The saying during the Watergate investigations was it is not the crime it is the cover up. It looks like Georgia election officials aren’t familiar with that saying; within hours of the a Georgia Senate committee voting unanimously to allow an audit of the ballots in Fulton County, trucks reportedly appeared to take the ballots away for shredding.
The committee vote came after Pulitzer reported that his team was able to access voting machines in the county during the hearing using the internet.
Assuming that the reports prove true, will election officials claim that destruction of the ballots is just an honest mistake?
Will the mainstream media continue to report “no evidence of fraud” in Fulton County but fail to mention the evidence has been destroyed to prevent an audit?
Is it possible that election officials are illegally destroying ballots because they know they have a lot to hide?
The reports of trucks taking ballots away for shredding should be easy to check. We don’t need rely on Pulitzer to settle that question.
My understanding is that federal law requires retention of the paper ballots. Also if election officials were innocent, then logically they would want to do everything to protect the ballots to confirm their innocence.
Reports of destruction of ballots raise giant red flags on multiple levels.
