Former Senator Perdue is suing Fulton County over the crooked way they handled the 2020 election. Much has been said about the way the treachery affected the election of President Trump, but it also affected Perdue. Perdue needed to garner 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff with Ossoff, but he finished with 49.7%. He missed his target by only , votes. That number could easily be reached in Fulton County.
it is hard to say what would happen in that race should Perdue be proven to be the winner in 2020. I would think that at a minimum they would hold a new vote, but they could award him the seat because Ossoff won in the runoff that would not have existed had the votes been counted properly. The lawsuit lays out all of the possible fraud that occurred there, including running votes through the machines multiple times and 16,000 votes that were never counted.
The case filed on Thursday in Georgia begins as follows:
Fulton County Board of Registration, Elections Director Richard Barron and his agents, including the other Respondents negligently, grossly negligently or intentionally engaged in and/or permitted multiple unlawful election acts and omissions by their failure, inter alia, to competently oversee the actions of the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections employees, staff, agents, and/or contractors in the acceptance and tabulation and counting of absentee ballots, thousands of which were unlawfully marked by machines rather than legally registered Georgia voters. These acts and omissions, inter alia, circumvented the majority vote of the people of the State of Georgia and thereby affected the outcome of the statewide General Election on November 3, 2020 in several races including the United States Senate race of Petitioner Perdue
Fulton County Elections Board Members and Fulton County Board of Commissioners and their agents failed in their duty of oversight of the Elections Director, who was appointed to his position by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections. Together, the Respondents’ actions and inactions violated, and will continue to violate, the constitutional rights of one citizen, one vote, just as they violated the equal protection and due process rights of Senator David A. Perdue, an election candidate, and Elizabeth Grace Lennon, a voter, on November 3, 2020.
Under Section 12 of the filing it reads:
The unlawful, erroneous, negligent, grossly negligent, willful, malicious, corrupt, deceitful, and intentional manipulation of votes by Respondents violates the principles of democracy and the foundation of the Georgia Republic and is what Georgia’s founding fathers sought to prohibit when they thoughtfully crafted the Georgia Constitution to guarantee all citizens the right to one vote and the right to seek relief from the judiciary to protect their one vote from dilution, discrimination, and debasement.
Georgia law requires “[s]uperintendents, poll officers, and other officials engaged in the conducting of primaries and elections . . . [to] perform their duties in public.” O.C.G.A. § 21-2- 406. Respondents violated this provision of Georgia law as it relates to observers during the scanning of absentee ballots for Fulton County at State Farm Arena during the General Election.
Look at Sections 43 and 44:
From November 3, 2020 to November 4, 2020, several batches of absentee ballots were scanned multiple times, and those votes corrupt and erroneous totals were unlawfully included in the certified number of votes submitted by Fulton County to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
Additionally, about 161 batches of ballots representing approximately 16,000 ballots cast were withheld by Respondents from the certified results that were submitted to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
