A Georgia watchdog organization has filed a lawsuit demanding that absentee ballots be opened in Fulton County on accusations of possible fraud. Judge Brian Amero said that the ballots might be unsealed, as required by Georgia law, to combat the public’s lack of confidence in the November elections.
“We want this to dispel disinformation and to shed light,” Amero stated at a hearing about the ballots on Monday, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Former Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who is leading a new organization focused on bringing back voter confidence and election integrity supports the plan to “open and investigate” the absentee ballots.
Georgians deserve to have confidence that their voice—and their vote—is heard.
That’s why @GreaterGeorgia fully supports the move to investigate absentee ballots from the 2020 election in Fulton County.

The push to open the absentee ballots is being led by the election integrity activist Garland Favorito, who started the group VoterGA.
