Officials in Fulton County, Georgia will have to wait for depositions in the election audit as plaintiffs agreed to reschedule until a judge can hear a motion about dismissing the case, according to The Washington Examiner.
The suit is being brought against the Fulton County Board of Elections with the assertion that there were thousands of fraudulent ballots cast in the crucial part of the swing state of Georgia.
Testimony, however, was postponed on Thursday after the parties involved came to an agreement to allow the court to hear a motion to dismiss that could render the depositions moot if granted,
Last month Superior Court Judge Brian Amero granted a motion that unsealed images of more than 140,000 ballots from the 2020 presidential election in an effort to ascertain whether the ballots were legitimate.
Ballots in question can be “forensically analyzed,” with better quality images, and according to plaintiff and VoterGA co-founder Garland Favorito, this could be an opportunity to find answers to questions that many have had since the hotly contested presidential election.
According to the Examiner, Among those set to be deposed were election workers Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea Moss who worked counting absentee ballots at the State Farm Arena.
These pair were cited by former President Donald Trump and his campaign officials as having a case that could prove fraud, which would in turn, legitimize at least some of Trump’s claim that the election was rigged.
Suit was brought against the elections board due to Favorito’s conviction that at least 10,000 absentee ballots, if not double that number, were problematic.
If Favorito’s claim is correct, it could be earth-shattering for anyone who believes the possible margin for error was too small to count, considering that Joe Biden won the state of Georgia by around 12,000 votes.
According to a second filing shared on Twitter by GPB News reporter Stephen Fowler, the plaintiffs plan to pull Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts and Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron into their hearing via subpoena.
“In its motion, the county claims that it has ‘NO CONTROL OVER ELECTIONS.’ … These witnesses will prove otherwise,” said the petitioners according to the Examiner, adding that the testimony would “entitle” them to “amend the petition, mooting the County’s motion to dismiss.”
One of the officials was unimpressed saying that, “It is outrageous that Fulton County continues to be a target of those who cannot accept the results from last year’s election,” Pitts said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The votes have been counted multiple times, including a hand recount, and no evidence of fraud has been found.”
