Fake Trump voter lets poll deniers into Georgia office

  • A new video has added a layer of intrigue to Georgia’s investigation into Trump’s post-election actions.
  • Fake Trump voter seen on tape letting Trump-linked agents into Coffee County office
  • The group included Cyber ​​Ninjas CEO Doug Logan, the man behind Arizona’s botched vote audit.

Newly obtained video shows a fake Trump voter in Georgia letting data mining experts associated with Donald Trump into an election office the day the office’s voting systems were breached, according to CNN.

Cathy Latham, who worked as Coffee County’s election supervisor during the 2020 election, was filmed allowing at least two men who worked with data company SullivanStricker and whose visit was coordinated by Latham and the former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell.

According to CNN, the two men in the video Latham let in, Scott Hall and Paul Maggio, confirmed in court papers that they were able to extract at least half a terabyte of data from Dominion Voting Systems machines in the office.

Latham was among 16 GOP officials in Georgia who rejected voters’ choice for then-presidential nominee Joe Biden and instead voted for Trump in a closed meeting on December 14, 2020. She was also the chairwoman of the Coffee County Republican Party at the time.

By The New York Timesthis new video footage also shows that Doug Logan – CEO of Cyber ​​Ninjas, a firm that gained notoriety for its random voting audit in Maricopa County, Arizona – was one of the consultants admitted to the county office of Coffee in January 2021.

After the election, a criminal investigation was launched by the Fulton County District Attorney into election officials who breached election data, and Latham’s actions became a focal point of the investigation. Trump and several allies, including Rudy Giulani and Sen. Lindsey Grahamwere also involved in the investigation to determine whether state election laws were violated.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Latham in May denied authorizing agents to enter and extract data.

“It’s bull hockey. If it had happened, it would have been all over town,” Latham said. According to AJC, at least four visits between the data company and Latham were coordinated.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reported last month that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was also investigating how a data company linked to former Trump attorney Powell made copies of data from Dominion voting machines in Coffee County. It is currently unclear whether Powell associates who visited the Coffee or Logan County office had made copies of the data.

“Although Ms Latham does not claim to remember the details of everything that happened on that specific date over a year and a half ago, she does remember going to the Elections Office after teaching at school on January 7, 2021 to audit some of the voter review boards in the run-off election, and she testified truthfully to those facts,” said Robert Cheeley, her attorney. The Washington Post. Cheeley also claimed that his client “would not and was not knowingly involved in any irregularity during an election.”

Latham did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. The Fulton County prosecutor did not immediately provide comment.
