Georgia signature audit finds no fraud in presidential election


A signature audit of the presidential election results in a key #Georgia #County confirmed there was no fraud, the third review to confirm that #President-elect #Joe #Biden#Joe #BidenMichigan mayor draws criticism with #Facebook posts suggesting rebellion: report #Trump names #Roisman acting SEC chairman #Biden #Interior nominee discusses environmental injustice with tribal leaders MORE won the #Peach #State in #November.

#Georgia #Secretary of #State #Brad #Raffensperger (R) said in a press release that the review in #Cobb #County, which #Biden won by over 14 percentage points, found that the election board there “a 99.99% accuracy rate in performing correct signature verification procedures.”

The signature audit of ballot submitted followed a hand recount of statewide votes and a subsequent machine recount that also affirmed #Biden’s victory in the #Peach #State. #President #Trump#Donald #TrumpTrump calls for end to ‘religious persecution worldwide’ on 850th anniversary of #Thomas #Becket’s death #Michael #Cohen interview sparks questions after he mentions prison friends ‘#Tony #Meatballs and #Big #Minty’ #Ocasio-Cortez rails against both #Democrats and #Republicans who opposed ,000 direct payments MORE has made #Georgia a top target of his claims that widespread voter fraud and irregularities cost him a second term, though lawsuits over such claims have been tossed for lack of evidence and standing.

“The #Secretary of #State’s office has always been focused on calling balls and strikes in elections and, in this case, three strikes against the voter fraud claims and they’re out,” said #Raffensperger. “We conducted a statewide hand recount that reaffirmed the initial tally, and a machine recount at the request of the #Trump campaign that also reaffirmed the original tally. #This audit disproves the only credible allegations the #Trump campaign had against the strength of #Georgia’s signature match processes.”

#Raffensperger first announced the signature match audit for #Cobb #County on #Dec. 14 over allegations over process foul ups, but the review found “no fraudulent absentee ballots” with a 99 percent confidence threshold. The audit found that only two ballots should have been flagged, but fraud was not suspected in either instance.

#Raffensperger’s office teamed up with the #Georgia #Bureau of #Investigation (GBI) to conduct the audit.

#Cobb #County is one of a number of suburban #Atlanta areas that #Biden won that helped fuel his statewide victory.

The results of the audit mark the latest defeat for #Trump in his effort to subvert the election results but will likely make #Raffensperger a target once again of the president’s ire.
