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.
