President Donald Trump got more than what he bargained for on Tuesday after unleashing a furious tweet demanding answers about Georgia’s verification of signatures.
In his tweet, Trump lashed out at state officials, proclaiming that there was no signature match being done for early voting.
However, he got his bubble burst by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), who responded by announcing that the state has been doing the signature matches like every other election in which they must check signatures for mail-in votes and the result shows a superb accuracy rate.
In a statement to CNN’s Jim Sciuto, Raffensperger said that an audit in Cobb County found “no fraudulent absentee ballots,” and Elections Dept had a “99.9% accuracy rate in performing correct signature verification procedures.”
When are we going to be allowed to do signature verification in Fulton County, Georgia? The process is going VERY slowly. @BrianKempGA Pennsylvania just found 205,000 votes more than they had voters. Therefore, we WIN Pennsylvania!!!
