The first part of the problem was that a warehouse that controls over 140,000 absentee ballots was broken into. "Depending on who you ask, the building contains evidence that either confirms or refutes the claim that voter fraud affected the outcome of the 202o election in the state of Georgia."
Joe Biden won the presidential election by less than 13,000 votes. Fulton County officials, Carlson said, haven't permitted the public to see those absentee ballots that were seized in the warehouse. A claim has been registered for the right to see the ballots. He has seen some, and "it demands an explanation," Carlson said.
Carlson called on the truth to be revealed, for the facts to be laid open. But, he wrote, that this clarity is being confused by none other than election officials in Fulton County. Rob Pitts, an election official, said "it was not necessary to look at the ballots," saying that it was "ridiculous" to want to see them at all.
Pitts repeated what the Biden administration, and leading Democrats, have said, which is that audits, recounts, and certifications are good enough ideas to "stop already." Courts have ruled that the ballots should be stored in that warehouse.
"Except that's not true," Carlson alleges. "It now appears there was meaningful fraud in Fulton County, Georgia, last November. That is not a conspiracy theory, that is true."
As for the facts, Carlson said that "at least 36 groups of mail-in ballots... were double-counted in Fulton County," for a "total of more than 4,000 votes." The final tally "from the double-count," Carlson said, "amounts to more than 3300 votes for Joe Biden and 865 votes for Donald Trump."
left-of-center newspaper the Atlanta Journal-Constitution also discovered that these ballots were double-counted, but said that these ballots were "initially double-counted"
The AJC also ran a comment from County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts who said: "allegations of widespread fraud are based on the 'big lie' that the presidential election was illegitimate."
Evidence was given in a press conference on Tuesday, which Carlson noted on his broadcast.
"We're not talking about a couple of ballots here," Carlson said, "we're talking about a lot of ballots, at least hundreds of ballots involved. Enough to affect the outcome of the election."
Fulton County has maintained that these were "isolated incidents" and that the mistakes were caught in previous recounts. But video shows a woman running the same ballots through a counting machine over and over. Fulton County has refused to provide more than 100,000 tally sheets that would show the counts that were done.
