An RNC monitor who was observing the ballot recount in Georgia said an auditor was caught changing votes from Trump to Biden three times in three minutes.
“Now, that’s just while I’m standing there. So does the second checker catch it every time?” Hale Soucie, the monitor asked a Project Veritas undercover reporter.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe sent a team of undercover journalists to the Georgia recount to record any suspicious activity.
It wasn’t long before one of his “insiders” came across some “irregularities.”
“This lady, three times in three minutes—from 2:09 to 2:12—she got three wrong,” Soucie told the Veritas reporter. “Does it get corrected the next time?” he fretted.
As usual, the “mistakes” all went one way.
Soucie said he had to leave that table to observe election workers at the next who were also behaving suspiciously. He said a counter was handing an auditor a ballot, and then the auditor accepted the vote for Biden without even bothering to check it.
“She’s not even looking at it, she’s putting it in,” Soucie said. “That person is supposed to be auditing it,” he explained.
Soucie said he reported the problem to the Cobb County election officials who told him they’d talk to the auditors.
After that, the auditor “got all cutesy,” Soucie noted, sarcastically putting the ballot up close to her face to examine the ballots when she knew he was watching.
He said when he started walking away, he saw her glaring at him.
“That’s when things started getting real shady—like really tense and crap,” Soucie told the Veritas reporter. He said that no matter where he was standing in the room, she and a couple of others would call their bosses and point at him.
“I haven’t touched anybody, haven’t talk to anybody,” the RNC monitor said defensively. “all I’m doing is writing down and observing and telling what happened.”
Soucie said that he observed several other election workers talking with the auditor and pointing at him. Then, while he was taking a stroll around the room, he said he heard the hostile auditor railing against him.
“I’m paid by the taxpayer and this f—king asshole is coming out and watching me,” she allegedly complained.
Soucie later explained why the situation concerned him. If votes aren’t being counted correctly and the auditors aren’t bothering to check those ballots, then “stuff could be sliding through,” he said.

Republicans have been very unhappy with how Georgia election officials are handling the recount.
Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Patriots, complained on Friday that the state was not allowing enough monitors to observe the process, and slammed it as “a fake recount.”
“Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is doing a tremendous disservice to the people of Georgia by conducting what can only be described as a ‘fraudit’ which fails to provide a complete examination of the election system, the voter rolls, and the eligibility of those who voted,” Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning said in a statement.
Last week, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Georgia), who’s leading Team Trump’s election integrity efforts in the state, and Georgia GOP Chairman David Shafer sent an itemized list their concerns in a letter to Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger.
