FAYETTE COUNTY, GA – A second county has now found hundreds, possibly thousands of more votes for incumbent President Donald Trump through the manual recount currently happening in Georgia.
These votes were found on a memory card that wasn’t previously loaded into the vote tally.
Just now: GA elections spox @GabrielSterling says the ongoing election audit confirmed 2,755 previously uncounted votes in Fayette County
1,577 for Trump
1,128 for Biden
Biden’s statewide advantage in GA now down to 12,929

Just a few days ago, we were told about approximately 2,600 ballots being discovered in Floyd County, an area northwest of Atlanta, and home to the cities of Rome and Lindale. That county’s redefined vote count netted 778 votes for President Trump.
Gabriel Sterling, voting-system implementation manager at the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, said during a video news conference that most of the “lost” ballots weren’t counted due to human error, which of course, is suspicious in and of itself. Trump is leading in GOP-strong Floyd County by more than 40 percentage points.
Just like in Floyd County, though, many votes weren’t tabulated properly, and this time, Sterling relates that the votes weren’t downloaded from a thumb drive used to retain information in the voting machines.
The Trump campaign released a statement on the Floyd County situation:
“Recent revelations from Georgia’s ongoing statewide recount have shown that President Trump was absolutely correct to raise concerns about widespread voting irregularities that have favored the Biden-Harris ticket.”
Gabriel Sterling, in his official capacity with the Georgia Secretary of State Office, asked for a change:
“There’s problems within that office, which is why the secretary was asking for the director of that elections division to step down.”
Fayette County sits in a predominantly rural area due south of Atlanta, and has been a Republican stronghold for many years. President Trump won Fayette County by 16 points in 2016, and unofficially leads by 6 points now. The ongoing election audit (read: hand recount) has “found” another 1,577 votes for the president.
The report from the Dailywire gives more details:
“Gabriel Sterling in the Secretary of State’s Office describes what happened in Fayette County: There were votes that had been scanned and were on a memory card, but the issue was that they hadn’t been uploaded. He said it was more easily discoverable than the issue in Floyd County, because they were able to see that the number of people who were checked in on the early voting file in Fayette was higher than the number of people there was in the county’s reported vote total.”
More from a separate Dailywire report:
“The recovered votes may also help out GOP Sen. David Perdue, who is roughly 14,000 votes away from securing 50% of the vote in his bid for reelection and avoiding a runoff against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office said the votes were missed because election workers failed to upload a memory card containing the votes into a ballot counting machine. The Floyd County discrepancy does not appear to be a widespread issue, the office of the secretary of state said.”
Sterling, who oversaw the implementation of the new statewide election system for the state, said that the unofficial breakdown of ballots was 1,643 for Trump, 865 for Biden and 16 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen.
The mistake happened because election officials reportedly missed uploading a memory card containing the votes to a ballot counting machine.”
Jamie Dupree, a local reporter, brought up an interesting thought. What if the uncounted votes were found in deep blue Fulton County (Atlanta)?
“And we have a second county in Georgia where all the votes were not counted. Fayette County voted 53-46 for Trump.
Just a thought again today….that if this was Fulton County finding uncounted votes, my Twitter mentions would be melting down. But when it’s two GOP counties (Floyd & Fayette), well it’s just a shrug of the shoulders.”

Project Veritas sent several people undercover into some Georgia recount locations. What they found may not surprise you, but it just might make you mad.
An RNC monitor who was observing the ballot recount in Georgia said an auditor was caught changing votes from Trump to Biden three times in three minutes.
“Now, that’s just while I’m standing there. So does the second checker catch it every time?” Hale Soucie, the monitor asked a Project Veritas undercover reporter.
“This lady, three times in three minutes—from 2:09 to 2:12—she got three wrong. Does it get corrected the next time?”
Soucie said he had to leave that table to observe election workers at the next who were also behaving suspiciously. He said a counter was handing an auditor a ballot, and then the auditor accepted the vote for Biden without even bothering to check it.

