A voting registration group founded by prominent Democrat Stacey Abrams and chaired by Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock is under investigation for voter registration misconduct. On Wednesday, the Georgia Election Board voted unanimously to move ahead with the investigation into The New Georgia Project.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Warnock, a Democrat elected last month to the U.S. Senate, is named as a respondent in the case because he was listed as the CEO for the New Georgia Project at the time,” The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported, later adding that the organization claims that its own documents misidentified Warnock as the CEO when he was board chairman.
“Representatives of the New Georgia Project hand-delivered 1,268 voter registration applications to the Gwinnett County elections office beyond the time allowed,” AJC added. “State election rules require voter registration organizations to submit completed applications within 10 days after they were received from the voter.”
AJC noted that another case involving the group that Abrams created remains open. The case alleges “contractors for the New Georgia Project forged signatures and submitted incomplete forms.”
While some may see the investigation as politically motivated, it’s worth noting that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger launched an investigation of President Donald Trump’s phone call with Georgia election officials earlier this year in which Trump urged them to “find” additional votes. It’s also worth noting that those same officials repeatedly rebuffed claims from Trump that there was widespread voter fraud in the state.
A separate criminal investigation of Trump’s phone call with GA Secretary of State Raffensperger was also launched by Fulton County officials.[KEEP READING: GA Prosecutors Open Criminal Investigation into Trump Call]
