The Georgia Board of Elections has launched a review into the votes in Fulton County and has set the stage for the possible takeover of oversight of elections in the county.

Board member Sarah Tindal Ghazal stated, “It is both my hope and expectation that the members of the review board who have been nominated today will take their jobs very seriously and will engage in the review with the singular goal in mind.”

According to NBC News:


Georgia’s Republican-controlled State Election Board took a step Wednesday toward a possible takeover of elections in Fulton County.

The board has decided to take aim at Fulton County, which delivered key wins for the Democratic party during the 2020 election cycle and has long been a target of Republican lawmakers.

Many Republicans continue to claim without evidence that fraud in the county contributed to former President Donald Trump’s narrow loss in the state. An independent monitor found no evidence of fraud or impropriety.

The board voted during a meeting on Wednesday morning to appoint three people to conduct a performance review of Fulton County. Members include Republican Ricky Kittle, chairman of the Catoosa County elections board; Democrat Stephen Day, a member of the Gwinnett County elections board; and Ryan Germany, general counsel for Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Republican lawmakers in Georgia asked the board to appoint an oversight committee to look over Fulton County’s handling of the 2020 election.

The whole process is expected to take about 90 days, from the request to the point where a preliminary hearing on the investigation results will be presented.

The inclusion of the general counsel for GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger could lead to some criticism due to his conduct following the election being questionable.
