Georgia Election Integrity Expert Confounds Bar Attorney in Disbarment Trial of Trump’s Former Attorney John Eastman

The fifth week of the disbarment trial of former President Donald Trump’s former attorney and constitutional legal scholar, John Eastman, ended on Friday, featuring more testimony by Garland Favorito, co-founder of Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA). Favorito, a retired IT professional with extensive experience with electronic voting machines and investigating election fraud in Georgia, underwent cross-examination by State Bar of California attorney Duncan Carling, frequently thwarting his questions.

Favorito discussed how his VoterGA organization identified counterfeit ballots. He said they found mail-in ballots in Fulton County that weren’t folded even though they must be mailed to voters, were filled out electronically instead of with a regular pen, did not have the correct paper stock, and dozens of ballots in a row were voted the same way. His team filed a lawsuit, but the judge said they didn’t have standing to proceed. Fulton County hired criminal defense attorneys after he filed his complaint. He said it was strange the judge didn’t rule that they didn’t have standing until a couple of months into it. He said his team “can’t prove something if denied a right unjustly by a judge.” He said the Georgia Supreme Court finally reversed the lower court, ruling unanimously that VoterGA had standing.

It came out during Favorito’s testimony that his election integrity team challenged thousands of problematic voter registrations in Gwinnett County, but due to activists outside the state interfering and threatening the election boards looking into it, the officials stopped investigating.

Carling spent much of the day asking Favorito about the same things he asked him about on Thursday. Favorito frequently declined to answer, stating that since Roland will not designate him as an expert, he is not allowed to provide his opinion, only testify about his knowledge. He repeatedly responded to Carling’s questions, “He’s asking me expert questions, and I’m not qualified as an expert.”
