Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s (R) office on Monday rejected President Trump’s call for him to “overrule” his secretary of state.

In a statement to the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a Kemp spokesperson said that “Georgia law prohibits the governor from interfering in elections” after Trump in messages on Twitter questioned why the “hapless” governor was not interceding on his behalf.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order,” Kemp’s communication’s director, Cody Hall, said.

Hall added, “As the governor has said repeatedly, he will continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps — including a sample audit of signatures — to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised.”

President Trump blasted Kemp in a pair of Twitter posts Monday morning, writing, “Why won’t [email protected], the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state.”

“Also, quickly check the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots. You may just find that there are many more ballots than there are envelopes. So simple, and so easy to do. Georgia Republicans are angry, all Republicans are angry. Get it done!” Trump added.

President Trump said on Sunday about Kemp, “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him.”

  1. Question is, why do they separate the envelopes from the ballots? Seems to me if envelopes are tossed without the ability to compare signatures, then an audit of mail in ballots is useless.
