Surveillance videos of ballot drop boxes in Georgia captured evidence of tens of thousands of ballots being dumped into these boxes by a cadre of 240 political activists. These drop boxes are intended for individual voter use. While persons are allowed to deliver the ballots of immediate family members into these boxes, ballot harvesting is illegal in Georgia.
Former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams defended these vote dumps, calling the video evidence “racist. Since when is recovering uncast ballots, filling them in, and putting them in the drop boxes a bad thing. It was because of this extraordinary extra effort that Georgia was able to hit new heights in ballots cast in the 2020 election. That was a good thing.”
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger urged that “we not jump to the conclusion that there was any skullduggery involved in these midnight ballot deposits. I’ve already certified that the election was the most secure ever accomplished in our state. Just because a persons deposits hundreds of ballots at at time oesn’t change my initial assessment. There are lots of large families in Georgia and we cannot definitely say that these ballots weren’t all deposited by immediate family members.”