Soucie explained to the Project Veritas reporter:
“She’s not even looking at it, she’s putting it in. That person is supposed to be auditing it.”
Soucie said he reported the problem to the Cobb County election officials who told him they’d talk to the auditors.
After that, the auditor “got all cutesy,” Soucie noted, sarcastically putting the ballot up close to her face to examine the ballots when she knew he was watching.
He said when he started walking away, he saw her glaring at him.
“That’s when things started getting real shady—like really tense and crap. No matter where he was standing in the room, she and a couple of others would call their bosses and point at him.
I haven’t touched anybody, haven’t talked to anybody. All I’m doing is writing down and observing and telling what happened.”
Soucie walked around the room and heard a hostile auditor talking about him.
“I’m paid by the taxpayer and this f—king —hole is coming out and watching me,” she allegedly complained.

ATLANTA, GA – Former presidential candidate, Andrew Yang, is leading the change for liberals to inundate Georgia in order to “help” with the senatorial runoff race to be held there on January 5th. U.S. Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) says those people may be committing a felony, according to Georgia law.
Great news #yanggang – Evelyn and I are moving to Georgia to help @ossoff and @ReverendWarnock win! This is our only chance to clear Mitch out of the way and help Joe and Kamala get things done in the next 4 years. More details to come but let’s go!!! 😀🇺🇸🚀 https://t.co/egcdwqC1qZ

The runoff race is necessary because according to Georgia law, a candidate must have 50.1% of the vote to continue uncontested.
As states continue to certify the Presidential Election, the next battle is in Georgia where two runoff elections will determine who maintains control in the U.S. Senate for the next two years.
Should Republicans lose and Biden is elected, his party would control all three branches of government. Should President Trump win re-election and Republicans lose in Georgia, a Democrat-run House and Senate would most certainly impeach him immediately.
The best thing we could do for Joe is to get him a Democratic Senate. There should be coordination of resources. Everyone who campaigned for Joe should get ready to head to Georgia. I’ll go. It’s the only way to sideline Mitch and give Joe a unified government.

Senator David Purdue (R-GA) is leading his Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff, by more than 90,000 votes, but neither candidate eclipsed the 50.1% requirement.
Likewise, Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) is leading her Democrat challenger, Reverend Raphael Warnock. Loeffler was appointed in January by Governor Brian Kemp to hold the seat vacated by retired Senator Johnny Isakson, who stepped down due to health concerns with three years remaining in his term.
Doug Collins, currently serving as U.S. Representative, has challenged Kelly Loeffler for her senate seat, but conceded to her last week. This now four-way race heads towards a final election in January, and the balance of power in the U.S. Senate is caught in the middle of the race.
In reference to people jamming themselves into the state prior to the election, the State of Georgia’s election laws do not have a minimum residency requirement for voting, meaning that you could live in the state for a week and still vote in the election as a Georgia resident.
University of North Florida professor Enreijeta Shino warned activists planning on moving into the state:
“People should be very careful about doing that. These are sensitive issues, and election officials are going to pay attention to what is happening.”
As eluded to previously, and stated in several interviews with Representative Doug Collins, it is a felony to move to the state just to participate in the election. Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Office released a statement indicating people doing so would be prosecuted.
Georgia Representative Jody Hice supported Collins’ statement about the voting laws.
“Representative Hice had a warning for Andrew Yang and other Democrats seeking to move to the Peach State just to vote in the Senate run-off elections: ‘What you’re planning is illegal’…”
“Liberals are urging people to move to Georgia just to vote for Democrats in the Senate runoffs. Here’s a friendly tip: It is a FELONY to vote in GA if you’re not a legal resident or if you’re in the state briefly with the intention to vote and then move away.”

It isn’t clear whether people are serious about the vote and run scheme, or how serious Georgia lawmakers are about enforcing the issue – or how they’d enforce it.
Liberals outside the state are certainly encouraging the notion, though. New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman told CNN on Monday night, November 9th:
“I hope everybody moves to Georgia, you know, in the next month or two, registers to vote and votes for these two Democratic senators.”
Eric Levitz of the Intelligencer wrote in a now-deleted Tweet:
“These run-offs will decide which party controls the Senate, and thus, whether we’ll have any hope of a large stimulus/climate bill. If you have the means and fervor to make a temporary move to GA, believe anyone who registers by Dec 7 can vote in these elections.”

Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner captured the message before it was deleted. Levitz explained that the Tweet was sent out “mostly in jest.” Mostly surely being the key word there.
