Judge OKs review of absentee ballots in Georgia’s Fulton County

A judge in Georgia just handed down a ruling that marks a big win for former President Donald Trump and others who have expressed concerns about possible improprieties in the 2020 presidential election.

Superior Court Judge Brian Amero ruled Friday that absentee ballots from the 2020 race in Georgia’s Fulton County can be unsealed and inspected for evidence of fraud, the Washington Examiner reported.

Amero’s decision means that more than 145,000 absentee ballots cast in the 2020 election in Fulton County will be examined up close at the behest of plaintiffs including activist Garland Favorito. But unlike in Arizona, where a controversial audit is ongoing in Maricopa County, the ballots in Georiga “must remain in the custody of Fulton election officials,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, citing the judge’s ruling.

“The bedrock of our republic”

It’s also worth noting that even if fraud is found, it wouldn’t change the result of the 2020 race, which was ultimately certified in favor of Joe Biden.

Still, Republicans including former Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler have heralded the newly approved review as a step in the right direction for voter confidence.

“Voter confidence in our election system is the bedrock of our republic,” Loeffler told the AJC. “Unfortunately, inconsistencies in Fulton County’s November 2020 absentee ballots cast serious doubt on voters’ faith in our elections.”

“Another layer of transparency”

Even Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), a recently christened opponent of former President Trump, has praised the effort.

“From Day One, I have encouraged Georgians with concerns about the election in their counties to pursue those claims through legal avenues,” Raffensperger said, according to the Examiner.

“Fulton County has a long-standing history of election mismanagement that has understandably weakened voters’ faith in its system,” he added. “Allowing this audit provides another layer of transparency and citizen engagement.

Democrats cry foul

Of course, Democrats are far from on board, with Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts (D) telling the AJC that it’s “outrageous” that his county “continues to be a target of those who cannot accept the results from last year’s election.”

“The votes have been counted multiple times, including a hand recount, and no evidence of fraud has been found,” he added. “The fact remains that Fulton County safely and securely carried out an election in the midst of a public health crisis.”

Specifics about the inspection of the Fulton County absentee ballots have yet to be released. One can only hope, however, that the review helps settle any lingering questions of potential election fraud once and for all.
