Multiple states are sending entourages to Maricopa County, Arizona this week to observe the historic first-of-its-kind forensic audit of a presidential election. A group from the Georgia legislature is on the ground in Arizona as I’m typing this. OAN News reports that a “handful” of additional states will do the same very soon. When we find out which ones, we’ll let you know.
In the meantime, a hearing for a flurry of lawsuits to stop a potential audit in Georgia has been set for later this month. And we have a lot to share with you about what’s happening there.
Georgia was one of the states where Joe Biden managed to pull out a razor-thin, just-barely-enough-votes “victory” under extremely suspicious circumstances. You no doubt remember the magic suitcase ballots that were pulled out from under those tables at State Farm Arena in Fulton County after all the observers were sent home on election night. We now know what’s in the incredible testimonies of the brave whistleblowers who are at the center of the Georgia suit seeking a forensic audit.
There was so much public uproar over the magic suitcase ballots back in November, when the video footage emerged, that the state actually did conduct a hand recount. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger quickly declared his election as clean as a whistle. But it wasn’t clean. Multiple long-time election staffers who participated in that hand recount have now given sworn affidavits that are the subject of this new suit calling for an audit in Georgia.
One of those election workers, a woman named Suzi Voyles, was fired from her job for raising a stink about what she saw in that recount. She’d been a loyal poll manager for more than 20 years. Here’s what she saw when participating in the recount:
Ms. Voyles has sworn under oath that there were batches of ballots in Fulton County that were pristine and identical. They were mail-in ballots that had never been folded, stuffed in envelopes and mailed. There were no creases in the ballots.
I used to live in a mail-in only state years ago, so I remember how it always went with my mail-in ballots. I’d take the ballot out of the envelope, unfold it, notice that there are a bunch of local initiatives and races that I knew nothing about and needed to research some more – and then place the ballot on my desk for several weeks. After that, the ballot would be shuffled around and handled approximately 400 times, I’d spill coffee on it at least once and generally mistreat it as the deadline for mailing it would approach.
I’d finally scramble and mail it at the last minute. Long story short, my mail-in ballot always looked beaten up by the time I’d send it back in. That’s how most mail-in ballots look, according to Ms. Voyles in Georgia. They’ve been handled by human hands. They get coffee or chocolate stains on them and get shuffled around a lot before we mail them back in.
But not those mystery ballots in Georgia. They had no creases, no folds, no chocolatey fingerprints – nothing.
And here’s another similarity that these strange ballots had: The oval for Joe Biden was filled in on every single one of them – but with a missing “white eclipse” in the center of each oval. On every single one of these Biden ballots.
The only conclusion that Suzi Voyles and the other election workers could come to was that these identical, pristine Biden ballots had come off a Xerox machine. That’s what the Georgia lawsuit alleges as well, based on those affidavits. Someone filled out a single ballot and then ran between 10,000 and 20,000 copies of it through a Xerox machine in Fulton County.
Their testimony has convinced the judge in the case to unseal the ballots and examine them. But that was stopped more than a week ago when multiple Fulton County election officials filed simultaneous lawsuits to stop anyone from looking at the ballots. The hearing for those cases has been set for June 21st.
Back in Arizona, the hand recount portion of the audit will be completed this week. That’s only the second stage of the four-stage forensic audit in Maricopa County. Next up will be a technical examination of the voting machines. We’ve got a ways to go before we have “official” answers, but we already know the outcome. So do the Democrats. They don’t seem to be sleeping very well these days, do they?
