Georgia Secretary of State election official Gabriel Sterling announced at a news conference on Tuesday that 2,755 uncounted votes were found on a memory card in Fayette County. It wasn’t the only county to find thousands of missing votes.

These votes, which will be included in the county’s re-certified results, will lead to a net gain for Donald Trump of 449 votes, according to Sterling.

There are now four counties – Walton, Douglas, Fayette and Floyd – where uncounted votes were discovered. On Monday, the Secretary of State’s office announced an error found in Floyd County where 2,600 ballots were left uncounted.

Tuesday evening, Walton County found 284 votes on a memory card from an election day polling precinct that were never counted.There was no explanation how the memory card wasn’t uploaded to the system and it left many wondering if there were any other votes out there that have been misplaced, lost or purposefully removed.

That find in Walton County narrowed the margin in Trump’s favor by 176 votes.

While uncounted votes have been found in three counties, the secretary of state’s office has yet to acknowledged the claims, and has continued to defend the integrity of the election and the voting process.

According to ABCNews, one of the secretary’s top deputies said the secretary of state’s office has “not seen any evidence” that there are enough of those votes to flip the outcome.

Marci McCarthy, a party monitor representing the Georgia GOP, was shocked when she heard the news of the uncounted votes.

McCarthy has been volunteering as an observer in DeKalb County while they recount the votes.

“I was pretty astounded when the first discovery happened in Floyd County and then subsequently after, in Fayette County. And now in the late night hours, in Walton County,” said McCarthy. “If these were Democrat counties, the Democrats would be outraged.”

The state has three days left to certify its election results.There are another 32 counties that found the results of the audit were off compared to their originally reported results.

“The hope is we don’t find any more of these counties with, you know, a couple of hundred here or 3,000 votes there, but the reason you do the audit is to find these kind of human errors and then make sure that they are corrected,” Sterling said Tuesday.

As claims of uncounted votes and irregularities continue to be reported, many Americans are losing faith in our election system.

“With three different Republican counties in Georgia that were discovered containing thousand of uncounted ballots, I am very concerned about the accuracy and reliability of our election, said Baer-McCarthy. “We’ve been asked to accept much of this at face value. But there has been a lack of transparency, the process has been riddled with human error and there are many accusations of voter fraud. While many of these items are still being investigated, it does not give anybody, including myself, a warm feeling that our election process is fair, transparent and reliable.”

She added, “as Americans, we deserve election integrity. And have the right to question it when it is not forth-coming.”

CNN announces controversial presidential debate rules obviously intended to benefit Biden

CNN announced its several presidential debate rules over the weekend sparking controversy. The rules will govern the upcoming debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on June 27. A

After Trump publicly stated he would debate the president “any time and any where” the Biden campaign agreed to a total of two debates that would be closely regulated. Not only did the administration demand a ban on audiences, it also approved CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash as its moderators. Breitbart reports Tapper is one of Trump’s sharpest critics.

CNN announced its own additional parameters on Saturday, which likely were done in partnership with the White House:

  • Two commercial breaks (Likely to benefit Biden)
  • Campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidate during the break
  • No opening statements, two-minute closing statements
  • Two-minute answer shot clock, one minute for rebuttals
  • Mics will be muted “except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak” (Likely to benefit Biden)

CNN reported its rules:

The 90-minute debate will include two commercial breaks, according to the network, and campaign staff may not interact with their candidate during that time. Both candidates agreed to appear at a uniform podium, and their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip.

Microphones will be muted throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak. While no props or pre-written notes will be allowed on the stage, candidates will be given a pen, a pad of paper and a bottle of water.

Some aspects of the debate – including the absence of a studio audience – will be a departure from previous debates. But, as in the past, the moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce timing and ensure a civilized discussion,” according to the network.

Breitbart reports that the President is planning to spend about a week preparing to debate Trump who has also requested Biden receive a drug test before the debates. The White House did not respond in May as to whether Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates.

Ron Klain, Biden’s former chief of staff who is going on vacation to help Biden prepare for the debates, did not respond to Politico Playbook’s request for comment about “whether any illegal substances are used as part of Klain’s debate prep.”
