Project Veritas exposed Georgia recount auditors who wrongly attributed votes to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“The second person was supposed to be checking it right, three times in three minutes she called out Biden,” an RNC monitor told Project Veritas. “The second auditor caught it, and she said, “No, this is Trump.”
“Now, that’s just while I’m standing there. So, does the second checker catch it every time? But this lady in three times in three minutes from 2:09 to 2:12 she got three wrong,” he continued.
The RNC monitor also caught another person, not auditing ballots. If the first auditor handing her a ballot said “Biden” or “Trump,” she would just put the ballot in the respective pile without even looking at it, he said.
The RNC monitor said the ballot counter became hostile toward him after he reported her to the election officials.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has ordered an audit and a recount of nearly 5 million ballots by hand because the presidential race was so close. Several media outlets have called the state for Biden with just over 14,000 votes over President Trump.
David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, said RNC observers are limited to one credentialed monitor for every 10 counting tables.
“Congressman Doug Collins and I asked for a one to one ratio yesterday, but our request was refused,” David Shafer said. “We are allowed an unlimited number of observers, but they must remain outside the yellow tape line.”
We are limited to one credentialed monitor for each ten counting tables. Congressman Doug @CollinsforGA and I asked for a one to one ratio yesterday but our request was refused.

President Trump called the Georgia recount “Fake” because “they are not allowing signatures to be looked at and verified.”
The Fake recount going on in Georgia means nothing because they are not allowing signatures to be looked at and verified. Break the unconstitutional Consent Decree!

On Monday, it was revealed in Floyd County, Georgia, that more than 2,600 ballots were not counted due to a machine error. All Georgia counties use Dominion Voting Systems to count votes, according to Politico.
The found votes favored President Trump almost two-to-one, cutting Biden’s 14,000 vote lead by about 800 votes.
Raffensperger has faced criticism from GOP and Democratic politicians over errors in the state’s election process. On Nov. 9, both Georgia’s GOP senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, joined their Democratic challenger to call for Raffensperger’s resignation.
