Georgia Election Officials Working Against Transparency to Protect Dominion in the Face of Suspicions, According to Reports
Because Georgia has a special election in January for two Senate seats, the state has become a focal point for the country, as the majority of the US Senate hangs in the balance of their statewide election. Reports are coming out of the area that the 2020 Presidential election in the state is suspicious and not being addressed seriously by GA state election officials.
Friday both Georgia Secretary of State (SOS) Brad Raffensperger and GA Speaker David Ralston were called out by name by two different news sources.
The Epoch Times reported on Friday:
Georgia’s elections director in November sent a memo warning counties that voting machine software was not subject to open record requests as public demand was growing for transparency over Dominion Voting Systems software and other electronic poll book data.
“Multiple counties have reported receiving Open Records Requests asking for data information such as, copies of original software for the voting equipment, copies of any software patches performed on Dominion voting machines in the State of Georgia prior to the November 3, 2020 General Election, as well as copies of any thumb drives provided to you containing software or software updates,” states the memo from Chris Harvey, Georgia Elections Division Director.
“Under the Open Records Act, providing copies of software, software updates, or thumb drives containing software or software updates is not subject to open records requests,” the memo says. “In addition, information that could harm the security of election equipment cannot be provided.”
The memo was made public on Dec. 17 by a local voter integrity campaigner.
The secretary of state’s office declined to comment on the matter, but did not deny the authenticity of the letter when contacted by The Epoch Times.
It was sent to county election officials and county registrars. (Please visit Epoch Times for their full article)
This memo is from Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA)
VoterGA provided evidence today that the office of Secretary of State (SOS) Brad Raffensperger is blocking its calls for forensic reports of
faulty Dominion voting systems in Coffee and Ware counties. VoterGA obtained a copy of a November 17th letter written by Elections Director
Chris Harvey to County Election Directors telling them they would violate Georgia law if they allowed forensic experts to take an image copy of their election management system so they could produce a report to help ensure the system is secure and malware-free.
Harvey claimed in his letter that such a protective measure “could harm election security.” Raffensperger continues to protect the Dominion systems he purchased last year from scrutiny despite forensic reports being ordered in Michigan and Arizona, both of which run the same Democracy Suite 5.5 software versions used in Georgia.
The recently published forensics report for Antrim County, Michigan, provided a disturbing account of security flaws in the Dominion system. It also outlined a subsequent cover-up by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, who claimed in her written report a 6,000 vote flip from Trump to Biden was an “isolated user error.”
The report stated:
“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with
inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.“
“The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is
of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%). We observed an error rate of 68.05%. This demonstrated “significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.”
“Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s statement on November 6, 2020 that “[t]the correct results always were and continue to be reflected on the tabulator totals tape . . . .” was false.”
VoterGA called for a forensic report of election management systems in Coffee and Ware counties. The Coffee County Election Board refused to certify recounts and provided detailed evidence to the House Government Affairs Committee that Dominion produced obviously erroneous results three times in a row. The Ware County certified results, hand count audit totals, written confirmation from the Elections Director, and an unrebutted VoterGA affidavit showed Dominion flipped 37 votes from President Trump to former Vice President Biden. The SOS office denies that either of the Dominion voting system malfunctions occurred.
Compounded by that fitness report is a report by John Fredericks who reported Friday that he had evidence of the Speaker of the GA House obstructing State Legislators from any investigation into voter fraud.
Fredericks has been in Georgia reporting on election issues since November and started a new site for news, called The Georgia Star.
