Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is calling on the Secretary of State’s office to conduct a signature audit of ballots after allegations of fraud in Georgia were presented at a Senate hearing on Thursday.
On Thursday night, Kemp joined ‘The Ingraham Angle’ on Fox News and said he wants Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to conduct an audit, but Raffensperger has yet to do so.
“I called early on for a signature audit, obviously the secretary of state, per the laws in the Constitution, would have to order that, he has not done that,” Kemp said. “I think it should be done. I think especially with what we saw today it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I think in the next 24 hours we’ll see a lot more.”
Kemp was referring to the surveillance video that was presented by Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani at the Senate hearing, allegedly showing poll watchers being led out of a room at State Farm Arena after being told that the vote count was finished for the night. Once they left, a woman is seen pulling suitcases out from underneath a table that allegedly contained ballots. The votes were allegedly counted for hours, with no election supervisors present.
According to a video reported by One America News, a woman announces to the poll workers, press and observers in the State Farm arena that voting is complete for the night and for everyone to go home. Everyone leaves, except four people stay and count votes well into the night.
“The reason we know this is because when our Republican observers were forced to leave, they went to the central tabulation center and they got word from a news crew that counting had continued. So they retuned back to State Farm arena at about 1:00 in the morning, where they confirmed that people had just left,” OAN reports.
It is believed that there were four boxes of votes and each box consisted of about 6,000 ballots. If accurate, that would amount to about 24,000 potential votes.
Fulton County Elections Office issued the following statement regarding the fraud allegations:
“Elections are among the most important services delivered by counties across Georgia. Fulton County is home to 10% of Georgia voters. We take the responsibility of protecting the vote seriously and have invested every possible resource into ensuring a free, fair and transparent election in compliance with all applicable laws. To date we are aware of no credible reports of voter fraud or wrongdoing in Fulton County. Any credible report of such activity will be investigated and addressed as provided by Georgia law.”
The Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections will hold a virtual meeting Friday morning to re-certify elections results and to discuss other election-related business.

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
