On Tuesday, Democrat John Ossoff came just barely short of the 50% vote needed to fill Health and Human Services Dir. Tom Price’s representative seat in Georgia’s 6th district with a Democrat for the first time in 4 decades.
While Ossoff is still projected to win the June runoff vote, it appears Republicans and Trump supporters especially, have been up to their old election fraud tactics to keep Ossoff out. The election is seen as a sort of referendum on Trump’s presidency, and should Ossoff win, could signal that Democrats could retake the House sooner than imagined.
While we don’t want to come right out and say that polling equipment containing information on every Georgia voter that was stolen from District 6 right before the vote was necessarily the work of Republicans, doesn’t it seem like stealing polling equipment containing information on every Georgia voter is a really Republican thing to do? Does the Russian data theft scandal ring a bell?
Washington Post reports:
News outlets report four ExpressPoll machines were stolen from a poll manager’s truck in Marietta on Saturday.
Cobb County Elections Director Janine Eveler says the machines have a list of voter names and addresses, as well as driver’s license numbers. She says it’s unclear if the thieves would be able to access the information.
Secretary of State Brian Kemp has criticized the county elections office for waiting two days to publicize the theft. His office has rendered the stolen units ineffective.
Cobb County police are investigating and a formal State Election Board investigation has been opened.
It’s important to note that Cobb county in the 3rd largest county in Georgia.
Also, there were apparently “computer issues” causing major delays in the election.
It all just reeks of Republicans trying their damnedest to keep Democrats out of office.
Let’s get the word out and encourage Georgia voters to do the right thing in June and get Ossoff in this seat. Trump doesn’t want this to happen, and if it’s bad for Trump, it’s good for America.
