In a state where the 2020 Electoral College votes were given to Joe Biden by only 11,779 votes, a new complaint filed with the Georgia State Election Board charges that more than 300,000 ballots were unreliably recorded on unverified poll closing tapes, reports Just the News.
“Fulton County’s Advance Voting poll closing tapes are a fraudulent, un-certified, unsigned, and un-checked false representation of over 311,000 ballots that no court could legally accept,” the complaint, filed recently by David Cross, who runs the “Election Truth in Georgia” website, and independent journalist Kevin Moncla, charges.
The allegations are based on their open records request to Fulton County, which followed reporting by Just the News in 2020 that memory cards were prematurely, and improperly, removed from vote tabulating machines during that election because of ballot storage limits.
The complaint explains that Fulton County violated state law over the closing of ballot scanner polls and tampering with ballot scanners, Just the News revealed.
“At the end of early voting in the 2020 election, on October 30th, ‘with the ballot scanner polls still open, the seals were broken and the flashcards were removed,’ according to the recent complaint,” the report confirmed.
The rules require that a flashcard is used for only one specific tabulator and cannot be removed until 7 p.m. on election night. And the report said state law calls for at least three copies of each poll tape with the total number of ballots stored on the card, and three witnesses must sign each copy.
The report explains there were 148 flashcards for early voting in the county, and responding to the open records case, the county released 138 poll tapes, 136 of which were not signed, “Meaning the identities of the persons who checked the ballot numbers are unknown,” Just the News said.
Further, the 136 poll tapes indicated the corresponding flashcards “were closed on 12 different ballot scanners,” a violation of state law, the investigators charged.
During an interview on “Just the News, Not Noise,” Moncla explained that the county took the flashcards from 109 tabulators and “closed them out” on different machines, which would leave them unsecure and open to manipulation.
“If those flashcards were put into another machine, then we would never know it. They could have scanned — added additional votes, and we would have no idea,” he warned.
Just the News said it first learned about the complaint from Real America’s Voice correspondent Heather Mullins.
Part of the issue is that Georgia was using Dominion Voting Systems machines for the first time, and while the company originally claimed the cards would hold 10,000 ballots, a later advisory reduced that to 5,000, and eventually Dominion said they should be replaced at 3,000 ballots, Just the News reported. But apparently none of those advisories was accurate, and some held 7,000.
The complaint raises several challenges, however:
First, election records reveal that ballot scanners were being reprogrammed with new flashcards at various and wide-ranging ballot counts. There appears to be no correlation between the number of ballots scanned and replacing the flashcards. Certainly not anything consistent with the ballot count approaching the stated [5,000-count] threshold.
Second, Fulton County’s own records negate that the flashcard storage capacity is 5,000 ballot images. There are several Advance Voting ballot scanners that far exceed the given benchmark, the largest of which scanned 7,206 ballots. Ironically, the largest ‘Total Scanned’ number of 7,206 was amassed by a ballot scanner after it had been reprogrammed, purportedly because it neared capacity.
Third, if capacity was the sincere concern which precipitated the flashcard replacement, why is it that after the cards were replaced, they were allowed to scan much larger numbers than those they replaced …?
The state told Just the News it has yet to respond to the complaint.
While there remain a good number of unanswered questions about irregularities in the 2020 election, several influences are known to have existed.
One was the $420 million Mark Zuckerberg gave to local election officials which often ended up being used to recruit voters from Democrat districts, a campaign a later analysis charged essential bought the election for Joe Biden.
Second, many elections officials, based on COVID-19 worries, simply ignored their own state laws about mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting.
Finally, there was the concerted legacy and social media campaign to suppress accurate, and damaging, reporting about the Biden family’s overseas business scandals just days before the election. A Media Research Center study showed had that information been distributed routinely, enough voters would have withheld their support to deprive Biden of the election.
