No, there were no 'suitcases of ballots' counted in secret -- GEORGIA 2020


VIDEO is OBVIOUSLY SPLICED. @ 38 sec these bins appear out of nowhere.
@37 sec no bins.
@17 sec you can see the ballot boxes brought out @38 sec are already there.


No, there were no 'suitcases of ballots' counted in secret

The most viral claim from the hearing is a 90-second clip of surveillance footage from Fulton County's tabulation center set up at State Farm Arena. Culled from hours of vote counting, the short clip allegedly shows election workers bringing suitcases of ballots out from underneath a table to be counted in secret after Republican monitors were told to go home.

But that's not what was shown and the claims misunderstand the laws and rules around counting.


Sterling, the state's voting system implementation manager, said that investigators for the state watched the full surveillance video from Election Day and said those bins of ballots were already there and accounted for earlier in the day, while both monitors and the media were there.


Gabriel Sterling with the Secretary of State's Office tweeted "the 90 second video of election workers purporting to show fraud was watched in its entirety (hours) by @GaSecofState investigators. Shows normal ballot processing."

"The press reported that there was like a supposed water main break, or pipe break or whatever, and this was an excuse for people clearing out of State Farm," Pick said at the hearing.

The water pipe leak and the events on the surveillance video did not happen on the same night. Those two events occurred 17 hours apart.

Senator: They've investigated repeatedly, that they had a monitor on-site the entire time, that this whole thing has been debunked for weeks by our Secretary of State's Office.

Pick: I doubt he's seen the video.

Senator: What evidence?

Pick: Your officials need to watch the video.

11Alive learned that they did watch the video, which is not new. State investigators reviewed the State Farm surveillance tapes weeks ago.

State Farm #suitcasegate video:
Water leak & counting happened on 2 different nights
NOT #Suitcase. Standard ballot containers
Press & monitors told counting done for the night
No one was told/forced to leave
Notice should have been given of ongoing counting pic.twitter.com/O0VTZa8Mii
