The Georgia GOP chairman, David Shafer, has appointed a team of individuals to draft legislation to fix the many issues of Georgia’s voting system. Former Georgia State Senator William Ligon is on this team.
Ligon, chaired the December 3rd and 30th subcommittee hearings detailing evidence of voter fraud in the November general election. He spoke recently to the Forsyth County Tea Party where he outlined the evidence in some detail and actions now under consideration by the state GOP that could eventually reform state election laws.
He cited the following two of the five grounds which form the legal basis for challenging an election. First, any misconduct, fraud, or irregularity which either changes the results of an election or places the result in doubt. Second, if illegal votes were counted or if legal votes were not counted. The evidence well supported that both grounds were met to allow challenge. He detailed many specific examples of evidence, affidavits, testimony, and analysis presented to the committee that could have proven these two bases for challenge and that all the evidence was essentially ignored. He also made clear that no substantive changes were made to the processes prior to the January US Senate runoff election.
While there are currently no known actions being taken to challenge either the November or January election results at the state level, there are actions to restore election integrity.
Mr. Ligon detailed eight election reform proposals that he stressed needed to be enacted now. Many of these "reforms" are currently required, but were either laxly enforced or were abused or violated outright.
1) Absentee ballots must be strictly limited.
2) Chain of custody must be rigorously maintained.
3) Pole watchers must be given full and meaningful access.
4) Voter rolls must be reviewed and corrected.
5) Crimes must be prosecuted.
6) Large private money donations must be eliminated, such as those given by Facebook's Zuckerberg, to certain Democrat controlled counties. Money that was unaccounted for as campaign donations or any other legal purpose.
7) Dominion voting systems must be scrapped.
8) "Settlement agreements" such as was signed between SoS Raffensperger and Stacie Abrams - which unlawfully changed signature verifications - must be prohibited.
Mr. Ligon claimed the legislature had no prior knowledge of this agreement. Mr. Ligon confirmed that county election officials are not answerable to anyone outside their county and felt that this also must be changed.
Mr. Ligon admitted that the U.S. Constitution was not obeyed in that the state legislature did not select the Electoral College electors. The Governor selected them, placing Stacie Abrams in the leadership position of the delegation.
Mr. Ligon was not able to identify any local, state, or federal authority that either could or would bring the evidence of crimes his committee uncovered to trial or the criminals to justice. The unstated conclusion was clear: no amount or type of law, if it is not ENFORCED and lawbreakers are not brought to justice, will ever restore election integrity.
WE THE PEOPLE were put in charge to be watch dogs of government. The Fayette Republican Party plans to enact policies and form committees to do just that. Please join us!
