EYE ON Georgia: Precedent Setting Election Integrity Trial Will Happen
Georgia justice is coming to a head.
In case you haven't heard, Federal Ninth District Court Judge Amy Totenberg has granted a non-jury trial in the Curling v. Raffensperger case, which brings forward the inconsistencies and irregularities of the electronic voting system ... AKA the Dominion Voting System.
This massive victory for a little-known court case can set a crucial precedent for real election reformation, starting with the significant presidential race in Nov 2024.
"This lawsuit was filed in 2017 by several individual voters and the Coalition for Good Governance, which advocates for election security and integrity, against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and members of the State Election Board. It claims that the current configuration of the state's election system presents a threat to voters' right to have their votes counted as cast. It spawned an expert report that identified vulnerabilities in the election system used in Georgia that led a federal cybersecurity agency to issue an advisory to jurisdictions that use the equipment and has prompted some Georgia Republicans to call for abandoning the machines. It also led to the exposure of a breach of election equipment in a rural south Georgia county." ~ CitizenWatchReport
This writer's note:
I find it interesting the court system is bringing back cases such as this one from 6 years ago, which has been shoved by the side and almost forgotten until now. Hundreds of cases like this one at all levels of government dispute the lack of voter protection provided by an illegitimate election system. As more cases like this surface, a once complacent public is waking up to the need to implement an election system that eliminates the possibility of cheating in all elections. A true constitutional republic cannot survive if the people do nothing. We the People must rise, take a stand, and make the changes we seek.
Wow! Judge Amy Totenberg declared the electronic voting machines used by the State of Georgia have substantial flaws.— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 16, 2023
Georgia must get rid of our machines and go to paper ballots before the 2024 election! https://t.co/mmV8Z4FgAc
Marjorie Taylor Greene, who represents GA interests well in the House of Representatives, and Georgia elections expert Garland Favorito from VoterGA have been rallying for Georgia voters' interests for years.
"Garland says this latest ruling is very promising and that he looks forward to the January trial. Garland contends the new voter system violates Georgia law. Garland also believes the court is likely to get rid of the ballot marking devices or touch screens. He added this is a good step in the right direction and that this is long overdue." ~ TrendingPolitics
Judge Amy Totenberg handed down the decision on Friday, Nov 10, 2023, and the news quietly faded into the sunset as corporate media barely reported on it. Social media has been abuzz with the news since Monday, Nov 13, as people begin to sort out what it implies.
Here is a breakdown of the Judges decision:
- Judge Amy Totenberg has issued a decision concurring there is sufficient reason to believe that the electronic voting machines used by the State of Georgia have substantial flaws.
- The District Court Judge found sufficient cause to believe that there may be "cybersecurity deficiencies that unconstitutionally burden Plaintiffs' First and Fourteenth Amendment rights and capacity to case effective votes that are accurately counted."
- Totenberg scheduled a bench trial for January 9, 2024, which entails the absence of a jury. Nevertheless, she acknowledged that a compromise might be possible if the state legislature acted.
- The court denied that criticism of security flaws with Georgia's voting machines are based purely on "conspiracy theories." with this note: "The Court notes that the record evidence does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety. Indeed, some of the nation's leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists have provided testimony and affidavits on behalf of Plaintiffs' case in the long course of this litigation," the judge's footnote remarked. ~ TrendingPolitics

Although this judicial move is quite a giant step for voters' rights in Georgia and ultimately all states, The Gateway Pundit suggests a bit of controversy is swirling about Judge Amy Totenberg's decision:
"For years, unscrupulous Obama Judge Amy Totenberg sealed and covered up the results of the Halderman Report on voting machine issues and discrepancies in Georgia. The report was finally released in June 2023, and the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia unsealed the 96-page Halderman Report – the Security Analysis of Georgia's ImageCast X Ballot Marking Devices. Trump-hating Georgia 'Republican" Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was also hiding this report from the public for two years. He hid it from the Georgia voters. He has never been held accountable for this. Far-left Judge Amy Totenberg sealed and covered up the results of the investigation of Dominion voting machines in Georgia and sat on the report after the 2020 election. It was finally released in June of 2023! The Halderman report confirmed that votes can be altered in the Dominion voting machines. In fact, the report reveals that the Dominion software is vulnerable and can be hacked." ~ TheGatewayPundit
This is one election integrity case to keep close EYE ON.
