State officials are investigating after equipment was taken from a Cobb County precinct manager’s vehicle. Cobb County Elections Director Janine Eveler said the stolen machines cannot be used to fraudulently vote in Tuesday’s election. The four so-called ExpressPoll machines were the computers poll workers used to check-in voters, and check those off who cast ballots.
According to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the equipment was stolen on Saturday evening while the vehicle was parked at the Kroger on Canton Road. Kemp's office says Cobb County Elections waited two days to tell his office about the theft of the machines. The four so-called ExpressPoll machines were the computers poll workers used to check-in voters, and check those off who cast ballots. Kemp released the following statement Monday afternoon:
"It is unacceptable that the Cobb County Elections Office waited two days to notify my office of this theft.
We have opened an investigation, and we are taking steps to ensure that it has no effect on the election tomorrow. I am confident that the results will not be compromised."
Given the intense focus of the Left in using this special election as proxy for America's dissent against President Trump (having given up on their "Russians did it" narrative in recent weeks), one wonders just why (and who) these machines would be stolen?
“It’s very shocking, especially with the climate we have of voter fraud out there,” one Georgia voter told Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt.
Of course, as we noted earlier, an equally important question raised by the interview below is, since when does a newbie candidate running in a tiny Georgia congressional district, that will have no impact of the Republican majority in the House, get national airtime on CNN?
