Claims by the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and tried to stage a coup related to The Big Lie – a claim that says Donald Trump actually won the 2020 presidential election but it was stolen from him by Joe Biden, Democrats, Republican secretaries of state, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, election volunteers, election officials, a vote tabulating machine company, Italy, and the long-dead former president of Venezuela – have led to multiple investigations, most pointedly in the state of Georgia.
A fake elector scheme, in which people posed as electors in contested battleground states who were authorized to sign off on documents casting the states’ votes for Donald Trump despite his loss there, were exposed a few months following the election. In Georgia, where DA Fani Willis is investigating Trump and his allies’ attempts to illegally ” influence” the outcome of the election, one of these fake electors has been shown on video to have escorted in pro-Trump operatives, where they breached a voting system.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident in which Cathy Latham, the former GOP chairwoman of Coffee County, Georgia, allowed Scott Hall and Paul Maggio into the county elections office on January 7, 2021, the day voting systems in the office were breached. Hall and Maggio have admitted to having gained access to the voting machines, which they were asked to do by disgraced former Trump attorney Sydney Powell.
According to CNN:
‘Text messages, emails and witness testimony filed as part of a long-running civil suit into the security of Georgia’s voting systems show Latham communicated directly with the then-Coffee County elections supervisor about getting access to the office, both before and after the breach. One text message, according to the court document, shows Latham coordinating the arrival and whereabouts of a team “led by Paul Maggio” that traveled to Coffee County at the direction of Powell.’
Latham previously denied any knowledge of Hall’s intentions in the Coffee County elections office, but text messages showed she was quite aware of what was happening. When confronted with the text messages, Latham asserted her Fifth Amendment privileges.
Twitter was unsurprised to find out that Trump supporting election officials committed alleged criminal acts to sway the vote count, but called for stiff penalties for the crime. Read some of their comments below:
