What is your best guess for the never-ending train of weak excuses from the elected Republicans in the State of Georgia when it comes to 2020? Are they just really, really, REALLY super-bad at math? Are they the most incompetent group of bureaucrats on the planet? Or are they truly evil and they’re just rubbing the fraud in our noses at this point because they believe they’ve gotten away with the crime of the century?
I’m not sure which of those is the real answer, or if it is a combination of the three. But what I do know is that when a state discovers a mathematical ballot discrepancy that is 64X greater than Joe Biden’s alleged margin of victory, every Republican in the State of Georgia should be clamoring for an audit and decertification of their results.
This story involves a ballot printing company in Arizona called Runbeck Election Services. Just a few days before the November 2020 election, Fulton County Georgia’s Director of Elections suddenly ordered 1 million fresh absentee ballots from Runbeck. (It was 1,058,210 ballots to be exact.)
The key word in that previous sentence is that these were “absentee” ballots. By the time those ballots were printed and shipped in pallets to Fulton County, Georgia, it was only one or two days prior to the election. There was never going to be enough time to sort and mail those absentee ballots out to voters, with only a day or two left before the election.
Why did they order 1,000,000 absentee ballots that were going to arrive too late to be of use? Seems suspicious. One could infer there was something amiss going on even.
There’s another major oddity about those ballots which I’ll get to in a moment.
First, a fellow by the name of Brian Runbeck manages the printing and shipping of all ballots at Runbeck Election Services in Georgia. He’s listed as the Project Manager and Production Coordinator at the company. When Jovan Pulitzer did an analysis of the ballots in Georgia, which Republicans in that state ignored for some reason, Pulitzer discovered that ballots sent to “red” counties in the state had major differences from ballots sent to “blue” counties. Republican ballots had mysterious bar codes on them that were absent from Democrat ballots, and so on. All of these ballots were printed by Runbeck Election Services. Why were the ballots not uniform? We’ve never had an answer to that question.
Moreover, it doesn’t appear to bother Republicans in either Georgia or Arizona that Mr. Brian Runbeck of Runbeck Election Services is an extremely partisan and frequent donor to the Democrats. Between mid-August of 2020 and October 30, 2020, Brian Runbeck made 63 separate donations to Joe Biden for President, Barack Obama’s ActBlue, the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, and other leftwing causes. 63 times!
This is beyond dispute. Here is the Federal Election Commission’s record of Mr. Runbeck’s busy donation schedule last year, even as he was printing ballots for Georgia and Arizona.
There’s nothing sinister about the fact that Brian Runbeck is a partisan donor to the Democrats. But in two states – Arizona and Georgia – which had massive problems with their ballots in 2020, they should strongly consider the fact that many of those embarrassing anomalies were caused by a company with a history of partisanship in favor of the Democrats. We’ll see if Arizona and Georgia take any action on this when it comes time to renew their ballot-printing contracts.
Here’s the real rub: Where are those 1 million absentee ballots that were ordered just moments before the 2020 election in Fulton County, Georgia?
And now that Uncover DC has obtained a copy of the invoice for those ballots, why were the absentee ballots ordered with “no stubs” attached to them? Uh oh.
A “stub” on an absentee ballot is the little piece at the top of the page that the ballot is attached to. The stub has a number on it that matches a number on the absentee ballot. When that ballot is mailed to a voter, it is then anonymized so that no one will know who the voter cast their ballot for – but the stub is the proof that it was a valid ballot. These ballots were ordered by Fulton County with “no stubs,” i.e., no way to account for them.
Not to worry, though! Georgia election officials say they have accounted for 284,901 of those ballots which were unused, and they are now going to destroy them. Great. Where are the other 773,309 ballots that cannot be accounted for because they were ordered with “no stubs?”
If Joe Biden “won” by 12,049 votes, those 773,309 missing Fulton County ballots – which no one has any way to track because of the missing stubs – represent a 64X margin of error. How much longer are Republicans in Georgia going to put up with this?
