Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Thursday that he believes there is “no doubt” Democrat Joe Biden won the state of Georgia, despite numerous head-turning findings of Trump-breaking ballots in the Peach State post-Election Day.

“Developing next live at 5 on [WSB TV] – [Georgia Secretory of State] tells me the statewide audit results are in and there’s ‘not a thimble full of difference’ between the hand & manual recount,” said investigative reporter Justin Gray on Friday. “He says he has no doubt Joe Biden has won Georgia.”

Asked if there is “any doubt” in his mind that Biden won the state, Raffensperger responded, “No, there’s no doubt. The numbers support that; so does the audit.”

The Trump campaign and leading Republican officials in the state have pushed back on the Georgia audit, questioning why signatures are not being examined, likening the audit to a recount and unhelpful in uncovering apparent fraud.

The Georgia secretary of state said he has not seen any evidence of “major fraud.”

Following the interview, it was reported that Trump Team attorney Lin Wood had his emergency motion denied to delay vote certification in the state.

“A federal judge in Atlanta has denied Trump ally [Lin Wood]’s emergency motion to stop Georgia’s election certification,” reported Gray.


It appears Raffensperger intends to move forward with the certification, which is set for Friday at 5 p.m.

In an interview published Wednesday at The Hill, Raffensperger said talks of voter fraud in his state are a play on people’s emotions.

“There’s just people who are really angry and they’re being spun up,” he said. “It’s really the spinners that should be ashamed for playing with people’s emotions. Politicians of both sides should never play with people’s emotions. It’s one thing to motivate people, I get that, but to spin people up and play with their emotions, it’s emotional abuse and they ought to grow up and start acting with integrity.”

“I’m a Republican, I’m a conservative one, and I don’t like the idea that President Trump is not going to win,” Raffensperger continued, responding to criticism from the president that the secretary of state is a “Republican in Name Only,” or a “RINO.” “But at the end of the day, I want every voter to know we’re going to do our job and make sure every legal vote is counted.”

And it’s not just Trump who’s frustrated with Raffensperger; GA GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have called for the secretary of state’s resignation.

“The management of Georgia elections has become an embarrassment for our state. Georgians are outraged, and rightly so. We have been clear from the beginning: every legal vote cast should be counted. Any illegal vote must not. And there must be transparency and uniformity in the counting process. This isn’t hard. This isn’t partisan. This is American,” the pair said in a joint-statement.

“While blame certainly lies elsewhere as well, the buck ultimately stops with the Secretary of State. The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State is unacceptable. Honest elections are paramount to the foundations of our democracy,” the senators continued. “The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately.”

  1. I’ve been surfing around, on Israpundit as well as the rest of the Internet, trying to find some definitive answer about who will be US President on 21 Jan. 2021; and find that the above posting, by yours truly, is the best place to begin.

    While I wouldn’t recommend this small piece of information as “prophecy”, it is definitely what I personally would consider at this point of time to be very good “opinionecy”.

    Of course, being very good opinionecy, the two photos and three supplemental lines of text require interpretation, the best being this:

    1. James Dean starred in a movie, which I believe was called “Rebel Without a Cause”, in which he played chicken with a rival. The result was that both cars went over the cliff and were completely ruined, and the rival died. Dean survived, to be idolized by young people throughout the world and worshipped by (1) growing long hair and repeatedly grooming it and (2) doing rebellious things like wearing open collars and revealing a T-shirt underneath.

    2. One would think that such a famous actor would go on to fame and fortune; but ironically he died only a short time later by completely wrecking a Porsche and NOT surviving. His rival from “Rebel Without a Cause”, meanwhile, went on to live what I imagine was an ordinary life.

    3. The current presidential election is very much a “chicken” race, like that in the movie: neither side has clearly won yet, and neither side is likely to concede until the country is in ruins.

    4. One mustn’t take this analogy too far, and conclude that the presidential contest will CAUSE the country will end up in ruins. My opinion is that it will do so no matter what; and in fact, I don’t expect to see any peaceful end to the mutual accusations that will ensue, whoever wins. Back to the analogy, both cars will be in ruins (all three, in fact, if you count the Porsche), and at least two lives will be lost — one real and one a Hollywood fiction.

    That’s my opinionecy. If you would like a different opinionecy, Scott Adams presents one at
