An election integrity organization known as VoterGA announced on Wednesday that deep analysis of mail-in ballot images obtained via a Georgia state court order indicates that hand-count audits previously done in Fulton County following the contested 2020 presidential election were “riddled with massive errors and provable fraud,” as detailed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wednesday.
The analysis by the group, formally known as Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia, found at least three dozen batches of mail-in ballots containing some 4,255 votes that were added more than once to audit results; nearly 3,400 of those votes went to the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden.
In one of the examples, the group said that a batch contained 59 ballot images for Biden and 42 for then-President Donald Trump; however, that batch was reported as 100 votes for Biden and no votes for Trump.

In addition, the analysis overall found that 923, or 60 percent, of the 1,539 mail-in batch files were replete with votes that were not reported correctly in Fulton County’s official 2020 election tally, as compared to the audit totals, according to VoterGA.
“We believe that there is massive audit errors,” said Garland Favorito, founder of the group, during a Tuesday press conference.
VoterGA managed to obtain the ballot images as part of a lawsuit filed in late 2020 to obtain permission to inspect every mail-in ballot that was cast in the county, which includes Atlanta, during the 2020 election cycle, alleging that fraud occurred.
The petition to the court cited witnesses who say they saw instances of fraud, including Favorito as well as poll workers and watchers. Henry County Judge Brian Amero ordered scanned ballots to be made available to the group in March; late last month he allowed part of an election-related lawsuit to proceed.
In his presser, Favorito alleged that elected officials have known about the inconsistencies “for a long, long time,” going on to accuse them of having “covered it up.”
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, during a Wednesday segment, broke down in detail what the VoterGA audit team has found thus far, beginning with an odd incident in May at a Fulton County storage warehouse where some 140,000-plus absentee ballots from the 2020 election cycle were stored. A door to the heavily guarded facility was discovered wide open after deputies and other security personnel were oddly ordered away from the building for a period of time.
Carlson noted that it’s unclear what happened — if anything — inside the building in the absence of the officers.
“We do know that a lot of people might have had reason to try and get inside the warehouse,” Carlson said. “Depending on who you ask, the building contains evidence that either confirms or refutes the claim that voter fraud affected the outcome of the election in the state of Georgia.”
After noting that an attorney, Robert Cheeley, has been pressing for transparency as well as access to scanned ballots, Carlson noted that Fulton County official, Robb Pitts, has steadfastly maintained that no fraud occurred and that three recounts thus far have confirmed as much.
But, as Carlson noted, Pitts’ explanation does not address the discrepancies VoterGA discovered, such as why ballots were counted more than once and election tallies for Biden and Trump were misreported.
He then moved to a video clip of VoterGA official David Cross pointing out how absentee ballot images were duplicated and thus incorrectly tallied.
“We’re not talking about a couple of ballots here,” Carlson continued. “Enough, potentially, to affect the outcome of the election.”
Carlson followed that up with a surveillance video clip obtained by VoterGA of at least one Fulton County election worker who appears to have scanned the same batch of ballots multiple times, as well as images taken by a whistleblower and provided to the voter integrity group of stacks of supposed mail-in ballots that were pristine — as in, they had no fold marks, which is not possible if they were actually mailed, the host suggested.
In addition, he said, the whistleblower observed other stacks of ballots that appeared to have been printed — all with identical vote choices, and all for Democrats including Biden. And, VoterGA said its audit team found more than 200 Fulton County mail-in ballot images contained votes that were never included in subsequent hand audit recounts from the November election.
Finally, Carlson reported that elections expert Mark Davis looked at Post Office data and determined that in the months before the November election, some 35,000 people moved out of their county of residence into another voting jurisdiction, but cast ballots in the former home county anyway. “That is illegal,” Carlson said. “By law, their vote should have been excluded from the total.”
Former President Trump issued a statement following the revelations from Favorito earlier this week.
“The news coming out of Georgia is beyond incredible. The hand recount in Fulton County was a total fraud! They stuffed the ballot box—and got caught. We will lose our Country if this is allowed to stand,” he said.
