As the mainstream media continues to insist that Americans move forward and acknowledge the preliminary results of the 2020 election, there are a number of reasons — like what’s happened in Georgia this week — why so many are resistant to accepting the election outcome.
According to the Daily Wire, election officials in Georgia are now investigating a third incident in which a memory card loaded with official votes might have been misplaced, as thousands of missing votes are discovered in counties all over the Peach state.
News of the potentially missing votes, in a county President Donald Trump led by nearly 50 points, came from Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling as the state performed an audit of the ballots.
On Monday in Floyd County, during the state recount, officials found 2,600 votes in the heavily Trump-favored county that were not counted as a result of employees not uploading the results from a ballot machine memory card.
Officials insisted at the time that the discovery of the memory car was “concerning,” but that it “doesn’t appear to be a widespread issue.”
According to WSBTV, the issue was apparently so concerning that the Secretary of State’s office called for the resignation of the Floyd County election official in charge.
The issue was apparently more widespread than the state originally believed, as on Tuesday in Fayette County, a similar instance of officially recorded votes not being uploaded was discovered, this time to the tune of 2,755 votes. Of those votes, 1,577 were allocated for Trump.
Adding in the latest Walton County situation, albeit a smaller vote total that was unaccounted for, one has to wonder at what point will state officials consider this issue “widespread,” as the situation has unfolded in three counties in just two days.
It’s true that the previously missing votes won’t amount to enough to overturn the election results, but if it is discovered that similar situations happened in additional counties, Georgia officials might be in for a new round of legal challenges by the president’s legal team.
