A lot of things happen as we sleep. In fact that has happened so much so that the phrase "don't get caught sleeping" has never more appropriate as it is in this current social and political climate. As a result, our "While you were sleeping blogs" will attempt to spotlight and share some important events that may have happened late at night, in the midst of other higher profile events that got more attention or for whatever reason got buried, while we were not really paying attention.
Here is something that you may have missed....While you were sleeping!
ATLANTA (AP) — A judge who last month ordered absentee ballots in Georgia’s most populous county to be unsealed as part of a lawsuit alleging fraud during the November election is now set to hear arguments over whether the case should be dismissed.
Originally filed in December, the lawsuit says there is evidence of fraudulent ballots and improper ballot counting in Fulton County. As part of the suit, the nine Georgia voters who filed it are seeking to inspect some 147,000 absentee ballots to determine whether there are illegitimate ballots among them.
Garland Favorito, a longtime critic of Georgia’s election systems who has promoted conspiracy theories about the 9/11 terror attacks and about former President Bill Clinton, is spearheading the Georgia lawsuit.
The judge had originally scheduled a meeting for May 28 with the parties to sort out the logistics of how that review and scanning of paper ballots would proceed. But before that meeting happened, Fulton County, the county election board and the county courts clerk all filed motions asking the judge to dismiss the lawsuit. The judge canceled the logistics meeting, saying those motions needed to be dealt with first and scheduled Monday’s hearing.
