Fulton County election supervisor Wandrea Shaye Moss, who was identified as one of the individuals who appeared to continue to tabulate ballots in Georgia last year after observes left, has been subpoenaed in relation to the election.
The story: The subpoena asks Moss to produce evidence, as part of a civil case, related to the 2020 election in November. The document shows that Moss is scheduled to make an appearance for a deposition on June 10 “for purposes of discovery” and notes that investigators will question Moss until the “examination is completed.”
“All parties and counsel are invited to attend and examine the witness,” the subpoena reads.
Specifically, Moss is asked to provide the attorney’s office with a thumb drive that they say contains “communications … made and received” by Moss “relating to the Nov. 3, 2020, general election” that can be found on any electronic device that she possessed and used last year. The subpoena asks Moss to turn over all of the electronic devices that she used in the period between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of last year.
How we got here: Moss was one of the people who was identified via a viral video from the State Farm Arena that purportedly showed suspicious vote-counting activity. The other election worker that was seen in the clip, which contributed to claims of election fraud in Georgia including from former President Trump’s team, was Ruby Freeman, Moss’s mother.
The video showed that election workers appeared to pull what was initially described as a “suitcase” from under a table and started counting the ballots. It was initially claimed that poll watchers were sent home due to a pipe leak that was later fixed.
Local news outlet Alive 11 noted in December last year that state investigators determined that the ballots were legally counted and that what some described as a “suitcase” was actually a standard ballot container.
“What the video shows is that they have pulled out plastic bins from underneath the desks. Those are bins that they keep under their desks near the scanners,” Fulton County’s elections director Richard Barron said at the time.
The outlet said in their report that both the media and the poll watchers were told the counting was done for the night and failed to give notice that the county would continue to count ballots.
Investigators also said that the pipe burst and the events on the surveillance video happened 17 hours apart and not on the same night.
The National Public Radio reported earlier this month that they both have been on the receiving end of threats after the video. Moss was in charge of overseeing part of Fulton County’s mail-in ballot operation. She claimed that they needed help with counting ballots and hired her mother as a temp worker.
