Bridget Thorne, a voting technician in Fulton County, Georgia, said that she witnessed firsthand several irregularities that took place during the 2020 presidential election.
In an interview on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Dec. 8, Thorne said mail-in ballots that arrived at the State Farm Arena were handled “haphazardly.”
“When they came in from the warehouse, they were haphazardly treated by anybody who wanted to dump the ballots out of the scanner tabulators,” Thorne said, “and there was no oath administered. There weren’t two people present. People were just dumping them in suitcases and then leaving the suitcases on the floor and taking a break for dinner or just quitting the job.”
Thorne said she had filed a sworn affidavit and reached out to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Last Thursday, video footage taken by security cameras at the State Farm Arena, Georgia, showed election officials pulled out suitcases full of ballots from under a table and continued to count after telling Republican observers to leave due to an alleged broken water pipe.
Numerous complaints of electoral fraud and other voting irregularities were filed in Georgia’s state court, including thousands of votes from jailed criminals, minors, unregistered individuals, duplicate votes, late votes, and from the deceased.
Following two recounts without signature verifications, Raffensperger on Monday, Dec. 7, announced he affirmed the 2020 election results in favor of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
According to official results from the state’s website, of almost 5 million votes cast, Biden led President Donald Trump with 12,670 votes.
Gov. Brian Kemp (R) has yet to announce the certification. Kemp recently said he called on Raffensperger to order a signature audit but he rejected President Trump’s call for a special session of the Legislature.
“But you never got the signature verification! Your people are refusing to do what you ask. What are they hiding? At least immediately ask for a Special Session of the Legislature. That you can easily, and immediately, do,” President Trump said in a tweet in response to Kemp.
Separately in Georgia, the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit on Tuesday seeking fixes to alleged violations of election law ahead of two runoff elections for the U.S. Senate that will determine party control of the chamber.
The lawsuit demanded access to precincts for GOP poll watchers and rules governing the use of drop boxes for absentee ballots being restricted, according to Fox News.
“Upon information and belief, the same or substantially similar unlawful practices will resume in connection with the imminent January 5, 2021 runoff election,” the lawsuit states.
Election officials are “statutorily required to ensure that county and municipal superintendents and registrars are properly and lawfully instructed on the rights of poll watchers and do not implement policies or procedures that impair their ability to fully and meaningfully observe the election process.”
