    Weird, it's showing up for me now. I refreshed like 5 times and reclicked the link twice before I posted that, but maybe it was just glitchy on my end. Carry on!

    Possibly, but very low amount of people is loyal to the GOP anymore, it's just Trump. You have the mormons, and the cubans who are GOP and basically everyone else are full on Trumpsters. And there will be plenty of influential personalities that'll stick with trump for years, fighting against any credibility to any who might work with Biden or any dem in the future, which only further disenfrachises. Civil war in the GOP(not the kind where the kill each other, just argue against each other on social media and target each other for attacks and slander) is coming, because I don't think anymore that Trump is gonna be actually banned from twitter, and he is spiteful. he will attack the hell out of his enemies both GOP and DNC, but it'll only disenfranchise GOP voters because only his followers believe anything he says.

    GA recount is over. Biden won. Trump slimmed the margin by like 1800 votes. Certification incoming in the next few days.

    Wait, it flipped 1800 votes? Isn't that like the highest number flipped ever in a recount?
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    At least 800 of that is due to that one stash of 2600 ballots they found. I think I read that there was another, smaller incident but honestly I've been reading so much shit going on the past two weeks I can't remember it clearly.

    it very well might be. They did find several thousand votes that weren't counted during the initial count that gave more to trump overall. but 1800 only means Biden won by over 12k instead of 14k.

    Golly how did Trump win in 2016 with all of this corruption going on.

    And, I guess republicans are concerned about foreign interference in our elections now? Guess you should have passed that election security bill.

    Understood, just seemed weird that it would flip that much.

He basically did a hostile takeover of the entire GOP over the last half decade, now let him burn the entire party down.
    Agreed. Hopefully many of Trump's voters will feel the whole thing is a "fraud" and sit home in January. And there is already talk that Donnie Jr and his girlfriend are seeking high end positions within the party.

    I think it was actually closer to 1200 than 1800. That's still much larger than is good, but nowhere near enough to change the results.

    Several other counties found memory cards with votes that hadn’t been uploaded and counted prior to the audit.

    Going into the hand tally, Biden led Trump by a margin of about 14,000 votes. The previously uncounted ballots discovered during the hand count will reduce that margin to about 12,800, Sterling said.
    Looks like a difference of about 1,200, not 1,800, but maybe beanman has a different/better source. And it also does look like they were ballots not counted in the initial count. So not really normal for a recount.

    yeah there were 4 counties altogether that didn't have ballots counted due to human error.

    The world we live in now we have half the country living in an alternate version of reality considering how good republicans are at white washing their own history I would not so readily discount it.
    I've heard Biden say nothing of pardoning or dismissing anything Trump has done. Plenty of other legal bodies are waiting for Trump to exit the white house.

    Well knowing Trump he would want his to be the biggest and most expensive considering his inability to get anything built it would be just a scheme for him to steal money from suckers I mean donors which is very apropos monument to his presidency.
    Precisely. He'll promise the bigliest, most beautiful library anyone ever saw, go on a "fundraiser" to get funds for it, fleece money from his supporters, then vastly-under deliver on some poorly constructed eyesore and pocket the rest of the funds.

    Clownie clerks fucked up and misplaced a couple thousand votes that hadn't been counted. 3/4 from republican counties... go figure.

    I got to say its got a ring to it. I picture someone hitting a red button and "intentional Soros Venezuela fraud" starts flashing on the screen. You could really use it for anything.
