Raffensperger: Georgia Certified Election Because 'Numbers Don't Lie'

Source: Georgia Public Broadcasting

After a premature press release touting its completion, Georgia has now certified its election results, cementing President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Trump by 12,760 votes.

According to the official results, 5,026,684 total ballots were cast in the Nov. 3 contest, or 69% of the state's 7.2 million active voters. At 5 p.m. Gov. Kemp is set to give a speech on the next steps in the electoral process.

Earlier Friday morning, before signing off on 159 counties' worth of documents, a weary Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger delivered a short but emphatic speech reminding Georgia that "numbers don't lie" when it comes to who won.

The Republican has faced calls to resign, death threats and the attention of the nation over the last two-and-a-half weeks of post-election counting. While he is a supporter of President Donald Trump who wished the president would have won the electoral college and Georgia's 16 votes, it is not his job to alter the outcome, he said.

1. SoS Raffensperger deserves credit

Sounds like an old-time principled Republican committed to rule of law. Don't know if he was involved in Kemp's election, but today, on this issue, he stood tall.
