In a tweet Monday, President Donald Trump asked Governor Brian Kemp to override Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on matching signatures during the state’s recount.
“Why won’t Governor @BrianKempGA, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state….”
He added, “You may find that there are so many more ballots than there are envelopes.”
Trump said Sunday he was “ashamed” for endorsing the Republican Georgia Governor after he lost in the state to Democrat Joe Biden.
“The Governor’s done nothing,” Trump said Sunday on Fox News. “He’s done absolutely nothing. I’m ashamed that I endorsed him.”
Kemp released a statement Monday morning responding to Trump’s comments.
“Georgia law prohibits the Governor from interfering in elections. The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order. As the Governor has said repeatedly, he will continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps – including a sample audit of signatures – to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised.”
Raffensperger has said that matching the signature on the outer envelope to the absentee ballot on the inside is impossible because the ballots are separated from the envelopes when they are opened to protect voter privacy.
The Trump campaign, which asked for a recount Nov. 22, said that “without signature-matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted.”
The election recount was delayed in Fulton County, Ga where a Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashed. Election officials said the recount there would resume Monday.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity from the picket line after President Joe Biden’s “brief” few minutes of support with the United Auto Workers strike in Michigan. Biden spent a “whopping 12 minutes with those UAW workers outside the plant today” said Carter.
“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.
“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.
Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
