Georgia Floyd County 2600 ballot discrepancy blame game, Gabriel Sterling blames workers “human error”, Tom Rees “problem with one of the vote scanners”
“We discovered that these systems are subject to different types of unauthorized manipulation and potential fraud,” “There is a reason that Texas rejected it,”...Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
“Trump’s not gonna win. I made f*cking sure of that!”...Eric Coomer, executive with Dominion Voting Systems
“It’s Massive, Criminal Voter Fraud! – It’s Going to Blow the Mind of Everyone In This Country!”...Attorney Sidney Powell on Dominion Voting Systems
All errors are human errors.
That includes the humans who design, create and implement computer systems as well as those who use them.
All organization problems are management problems.
The State of Georgia purchased the Dominion Voting Systems election system in 2019.
That sounds like a Management problem.
Is that why they are trying to put the blame on Floyd County poll workers?
From CBS 46.
“On Monday evening Georgia Secretary of State’s Office election official Gabriel Sterling announced 2,600 ballots were not counted during the 2020 election.
In a virtual press conference Sterling said the Floyd County ballots were not scanned properly. “It’ll change the margin by around 800 votes,” said Sterling. He called the issue a “human error.” ”
“Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting system implementation manager, told reporters during a virtual news conference on Monday that the blunder in Floyd County was the only such incident of its kind discovered during the statewide audit thus far.
“It looks like it was half of an early vote box, essentially, that did not get uploaded into their election night recording system,” Sterling said. “It’s unfortunate, but it’s not an equipment issue–it’s a person not executing their job properly.”
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has called upon the Floyd County elections director to step down in light of the discovery, Sterling said. “This was too important of an issue to be allowed to happen this way,” Sterling said.
The addition of those previously untallied ballots resulted in an approximately 800-vote gain for President Donald Trump in Georgia, Sterling said. That gain alone will not be enough for Trump to overtake President-elect Joe Biden, who led Trump by approximately 14,000 votes in the state before the unscanned Floyd County votes were discovered.
Sterling said an elections investigator has been sent to Floyd County to determine how the mishap occurred.
“They had these ballots in their ballot manifests,” Sterling said of Floyd County. “They had them there, and they were counted in the audit. When they finished the audit, they had, like, 41,000 votes. On the election night reporting, they only had 38,000 votes. And that’s how it was discovered.”
Tom Rees, the chairman of Floyd County’s Board of Elections, told Newsweek that county election officials scanned all ballots during the initial vote count.
“Our audit total completed Saturday did show an increase of about 2,600 more ballots than what was reported on election night,” Rees told Newsweek. “We did scan everything on Election Day so these are not extra ballots.
“We are working with a Dominion rep to try to find out what caused this discrepancy,” Rees said, referring to the company that operates voting machines used in Georgia and in 27 other states across the country. “We have narrowed it down to one early voting location where we did have a problem with one of the vote scanners. We will go at it again tomorrow and hopefully find where the problem is.”
Sterling said state election officials were “perturbed” when they learned of the uncounted ballots. “There is no good explanation as to why you wouldn’t upload those numbers, other than just gross incompetence,” he said.”
It seems to me that the gross incompetence was the State Of Georgia purchasing Dominion Voting Systems just a few months after Texas tested it for the third time and rejected it.
