By Townhall. Two Georgia election workers were terminated for allegedly shredding a number of paper voting registration applications over the course of the past two weeks.
Fulton County released a statement Monday that said a preliminary review suggests the employees in question “may have checked out batches of applications for processing.” But instead of fully processing the forms, the employees allegedly shredded some of them.
The employees were terminated Friday after being reported by coworkers that same morning. Their actions were reported to the Office of Investigations within the Secretary of State’s Office, and the county’s District Attorney.
A total of 300 municipal election-related applications were allegedly shredded, according to a statement from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), who has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the incident.
“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.” (Read more from “Georgia Election Workers Fired for Allegedly Shredding Hundreds of Voter Registration Applications” HERE)
