According to RealClear Investigations, state investigators “quietly broke the seal on one suspicious box and inspected the hundreds of votes it contained for signs of fraud” under the instruction of Frances Watson, the chief investigator for the secretary of state’s office.

The ballots in question were a central part of concerns surrounding the legitimacy of Fulton County’s vote in the 2020 election. As such, Superior Court Judge Brian Amero placed them under a protective order in January.

Nonetheless, Watson admitted she sent employees to inspect batches of sealed ballots earlier this year and said the investigators “didn’t find anything,” RCI reported.

VoterGA.org founder Garland Favorito, who is a veteran poll watcher in Georgia, said the state officials did not inform Amero that they inspected the sealed ballots. The watchdogs responsible for suing the state to inspect the ballots were also reportedly kept in the dark.
