Fulton County’s audit case was just dismissed. Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero reasoned that the case had a lack of standing.
“A judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit that alleged fraud in Georgia’s most populous county during the 2020 election,” the Independent reported. “The suit sought a review of some 147,000 absentee ballots in search of illegitimate votes, but no evidence emerged to justify such a broad search, the judge said.”
“Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero’s order dismissing the case says the Georgia voters who brought the lawsuit ‘failed to allege a particularized injury, and therefore lacked the standing to claim that their state constitutional rights to equal protection and due process had been violated,” the report added.
The court’s order to dismiss the case can be read here:
“All citizens of Georgia have a right to know whether or not counterfeit ballots were injected into the Fulton Co. election results, how many were injected, where they came from and how we can prevent it from happening again in future elections,” Favorito wrote about the ruling in an email. “It is not adequate for any organizations to secretly tell us there are no counterfeit ballots and refuse to let the public inspect them.”
However, Georgia investigators on Tuesday argued just that: There were no counterfeit ballots found.
“Georgia election investigators were unable to find any counterfeit ballots among batches identified by Republican vote-counters, according to a court brief Tuesday, dealing a blow to a lawsuit seeking to inspect absentee ballots cast in last year’s presidential election,” the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
“The court document filed on behalf of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said investigators reviewed 1,000 absentee ballots from batches in Fulton County that allegedly contained ‘pristine’” ballots with perfectly filled-in ovals and no fold lines,” the report continued. “All ballots in those batches appeared to be legitimate.”
“The secretary’s investigators have not uncovered any absentee ballots that match the descriptions given by affiants or otherwise appear to be fraudulent or counterfeit,” stated the 89-page response to the court by Georgia Assistant Attorney General Charlene McGowan.
Garland Favorito argued that a full inspection of Fulton County’s 147,000 absentee ballots will be needed to find any counterfeits.
“Sworn affidavits say there were counterfeit ballots, and we need to know where they are and how they got there so we can fix this for future elections,” Favorito said.
Fulton County Board of Commissioners Chairman Robb Pitts celebrated the dismissal of the lawsuit.
“Today was a win for democracy,” he claimed. “This lawsuit was the result of the Big Lie, which is nothing more than a meritless conspiracy theory being spread by people who simply cannot accept that their side lost. Its defeat here today should echo throughout the nation.”
However there are still major unresolved questions about how Fulton County handled the 2020 election. It appears that there will be no remedy for its apparent corrupt practices.
Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea Shaye Moss were central to the after-hours ballot-counting operation at State Farm Arena during the 2020 election. Among their activites were dragging out boxes of ballots from under a table after election observers were wrongfully sent home early at State Farm Arena. CCTV shows that the election workers ran stacks of ballots through tabulators on video, some of them multiple times.
Judge Amero in May ruled to allow the inspection of physical ballots to resolve what litigants describe as “large discrepancies” uncovered in ballot images from the 2020 election.
“In the hearing, lawyers for VoterGA.org described large discrepancies (21%) between the number of ballot batches reported by the GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who certified the election, and the number of ballot batches actually provided by court-ordered access in the previous April hearing in the case,” CDM reported.
In July, Tucker Carlson reported on the finding that numerous ballots in Fulton County were double-counted, which would appear to match what was seen on the State Farm Arena video.
“At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double-counted in Fulton County, that is a total of at least 4,000 votes,” he said.
“How’s that possible? I don’t know,” he added. “Every American should want to know, because the answer gets to the heart of the integrity of our elections, otherwise known as our democracy. We’re not talking about a couple of ballots here. We are talking about a lot of ballots, at least hundreds of ballots involved. Enough potentially to affect the outcome of the election.”
Tucker Carlson then discusses the “seven falsified” audit tally sheets discovered by VoterGA.
“How is that not flat-out criminal fraud?” Tucker asked. “We’d love to know. Because it certainly sounds like flat-out criminal fraud.”
As reported earlier, an independent election audit team poured through ballot images in Fulton County, Georgia and found numerous examples of fraudulent ballots double-counted in the election.
The forensic auditing team found double-counted ballots from the 2020 election and showed them in a video release.
The ballots scanned were identically marked in their entirety. The issue with double-ballot counting is that it circumstantially corroborates video-recorded evidence that appears to show Fulton County election workers running stacks of ballots through tabulators.
Contrary to widespread media myths, as the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway rightly pointed out, the State Farm vote-counting video has not been “debunked.”
After the release of thousands of ballot images under a Georgia state law that has made them available to the public, the mainstream media has finally conceded that hundreds of double-scanned ballots were cast in Fulton County in the 2020 election.
“Digital ballot images made public under Georgia’s new voting law show nearly 200 ballots — including one for [Kanye] West — that election officials initially scanned two times last fall before a recount,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
“The discovery of identical ballots provides evidence to back up allegations of problems in the presidential election, but on a relatively small scale that had no bearing on the final certified count,” AJC claims. “A group of voters seeking to prove the election was fraudulent say double-counting is just the beginning of what they hope to find.”
VoterGA’s efforts to get transparency and accountability for the 2020 election debacle experienced a serious setback on Wednesday. But election integrity is a standard that concerned American voters must continue to work tirelessly to restore.
