[Ed. – Another battle that seems destined to rage on for years.]
The Georgia Republican party has passed a resolution to censure Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger.
The party is meeting for their annual convention on Jekyll Island this weekend, where the divide over former president Donald Trump’s role in the future of the GOP was evident.
Trump notoriously disputed the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, falsely claiming that he lost because of voter fraud.
In the months after the election, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Raffensperger repeatedly defended the state’s election process and said there was no evidence of voter fraud in the state. Several audits were performed that did not change the election results in Georgia. The secretary of state has stood by his office and said they followed the state’s election laws. Investigators found there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, machine or election management problems.
