Is Georgia gearing up to be Florida 2.0 with people ‘finding ballots’ days after the election? Sounds like Democrats there would like to make it so.
The Democratic candidate, Stacey Abrams, who was heavily touted by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, went down in apparent defeat on Tuesday.
But that hasn’t stopped the Democrats. Check this description from the Charlotte Observer:
In a frantic search by phone and on foot, volunteers have been trying to find ballots that could help Democrat Stacey Abrams close the gap against Republican Brian Kemp in Georgia’s unresolved race for governor.
Wait, what? A ‘frantic search’ for ballots? How does this strike anyone as right? Why would you have to “search” for ballots? Where are you going to find them? Under a mattress? Or in a copy machine?
Well, turns out they’re claiming they’ve found some.
From Washington Examiner:
The latest vote tally on the Georgia secretary of state’s website shows Kemp leading by more than a percentage point. Kemp had 1,975,806 votes to Abrams’ 1,916,931 — a margin of 58,875 votes — leading 50.28 percent to Abrams’ 48.78 percent. The Libertarian candidate, Ted Metz, had a mere 37,149 votes and 0.95 percent of the vote.
Earlier in the day, Kemp’s campaign argued that it was “mathematically impossible” for Abrams to pull ahead or get close enough to trigger a recount, even with the remaining uncounted provisional and military ballots.
But Democrats keep pitching:
“New votes?” Where do “new votes” come from?
People are not buying ‘suddenly found ballots.’
