Georgia election official – and noted Trump-basher – Gabriel Sterling issued a statement this afternoon announcing his official challenge to the voter registration of a woman who admitted to voting fraudulently using her address personal during the 2020 elections.
Sterling is the Voting System Implementation Officer for the State of Georgia. He discovered fraudulent voter registration when the Democratic voting organization Fair Fight Action sent a reminder to vote on his behalf to his home.
Fair Fight was founded by Stacey Abrams in 2018 to tackle the alleged suppression of voters in Georgia, including election security standards that many Democrats say are unnecessary and racist.
The woman in question, Meron Fissha, admitted to Fox 5 Atlanta that she voted using Sterling’s address in the 2020 election after selling the house to him more than two years ago.
Investigative reporter Patrick Howley joins Owen in the War Room to discuss various topics, including Mike Pence’s upcoming decision to save or surrender the United States.
Sterling’s challenge alleged that she moved to Maryland after selling the house in 2018, a state which, unlike Georgia, was not considered competitive in the 2020 presidential election.
Fissha told Fox 5 that she worked and lived legally in Atlanta, but requested that a mail-in ballot be sent to Maryland because she was staying there temporarily while caring for her brother who has a medical problem. She also said she plans to “update” her voting address.
According to Sterling, Fissha also voted fraudulently using her address in the 2018 election. He suggested in a series of tweets that Fissha may have committed multiple crimes by repeatedly voting under a bogus entry and signing an oath attesting to it. information she knew was incorrect.
The Fulton County Election Commission voted 4-1 to accept that his filed challenge meet the probable cause standard.
Sterling admitted it was “super ironic” for him to file an official voter fraud challenge after spending weeks bashing President Trump over allegations of widespread voter impropriety in Georgia.
It originally went viral on December 1 in a video where he angrily lambasted President Trump, accusing him of endangering the safety of election workers by questioning the announced 2020 election result.
But Sterling has always resented the idea of using the term ‘fraud’ to describe the current situation because it ‘involves a greater conspiracy’.
However, as an earlier analysis of the national file on ballot rejection rates found, a concerted conspiracy to defraud the election would be pointless if election officials simply lowered election security standards during a close race.

National File asked Mr Sterling if he had an explanation for Georgia’s ballot rejection rates plummeting sharply from 6.4% in 2016 to 0.2% in 2020, but received no response at the time of writing this article.
