VoterGA issued a press release today on the ‘Kemp Report’ and what it really disclosed. You can read the entire release below:
ATLANTA, Nov. 27, 2021 – A new report recently released by the office of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp acknowledged massive errors and fraudulent reporting in the hand count audit of Fulton County mail-in ballots conducted on November 14 and 15 for the 2020 Presidential election. Gov. Kemp sent a 36-point report to the State Election Board showing inconsistencies first revealed by VoterGA. Kemp also sent a cover letter asking them to investigate the audit reporting, review the audit methodology and take corrective action.
The Kemp report was based on an analysis voluntarily provided to Kemp’s office by retired Perry, Ga. executive Joe Rossi and attorney Jack James. The office independently verified the veracity of their claims for several weeks. The Rossi and James analysis is based on conclusions first revealed at a July 13 VoterGA press conference that featured a review of inconsistencies by David Cross, Portfolio Manager and owner of U.S. Asset Management. Gov. Kemp commended Rossi and James for their work as did VoterGA co-founder, Garland Favorito who stated: “We are truly grateful that Joe and Jack devoted months of effort to review the indefensible audit anomalies with Gov. Kemp’s office.”
The Kemp report identified 36 instances of duplicate or misidentified batches in the Fulton audit. Most of the examples are part of 36 incorrectly reported batches and 4,255 duplicate reported votes that were added to the Fulton November audit results according to Cross and VoterGA. The misidentified batches are part of the errors that comprised a whopping 60% batch error rate revealed at the press conference.
Vote misallocations also identified in the Kemp report highlight 7 falsified tally sheets that VoterGA revealed in July. For example, a batch containing 60 ballot images voted for Joe Biden, and 40 voted for Donald Trump was reported as 100 for Biden and 0 for Trump. The 7 batches of ballot images with 554 votes for Joe Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump and 11 votes for Jo Jorgenson had tally sheets in the audit falsified to show 850 votes for Biden, 0 votes for Trump and 0 votes for Jorgenson. [5160-19. 5160-20. 5160-21, 5160-22. 5164-35, 5164-36, 5164-37]
Petitioners organized by VoterGA to file the Fulton counterfeit ballot lawsuit amended their complaint to include claims for the duplications, errors and fraudulent reporting but that case was recently dismissed based on a “particularized injury” ruling that defied 100 years of U.S. Supreme Court precedents. Examples of those precedents are:
- “We regard it as equally unquestionable that the right to have one’s vote counted is as open to protection by Congress as the right to put a ballot in a box.” U.S. V. Mosely (1915)
- “The right to vote …[cannot]… be diluted by ballot box stuffing.” Reynolds v. Sims (1964)
Petitioners have appealed that case to the Georgia Court of Appeals. But it could take months for the court to docket the appeal, thus accentuating the need for a 2020 election audit. Favorito explained the urgency: “The Kemp report corroborates what we explained at the July 13 press conference: it is not possible that the Fulton hand count audit could confirm the original election results. Time is running out. We must have a multi-county audit to determine what went wrong and how to fix it for 2022.”
