Georgia election officials to give update on hand recount of ballots cast in presidential race

ATLANTA (NewsNation Now) — A Georgia election official said Tuesday morning that the hand tally of ballots cast in the presidential race would be complete by Wednesday evening.

“We feel like we’re on a good path,” said Gabriel Sterling with Georgia’s Secretary of State Office. “The audit is on pace.”

Sterling said the by-hand recount is so the state can move to certify its election results. Once certified, the losing campaign can request a recount, which would be done using scanners that read and tally the votes. The AP has not declared a winner in Georgia, where Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 0.3 percentage points.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger did not attend Tuesday morning’s news conference. Trump and his allies have criticized Raffensperger, saying that mismanagement and fraud tainted the state’s presidential election.

Over the weekend, Trump posted on social

Machine recount of presidential race gets under way in Georgia; requested by Trump – News – Athens Banner-Herald

ATLANTA — County election workers across Georgia on Tuesday began a machine recount of the roughly 5 million votes cast in the presidential race in the state, just days after completing a hand tally that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s lead.

The recount was requested by President Donald Trump after certified results showed him losing the state to Democrat Joe Biden by 12,670 votes, or 0.25%. Under state law, the losing candidate can request a recount when the margin is less than 0.5%. Trump’s campaign on Saturday formally requested the recount.

Counties were allowed to begin the machine recount at 9 a.m. Tuesday and they have until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 2 to wrap it up.

Some counties only planned to get as far as testing the equipment Tuesday, with the actual counting to begin Wednesday. With

Google must disclose emails in Russian oligarch’s divorce

Google was ordered by a US judge to turn over the content of emails of the son of Farkhad Akhmedov to the Russian oligarch’s former wife in her pursuit of a £450mil (RM2.45bil) divorce judgment.

The skirmish over the email accounts is part of one of London’s largest divorce fights – involving a super yacht in Dubai and litigation funder Burford Capital Ltd – which landed before a judge in San Jose, California, in the federal court closest to Google’s Mountain View headquarters 14 miles away.

Tatiana Akhmedova alleges that her former husband transferred assets to their son Temur to avoid paying a London court’s judgment that she says remains “almost entirely unsatisfied”.

In a dispute that tugs at the boundaries of US privacy law, Magistrate Judge Virginia M. DeMarchi said she was inclined to comply with the London court’s ruling allowing Akhmedova to seek her son’s emails from Google.

Trump supporters want law and order | Letters



GUEST VIEW icon

Well, I am not a letter writer but I guess it has at last come to pass, as I am sick and tired of reading and listening to the BS I and other normal citizens are constantly bombarded without responding as in his latest Nov. 18 opinion piece, “Racist appeals from Trump powered white evangelical tsunami.” The fake news factories like Milbank’s Washington Post are like street bullies — they keep calling you dirty names until you are finally goaded into responding.

So just where does Dana Milbank, a big city guy, get off calling us white Christians racists and worse just because we voted for Trump? I’ve got news for this pen-pusher, I voted in the election before this for Obama! So don’t be calling me a racist. Or Trump either — he had many voters for him from every color. Look at Florida, for example. it’s just BS.
