A recent report by the Georgia Star News has apparently set the wheels in motion for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his office to open an investigation into Fulton County for allegedly violating state rules “requiring absentee ballot drop box transfer forms to be filled out.”
CNN has attempted to downplay the situation, citing an anonymous source who cautioned that the probe “does not have any implications about fraudulent or missing ballots in Fulton any more than it meant that in the other smaller, more conservative counties,” saying: “To be clear, we’re investigating a rule violation” in Fulton County.
As we previously reported, Raffensperger said in a tweet, “Restoring confidence in our elections is going to be impossible as long as Fulton County’s elections leadership continues to fail the voters of Fulton County and the voters of Georgia. They need new leadership to step up and take charge.”
“New revelations that Fulton County is unable to produce all ballot drop box transfer documents will be investigated thoroughly, as we have with other counties that failed to follow Georgia rules and regulations regarding drop boxes. This cannot continue,” Raffensperger added.

Liberals like actor, writer, and producer Corey Reynolds quickly changed their tune with Raffensperger as he responded to the tweet and asked, “Can you explain in detail how Fulton County election officials failed the voters of Fulton County? And tell us; why is there a lack of confidence in what was- to quote a trump guy, ‘the most secure election in American history’?”

Conservatives also had strong words for Raffensperger including former GA Senate candidate Derrick Grayson, who suggested he, “Be the change and show them how, by stepping down immediately.”

Previously, we reported:
These shocking revelations out of Fulton County have excited many political influencers and commentators that have supported the idea that the 2020 election had questionable integrity. State Senator out of Arizona, Wendy Rogers, expressed her excitement on Twitter, saying, “When there is smoke there is fire!”, implying that more shocking details may come to the surface.
Fulton County officials have insisted that Raffensperger’s investigation will only focus on the ballot transfer forms and not the individual ballots. Fulton County spokeswoman Jessica Corbitt-Dominguez said, “Fulton County followed procedures for the collection of absentee ballots from Fulton County drop boxes. We maintain a large quantity of documents and (are) researching our files from last year to produce the ballot transfer forms.”
This transfer ballot controversy fuels the fire for other legal cases concerning the election in Georgia. Just last month, Superior Court Judge Brian Amero granted a motion that will unseal high-resolution images of 142,000 absentee ballots cast in Fulton County. A plaintiff in the case, Garland Favorite says that this order was made so the ballots can be “forensically analyzed”. The depositions for this case were postponed until the judge can listen to a hearing on a motion to drop the case (filed by Fulton County lawyers) on the 21st of June. Individual election workers singled out by Donald Trump and his legal team friends were set to be deposed.
