A new lawsuit requesting a new election to be held in GA

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.

The Colorado-based Coalition for Good Governance and six Georgia voters (that's right - six) filed a lawsuit calling for the results to be thrown out and a new election ordered. Handel was declared the victor with 52 percent of the vote to Ossoff's 48.

This latest lawsuit calls for a review of the state's election system and a redo of the 6th District balloting, even though Handel has already been sworn into office.

The new lawsuit comes weeks after the publication of a classified National Security Agency report describing a sophisticated scheme, allegedly by Russian military intelligence, to infiltrate local USA elections systems using phishing emails. And there's nothing "fake" about the revelation that a security breach left some 6.7 million (and perhaps more) Georgia voter records exposed for months.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said that the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp is reviewing the lawsuit.

"The prevailing plot line is that states like Georgia can't provide suitable security for elections", he continued. A spokesperson for the Secretary of State said they have not received the lawsuit yet. She says the group does election integrity work in multiple states.
