Motion to proceed immediately with ballot inspection in Fulton County submitted to Superior Court



The motion to proceed immediately with ballot inspection in Fulton County, Georgia has been submitted to the county’s Superior Court. The news came by way of court documents made public on Tuesday.

“Motion to immediately proceed with ballot inspection: Come now, Petitioners Garland Favorito, Michael Scupin, Trevor Terris, Sean Draime, Stacey Doran, Christopher Peck, and Brandi Taylor (hereafter the Favorito Petitioners), by and through their attorneys of record, and file their motion to immediately proceed with ballot inspection,” the motion stated.

“Wherefore, the Favorito Petitioners pray: a) That the court SETS a date, time and location to conduct the planning meeting for the ballot inspection immediately,” it continued. “That the court ORDERS the ballot inspection commence immediately after a suitable ballot inspection plans is devised; AND for any other relief the Court DEEMS just and proper.”

The document dated on the 17th was released publicly on Tuesday morning. In June, a Henry County judge dropped Fulton County, its elections board, and the court clerk from the suit under ‘sovereign immunity’ — but he added individual members of the county’s board of elections as respondents.

The Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero ruled to allow for the inspection of nearly 150,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County, Georgia. The judge’s ballot review, which was requested under ‘discovery’ rules, will apparently proceed.

“The plaintiffs in the case, nine Georgia voters, scored a victory last month when Amero ordered scanned images of 147,000 absentee ballots to be unsealed,” the Washington Examiner reported. “But he placed the inspection, which would allow for high-resolution re-scans of ballots and an in-person review, on hold while considering the defendants’ motions to dismiss.”

“An attorney for the Fulton elections board said the ruling prevents the possibility for an in-person review of absentee ballots using high-powered microscopes in the Georgia World Congress Center, as sought by those who believe fraud resulted in Democrat Joe Biden’s 12,000-vote win over Republican Donald Trump,” the Atlanta Journal Constitution earlier reported.

“That litigation is finished,” said Don Samuel, a prominent Atlanta attorney hired by the Fulton elections board. “Is there going to be an audit? Not right now … There’s no discovery permitted. There’s no lawsuit pending anymore.”

The claimant Garland Favorito argued that the ruling was a victory.

“Favorito plans to submit a ballot inspection plan next week based on the judge’s order in May to unseal absentee ballots, allowing for high-resolution re-scans of ballots and an in-person review,” AJC noted.

“We just want Fulton to be held responsible,” Favorito said. “We could be moving forward any time now unless they try to stall again. Fulton may make a new desperation move to postpone it.”

An independent election audit team recently found numerous examples of ballots double-counted in the Fulton County election. After the release of thousands of ballot images under a Georgia state law that has made them available to the public, the mainstream media finally conceded that hundreds of double-scanned ballots were cast in Fulton County in the 2020 election.

“Digital ballot images made public under Georgia’s new voting law show nearly 200 ballots — including one for [Kanye] West — that election officials initially scanned two times last fall before a recount,” the left-leaning Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last Tuesday.

“The discovery of identical ballots provides evidence to back up allegations of problems in the presidential election, but on a relatively small scale that had no bearing on the final certified count,” AJC baselessly claimed. “A group of voters seeking to prove the election was fraudulent say double-counting is just the beginning of what they hope to find.”

On Tuesday, VoterGA came forward with even more disturbing results from its Fulton County audit, while pointing to the prospect of even ‘worse’ discrepancies in other counties.

  • A 60% error rate in the 1500+ batch totals for the reported audit results
  • Seven falsified tally sheets containing 850 votes for Joe Biden but 0 for
    Donald Trump and Jo Jorgenson
  • Over 4,000 ballots that were duplicated in reporting of the audit results
  • Three days of missing drop box chain of custody forms for over 5,000 ballots
  • Missing tally sheets for over 50,000 ballots that were not uploaded until months after the audit results were initially published

“VoterGA announced today it has evidence election result discrepancies in other Georgia counties may be worse than those it presented for Fulton County at a VoterGA press conference Tuesday,” the group’s statement read. “The revelation came as VoterGA formalized its call for a truly independent, forensic audit of all county results for the November 3rd, 2020 and January 5th, 2021 elections.”
