Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones announced Wednesday that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn will accompany him at various rallies later this month.

Jones emailed supporters and said Flynn will appear with him at the following Take Back Georgia rallies:

• Noon, Friday, August 27, at the Dalton Municipal Airport at 4485 Airport Road Southeast in Dalton.

• 5 p.m. Friday, August 27, at the Holiday Harbor Marina, 5989 Groovers Landing Rd Southeast No. 2927, in Acworth.

• Noon, Saturday, August 28, at the Perry-Houston County Airport, 200 Myrtle Field Road in Perry.

Jones, referring to the November 2020 presidential election, last month asked for a forensic audit of all of the state’s 159 counties.

Jones said he was glad to know that Georgia Speaker of the House David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) had called upon the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to look into alleged voting fraud in Fulton County.

The request comes after an independent observer for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger noted two dozen pages of irregularities in the Atlanta vote counting center on November 3. These irregularities included double scanning of ballots, insecure transportation of ballots, and possible voter privacy violations.

Separately, a watchdog group called VoterGA, which won court access to absentee ballot data, said its review found that Fulton County’s hand count audit of the November election was riddled with “massive errors and provable fraud.”

Jones announced his candidacy for governor in April. At the time, he said Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s job performance, especially when it came to ensuring “a free, fair, and transparent election,” had fallen short.

According to Ballotpedia, Jones served in the Georgia House of Representatives as a Democrat between 2017 until January of this year. He left the Democratic Party in 2021 and switched to the GOP.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump pardoned Flynn in November, bringing to an end a nearly three-year legal battle that began with the retired general’s guilty plea as part of the special counsel’s probe.
