(Natural News) In the Georgia recount, Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger decided that signature matching on ballots was unnecessary, which resulted in the same fraudulent results as the first time the ballots were counted. Because of this, President Donald Trump is now calling on Gov. Brian Kemp to invoke his emergency powers and force the state to recount the ballots the correct way.
In a tweet, Trump wrote that the “hapless” Kemp needs to utilize these emergency powers, “which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes.”
“It will be a ‘goldmine’ of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state,” Trump added.
Earlier in the month, Raffensperger announced that it would somehow not be possible to match the signature on the outer ballot envelope with the absentee ballot itself because the ballots are supposedly separated from the envelopes in order to protect the “privacy” of voters.
This laughable excuse is not good enough for Team Trump, however, which insists that failing to match the signatures is a recipe for election fraud – and this is exactly what is now taking place in Georgia.
According to Trump, there should also be no problem with “quickly check[ing] the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots.”
“You may just find that there are many more ballots than there are envelopes,” Trump added, noting that this additional check would be “[s]o simple, and so easy to do.”

Kemp’s office says additional ballot checks are illegal interference
Responding to Trump’s tweet, a spokesperson from Kemp’s office reportedly told Newsweek that Georgia law “prohibits the Governor from interfering in elections,” the suggestion being that efforts to preserve election integrity would constitute “interference.”
“The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order,” the spokesperson added.
Interestingly, Democrats accused Kemp, then Georgia’s secretary of state, of interfering with the state’s election back in 2018 when he was elected to the position of state governor.
The spokesperson added that Kemp will “continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps – including a sample audit of signatures – to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised.”
Earlier in the month, Kemp urged Raffensperger to audit the signatures on ballots, though this did not end up happening as requested. Kemp specifically stated that signatures on ballots needed to match signatures on ballot envelopes, though, again, this did not happen.
“It seems simple enough to conduct a sample audit of signatures on the absentee ballot envelopes and compare those to the signatures on applications and on file at the secretary of state’s office,” Kemp stated at that time.
During the same news conference, however, Kemp announced that he had already certified the state’s election results for Biden, who supposedly beat Trump by a mere 12,000 votes.
Later on Nov. 29, Trump indicated during an interview on Fox News that he regrets ever endorsing Kemp for governor in his 2018 race against Democrat Stacey Abrams.
As for Raffensperger, who is supposedly a Republican, he contends that election workers did everything they were supposed to do the first time around to signature match ballots to the envelopes. Those ballots have since been separate from said envelopes, though the Dominion Voting Systems that tabulated them have become the subject of a temporary restraining order that prohibits election officials from wiping or altering them in any way.
