Better buckle up folks, it looks like the situation in Georgia is just heating up.
The state just recently moved to certify the vote in the 2020 election after a pathetic “audit” turned up over 2,000 votes for president Trump.
Now keep in mind that that wasn’t even a full audit, and just look at the large numbers of votes that were unturned in favor of Trump, which definitely bears weight considering Biden only holds the state by roughly 12,000 votes.
Certifying the vote now gives Trump even more of an advantage to get a more focused recount done, which Georgia Governor Brian Kemp was quick to suggest:

Here’s some more information on the significance of these “lost votes” that were found for Trump.
ATLANTA — A statewide hand recount of more than 5 million votes cast for the presidential race in Georgia reaffirmed Joe Biden’s win in the Peach State but also exposed serious flaws with the state’s new $107 million voting system, something Republicans are likely to seize upon.
The audited vote totals by hand had Biden at 2,475,141, compared to President Trump’s 2,462,857, reducing Biden’s lead from about 14,000 votes to 12,284.
Once Georgia certifies the election results, the losing campaign – in this case Trump – will have two business days to request a second recount, which would be done using scanners that read and tally votes, unlike the first recount which was done by hand. The second recount would be paid for by the counties, some of which are cash-strapped due to COVID-19.
It was up to Raffensperger to select which race would be audited, and he chose the presidential one, saying it made the most sense because of the tight margin separating the candidates.
Going into the hand recount, Biden led Trump by about 14,000 votes.
Previously uncounted ballots were discovered in four counties — during the hand count. In the other counties, there were only slight differences in the results, which state election officials repeatedly said was to be expected.
Discrepancies in Georgia’s recount numbers raised some eyebrows and exposed flaws in the state’s new $107 million voting system that could have resulted in some ballots being overlooked had it not been for the hand count.
This move by Kemp can be seen as perhaps a last ditch effort by the highly unpopular governor to try and save some face, but regardless, President Trump and his attorney Sidney Powell pounced and issued this powerful warning.

Things are far from over in Georgia.
There’s clearly an abundance of unanswered questions, so much so that even Kemp is calling for another audit.
