Adding to concerns about possible voter fraud in the 2018 midterm elections is a report from Georgia that “new” absentee, early and election day ballots have suddenly been discovered. Even more suspicious is the source of this report: the Democrat Party of Georgia.
“A handful of Georgia counties just reported thousands of new *absentee*, *early*, and *Election Day* votes that @BrianKempGA’s numbers did not account for, significantly closing the gap,” the party tweeted Saturday afternoon.

While it’s unclear where these ballots came from or whether they’ve been tallied yet, as of Sunday morning GOP gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp still reportedly maintained a sturdy 50,000+ vote lead over Democrat nominee Stacey Abrams.
Those worried about potential voter fraud in Georgia suspect that the influx of “new” ballots might be just as tainted as the flurry of ballots that appeared last week in nearby Florida, where the results of both a gubernatorial and senatorial race still remain undecided.
Florida finally began a recount Sunday morning, albeit reportedly several hours late:
Over in Georgia the Democrat nominee has refused to concede defeat to Kemp.
“Democrat Stacey Abrams argues that not all votes have been counted, and mobilized a campaign to reach out to voters who used provisional ballots to ensure their votes were counted,” CBS News reported. “Kemp’s camp argues there are not enough ballots left uncounted to narrow the margin and ensure a December 4 recount would take place.”
In a race this close, one vote could be the difference between a loss, a runoff, or a victory. If you voted on a provisional (paper) ballot, you need to make sure your vote was counted. Call Voter Protection immediately: 1-888-730-5816. #gapol pic.twitter.com/Kcb2lQycoE

The fear by supporters of Kemp is that either Abrams or her supporters will try to sneak fake ballots into the process to force a runoff. Her office’s release of invalid numbers only added to this trepidation.
“Abram’s campaign said their findings show a total of 26,846 provisional ballots are uncounted as of Saturday morning,” NBC News reported, adding that according to the official records maintained by the Georgia secretary of state’s office, there were only 21,190 outstanding ballots.
This discrepancy matters because Abrams needs exactly 23,700 more votes to force a recount, and exactly 25,600 more to force a runoff. And seems eerily coincidental to some that the # cited by Abrams’ campaign — 26,846 — happens to be more than both requirements.

Voter suppression is a propaganda lie.
You never hear of Republicans trying to steal an election with “provisional” ballots and non-citizen voters.
I wonder why.

Democrats loudly insist thousands of ‘new’ ballots just ‘found’ 4 days after the election should just be accepted and counted without any of you goddamn conspiracy theorists raising any objections to it.
You know what I say to that? Kiss my ass.https://t.co/IxOShLMgK5

What a phucking crock. How is it new ballots only show up in races list by @DNC radicals.
Prosecute these fraudsters.

“Surprise ballots”. We should all be very concerned for many different reasons. Biased election workers and officials have the ability to affect our election results. No one should have that kind of power.#SundayMorning #SundayThoughts #SundayMotivationhttps://t.co/3aD2LeHiaL

Georgia Democrats taking their cue from Florida, “finding new votes.” Has it occurred to anyone that it’s statistically impossible that EVERY time additional votes are found in major US elections, they favor Democrats?

No surprise if Dems can’t win by a LEGAL vote count than they lie, cheat to try and come up with enough ballets to win. Then when they lose they riot and join a resist mob. https://t.co/X9CldPzOBw
