‘You piece of s**t!’ Former NY police chief refuses to let Raffensperger off the hook on Fulton County

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger publicly lambasted Fulton County’s election mismanagement this week after an election integrity organization said that the county’s hand count audit of the 2020 election was “riddled with massive errors and provable fraud.”

But former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik wasn’t about to let the Georgia official off the hook so easily, after Raffensperger called for the firing of Rick Barron, the Fulton County elections director, and registration chief Ralph Jones, saying in a tweet the county’s “continued failures have gone on long enough with no accountability.”

Suffice it to say, the former commissioner didn’t mince his words.

“You piece of sh*t! You denounced President Trump’s claims and told the media and Georgians it was a perfect election,” Kerik said. “You knew about the corruption and failures on November 7, and you did absolutely nothing about it. You and @GovKemp should resign immediately.”

The analysis of Fulton County got a major boost when Fox News host Tucker Carlson featured it in a segment Wednesday, reporting that the group VoterGA found at least three dozen batches of mail-in ballots containing 4,255 votes were added more than once to audit results, with nearly 3,400 of the votes going to now-President Joe Biden.

The analytical team studying the ballot images also turned up seven audit tabulation sheets they believe were faked and thus allegedly contain falsified vote tallies.

According to reports, Raffensperger was critical of Fulton County during the June 2020 primary election, where precinct closures resulted in voters waiting in line for hours, voting machine problems arose, as did complications due to the pandemic.

In effect, these reports support Kerik’s assertion that the secretary of state did know of problems going into the November election.

“Every time we think we’ve reached the peak of Fulton’s election mismanagement issues, more comes to light,” Raffensperger said in a statement this week. “I’ve been calling for change in Fulton since day one. Maintaining public confidence in our elections begins in Fulton County.”

Yet, he disputed Trump’s insistence that there were problems with the results.

“He’s coming up short on the election, he won’t be re-elected, and I know that he’s not pleased with how the results went in other states,” Raffensperger said in January. “I’m very confident in the results we have here in Georgia. And that’s the cold hard truth.”

Social media users were fully on board with the police commissioner… here’s a small sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
