There has been to date no evidence available to support the supposed "burst pipe" was the cause of a delay in ballot counting in Atlanta's State Farm Arena on election night, Nov. 3.
"Beyond the lack of documentary evidence of the inspection or repair of a ruptured pipe, we are being asked to believe that there is not one single picture of this allegedly ruptured pipe, at a time and in a place where virtually everything is recorded and documented," commented Paul Dzikowski, a lawyer in Georgia.
The "burst pipe" incident is one of several allegedly problematic and suspicious incidents sparking lawsuits from various allies of the Trump campaign throughout the state.
According to news.com.au, an open records request was sent by Dzikowski on Monday to the organization that owns the State Farm Arena in an effort to get to the bottom of the issue, saying:
"Please produce … all 'public records' related to the burst pipe at State Farm Arena that occurred on or about November 3, 2020, which impacted the counting of ballots by Fulton County authorities, including and not limited to internal and external communications with any person(s), communications with Fulton County Board of Registrations and Elections, memoranda, notes, work orders, requisitions, invoices, repair records, and all other public records."
The email was answered approximately 30 minutes later by the Executive Director of the Atlanta-Fulton County Recreation Authority, one Kerry Stewart. The email attached a string of text messages, claiming it was "the only document responsive to your request." The texts message read as follows:
"I just heard a water pipe burst at SFA that will cause vote count delay. Has this affected the AFCRA office? I think they were counting votes next door."
"No sir – it was highly exaggerated – it was a slow leak that caused about an hour and a half delay. We contained it quickly – it did not spread – we just wanted to protect the equipment."
The first speaker, according to Dzikowski, is believed to be Stewart himself. The second speaker has been identified as Geoffrey Stiles, the Vice President of Facilities for the Atlanta Hawks.
The State of Georgia has currently agreed to conduct a recount of all votes by hand.
