Cobb County responds to second video circulated by Lin Wood

Cobb County responded to a second video making the rounds on social media after it was tweeted by Atlanta attorney Lin Wood.

Much of the social media commentary in question, including the tweets by Wood, accuses the county of illegally shredding evidence of voting fraud in the November 3 general election. The county had issued a response to an earlier similar video tweeted by Wood purporting to show the destruction of evidence at Jim Miller Park..

The latest video shows a truck from a shredding company loading documents (see Wood’s tweets at the bottom of this article), but the video does not clearly show what is being loaded into the truck.

Wood was in the news last Thursday, November 19, when his attempt to block certification of Georgia’s election results was dismissed by Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg.


Wood’s Twitter profile contains the hashtag #WWG1WGA, associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory movement.

Cobb County Communications Director Ross Cavitt wrote the following about the latest video:

The video purportedly shows a shredding company at the building housing the main office for Cobb Elections on Whitlock Avenue in Marietta.  This building houses many other Cobb County governmental offices, and the document disposal company was at the building as part of a regularly-scheduled visit to the Cobb Tax Commissioner’s office.  No items from Cobb Elections were involved.

The ballots and documents involved in the recount effort are currently located at the Jim R. Miller Event Center several miles away.

The tweets from Lin Wood

Wood posted the following two tweets today.

The Courier sent a second request for comment to the email address Lin Wood posted on his website for inquiries about his activities involving absentee ballots.

As of the writing of this article he has not responded, and if we get a response we’ll update this article.

  1. as an officer of the court and member of the bar, mr. lin has a professional obligation to act in good faith. at a bare bones minimum he should be facing professional sanctions for this dangerous conduct.

  2. Someone needs to answer the question: Why would have a shredder truck at that location during an election under any circumstances????? That would be right up there with a big bonfire in the parking lot. Are you kidding me? The people from the company should be subpoenaed and whoever ordered the truck should be polygraphed. THIS is why people have so little faith in the election process.

    According to “Mother Jones,” Wood is being sued by several colleagues who allege:

    “Wood repeatedly emailed them at odd hours and reiterated that he was behaving according to God’s will and would not pay them. ‘God has given me permission to be profane in this email,’ he wrote early one morning around 3:45 a.m. ‘You damn dumb m*****f**kers…God Almighty told me to get you back to where you belong. Broke and essentially homeless.’

    He continued: ‘You all better get on your knees and pray to Almighty God that He now asks me to show you mercy. If he does, I will show it, if he does not, I will deliver a fiery judgment against you on earth. Who the f**k did you think you were dealing with? You were screwing around me with [sic], but I was someone else in disguise. You in fact have been screwing around with God Almighty. I am not God. You lied when you told others that I thought I was…I am L. Lin Wood—the sole member of L. Lin Wood, P.C. The architect of the most masterful and powerful Valentine’s Day massacre known in American history. The last one killed seven. Mine will ruin many more before it is over. Deservedly so.”

    That sounds crazy to me, but maybe it’s sane by QAnon standards.
