Editor’s Note: The original version of this story claimed that the group, Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results, found that a hand count of ballots in Fulton County, Ga., “shows that the hand-count audit last year ‘was riddled with massive errors and provable fraud.'” Also, the report noted that “The Epoch Times reported Wednesday that the analysis indicates at least three dozen batches of mail-in ballots that contained 4,255 votes that were redundantly added to the final audit results…Almost 3,400 of those ballots that were doubled counted were for President Joe Biden.” Shortly before this article was published, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that only about 200 ballots were found to have been double-counted by elections officials, but the mistake was caught. The report also added that there was no indication either Trump or Biden were given improper votes, which was also reaffirmed by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger after three audits. We regret the error.
(USA Features) An election integrity organization operating off a court order says an analysis of mail-in ballot images in Fulton County, Georgia, which includes Atlanta, shows that the hand-count audit last year “was riddled with massive errors and provable fraud.”
The Epoch Times reported Wednesday that the analysis indicates at least three dozen batches of mail-in ballots that contained 4,255 votes that were redundantly added to the final audit results, according to Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia, also known as VoterGA.
Almost 3,400 of those ballots that were doubled counted were for President Joe Biden.
In addition, the audit team found seven audit tally sheets they say “were falsified to contain fabricated vote totals,” The Epoch Times reported.
One example the group highlighted was a batch that contained 59 ballot images for Biden and 42 for former President Donald Trump, but it was reported as 100 votes for Biden and no votes for Trump, the outlet noted.
Analysts found that 923 — 60% — of the 1,539 mail-in ballot batch files showed votes that were not correctly reported to the county’s official 2020 election outcome total compared to the audit totals, The Epoch Times noted, citing VoterGA officials.
“We believe that there is massive audit errors,” Garland Favorito, founder of the group, told a press conference in Georgia on Tuesday.
Henry County Judge Brian Amero, who is overseeing the case, in March ordered that scanned ballot images in Fulton County be handed over to VoterGA. Late last month, he let part of an election lawsuit proceed.
Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., who is challenging Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in the GOP secretary of state primary, called on him to resign.
“In Fulton County, there is now undeniable proof of voter irregularity if not outright voter fraud,” he said.
Biden defeated Trump in Georgia by about 12,500 votes.
Following the news out of Fulton County, the former president issued a statement.
“The news coming out of Georgia is beyond incredible,” Trump said.
“The hand recount in Fulton County was a total fraud! They stuffed the ballot box—and got caught. We will lose our Country if this is allowed to stand,” he added.
