A group of House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Friday demanding the AG investigate alleged fraud in Georgia and work to ensure fair runoff elections slated for January in the Peach State.
As Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger revealed Monday, his office is investigating multiple organizations attempting to register illegal and invalid voters in Georgia,” says the letter, signed by 21 current members and four members-elect. “As the Georgia Secretary of State’s office lacks prosecutorial power, we ask that the Department of Justice simultaneously investigate and prosecute this illegal behavior under federal law.”
“Additionally, we ask that you use your authority as Attorney General to issue a preliminary order preventing any organization from registering illegal and invalid voters in the upcoming January 5th Georgia U.S. Senate Runoff Elections,” they continue.
“We strongly urge you to use your authority as Attorney General to issue a restraining order or temporary injunction preventing organizations from registering illegal and invalid voters in the upcoming election,” the letter reads. “Swift action is needed to ensure that illegal votes do not dilute the rights of legal voters.”
Earlier in the week, Barr told the media that “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
The effort, headed by Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks (R), comes on the heels of troubling video presented during the Georgia Senate’s Government Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday that promoted Republican Governor Brian Kemp to call for a signature audit of Georgia’s election results.
In a statement obtained by The Washington Examiner, Brooks said, “No one should ever be allowed to bring an estimated 15,000 to 18,000 ballots to a vote-counting facility in suitcases; hide those suitcases under a table before the vote-counting facility opens; at roughly 10:30 PM at night, declare that vote tabulation is finished for the night and will resume at 8:30 AM the next day; order all poll watchers and media to leave the facility; and then, once the facility is reduced to a bare minimum of five co-workers (and possibly criminal co-conspirators), with no poll watchers present; roll out the suitcases from their hiding place, withdraw thousands of ballots, and stuff the vote-counting machines with what appears to be, by the conduct observed, illegal and fraudulent ballots. Yet that is exactly what a newly released video of a polling location reveals.”
Georgia’s voting system implementation manager Gabriel Sterling and chief investigator for the Georgia secretary of state Frances Watson both claim the video shows nothing suspicious, but “normal procedure,” according to left-wing fact-checking site Lead Stories.Full Article | dailywire.com
