The issues with elections in Fulton County are the worst kept secret in Georgia, and the Presidential election in November 2020 was no exception. The allegation of errors, neglect, bullying, stuffing the box with fake ballots, and countless other cases of fraud were rampant, causing ongoing investigations into the county’s ability to produce a clean election by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Now Axios reports that “two Fulton County election workers have been fired after they were accused of shredding hundreds of voter registration applications which prompted Georgia’s secretary of state to call on the federal government to investigate the county’s operations.”
Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts, who reported the conduct to District Attorney Fani Willis, defended his county’s election handling. “Elections are the most important function of our government. We have committed to transparency and integrity,” Pitts claimed.

Secretary Raffensperger called on Biden’s Department of Justice to investigate the elections workers who allegedly shredded 300 voter registration applications instead of processing them as they usually would.
“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 Secretary Raffensperger.
“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,” Raffensperger said.
