Georgia’s House Speaker, David Ralston is calling for an independent investigation into the 2020 election in Fulton County. Speaker Ralston wrote a letter to Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron in which he demanded the Georgia Bureau of Investigation take a closer look to determine if any fraud occurred.
According to The Washington Examiner:
“Recently, media reports have surfaced which call into question the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election,” Ralston wrote. “Given the seriousness of this situation and the possible repercussions for our state and nation, it is time we have an independent investigation – once and for all – of the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election.”
Speaker Ralston’s demands coincided with state Sen. Burt Jones, letter to committee Chairman Sen. Marty Harbin demanding Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger testify about the election results.
Trump shared Jones’s letter and attached message via his Save America PAC.
“The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, together with Brad Raffensperger, allowed this Election in Georgia to be Rigged and Stolen,’ Trump wrote. “Why they ever agreed to Stacey Abram’s Consent Decree nobody will ever know. Thank you to Senator Burt Jones and all of the other Patriots for continuing the fight. Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger have done an absolutely terrible job of watching over Voter Integrity in Georgia. They must be held accountable!”
Separately, Raffensperger urged local officials last week to terminate both Barron and Ralph Jones, the registration chief, for their “continued failures.”
“Every time we think we’ve reached the peak of Fulton’s elections mismanagement issues, more comes to light,” the secretary of state told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I’ve been calling for change in Fulton since day one. Maintaining public confidence in our elections begins in Fulton County.”
A report written by an independent election observer monitoring the November election in Fulton, which includes much of Atlanta, found that the county’s election was sloppily handled but did not uncover any fraud. Raffensperger opened an investigation last month into the handling of paperwork in Fulton County related to the use of drop boxes for the 2020 election.
