Observers in the ongoing vote recount in Georgia found a major mistake in the ballot-counting process. On Wednesday, Georgia GOP said 9,256 votes in Dekalb County were erroneously given to Joe Biden.
The eyes of the nation are on Georgia…
Will Georgia have a rigorous investigation of all fraud/irregularities and an honest count of legal ballots?

Officials said the initial count labeled 10,700 ballots for Biden and gave only 13 ballots to President Trump, a margin similar to those in Cuban and North Korean elections. In reality, Biden got less than 1100 of those ballots.
The Georgia GOP has submitted an affidavit of that violation to election officials and is demanding an investigation.
