Georgia’s speaker of the House has called for an “independent investigation” into the 2020 presidential election in Fulton County.
Speaker David Ralston made the demand in a Thursday letter to Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron in which he called for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to get involved to “determine if any irregularities or willful fraud occurred.”
"Recently, media reports have surfaced which call into question the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election," Ralston wrote. "Given the seriousness of this situation and the possible repercussions for our state and nation, it is time we have an independent investigation – once and for all – of the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election."
President Joe Biden won the state by roughly 12,000 votes approximately eight months ago, a tally affirmed in multiple recounts and certified by the state, however, former President Donald Trump and his allies insist there was widespread election fraud in the Peach State, among others, as well.
