The "biblical" lawsuit by Sidney Powell in GA.
Claims in summary are as follows, my comments in .
1. (3) "Ballot Stuffing", esp. in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall and Barrow Counties, which "rigged" the election for Biden.
2. (4-7) New voting machines do not allow a simple audit to reveal misallocation, redistribution or deletion of votes.
a. central accumulator does not include protected real-time audit log.
b. Thus, votes can be added or subtracted from the audit log.
[But the hand count would detect this]
3. (10-11) There was a delay at State Farm Arena in Fulton County, where the facility had to close after polls had closed for several hours at about 10pm. But some workers continued to work at computers until 1 am.
[There is no real claim here that anything specific fraudulent happened.]
4. (12-13) Again, talk of new voting machines. "Non-auditable"
" "I figured out how to make a slightly different computer program that just before the polls were closed, it switches some votes around from one candidate to another"
[This is really nonsense because the votes are recorded on paper and it would take also modifying the paper ballots.]
5. (14, 15) Some affidavit that claims that China and Iran manipulated the election, 100,000s of votes cast for Trump were transferred to Biden.
6. (16) 96,600 absentee ballots were requested and counted and were never recorded as being returned.
[That seems like a mistake by the elections office if they counted them but did not record them as being returned. But if they were legitimately requested and counted, it seems immaterial if they were recorded as returned. They ask that these 96,600 votes be disregarded. There is may not shift the % outcome very much at all, depending on the split, but it might be hard to pull them out now.]
7. (17) Memory sticks found during hand count 3,300 votes found on memory sticks and 2,600 votes had not been scanned.
[True enough, but that is the intention of the hand count, to find mistakes. After the hand count, the outcome was unchanged with these ballots included in the total.]
Election workers in three counties discovered a total of more than 3,300 new votes stored on memory cards that hadn’t been loaded into election computers. A different issue in Floyd County led to another 2,600 ballots going unscanned.
Those votes are now being counted, reducing Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump to 12,781 votes. Trump gained about 1,400 votes that county election officials hadn’t tallied before the recount.
Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting system manager, said the process of reviewing results by hand is serving its purpose by finding any ballots that hadn’t been tabulated.
8 (18). Claim that election officials helped the Dominion system carry out "massive voter manipulation" and "failed to verify signatures and check security envelopes", and barred challengers from observing the count.
[hardly much evidence here]
9 (19) Expert analysis pointing to again the claim of the 96,600 votes illegally counted.
10 (22) "Constitutional grounds" to set aside the election results due to processing and counting absentee ballots which led to the tabulation of more than 50K illegal ballots.
11. (61-62) Claims that the emergency rule to allow opening absentee ballots prior to election day does not comport with legal rule that they cannot be opened. [But the reality is that this procedure is used by many states and it is really not a problem. This is trying to find a problem where no problem exists, but only due to a conflict in the legal language.]
I see that "The State Election Board re-adopted Rule 183-1-14-0.9-.15 on November 23, 2020 for the upcoming January 2021 runoff election."
Thus early processing will be allowed again.
12 (67-71) "Plaintiffs can show that Democrat-majority counties provided political parties and candidates, including the Trump Campaign, no meaningful access or actual opportunity to review and assess the validity of mail-in ballots during the pre-canvassing meetings. While in the audit or recount, they witnessed Trump votes being put into Biden piles. "
[this would be detected with the machine recount if indeed it were true.]
13 (73) the hand count did not verify signatures on mail-in ballots
But at the same time, the observers said that "There had been no meaningful way to review or audit any activity" at the Hand Recount.
14 (74) they claim that during the hand count, some counties did not perform a hand count but used a machine count. (Exh 9 & 10)
15 (75) one batch seemed to be "different" and had votes for Biden. (exh 15)
16 (76) voting machine chain of custody, apparently in Milton precinct.
In this case, we were asked to sign the chain
of custody letter on Sunday, even though the machines were
not delivered until 2:00 AM in the morning on Election Day.
17 (79-80) One observer claims that mistakes were made during the hand count:
“While in Henry County, I personally witnessed ballots cast for Donald Trump being placed in the pile for Joseph Biden, I witnessed this happen at table “A”.’ (See Exh. 14, par. 27). The Affiant further testified, that “when this was brought to Ms. Pitts attention, it was met with extreme hostility. At no time did I witness any ballot cast for Joseph Biden be placed in the pile for Donald Trump. (See Exh. 14, par. 28).
18 (81) No signature verification or review during hand count.
19 (82) too few R monitors in one precinct that had 12 counting tables and only one R observer.
20 (83-90) Trump ballots put in Biden stack during hand count.
21 (92-96, 103-115) Concerns scanning equipment that have no real relevance after the hand count is performed.
22 (97-) Concerns with BMD ballots not representing voter intent.
22 (102) Glitches have the uniform effect of taking votes from Trump and moving to Biden. No evidence.
23 (122) various claims of voters moving from district and voting or absentee ballots sent when not requested.
24 (123) Claims that expert analysis found that many voters switched to Biden from Trump over the change in registrations.
This does not seem unusual to me.
