The fifth week of the disbarment trial of former President Donald Trump’s former attorney and constitutional legal scholar, John Eastman, is winding down with direct and cross-examination of Garland Favorito, co-founder of Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA), who has extensive experience with electronic voting machines and investigating election fraud in Georgia. The State Bar of Georgia is trying to prove that Eastman gave Trump advice when he suggested that one option after the 2020 presidential election would be to have Vice President Mike Pence refuse to accept electoral slates from states suspected of election fraud or delay the certification.
Favorito (pictured above) testified all day on Wednesday and Thursday. Much of his testimony is being excluded due to the California bar prosecutor Duncan Carling and California Bar Disciplinary Judge Yvette Roland frequently objecting after he speaks. On Thursday, Favorito said his election integrity team discovered that all Fulton County ballot images of mail-in ballots (voting in person doesn’t generate a ballot image since a machine marks those ballots) from the 2020 election totaling 148,000 were routed to be adjudicated in the adjudication suspense folder. He said only ballots where the voters’ intent was questionable due to how they marked the ballot were supposed to be routed there, not all of them.
He continued discussing parts of his report titled “Refutation of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s False Election Claims,” which his team prepared for the Georgia Legislature about the 2020 election. Eastman’s attorney, Randy Miller, asked him about his findings that underage people registered to vote since the Georgia Secretary of State (GASOS) claimed only four of them had voted. Favorito found that 2,047 people registered to vote before they turned 17, and he didn’t address whether they had voted or not.
Next, Favorito discussed his findings that votes were cast for individuals who have “false voter registration dates.” He said, “You don’t have this due to clerical errors. This is electronic tampering.” His team found that there were “4,502 registration numbers in the voter history file, which lists voters who were credited with voting in the November 2020 election, who did not appear in the voter registration file, which lists voters who are eligible to vote in the election.”
