Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp called for a signature audit after video footage allegedly showed Fulton County poll workers counting ballots without monitors.
A private security firm inside provided the surveillance video to President Donald Trump’s lawyers on Thursday.
Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis responded to the Kemp interview on Twitter, “@TrumpTeam requested signature verification FIVE TIMES.”
“The same person that stayed behind,” Attorney Jacki Pick said. “The person that cleared the place out under the pretense that we are going to stop counting is the person who put the table there at 8:22 in the morning. I saw four suitcases come out from underneath the table.”
Kemp called for the signature audit on Thursday during an interview on the Fox News show, “The Ingraham Angle.”
“I think it should be done,” he said. “I think especially (given) what we saw today … it raises more questions. “In the next 24 hours, hopefully we will see a lot more.”
Trump criticized Kemp for doing nothing to help him in the state. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. The governor’s done nothing,” said Trump on Fox News. “He’s done absolutely nothing. I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look at what’s going on. It’s so terrible.”
If legislators find the election was fraudulent, they could determine who will receive the state’s Electoral College votes.
However, Kemp refused on Dec. 5 to call a special session of the Georgia Legislature to overturn the November election results.
