Georgia has a constitutional issue to resolve with its discrepencies in voter identification in person versus absentee ballots, according to Rep. Rick Allen, R-Ga., on Newsmax TV.
"If you go and vote in person, there's a different standard, and you have equal protection under the law, so why wouldn't the standard for absentee ballots be the same as if you showed up and went to vote in person?" Allen, who won reelection in Georgia's 12th district with over 58% of the vote, told Wednesday's "Stinchfield."
The ballot recount is failing to address the difference in Georgia's rules with in-person voter I.D. and sketchy signature verfication on absentee ballots, Allen told host Grant Stinchfield.
"I don't believe it's legitimate, no," Allen said, noting his Georgia delegation has sent a letter to the Justice Department to investigate Georgia's vote counting, ballot recounting and signature verification process on absentee ballots.
Allen added Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is suspect, too.
"He's been defending his position, and he has been defending the equipment, which is questionable; he's defending how the votes were counted," Allen said.
