The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Republican Party of Georgia against the state of Georgia with accusations of officials counting votes that were received after polls closed, according to Fox News.
Deputy Campaign Manager Justin Clark revealed in a statement, “We will not allow Democrat election officials to steal this election from President Trump with late, illegal ballots.”
A few minutes ago in Chatham County, our observers watched an unidentifiable woman mix over 50 ballots into the stack of uncounted absentee ballots.

“President Trump and the Georgia Republican Party have filed suit to require all Georgia counties to separate any and all late-arriving ballots from all legally cast ballots to ensure a free, fair election in which only legal, valid ballots count.”
“If he was observing something in our absentee center, there is a control on everything that moves through that building.”
“There’s a log of every ballot that’s going in there and a log of every ballot that’s processed,” Chatham County Elections Supervisor Russell Bridges said.
“If somebody was mixing something or moving something, it was already recorded and accounted for.”
From Fox News:
The Georgia lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of Chatham County, a population center that includes Savannah. As of early Thursday Biden was winning the county by a 16-point margin over Trump.
The lawsuit asks a judge to make sure county officials are keeping track of all late-arriving mail-in ballots — but not counting them, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The filing includes an affidavit in which a registered poll worker claims he saw at least 53 late ballots mixed in with others, according to The Hill.
