Newly revealed internal emails testify to one of the most controversial incidents during the 2020 election: The illicit processing of voting ballots in Fulton County, Georgia.
“Internal emails from Fulton County election workers obtained by Just the News are heightening the mystery surrounding ballot-processing in Georgia’s largest county during last November’s presidential contest,” the website reported.
“Two separate sworn affidavits from Election Night poll workers claimed that, at roughly 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, an official directed workers to stop working and to return the next day at 8:30 a.m,” the report continued.
This was substantiated in November as local news outlets reported that election observers and some workers had been sent home. Even the Georgia election authorities eventually conceded the matter.
“Counting at the State Farm Arena, however, continued past 10:30 p.m. after most staffers had left,” the report added. “In December, [county spokeswoman Regina Waller] told Just the News that, contrary to the numerous media reports, she had ‘stated to all media … that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.'”

The local news outlets didn’t alert the public to the fact at the time, however.
“In the emails obtained this weekend by Just the News through an open records request, Waller appears to indicate that the ballot-counting team had dispersed by around 10:30 p.m.,” the report continued.
This suggests a cover-up of the vote-tabulating operation.
“In the email, timestamped at 10:22 p.m. on Nov. 3 and addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain, Waller wrote: ‘The workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow’,” the exclusive report says.
The Fulton County State Farm Arena vote tabulation operation in the heat of a Georgia election race became the focal point of election fraud claims during the 2020 election. And for good reason.
That wasn’t the only internal email obtained by the news outlet.
“In a message sent at 11:15 p.m. that night, Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun wrote to Waller and several other county staffers: ‘FYI – [the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on results’,” the email said. Both emails appear to be misleading in the sense that vote-tabulation was still going on at State Farm Arena.
Despite arguments to the contrary, and disingenuous “fact checks” to “debunk” the claims, it is a verifiable fact that election observers were told to go home. Meanwhile, election workers dragged out a crate of ballots and can observably be seen running ballots through the tabulators multiple times.
The CCTV video from the arena that was obtained by legal affidavit is time-stamped. This is not a made-up media myth, regardless of what “fact checkers” say. Anyone who wants to watch the authentic video can see it for themselves.
The late-night vote tabulation in Fulton County corresponded to a statistically improbable surge in Biden votes that came in after election workers were reported to have gone home for the night.
In addition to the internal emails, sworn affidavits aver that Georgia Republican poll watchers were sent home. Georgia Republican Party Field Organizer Michelle Branton and Georgia Republican Party ballot watcher, Mitchell Harrison said in sworn testimony that the poll watchers were dismissed. However, not only did at least 4 workers stay behind, according to their affidavits, but the counting suddenly stopped when a poll watcher returned.
“The two left State Farm Arena ‘shortly after 10:30 p.m.’ and said that some time after returning to the Fulton County Board of Elections Warehouse, they became aware that ballot counting was still continuing at the arena,” Just the News said. “Harrison said he and another worker eventually returned to to the Arena ‘just before 1:00 a.m.,’ upon which ‘we were told counting had been going on, but had just ended in the last few minutes’.”
There wasn’t just illicit ballot-processing going on at State Farm Arena on election night, there are all the classic signs of a cover-up.
