Nearly three years after the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office has finally admitted that faulty ballot handling took place. This admission couldn’t come at a worse time for Trump’s enemies, since they are trying to jail him for doubting the results of the election.
This all came about because Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and her former husband, Perry Greene, refused to accept the numerous excuses and lies from the Georgia Secretary of State’s office.
The road to this admission started back in 2020, when Perry Greene showed up to vote only to discover that someone else had already voted in his name. This happened to untold numbers of Trump voters in every swing state in 2020.
“My then husband, Perry Greene showed up to vote and was told he already voted by absentee ballot but did NOT and NEVER requested an absentee ballot,” tweeted Rep. Greene.
The Secretary of State’s office and the media called Rep. Greene and her husband liars. After a three-year battle and a FOIA request, Rep. Greene finally got the documents from Raffensperger’s office that proved she was telling the truth all along.
“The fraud was in the Secretary of State website,” continued Greene. “It showed an absentee ballot had been turned in (in his name) but he had never turned one in.”
Perry Green confirmed his ex-wife’s description of what happened.
Now a spokesperson for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger named Mike Hassinger has admitted, “Audit logs from the voter registration system show that a county worker took action to issue a ballot for the voter at 4:03PM on October 23, 2020. They subsequently canceled that ballot. Then, 5 minutes later at 4:08PM, they issued another ballot to the voter and successfully checked in the voter to allow him to vote advanced in-person.”
Hassinger claims that this was a “likely poll worker error,” but avoids mentioning the fact that Perry Greene’s first ballot was canceled because someone else had already voted in his name.
The next statement from Hassinger is key, and Brad Raffensperger is probably kicking himself right now for letting this guy speak. Hassinger said:
“[A]ccording to our records, this is obviously a county-level error, which the county addressed publicly in their previous statements. Floyd County made many mistakes during the 2020 election which is why our office called for their director to resign.”
That is a huge admission in favor of President Donald Trump and his legal team. President Trump is set to be arrested in Fulton County, Georgia on Thursday of this week. District Attorney Fani Willis is using a “novel legal theory” to try to imprison President Trump for disagreeing with the outcome of the 2020 election.
In order for Willis’s legal theory to actually work, she will have to prove that Donald Trump was lying when he said the 2020 election was stolen. She can only convict him on these fake charges if she can convince a jury that President Trump believed he had lost the election, but lied to everyone by claiming it was stolen. In other words, the case hinges on Trump’s state of mind as he was trying to uncover all the fraud that happened in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Nevada. (And Maine, and Rhode Island, and Virginia, and Oregon, etc., etc.)
Therefore, Raffensperger’s office just handed a huge gift to President Trump and his legal team. If there were “many mistakes” in the 2020 election, as the Georgia Secretary of State’s office finally admits, then it would be perfectly reasonable for Donald Trump to believe the election was stolen.
As awful as Trump’s multiple fake arrests and indictments are for the country, this Georgia case could turn out to have a silver lining. Trump’s legal team will finally get to adjudicate and explain all of the obvious fraud that took place in Georgia in 2020 in front of a court. Hopefully the judge in the case, in his hubris, will allow television cameras into the courtroom. If that happens, this trial could turn out to be a must-see television event.
Either way, it’s now official and on the record: There were “many mistakes” in the 2020 election in Georgia.
