John Solomon’s site “Just The News” has obtained what is said to be a 29-page memorandum prepared by an Atlanta firm called “Seven Hills Strategies” (SHS) which identified — in real-time — problems observed by representatives of the firm as it provided logistical support to Fulton County election workers on Election Day 2020 and the days following. The memo is written in the form of a timeline of events and observations as they happened, laid out in chronological sequence, with the date and time entries of the events described.

This story is going to, by necessity, be a hit-and-run job, as I’m not able to fully capture the totality of the contents of the memo here. RedState also touched on it here on Friday.

Let me begin with this caution: I cannot vouch for the authenticity of this document. It surprised me — to put it mildly — that this document exists, yet has remained secret for this long. Until its provenance is better known, and we know more about the company that created it, I would say let’s be interested in its contents, but not adopt them uncritically without more information about where it came from.

It might in some way explain the change in attitude reflected by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger two weeks ago, when the Henry County Judge first granted the motion in a lawsuit seeking an audit of the election to allow an examination of copies of the Fulton County absentee ballots.

Allowing this audit provides another layer of transparency and citizen engagement.”

If his comments had been made in the aftermath of the publication of this Memorandum, the language would not have been much different.  The memorandum appears to be a documentary record of the kind of “longstanding history of election mismanagement” that Raffensperger made reference to.

Here are some highlights, as
