A recent revelation deleted into the idea that deceased voters cast ballots in the state of Georgia, according to The Washington Examiner.
The publication reported that investigators in Georgia found four ballots cast by the deceased in the 2020 presidential election, contradicting the claim made by former President Donald Trump that there were many more and they might have changed the outcome of the election.
“There has yet to be proof of enough fraud to overturn the 2020 elections,” tweeted Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday. We need to look forward, not waste time SMOKING GUN: Election Fraud STUNNER – Dems HORRIFIED the past.”
In the four cases outlined by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution were incidents that seemed innocuous enough, and in some cases were the fault of the elderly in those areas.
One of the cases was an older woman who cast a vote for her deceased husband who died in September of 2020, and the incident seemed to be intentional.
“He was going to vote Republican, and she said, ‘Well, I’m going to cancel your ballot because I’m voting Democrat.’ It was kind of a joke between them,” Barry Bishop, an attorney representing the widow, told the State Election Board.
“She received the absentee ballot and carried out his wishes … She now realizes that was not the thing to do.”
Evidence was found that Sherry Cook, submitted a ballot for her husband who had died months earlier.
The Trump campaign, who had a deeply vested interest in making sure that no improper ballots were counted, cited the vote of James Blalock in Covington, who died in 2006 and voted in 2020.
It was later confirmed that his widow did indeed vote in his name during the wow presidential election.
The Trump campaign made claims that many more invalid votes were cast in Georgia, and while no more than the four have been reported, conservatives have questioned whether the fox is guarding the hen house, and those who would get in trouble might not want that information to get out.
The Examiner reported that the state attorney general’s office will begin to investigate the accusations and penalize anyone who is found guilty with fines that range from $100 to $5,000 per violation.
