During an interview with Fox News on Thursday evening, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp called for a signature audit of Georgia’s election results, arguing that what was revealed during a Georgia Senate Government Oversight Committee hearing was “concerning.”
“You know, I’ve called early on for a signature audit, obviously the secretary of state, per the laws and the Constitution would have to order that; he has not done that,” Kemp said. “I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we’ll see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we’ll be able to look and see what the next steps are.”
Kemp went on to hammer alleged Trump supporting attorney Lin Wood who told Republicans not to vote in the upcoming runoff election in Georgia.

“It’s like Lin Wood saying today, urging the people not to go vote in this election — all that is gonna do is give the Democrats everything they want,” Kemp said. “It’s gonna give the radicals everything they want. This is literally the firewall. So, I think we all have to pull together and figure out what have we got to do to assure people that their vote’s gonna count. I believe that it will; that’s why I’m working so hard for David and Kelly, and I’m going to continue to do that.”
Kemp’s pivot came after bombshell security footage was released at a hearing, allegedly showing ballots being pulled out of suitcases to be counted after all of the ballot counters had already left.
“WATCH: Video footage from Georgia shows suitcases filled with ballots pulled from under a table AFTER supervisors told poll workers to leave room and 4 people stayed behind to keep counting votes,” Team Trump wrote in a tweet containing video of the incident.
“The campaign identified a blonde woman with braided hair who put the table in the room around 8:22 a.m. on Election Day, adding she is the same one who dismissed poll observers “under the pretense that” the count was going to stop, Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis says, narrating the video,” reported Trending Politics.
“I saw four suitcases come out from underneath the table,” Ellis said, as people in the room then take the ballots over to tabulation machines to be counted.
“So, what are these ballots doing there separate from all the other ballots? And why are they only counting them when the place is cleared out with no witnesses?” she added.
“These machines can process about 3,000 ballots an hour. You have multiple machines there. And you’re there for two hours. So you do the math…how many ballots went through those machines in those two hours when there was no one there to supervise, to be present, consistent with [Georgia] statutes and rules to supervise the tabulation?” Ellis continued.
“We believe that can easily be, and probably is, certainly, beyond the margin of victory in this race.”
