Trump And GOP Sue GA County Over Absentee Ballots

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

The Georgia Republican Party and President Donald Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit late Wednesday alleging that Chatham County is improperly counting absentee ballots received after the state’s deadline.

The petition, filed in Chatham County Superior Court, was the third filed by the Trump campaign, all in states with close races where ballots were still being counted late Wednesday. In Georgia, Trump held a small lead over Democratic candidate Joe Biden as tens of thousands of absentee ballots remained to be counted in metro Atlanta and Savannah.

The Georgia suit addresses how absentee ballots were stored and states that ballots received after 7 p.m. Tuesday should not be counted. A poll watcher claims he saw a poll worker handling ballots incorrectly.

Chatham County, population 280,000, includes Savannah.
