Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), demanded that Georgia’s secretary of state conduct a full manual recount of all votes after several irregularities reports on Election Day, Breitbart reported.
Collins was appointed last week by President Trump to lead the legal effort against allegations of voter fraud in the state.
Irregularities plague the elections in the state of Georgia.
First, the vote count was halted for four hours allegedly because of an exploding pipeline in the area.
By then, President Trump was leading the Democrat by almost 300,000 votes.
President Trump complained about this incident in his Nov. 5 statement, “In Georgia, a pipe burst in a faraway location, totally unrelated to the location of what was happening, and they stopped counting for four hours, and a lot of things happened. The election apparatus in Georgia is run by Democrats.”
Then, the Republican poll watchers were sent home by election authorities because the count was to continue the next day; however, they continued to count the votes in the absence of the poll watchers because the number of votes for Biden was up by the next day.
“Likewise, in Georgia, I won by a lot—a lot—with a lead of over—getting close to 300,000 votes on Election Night in Georgia. And, by the way, got whittled down, and now it’s getting to a point where I’ll go from winning by a lot to perhaps being even down a little bit,” the president said.
Amid calls for the resignation of Georgia’s secretary of state for his mishandling of the election, Collins said he would ask the state secretary for three things, “First, there must be a full comparison of absentee ballots cast and in-person and provisional ballots cast throughout the state.
Second, there must be a check for felons and other ineligible persons who may have cast a ballot,” Collins said.
Thirdly, Collins demanded that the secretary of state announce a full hand recount of all votes to clarify any doubts about irregularities.

"We can & will petition for this in court after statewide certification is completed if the SoS fails to act, but we are hopeful he will preemptively take this action today to ensure every Georgian has confidence in our electoral process." pic.twitter.com/Zc2GYvOiM0

It is precisely because of the lack of transparency in these states where Trump is challenging the results that the presidential election cannot yet declare a genuine winner.
