They were doing things eagerly but incorrectly.” 

That was a judgment rendered in a Georgia election monitor’s report last year detailing what the investigator said were a series of problems brought on by improperly trained temporary staffers handling the absentee ballot scanning operation in Fulton County. 

Fulton, Georgia’s largest county, was a key to Joe Biden’s 2020 win in the state and, ultimately, the nation. The county has long been suspected as a locus of election mismanagement and incompetence. Last year’s election in Fulton — which, as with the rest of the United States, included mass absentee balloting on an unprecedented scale — has continued to draw scrutiny for apparent failures of election security and protocol.

Several recent Just the News reports revealed major data issues with Fulton County’s election management as well as significant and persistent security concerns highlighted by a state-appointed investigator who oversaw the Fulton absentee ballot operation. 

Among the issues underscored by that investigator, Carter Jones, were problems with temporary staffers recruited by Fulton County to manage numerous aspects of its election. 

“Some temp staff are down to help and over-eager to do so,” Jones wrote at one point in his report. “[N]eed them to help less bc they’re making extra problems.”

In multiple cases, Jones reported on what appeared to be tension between Fulton County employees and temporary staffers, specifically those employed by Happy Faces, an Atlanta-area personnel group. 

“Shaye had issues with them not following her direction b/c they said that they were taking order from the Happy Faces rep (who was not fully trained on correct procedure) and not her,” Jones wrote, claiming that the confusion had resulted in workers doing things “eagerly but incorrectly.”

At one point Jones alluded to what appeared to be a potential security issue brought about by Happy Faces workers. “Learned that waiting until lunch was a powerplay by Ralph because he didn’t trust the Happy Faces people,” he wrote. “He had a big problem with them fixing the issue w/ Abbey’s box away from the cameras this morning.”
