Tucker Carlson took on the question of voter fraud being raised in a lawsuit in Fulton County, Georgia last night. We’ve covered some of the issues in the past, but Carlson explains more.
Tucker with the shot heard around the world:
Yes, there was meaningful voter fraud in Georgia.

“At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double counted in Fulton County. That’s a total of more than 4000 votes. Those numbers come from a group called VoterGA, which along with Bob Cheeley sued to get them. The final tally from the double counts we know about amounts to more than 3300 votes for Joe Biden and 865 votes for Donald Trump,” Carlson said.
Voter GA held a press conference on Tuesday and presented some of their findings.
Carlson also pointed to surveillance video which he said showed ballots being repeatedly scanned twice.
Carlson noted that the “strongly left-of center Atlanta-Journal Constitution” agreed that there were ballots that were scanned twice.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution did acknowledge that there were “some ballots” that were initially counted twice.
Digital ballot images made public under Georgia’s new voting law show nearly 200 ballots — including one for West — that election officials initially scanned two times last fall before a recount. There’s no indication any vote for president was counted more than once in official results.
The discovery of identical ballots provides evidence to back up allegations of problems in the presidential election, but on a relatively small scale that had no bearing on the final certified count. A group of voters seeking to prove the election was fraudulent say double-counting is just the beginning of what they hope to find.
The plaintiffs said they want to be able to do an inspection of the 147,000 absentee ballots.
“If we’re finding this in Fulton County, we’re probably going to find it throughout the state. The question is, why did it happen?” said David Cross, an investment manager working with the plaintiffs. “The simple fact that it happened and we found it here means that it probably occurred elsewhere.”
Carlson said that Voter GA had tried to get the audit tally sheets but Fulton County wouldn’t release more than 100,000 of them initially. But Voter GA finally got some of them. They said that they found 7 audit tally sheets that were falsified. For example, a batch containing 59 ballot images for Joe Biden and 42 for Donald Trump was reported as 100 for Joe Biden and zero for Trump. The seven batches of ballot images had 705 votes — 554 for Biden, 140 for Trump, and 11 for Jorgensen. However, the tally sheets showed a higher vote total and had 100 percent of the votes going to Biden – 850 for Biden, 0 for Trump, and 0 for Jorgensen. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution doesn’t address that tally sheet problem in their article on the matter.
Carlson notes other issues but makes the greater point that the way to quell concerns is to address the questions, not to shut them down.
