When Kandiss Taylor ran for Governor of Georgia, one of her promises was the destruction of the Georgia Guidestones. She wasn’t elected, but the local landmark has been destroyed anyway. As the investigation continues, she’s somewhat upset that people are calling the demolition an act of vandalism, rather than thanking God for it.
Taylor already credited God for the damage, after an early morning security video showed what appeared to be an explosion damaging some of the stones. Now it seems she’s not happy with the backlash. She’s released a video in which she says that people are only calling it an act of vandalism “instead of actually giving God credit, because they don’t know how to explain what happens when God moves.”

She says, “Until I see a video that shows me anything but what looked like lightning, or the hand of God moving on a situation, I’m gonna believe that it was God. If it was vandalism, then there’s cameras everywhere, all over the place, that would’ve picked that up.”
Fortunately, if Kandiss (or anyone else) is interested in what’s actually on the security cameras, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has helpfully shared some footage. Their latest release shows an unidentified individual approaching the monument, placing the explosives, and running away.

The agency had previously released separate footage showing a vehicle leaving the site after the explosion, and the explosion itself.

Taylor has not addressed the most newly-released video or answered the question of whether she thinks the individual in the footage is dropping off a package of lightning rather than explosives.
However, she does go on to warn all those who are linking her to the vandalism, saying that she is recording these contacts and saving them.
