Joe Biden has been president for more than four months, but claims questioning the legitimacy of his election are still widespread online.
One of those recent claims focuses on Georgia, where Biden beat incumbent Donald Trump by more than 12,000 votes in the 2020 presidential election. In a May 25 article, the Gateway Pundit claimed to have evidence of fraud.
“In Georgia … a sample of military ballots were reviewed recently and all went for Joe Biden,” the conservative website wrote in the article, which has more than 2,600 shares on Facebook. “There is no way these were legit.”
The Gateway Pundit cited an episode of the show “War Room” from Steve Bannon, the former Trump White House chief strategist. During the show, conservative radio host John Fredericks spoke about a recent effort to review copies of absentee ballots in Fulton County, Georgia.
“Out of a batch of 950 military mail-in ballots, Joe Biden got 950 votes, Trump: zero,” he said. “That’s 100%. That is virtually impossible to have happen.”
