Sources claim that the Fulton County Election Board has voted to fire Richard Barron, citing complete dysfunction in the 2020 elections.
They’re doing this NOW?
Why not DURING the election? According to a PBS report which came out MONTHS before the election, the entire state of Georgia was going to have major election issues.
This is before any allegations of widespread voter fraud or any of that.
Fulton county, which was allegedly plagued by massive voter fraud issues during the election, was one of the most heinous offenders, and now their election board has taken action.
The board voted to fire Richard Barron, the election director, citing all the dysfunction that was the 2020 election.
A little late, but at least the truth is slowly coming out…..
Take a look:
“The person who is responsible for our success,” the staff wrote in a letter to the board, “is current Director Richard Barron who has shown his ability to guide, motivate, steer and maintain the course of integrity, honesty, and fairness,” the staff wrote in their letter to the board.
Still, Democratic appointee Vernetta Keith Nuridden, and Republican appointees Mark Wingate and Dr. Kathleen Ruth voted to fire Barron. In contrast, Democratic appointee Aaron Johnson and board chair Mary Carole Cooney, an appointee of Fulton County commission chair Robb Pitts, voted in support of Barron.
On a Zoom call, Barron sat quietly, never speaking, while the board and the public discussed his job performance. He declined a request to comment for this story.
“We have just a history of systemic problems,” said Nuridden. “I know if it was a popularity contest, Rick will win hands down. You know, I think it’s just not that.”
Nuridden’s vote to fire Barron clashed with earlier statements she made in support of him and the department’s work.
The Daily Wire had this to say:
Barron has not yet been removed from his position. According to attorneys for the election board, the county board of commissioners must approve the election board’s decision to fire Barron before it is official. When the board of commissioners will consider whether to follow through on firing Barron is unknown.
Fulton County was the center of several nationally scrutinized errors and unfortunate events during the election, leading to allegations of election manipulation. The county has historically had trouble running smooth elections, prompting the state and county to agree that in 2020, Fulton County’s ballot canvassing on election day would be independently monitored by a state-appointed supervisor.
