At their Meeting today, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners denied the appointment of Jason Frazier after confirming Mike Heekin to the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections.
In comments before the vote, Commissioner Ellis admitted that he received emails from "constituents" asking that Frazier not be appointed. He stated that after some research it was found that these “constituents” were in “no less than 20 States.” This shows obvious evidence of people outside Georgia attempting to influence Fulton County.
Mr. Frazier would have replaced Mark Wingate whose term expires at the end of this month.
Mr. Frazier is a well-known advocate for Election Integrity, having brought thousands of errors and duplicate registrations to Fulton County's attention over the past year.
Fultons documents regarding the Board of Registration and Elections further confirm that the Fulton County Board: "shall be appointed by the governing authority of Fulton County from nominations made by the chairperson of the county executive committee...."
Sources close to the matter question whether the Fulton County Commission is somehow afraid of what Mr. Frazier might discover or be able to confirm once appointed to the Board of Elections. They speculate that this might explain their willingness to go against the law and their own governing documents.
The Georgia Record will continue to track this story.
