Brad Raffensperger, the corrupt RINO secretary of state for Georgia – and thus, the state’s chief elections official – announced on Monday that he is ordering a signature audit for Cobb County, home to Marietta, where severe election irregularities occurred during the general election.
Raffensperger, in his efforts to maintain the illusion of actually doing his job, claims that the audit comes in response to a “specific allegation” that Cobb County officials did not properly follow the signature verification requirements for mail-in ballots on and in the days following Election Day.
From a story at the Augusta Chronicle:
Georgia officials will conduct a signature-match audit of absentee ballot envelopes in Cobb County to promote faith in the election system ahead of next month’s U.S. Senate runoff elections, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Monday.
The audit comes in response to a “specific allegation” the mail-in signature verification process was not followed properly in Cobb for the Nov. 3 general election, Raffensperger said at a news conference. He did not give details on the allegation.
Re-checking the envelope signatures in Cobb also aims to boost confidence in the integrity of the high-stakes Senate runoffs on Jan. 5 amid fraud claims from President Donald Trump and his allies that have injected doubt into Georgia’s election system, Raffensperger said.
“We stand ready to answer each and every question out there,” Raffensperger said. “Every Georgian should have faith in our elections.”
Ok, well, if Raffensperger really wants to answer each and every question out there, why is he just now ordering this audit, and why just for a single county, when Raffensperger’s office has been literally inundated not just with complaints, but lawsuits about similar irregularities taking place across the entire state since Election Day?
Why not do it in Fulton County, home to Atlanta, where we were treated to this scene of election officials staying until the wee hours of the morning and pulling cases filled with thousands of mail-in ballots out from under desks:

Raffensperger apparently expects you all to believe that that’s all just fine, not a problem at all.
Then there’s the issue of what exactly the corrupt Sec. State really means when he claims his team will conduct a “signature audit.” After all, he initially claimed that the sham recount he ordered right after Election Day would include both a recanvassing and a signature audit when in reality none of that took place.
And of this is a true signature audit, will it include all of the steps necessary to make it truly meaningful? As Tea Party co-founder Jenny Beth Martin points out, a real signature audit requires no fewer than three steps to be truly valid:
Breaking: ? @GaSecofState announced there will be signature audit in Cobb Co., GA based on info they did not verify signatures.
My .02 audit must include be in 3 places: signature on file, absentee ballot application sig, AND outer envelope sig – must verify ALL THREE.

Given Raffensperger’s sorry performance to date, we can be sure that his plan does not include all of those steps, and may well not even include any one of them.
What has taken place in Georgia has been a true national travesty, carried out every step of the way not only by Democrats, but by fake Republicans like Raffensperger and his fellow RINO, Governor Brian Kemp. Despite Raffensperger’s self-serving announcement of this “signature audit,” there is no reason at all to believe that that is what will actually take place.
That is all.
