Democrats make up the definition for sore loser and it’s really sad how they continue to prove this.
In light of Republican Karen Handel winning Georgia’s special election a Colorado based nonprofit known as Coalition for Good Governance is suing. This loss comes as a huge blow to the Democratic Party especially considering the 22.5 million spent campaigning. Naturally they plan to throw a fit rather than accepting the loss.
A Colorado non-profit filed a lawsuit on Monday seeking to void the result of last month’s special election in Georgia, won by Republican candidate Karen Handel against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff in the most expensive congressional race in history.
The lawsuit, filed in Fulton County Superior Court by the Colorado-based Coalition for Good Governance (CGG) and a number of their members from Georgia, alleges that Georgia’s touchscreen voting system had severe security faults and that election officials repeatedly ignored warnings that it was compromised.
“We aren’t questioning one candidate over another,” lead plaintiff Donna Curling told Colorado Politics. “We’re saying it’s impossible to know.”
“We are in a completely different environment of cybersecurity threats than when this equipment was purchased 15 years ago,” said Marilyn Marks, executive director of the Coalition for Good Governance.
In June, a judge dismissed a similar lawsuit demanding that paper ballots be used in the special election, on the basis that early voting had already started.
The final result, in which Handel defeated Ossoff by 3.6 percentage points, proved another serious setback for the Democratic Party, who spent a record $22.5 million on the race.
