After Thursday’s bombshell security footage that showed vote counting observers being sent home, only for vote counters to pull black suitcases full of votes from underneath a table and begin processing them in the early hours in the morning, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office conceded that “ballots were counted unlawfully and in secret.”
David Shafer, Chair of the Georgia Republican Party, posted the security camera video from Thursday’s hearing on his Twitter account and wrote, “Not sure why Twitter has labeled this ‘disputed’. It is video from the surveillance camera at State Farm Arena where Fulton County election workers scanned ballots late into the night after falsely announcing they were shutting down.”
Our Republican observers and members of the news media departed State Farm when they announced they were shutting down for the night and would resume counting at 8:30 am the next day. This video proves our allegation – that they continued counting ballots in secret until 1:00 am.— David Shafer (@DavidShafer) December 3, 2020
After an NPR and GBP News journalist, Stephen Fowler, falsely reported that the Georgia Secretary of State and Georgia Republican Party engaged in “slight goalpost-moving comments,” Shafer corrected that the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, led by the thus-far unhelpful Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, have amended their stance, and it has always been the Georgia Republican Party’s stance that ballots were counted illegally.
“More false reporting from Stephen Fowler of @GPBNews,” wrote Shafer. “Although originally reporting that state monitors were present,” the Georgia Secretary of State “now acknowledges that this was untrue, as video shows.”
“Our position is unchanged,” he said of the Georgia Republican Party. “Ballots were counted unlawfully and in secret.”
Schafer added, “Even had state monitors been present, the law still requires that ballot counting be open to partisan monitors and the public. But state monitors were not, present,” which the Georgia Secretary of State “now acknowledges and the video shows.”
Remember that water pipe "breaking" in State Farm Arena in Georgia? The one that required GOP poll watchers to evacuate?— Emerald Robinson ✝️ (@EmeraldRobinson) December 4, 2020
There was no pipe break. People stayed behind, brought out hidden suitcases full of ballots & kept counting in the middle of the night.
Caught on video.

History repeats itself.@BrianKempGA needs to take a quick history lesson on what happened to King George III when he failed to respond to American Patriots demands in 1776.— Lin Wood (@LLinWood) December 4, 2020
Our freedom is not for sale to China. Kemp is done in GA.
There is fraud in GA because Kemp is a fraud.

Fulton County Democrats stole the election.
It’s now beyond doubt.
Go to the tape!
If I were the GOV of Georgia after hearing his citizens present testimony today I would stop all engines & decertify the election, conduct a complete and detailed audit of everything (not a fake recount) of ballots as well as the dominion machines immediately.
