Investigators Descend On Arena After Ballot ‘Issues’ Discovered In Battleground State
Things are starting to get real fishy.
In Georgia, the States top election offices has sent a team of investigators to Fulton county after a ballot “issue” was discovered.
Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger released a statement that investigators have been rushed to State Farm Arena, home of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks where ballot-counting has been taking place.
“Fulton County has discovered an issue involving reporting from their work on Friday. Officials are at State Farm Arena to rescan their work from Friday,” Raffensperger said in a Facebook post. “The Secretary of State has a monitor onsite, has sent additional investigators, and dispatched the Deputy Secretary of State as well to oversee the process to make sure to thoroughly secure the vote and protect all legal votes. Observers from both political parties are there as well.”
Raffensperger did not get into details about what the “issue” was.
Brendan Keefe, a chief investigative reporter for 11Alive, a local NBC affiliate said that the development “may” affect the lead Biden currently has in the state.

President Trump has rightly complained about voting irregularities in several states. Biden’s lead in Georgia razor-thin any change in votes could alter who wins the state.
