Timestamps and text messages debunk the idea that Fulton County had to stop counting votes for an extended period of time at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena on Election Day.
Fulton County claimed that a burst water main in the arena led to a four-hour delay in counting votes, and that “Pipe-Gate” somehow necessitated days of additional time for vote-counting even though none of the ballots got wet.
State Farm Arena claimed in its statement that the leak occurred at 6:07 AM, and that “Within 2 hours, repairs were complete.”
But State Farm Arena did not tweet its statement about the incident until 9:19 PM ET. With President Trump in the lead in Georgia, all of a sudden the notoriously pro-Democrat pro-Stacey Abrams Fulton County had to stretch out its vote-counting.
