Did I think 2020 was the most ideal and historic option in the history of the universe?
Well, evidently not, since Richard Barron, the director of the Fulton County Election, was just shot.
Barron was fired for his handling of the 2020 election along with the dismissal of a whistleblower, according to sources.
Fulton County Election board votes 3-2 in public session to fire Election Director Rick Barron.

From the long lines to vote in June to former President Donald Trump’s baseless fraud charges in November, Fulton County attracted national coverage during the 2020 election.
Fulton County attracted criticism for the processing of absentee ballots and hour-long waiting issues in the election.
But for converting State Farm Arena and later Mercedes-Benz Stadium Stadium into major early voting locations, the county also received acclaim.
Employees of the election department sent a letter supporting Barron.
“Fulton County Commissioner Khadijah Abdur-Rahman said in a statement released Tuesday that she “wholeheartedly disagrees” with the recommendation of the election board.
If the Board of Commissioners (BOC) receives the recommendation, I would not vote to uphold their motion that Mr. Barron be dismissed by the BOC.’
It seems that Republicans are not pleased that so many citizens of Fulton County legally voted to elect Democrats in November and January, she said.
At a meeting on Wednesday morning, the Fulton County Commission is scheduled to take up the matter themselves and vote on whether to approve or deny the shooting.
It’s quite curious how such changes come months after the election, and at a time when President Trump wouldn’t have helped.
