The state of Georgia will launch a second recount after the Trump campaign alleged there were “false” election results.
According to The Daily Wire:
Georgia will begin a third recount of its election results on Tuesday after the Trump campaign requested another one over the weekend, alleging “false results.”
The Georgia secretary of state’s office announced the additional recount on Monday evening during a press conference. The Trump campaign criticized Georgia’s first recount, which took place over the course of last week and uncovered two errors worth thousands of votes each on Saturday….
The Trump campaign is legally entitled to a recount upon request with the costs of such an operation covered by Georgia state and local governments, according to Politico. The first recount in the state was initiated by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as a way to ensure the integrity of the state’s election process after he took heavy criticism throughout the primary and general election over how the process was conducted.
The Trump campaign’s call for a recount additionally asserted that election officials should audit signatures on mail ballot envelopes.
The Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger claimed that he does not see the additional recount changing the results much.
