Georgia election workers fired for tampering with voter forms

In George, two election workers in the state’s most populous county lost their jobs for allegedly shredding voter applications.

Fulton County found that two employees may have erroneously checked out batches of applications for processing but shredded a portion of them instead. Other employees reported the behavior to their supervisor.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) said 300 election-related applications were destroyed within the past two weeks.

“After 20 years of documented failure in Fulton County elections, Georgians are tired of waiting to see what the next embarrassing revelation will be,” Raffensperger said.

“The Department of Justice needs to take a long look at what Fulton County is doing and how their leadership disenfranchises Fulton voters through incompetence and malfeasance. The voters of Georgia are sick of Fulton County’s failures,” he added.

Trump at ‘substantial risk of charges’ over Georgia election meddling

Former President Donald Trump is still under federal investigation over a Jan. 2 phone call to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger pressuring him to overturn the results of the 2020 election. A group of legal experts published an analysis arguing that Trump’s actions leave him “at substantial risk of possible state charges predicated on multiple crimes.”

During the now-infamous call, Trump asked Raffensperger to “just find” the 11,779 votes he would need to defeat Joe Biden in the state.

“These charges potentially include: criminal solicitation to commit election fraud; intentional interference with performance of election duties; conspiracy to commit election fraud; criminal solicitation; and state RICO violations,” the group wrote. “Our conclusion is based entirely on publicly available reporting and evidence, including the recording of Trump’s call to Raffensperger.”

The experts say the events show a broader nefarious intention to manipulate the election outcome in crucial swing states. Members of the group include former Obama administration ethics attorney Norm Eisen and former Reagan administration deputy solicitor general Donald Ayer.
