Georgia’s Congressional Republicans Can’t Spell ‘Georgia’ In Vote Fraud Letter
Current and newly elected Republican members of Congress from Georgia pushed the state Tuesday to review what they called “irregularities that cloud the state’s election.”
No surprise there. The GOP delegation is falling in lockstep behind lame duck President Donald Trump’s lies about a stolen election to explain his defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.
But the letter might have carried more weight if the House representatives had spelled “Georgia” correctly. Their request addresses Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Trump-endorsed Republican overseeing the vote-counting in the state, as the George secretary of state.
Georgia’s votes for president are still being counted and the neck-and-neck tally is headed for a recount. Still, Raffensperger said he expected the final outcome to show Biden the winner by a thin margin.
Georgia’s Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who will compete in runoffs in January, also hurled false allegations of election fraud and called for Raffensperger to resign after GOP candidates underperformed in the state. Raffensperger, who said he joined the senators in being “unhappy with the potential outcome for our President,” called Georgia’s elections “transparent” and “orderly.”
As for the state of George, well, Twitter elected to mock the misspelling.

Lebanon to Impose Nationwide Lockdown as Virus Strains Hospitals
Lebanon plans to impose a full lockdown from Nov. 14 until the end of this month to give the health sector, already reeling under strain from the financial crisis, time to avoid a collapse as the country witnesses a spike in the coronavirus cases.
“Today, we have reached a red line with the number of cases and a very dangerous phase amid the inability of hospitals, both public and private, to receive critical cases,” outgoing Premier Hassan Diab said.
The government had been trying to avoid a total lockdown to spare businesses the pain of closure, imposing a partial one that officials say failed to stem the outbreak. Lebanon has so far reported about 95,000 cases.

The bubbly blonde is studying for her New York real estate license, a source told Gimme. She doesn’t have it yet, but when she does, she is slated to join Michael Lorber’s star team at Douglas Elliman.

The four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom condo first came on the market in 2018, asking $4.9 million and sold last year.
She had bought the 2,468 square foot unit at 201 E. 80th St. with her then-husband, Mario Singer, for $1.42 million in 1998.
The unit features 9-foot three-inch beamed ceilings, crown moldings, an eat-in chef’s kitchen and floor to ceiling windows showcasing city views. Building amenities include a landscaped roof garden.
Singer is currently renting a unit at 260 E. 66th St., the Solo Tower, sources say.

Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh on lawsuits the campaign has filed in Pennsylvania, other battleground states.
Presidential-elect Joe Biden is now leading President Trump by more than 50,000 votes in Pennsylvania.
Trump is currently contesting the results of the election in the state days after Biden was declared a winner.
Biden has the lead by 50,481 votes, eeking ahead by a 0.75% margin– just over the .5% needed for a losing candidate to request a recount.
