Election Tampering?

•, Jimmy Brown

Well over a year since President Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election, plenty of questions still remain in the minds of many. Two states are moving to answer some of those questions as soon as possible.

The Washington Times reported Tuesday that officials in Georgia and Wisconsin are moving forward with probes into alleged malpractice regarding ballots in the 2020 election.

In Georgia, officials are investigating accusations of ballot harvesting. The practice involves a third party collecting a voter's ballot and submitting it, most often via a drop box.

Georgia law states that ballots can be submitted only by a voter or a close relative. However, at least one anonymous witness said he was paid $10 per ballot to collect and deposit them to various drop boxes.

Election officials have authorized a subpoena in an attempt to speak with the witness, the Times reported. If the allegations are true, this would represent a clear violation of Georgia law.

"On day one at the Secretary of State's office, I fought to outlaw ballot harvesting in Georgia and continue to advocate for a national prohibition," Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said, according to the outlet.
