THAT WAS FAST: Non-Profit Group Sues To Overturn Results Of Georgia Special Election

Democrats thought they had the special election in Georgia all wrapped up but the Republican candidate Karen Handel won instead. Now an out of state non-profit group is demanding that the election results be overturned.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Georgia voters, Colorado nonprofit sue to overturn special election results in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District

A group of Georgia voters and a Colorado-based watchdog organization filed a lawsuit late Monday asking a judge to overturn the results of last month’s 6th Congressional District special election and scrap the state’s voting system, Colorado Politics has learned.

The complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, alleges that state and local election officials ignored warnings for months that Georgia’s centralized election system — already known for potential security flaws and lacking a paper trail to verify results — had been compromised and left unprotected from intruders since at least last summer, casting doubt on Republican Karen Handel’s 3.8-point win over Democrat Jon Ossoff in the most expensive House race in the nation’s history…

The plaintiffs — including Colorado nonprofit Coalition for Good Governance and Georgia voters from both major political parties and a conservative third party — charge that recent revelations about a security hole on a computer server used to run Georgia elections only amplified longstanding concerns about the state’s antiquated voting equipment and its susceptibility to hackers.

Of course. Hackers. It’s always hackers who make Democrats lose elections.
