While President Donald Trump and his legal warriors continue to fight in several courts of law across the country to prove that voter and ballot fraud took place in the 2020 election, a small county in Georgia just jumped into the fight with a controversial decision this week.
According to Newsmax, Coffee County Board of Elections officials stated in a recent letter that they are refusing to certify the recount efforts from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, citing an “inability to repeatably duplicate creditable election results.”
The officials argued that if the results aren’t repeatable, then they shouldn’t be certified or recognized in the state’s election outcome.
“Any system, financial, voting, or otherwise, that is not repeatable nor dependable should not be used,” the election officials wrote. “To demand certification of patently inaccurate results neither serves the objective of the electoral system nor satisfies the legal obligation to certify the electronic recount.”
The same Coffee County officials sent a document to Raffensperger’s office, which they claim “illuminates that the electronic recount lacks credibility.”
Interestingly, the only numbers that the Coffee County election officials would agree to certify were the results from the night of the election, which was November 3.
“Accordingly, the Coffee County Board of Elections and Registration have voted to certify the votes cast in the Election Night report,” the letter states. “The Election Night numbers are reflected in the official certification of results submitted by our office.”
The move presumably came as a surprise to Raffensperger, who moved quickly to finish the final recount of the Georgia vote totals in order to certify the vote as soon as possible.
While it’s unclear at this point what exactly Coffee County’s refusal to certify the votes will mean in the big picture, what is clear is that President Trump and his legal surrogates are still fighting a number of legal battles across the country to prove that Biden didn’t win the 2020 election — at least not in a fair or legal manner.
An encouraging new — and possibly final — battle to have the Supreme Court hear at least one of the election-related cases was announced this week as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that the state of Texas is filing suit against several key swing states that Trump lost.
Thanks to the U.S. Constitution, filing such a lawsuit on behalf of a state grants the immediate ability to get on a Supreme Court docket — something that Trump’s lawyers or any of the legal surrogates have been unable to do so far.
Several other states joined Texas in what could be an epic legal battle, all agreeing that something fishy and potentially corrupt happened in several states that many believed would be easy wins for Trump, only to see the results skew in favor of Biden, which gave him the electoral votes needed to become president-elect.
There’s still much that’s unclear at this point in time, but one thing we know for sure is that this party ain’t over yet.
