President Trump and his legal team have long insisted that the 2020 election was “rigged”, and his supporters have been compiling evidence of strange goings-on from coast to coast in recent days.
At this stage in the game, Trump’s lawyers are challenging the election results in a number of states, hoping to find improperly cast ballots, electoral malfeasance, or even outright voter fraud. So far, there hasn’t been enough to overturn the results of the election, but one swing state just found literally thousands of uncounted ballots during an audit and recount.
Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.
The revelation was rather large.
The 2,600 previously uncounted ballots in the county marked the most significant issue so far uncovered in the recount process. Floyd County Republican Party chair Luke Martin called the mishap “concerning” but insisted that it “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.”
“I’m glad the audit revealed it, and it’s important that all votes are counted,” Martin told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
The news is sure to reinvigorate the MAGA movement, who’ve been fed little good news over the last few days of Trump’s reelection effort.
