Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has just announced that Joe Biden has won what passes for an election in Georgia under Raffensperger’s supervision by some 12,000 votes.

The Trump campaign has until Tuesday to request yet another recount. I’ll leave it to brighter folks than me to explain how that process could play out as the vote would have been certified.

This moves the action to the desk of Governor Brian Kemp. Kemp has until 5 p.m. Saturday to accept or reject the certification. I can’t find an easy answer to what happens if the governor says the results of the election are bullsh**. But I sorta hope we find out.
