Happy Thanksgiving. Misspelling “district” twice right out the gate,
Trump’s ex-lawyer Sidney Powell filed a lawsuit alleging that as many as 96,000 votes were illegally counted in Georgia without showing substantiated evidence of her claims. #gapol bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
It claims w/o evidence “old-fashioned ballot-stuffing” through computer software and “egregious” conduct in five of the most GOP counties in Georgia, but never bothers to specify what allegedly happened in each. #gapol
It was brought on behalf of five Georgia Republicans who would have been electors had Trump won, and two party officials: Jason Shepherd of the Cobb GOP and B.J. Van Gundy, assistant secretary of the state party. #gapol
No, I did not expect to see my name in the lawsuit. #gapol
The crux of the claims are debunked conspiracy theories about Venezuela’s ties to Dominion and “incontrovertible evidence” that more than 96k absentee ballots were counted but not recorded, a claim made by an ex-Texas GOP candidate cited in several of these complaints. #gapol
I’m going to run the virtual @ajc Peachtree Road Race now, but we will have more from our team later on this. Happy Thanksgiving, folks. Hope you all get to spend time with your loved ones - even if remotely - and away from the news cycle for a bit. #gapol #ajcprr

Echoing Trump, @sendavidperdue is asking for the impossible - a recount “in which signatures on absentee ballot envelopes are properly matched and verified to their signature on the registration.” #gapol
County election officials verify signatures when they receive absentee ballots, but after that point, it’s impossible to match ballots back to voters due to ballot secrecy protections guaranteed by the Georgia Constitution. #gapol #gasen

Now the @GaRepublicans leadership gets in on the action, with a letter making the same impossible demand — “an immediate audit of the absentee ballots cast in the 2020 General Election. This audit must include verification of signature match.” #gapol

Meanwhile, the Pence caravan went the wrong direction on 285 - east instead of west - and is now back in the right direction trying to ease its way through gridlocked traffic to Dobbins Air Reserve Base. #gapol
We are moving again, but here’s a glimpse of the gridlock from the great @AlyssaNo_L #gapol
Phew, we made it.

Sen. @TomCottonAR in Georgia: “We all wish these elections had been won on Nov. 3. But sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways ... He has given you the opportunity and the honor to hold the line and make sure that Republicans remain in charge.” #gapol #gasen
To be clear, Cotton is talking about the Georgia Senate races forced into runoffs - not Trump. Says @sendavidperdue, making same claims he made in first round: “This is critical because the Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftist socialists ...” #gapol #gasen
.@SenatorLoeffler’s go-to campaign stump speech addition: “Hold the line” - a phrase she’s uttered about a half-dozen times.
“I know we're gonna hold the line, because no one wants the radical agenda of the left.” #gapol #gasen
