(LifeSiteNews) — A Georgia county, which includes the city of Atlanta, fired two election workers after they shredded 300 voter registration forms.

Fulton County said in a statement October 11 that it terminated “two employees who have allegedly shredded a number of paper voter registration applications received within the last two weeks.”

“Preliminary review suggests that employees may have checked out batches of applications for processing,” the county said. “Instead of fully processing them, in some instances the employees allegedly shredded some of the forms. Fellow employees reported this behavior to their supervisor on Friday morning and the employees were terminated the same day.”

Georgia’s secretary of state called for a federal Department of Justice investigation to complement his own inquiry.

“Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Fulton County elections following recent allegations that Fulton County shredded 300 municipal election-related applications in violation of state law,” a statement said. “The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has already launched an investigation into the allegations.”

“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.”

The county has come under criticism before, particularly for how it handled the 2020 election. The secretary of state’s office said a monitor, Carter Jones, “found no fraud” but did identify “significant mismanagement issues.”

Jones began monitoring Fulton County’s election processes beginning in October 2020.

Just the News obtained a copy of the consultant’s report.

While the findings in the June report would not lead to Georgia’s votes in 2020 being overturned, it shows a “portrait of incompetence, mismanagement and bad election processes in Georgia’s largest voting center undercuts claims by state officials that the election went swimmingly,” according to Just the News.

Jones’ report identified a “massive chain of custody problem,” after learning that thousands of ballots were moved in between buildings, down a street, in rolling bins. “It is my understanding … that the ballots are supposed to be moved in numbered, sealed boxes to protect them,” Jones wrote.

He also highlighted one of the controversial decisions of the ballot counting — telling poll watchers in Fulton County that counting was finished for the day, while still counting votes. Poll watchers represent political parties and are there to ensure oversight of ballot counting.

Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe is standing for governor of Virginia and, like Joe Biden, he likes to say he is a "very strong Catholic."

Yet, also like Biden, he strongly supports killing unborn babies and is a longtime defender of the abortion industry. As if to underscore that fact, McAuliffe has even ghoulishly campaigned at an abortion center in his latest run for office.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which tells Terry McAuliffe to reject killing the innocent, stop supporting the abortion industry, and return to the Catholic Faith! This petition will also be CC'ed to the Virginia Catholic Bishops' Conference.

In spite of the fact that McAuliffe was born and raised in a Catholic family and graduated from a Catholic high school and university, he has supported the murder of the unborn throughout his life in elected office.

Indeed, McAuliffe has been taken to task several times by different dioceses. Going back to 2004, McAuliffe was disinvited as a guest speaker at his high school alma mater in Syracuse, New York, because of comments he made during a radio interview, saying that abortion is a matter of choice.

Fast-forward to 2017, when then-Governor McAuliffe (of Virginia) was excoriated by the Virginia Bishops' Conference for vetoing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood.

At the time, the Bishops' Conference stated that McAuliffe's "actions harm the dignity of women deceived by the multibillion-dollar abortion industry as well as the tiniest females, those still in the womb whose lives are brutally eliminated by abortion."

Nevertheless, McAuliffe apparently still sees nothing wrong with his support of killing unborn babies, and, as above, he recently toured an abortion mill for a morbidly opportunistic campaign photo-op. (See tweet below.)

Stepping foot inside a place where babies are actually killed, and then campaigning to keep such murderous facilities open, takes support for abortion to a heinous new low.

And, supporting abortion as a public official is even worse for McAuliffe in terms of his relationship with God and the Catholic Church.

While supporting abortion is always wrong, Catholic politicians who vocally support abortion have an even greater responsibility to renounce their wayward positions precisely because of the scandal it can cause to the Catholic faithful, very possibly leading many others astray.

Relying on the Catechism lessons he received throughout his high school and university education, Terry McAuliffe should now reconsider his position on the killing of unborn children, and take this opportunity to publicly repent of his support for abortion, the killing of the innocent.

If McAuliffe does not take steps to publicly repent of his adamant support of abortion, the bishops of Virginia should take this opportunity to address and clarify his relationship with the Eucharist and the Church.

Terry McAulliffe and all Virginians deserve to know about his standing in the Catholic Church, especially if his relationship with the Church is something he likes to speak about publicly.

Thank you for SIGNING this important petition, which will be CC'ed to the Viriginia Bishops' Conference, and which implores Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe to reject his support for abortion and the abortion industry.

After you have signed, please consider SHARING this vital petition with your like-minded friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.

Thank you!

“There is confusion about whether or not they’re still scanning at State Farm bc there were reports that the staff there told the rest of the staff and press to leave, but I am still getting number reports from Shaye,” Jones wrote near midnight on election night in his report.

These issues were partially behind a new Georgia election integrity law signed by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp on March 25, 2021. The new legislation “gives the State Election Board new powers to intervene in county election offices and to remove and replace local election officials,” according to the Associated Press.

“Georgia’s State Election Board in August appointed a review panel to investigate Fulton County’s handling of elections after receiving requests from Republican lawmakers who represent the county,” CBS News reported.

Nearly a year after the 2020 presidential election, researchers continue to uncover anomalies and other problems with the casting and counting of ballots.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation identified nearly 15 million ballots from the 2020 election that were sent out to voters but for which there is no known status.

An audit of the election in Maricopa County, Arizona, completed on September 24, “flagged around 50,000 problematic votes, including 23,344 mail-in ballots cast from voters using a prior address,” according to LifeSiteNews.

“Another 5,295 votes came from people who potentially voted in multiple counties, while over 9,000 returned votes were not shown as having been sent out, according to the report,” LifeSiteNews reported. “Biden’s certified victory margin in Arizona was just 10,457 out of 3.3 million votes.”

The county has refuted the accusations.
