Emails Catch Ga. Official Apparently Lying about Sending Home Election Workers

Secretary of State ' 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...”'

As a judge seems likely to unseal the absentee ballots in Georgia‘s Fulton County, the populous blue area that covers much of urban Atlanta, newly disclosed e-mails raised questions about the statements of a key figure overseeing the election results there.

According to Just the News, the election-night emails revealed inconsistencies with the official account issued by county spokeswoman Regina Waller over the dismissal of poll watchers and others under highly suspicious circumstances.

Witnesses and media reports confirmed that there was a call made around 10:30 p.m. on election night for all election workers to go home and plan to resume the counting early the next morning.

Nonetheless, video footage showed about four officials, including Waller, remained on the floor afterward and continued to count, even pulling out suitcases full of ballots that appeared to have been concealed under the tables.

Waller claimed that she had been transparent about the fact that some officials had stated behind.

She told Just the News that 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.”

But a newly obtained email from Waller at 10:22 p.m. on Nov. 3 contradicted that claim. It showed her apparently telling other election officials of the plan to resume around 8 a.m.

Another email at 11:15 p.m. added further confusion, accusing Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger of having thrown “the team under the bus” in a statement confirming that Fulton officials had stopped for the night.

Among those who offered sworn testimony about the irregularities was Mitchell Harrison, a GOP poll watcher who said a woman had dismissed the workers “sometime after 10 o’clock.”

Perhaps after hearing reports that the counting had resumed, Harrison and another witness returned to the arena “just before 1:00 a.m.”

However, they “were told counting had been going on, but had just ended in the last few minutes.”

The Trump administration subsequently identified an estimated 144,000 ineligible votes throughout the state, where other counties also acknowledge irregularities with their voting machines and software.

Ultimately, Democrat Joe Biden beat the incumbent Trump by 11,779 votes according to the officially certified result.

Many of the officials tasked with fielding election disputes, including Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, refused to follow up on Trump’s requests for additional data, drawing heavy criticism.

Raffensperger’s office even attempted to smear Trump by having officials leak false quotations to the Washington Post to claim the president had coerced them to “find the fraud.”
