Democrat Robb Pitts, who is also the Fulton County Commission Chairman, is none-too thrilled with Judge Brian Amero of the 6th Superior Court District of Georgia (Flint Circuit).
As it turns out, the good judge has ruled that upwards of 145,000 of Fulton County’s absentee ballots from the 2020 presidential election be audited “to protect the integrity of the ballots and the anonymity of the voters who cast them” as reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (ACJ).
But before supporters of President Trump who believed the election was stolen… don’t get too excited.
The ACJ is also reporting that unlike in Maricopa County, Arizona, the Georgia ballots in question will not be inspected by an independent third party, but instead will remain in the custody of the Democrat-dominated Fulton County Commission.
Predictably, the Georgia Democrats are screaming foul.
Also cited by the ACJ, Chairman Pitts stated;
“It is outrageous that Fulton County continues to be a target of those who cannot accept the results from last year’s election,” Pitts said. “The votes have been counted multiple times, including a hand recount, and no evidence of fraud has been found.
Despite Pitts’ objections, Trumpsters can take heart in the knowledge that according to Breitbart.com, there is a legitimate reason for Judge Amero ordering the audit;
Files provided by county officials show there are no chain of custody documents — absentee ballot transfer forms — for 385 out of the 1,591 dropbox collections that took place in Fulton County between September 24, 2020, and November 3, 2020…
Breitbart also made known a few tid-bits of info that could further ensure if a fair and honest audit is conducted (emphasis mine);
Amero made it clear the ballots must remain in the possession of county officials, citing federal and state law. But he left the details of the review to be sorted out in a future order. He said he wants to protect the integrity of the ballots and the anonymity of the voters who cast them.
Amero said he intends to order the absentee ballots to be scanned by county officials to produce high-resolution images. The plaintiffs want to examine those images to determine whether they are fraudulent. For example, the high-resolution images could be used to determine whether ballots were filled out by hand or mass produced by a copy machine, they say.
As of yet, the judge hasn’t ruled if he will allow any of the following observation status to ensure fairness and integrity;
- The plaintiffs
- An independent third party
- Officers of the court
