudicated by an equally radical leftist state Supreme Court.
Regardless, the US Constitution likely would work to Biden’s advantage given the fact that the Electoral College’s vote already was certified.
However, proof of vote fraud would be a powerful force in holding Democrats’ power-grabbing ambitions in check as they scramble to codify through controversial legislation the very rules that enabled the fraudulent outcome that delivered them both the White House and the Senate majority.
