ATLANTA, Georgia – A district judge denied attorney Lin Wood’s motion to delay certification of the Georgia voting results. Wood presented 17 affidavits alleging potential voter fraud, from both monitors and workers. One affidavit came from a purported former right-hand man of prior Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, detailing the electronic voting systems’ relation to ones used in the 2020 election.
Although the judge dismissed the case, Wood stated that he will appeal the case to the Eleventh Circuit court.
“1. A motion to delay certification of GA vote based on a flawed recount was denied this evening by Atlanta Judge Steven D. Grimberg. The oral ruling was unclear but he may have overreached to dismiss my claim that election was unlawful due to @GaSecofState consent agreement. 2. The recount issue was separate from unlawful election issue. Sounded like Court thinks GA voter has NO standing to challenge unlawful federal election. Lawyer for Sec. of State suggested only state AG could do so. What? AG represents @GaSecofState. Makes no sense. 3. GA voters have rights. It is OUR right to vote. We The People must have legal right to challenge backroom deals cut by state officials. They will not sue each other. An appeal will be filed to Eleventh Circuit. I did not do this for GA voters because it was easy. Stay tuned.”
Thursday, the judge scheduled an emergency hearing for Wood’s case against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. District Judge Steven D. Grimberg heard the case for an emergency motion injunction.
Wood tweeted the news on Thursday morning.
“Good morning. District Judge has scheduled an emergency hearing this afternoon in the case I filed against @GaSecofState. In time, these names will also be part of litigation across the country: Dominion, Scytl, SGO Smartmatic, Clarity. TRUTH IS COMING.”
Wood included a link to a Newsmax interview with a Trump Recount Committee member Brian Trascher as well as attorney and Republican strategist Amanda Makki – both of whom claimed that a server raid had interfered with the election.
Wood filed suit last week several days after the election audit began. Legislators and their constituents have expressed concern over the nature of the audit after it was revealed that signature matching wouldn’t occur and the number of monitors would be limited.
In light of these insecurities over election integrity ahead of the runoff election, Republicans have asked Governor Brian Kemp to call a special session to strengthen election laws.
Not long after the ruling, reports of the hand recount results published reaffirming Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s lead against President Donald Trump.
