ATLANTA, Georgia (PNN) - June 12, 2021 - Documents from Fulton County, Georgia, that were submitted to state officials for the election audit highlight significant irregularities in the Atlanta area during last November’s voting, ranging from identical vote tallies repeated multiple times to large batches of absentee ballots that appear to be missing from the official ballot-scanning records.
Thousands of ballots are potentially impacted by these irregularities, suggesting they could be results-changing, as Joe Biden’s state-certified victory in the state was by fewer than 12,000 votes.
Memos revealed included handwritten tally sheets for all absentee ballots counted by the county as well as a private report from a contractor hired by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to monitor the Atlanta-area election process.
The report, which chronicled seven days of problems, recorded troubling behavior like the mysterious removal of a suitcase of sensitive election data known as polls pads, which are used to authenticate voters.
“Learn that Rick reprogramming poll pads earlier was setting up a new precinct for SC11 because someone took the wrong suitcase but only took one,” the contractor Seven Hills Strategy wrote late on November 2, the night before Election Day. “Seems to be a mystery who this person was - Should have chain of custody paperwork!! That means that a stranger just walked out with sensitive election materials?”
The contractor also observed that sensitive election materials were left on a dock at a warehouse without supervision. “Several cases (including SC11) were just left out on the loading dock outside the warehouse,” he wrote. “Thankfully the seals were intact.”
Last month, Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero unsealed approximately 145,000 Fulton County absentee ballots from the 2020 election, approving them for an audit. An examination of ballots would get to the bottom of what they see as suspicious activity by election officials at State Farm Arena in November.
Lawyer Bob Cheeley, who’s leading the audit, said that the evidence he’s seen so far points to “election tabulation malpractice,” though experts and state election officials disagree on whether the evidence is proof of fraud or gross incompetence. They are, however, mostly united in the opinion that top election supervisors in Fulton County should be removed.
