A Democrat has suddenly become an “election denier” after her race was narrowly overturned following the sudden discovery of missing votes on a memory card.
The previously uncounted votes on a memory card changed the election outcome in Cobb County, Georgia, officials say.
Madelyn Orochena had announced her win on social media for the Kennesaw City Council Special Post 1 seat when the results first came in.
“Feeling excited and so grateful! It’s a win! See you Monday,” Orochena wrote in the social media post.
However, Orochena’s victory was short-lived, after the memory card were discovered last Wednesday. The results swung the race to her challenger, Lynette Burnette.
“Unfortunately, once found we did upload it, and it changed the outcome of the Kennesaw City Council race,” Cobb County Elections Director Janine Eveler said. more here
