View on voter fraud update and Georgia senate races

By Jeff Brown

All types of fraud have been exposed in this election. If you want to hear a long list of such alleged fraud, listen to President Trump’s Dec. 2 speech.

So far, there is insufficient evidence to overturn former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead of 306 electoral votes versus Trump’s 232. On Dec. 1, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr agreed.

For Trump to be reelected, he must get 38 more electoral votes. The following are the contested states with the votes needed to be reversed by court actions and their electoral votes — Arizona 11,500 /11; Georgia 13,000/16; Michigan 115,000/16; Nevada 33,000/6: Pennsylvania 82,000/20; and Wisconsin 21,000/10.

One way for Trump to get 270+ electoral votes is to prove that in enough of the states above, all of whom used Dominion election software, he was denied sufficient votes for him to win 38+ electors. Attorney Sydney Powell seemed the most likely source of proving that Dominion reversed votes, but she is backtracking on some of her claims saying some of her witnesses have been intimidated and withdrew their affidavits. I said Nov. 17 that Trump will leave office peacefully on January 20, 2021, if indeed if Biden receives at least 270 electoral votes Dec. 14. I still believe this.

This brings us to Georgia where there is a Jan. 5 election for 2 U.S. Senators. The Republicans have 50 Senators now, so they must win at least one of these two Senate seats. If they lose both, Vice President candidate Senator Kamala Harris — if confirmed by the Electoral College — will vote on all 50/50 ties. Obviously, she will vote with the Democrats.

Many are demanding that the governor convene a special legislative session to address the above types of voter fraud from happening Jan. 5 and/or somehow prove enough votes for Biden were fraudulent, so Trump wins Georgia. I’d love to see this session but based on my limited research I do not see how this could result in either or both goals being realized.

I think that contesting the presidential vote is warranted and is showing honest elected Democrats and Republicans that lack of voter integrity is further dividing our country. There are common sense changes to correct this without voter suppression.

Let’s do it.
