Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has announced that the presidential election results are close enough that it requires a recount, by hand, in every county in the state. …
Biden currently leads in Georgia by 14,000 votes, according to NPR, whose headline about this story is amusing, to say the least. “Georgia Will Conduct A Hand Recount Amid GOP’s Baseless Fraud Claims,” reports NPR, completely unironically, while pretending to be unbiased. I don’t know how the claims could be baseless when the majority of them haven’t been litigated in court. Further, Raffensperger did not allege vote fraud in Georgia but announced the recount because the spread is within the legal margin and the law allows for it.
With Trump voters distrusting the voting process after hearing many reports of “election irregularities,” Raffensperger believes a recount will put their minds at ease.
Good. Extreme transparency is necessary at this point, to rebuild trust.
