Georgia’s Fulton County has long been marred with allegations of voting irregularities going back 20 years. And once again, Georgia’s most populous county faces scrutiny amid allegations that fraud tainted the 2020 election results.
Two Fulton County election workers were fired last week after they were caught shredding 300 voter applications for an upcoming municipal election. The county’s elections office released a statement earlier this week confirming that instead of fully processing voter registration applications, “in some instances, the employees allegedly shredded some of the forms.”
In response to this shocking revelation, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger demanded this week that the U.S. Department of Justice open an investigation into the disputed county’s election management.
Raffensperger released a statement imploring the DOJ to get to the bottom of what has been happening in Fulton Country elections.
“After 20 years of documented failure in Fulton County elections, Georgians are tired of waiting to see what the next embarrassing revelation will be,” said the secretary of state. “The Department of Justice needs to take a long look at what Fulton County is doing and how its leadership disenfranchises Fulton voters through incompetence and malfeasance. The voters of Georgia are sick of Fulton County’s failures.”
This latest issue follows in the wake of allegations of voter fraud at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on election night in 2020.
According to Just the News, the state-appointed monitor discovered 29 pages worth of “irregularities, mismanagement and other problems in the Atlanta vote-counting center,” during the election “ranging from double scanning of ballots to insecure transportation of ballots and violations of voter privacy.”
In excerpts obtained by Breitbart from a new book written by Mollie Hemmingway about the 2020 election, Hemmingway claims there were enough voting irregularities in Georgia during the 2020 presidential election to warrant a discussion about holding a do-over election in the Peach State.
The journalist wrote, “In the months since the 2020 election, data has been put forth showing strong reason to question the legality of more votes than the margin Biden won [Georgia] by. Had a court been willing to hear the argument and had Trump’s attorneys been able to show the data in the weeks following the election, a good argument could have been made for holding a new election.”
That new election never came; however, problems still exist in Fulton County. If election officials across America do not take action to fix 2020, President Trump warned this week that Republican voters “will not be voting” in future elections.
