A federal judge dismissed a Georgia lawsuit Thursday challenging the legality of drop boxes and absentee signature verification. The suit, filed by the 12th Congressional District Republican Committee, sought to eliminate the use of absentee ballot drop boxes and invalidate signature matching protocol added earlier this year and for the runoff election.
U.S. District Court Judge J. Randal Hall dismissed the suit. Summarily, Hall stated that the allegations against the security of absentee ballot drop boxes and signature verification were insubstantial. The judge added that the arguments presented by the plaintiffs didn’t justify a need to invalidate drop boxes and overhaul signature verification.
The lawsuit argued that the lack of proper oversight concerning absentee ballot drop boxes and signature verification processes allow for mass election fraud. The defendants named in the suit were Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Georgia State Election Board members, and Richmond County Board of Elections officials.
Following the November 3 general election, allegations surfaced of improper absentee ballot drop box practices and signature verification.
One state senator went so far as to test the efficacy of the state’s signature matching practices. He reported receiving an absentee ballot after the signature submitted on his application obviously differed from the one on his photo ID.
In a statement to The Georgia Star News, national survey research and strategic services company McLaughlin & Associates CEO John McLaughlin explained that
“The drop boxes which have been devised by President Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe and paid for by Mark Zuckerberg’s millions are a partisan tool for unconstitutional Democratic ballot harvesting and fraud,” stated McLaughlin. “They were never authorized by the state legislature. They are overwhelmingly located in Democratic areas, have no secure chain of custody by the Secretary of State who had no clue where they are coming from and according to our polls gave Joe Biden 273,000 net votes in a race that is separate by roughly 12,000 votes out of 5 million.”
McLaughlin stated that the lack of clarity concerning these drop boxes is disconcerting. He pointed out the suspect nature of the relationship between Big Tech’s involvement in these election processes and their coordinated efforts through fact-checkers, warning labels, and other forms of censorship about the election.
“Who really knows how many fraudulent votes cited by the Amistad Project evidence hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes came via Zuckerberg drop boxes? No wonder Zuckerberg and other Big Tech oligarchs are censoring Americans on social media,” he said. “It’s a coverup. I’ll bet the midnight ballots on the infamous Fulton County videos that were counted on election night after they sent Republican monitors home came from these drop boxes. They stole Georgia from President Trump. Now they will steal the U.S. Senate from the American people.”
McLaughlin’s company conducted a poll that revealed a majority of Georgia voters want the state legislature to call a special session.
“If Georgia Republican state senators and house members have to sit in on Christmas Day in the Capitol until they get a special session to eliminate fraud and save our country, they need to do it. This judge’s decision was a travesty. He’s legalizing election and voter fraud via drop box. Goodbye, honest elections in Georgia and America,” he said.
Early voting is currently underway for the Senate runoff election. Incumbent Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are facing off against Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. January 5th is the date of the runoff election.
