Georgia governor calls for audit after state certifies election results [View all]

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.
