We told you yesterday about the 2631 votes being “discovered” in Floyd County that hadn’t been tabulated into the vote count because of an alleged scanner problem and then it just was not counted. Most were for President Donald Trump, which gave him about an 800 vote pick up in Georgia.
This was after folks on the left said this kind of thing could never happen and you don’t pick up that number of votes in a recount, that all of this wouldn’t show anything.
Well, guess what? It just happened again, in another county. Oh, my, can we say what the heck was going on here?
Similar to what happened in Floyd County, election workers in Fayette County appear to have failed to upload a memory card with thousands of votes on it into the system.
And we have a second county in Georgia where all the votes were not counted. Fayette County voted 53-46 for Trump. https://t.co/IJd5bAYY8F

2,755 votes that were not included in the initial count. Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling said those ballots were scanned onto a card, but those votes were never uploaded into the initial count. He says there were several backups designed to catch this issue and that it falls to workers who didn’t follow procedure.
Of the votes that are now being added to the total, 1,577 were for President Donald Trump, 1,128 for Joe Biden and the rest were for Jo Jorgenson or write-ins. That changes the margin in the state by under 500 votes. with Biden now leading Trump by 12,929 votes.
So again this begs the question why didn’t they automatically catch this? As we noted yesterday, Georgia apparently records how many come in and then they check that ultimately against the number of votes tabulated to make sure they got them all.
Once, one might argue is an accident. Twice is indicative of a problem. So how many counties does this involve? And in Floyd County, the Floyd County GOP Chair blamed it on the Dominion system. “It appears that our elections office did not misplace any ballots, rather it appears as if this is a computer software mishap with the Dominion system.” But his remarks did not get picked up by most of the reports on the case. It’s not clear what he thought the issue was.
In Georgia on Election Day, there was a breakdown of the system when they reportedly tried to upload an update and in Michigan in Antrim County, there was allegedly a transposition of votes from Trump to Joe Biden when the election official failed to do an “update.”
This is two of these in the past 24 hours. It's time for a full, real audit of the Georgia ballots where they CHECK THE SIGNATURES, not the sham being conducted by Raffensperger. https://t.co/hmYLGd60hj
