(ReliableNews.org) – Georgia is a historically red state. The last time voters picked a Democrat for president was in the 90’s when they voted for Bill Clinton. On Election Day, President Donald Trump was leading Joe Biden by hundreds of thousands of votes. As that lead began to narrow, the president filed a lawsuit over suspicious ballots. Now, a judge has issued a ruling.
The Georgia Republican Party and the Trump Campaign filed a lawsuit on November 4 against the Chatham County Board of Elections asking a judge to make them secure any ballots received after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3. The suit came after poll watchers alleged they’d seen a worker take 53 unprocessed ballots from a back room and mix them with absentee votes.

On Thursday, Chatham Superior Court Judge James Bass refused the request by the campaign and GOP. Officials in the county testified the 53 ballots arrived before the polls closed on Election Day, making them legal votes. Despite the ruling, Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, announced on Friday that a recount will be expected due to the ballots being “too close to call.” It is evident that questions still remain.
