Georgia governor calls for audit after state certifies election results

Source: CBS News

Georgia's Republican Governor Brian Kemp certified the state's election results Friday, saying that now that the results are certified, the Trump campaign can pursue other legal options to call for a recount. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, also a Republican, told reporters Friday morning that President-elect Biden had definitively won the state, after the state's hand recount was completed Thursday.

But Kemp didn't endorse the results, instead calling for another full hand recount. Kemp, who served as Georgia secretary of state before Raffensperger, has not publicly defended the state's election process from accusations from the president and his campaign. He alleged Friday that the audit revealed significant errors made in several counties, including Floyd, Douglas and Walton.

Kemp said the audit only looked at ballots, not the signatures on the absentee applications or the signatures on the ballot envelopes. He called for Raffensperger to "consider addressing these concerns" and conduct a "sample of audit of signatures on absentee ballot envelopes and compare those to the signatures on applications and on file that the secretary of state's office."

The Georgia Secretary of State's office has said repeatedly that at this point in the process it is not possible to match signatures which already took place as a part of a two-step signature verification process because ballots are separated from envelopes to ensure the secrecy of voters' selections.

Krooked Kemp is at it again. He suppressed voters to keep Stacy Abrams out of the Governor's Mansion, now he's trying to keep shit stirred up to ensure GOPer wins in the Senate runoff.

4. Signature match occurred at initial ballot count and overseen by a

democratric and republican election judge. Can't go back to ask for another IF the standard practice was to toss the envelope that contained the signature.

5. Terrible headline. CBS blew it with that one.


The SoS completed an audit. The results have now been certified by both the SoS and the Governor. Biden won.

What the Governor said is this: since the results have now been certified, Trump has the right to call for a RECOUNT (not another audit).

8. He said that there should be a "sample audit" of the signatures.

around the 1:40 mark: https://www.c-span.org/video/?478321-1/georgia-governor-kemp-statement-election-results-certification

So the headline wasn't completely wrong. However, the part of the story that suggests he called for another full hand recount is in inaccurate.

6. If Kemp was SOS, doesn't he understand the process?

Deliberate obtuseness with intent to obstruct. Asshole.

13. Trump thinks all votes not for him should be thrown out.

Meanwhile, the security of the United States becomes more and more endangered. And Trump continues on his lame-duck destruction spree, creating a mess it will take years -- if not decades -- to clean up.

All because of Fat Donnie's fragile ego. The only results he'll accept is a coup.

Impeach his fucking ass.

14. I don't trust these repeated calls for recounts, are they polluting the ballot pools?

Recall how the Trump campaign emailed a county in PA asking about where the ballots would be stored. This was the week before election day.

It's done. Certified. Over.

16. GA just had an audit.

The whole presidential race was recounted by hand. How many audits does he think GA needs?
