BREAKING – Georgia Governor Kemp Parts Ways with Secretary of State on Signature Audit

The Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections adjourned a meeting Friday in which members voted to recertify the results of the 2020 presidential race in favor of President-elect Joe Biden in a 3-2 voice vote. The meeting focused on a video that went viral Thursday, in which appears to show Fulton County election officials illegally counting ballots pulled from boxes hidden under tables after dismissing poll watchers and media.

Fox news reported that a senior source in Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger’s office stated that the video has been investigated and claims that it showed ballot fraud deemed unfounded, adding that Fulton County election officials had a designated observer at the location the entire time.

Appearing to disagree with Raffensperger, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp stated during a Thursday interview on “The Ingraham Angle” that he has called for a signature audit into the video, but only the secretary of state has the power to order one.

Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron told the Board of Registration and Elections during Friday’s hearing that he had not seen the video, but his staff told him the footage showed “normal” activity. Even Democratic board member Aaron Johnson said the board needs to “sit down, look at what actually happened” and do what they can to “find out what happened.”

President Trump has criticized Raffensperger’s oversight of the election, and Georgia Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, both up for reelection in the January runoffs, have called for his resignation. Now that Governor Kemp has publicly disagreed with Raffensperger’s handling of the election we may see further action by the Georgia legislature.
