The funniest thing I have heard the past few weeks is that Groups are using Stacey Abrams to teach them how to win in a state she lost by 55,000 votes.
The second funniest thing I’ve heard is that her group, New Georgia Project is being investigated for trying to register ineligible voters for the Runoff elections.
Abrams and New Georgia Project have denied that they are doing anything illegal. But they have not explained why they are sending blank ballots to New York. Voting illegally in Georgia is a felony.
There are other groups who are also trying to get people to vote illegally.
One group is telling college students they can change their address to Georgia and then change it back after the election.
The only problem with that plan is that it is illegal but the Democrats won’t go to prison if caught but the students can be.
The other groups named by Georgia’s Secretary of State are America Votes, who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994 and “Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter.
The New Georgia Project denies the charges:
An emailed press release from the organization stated:
Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, resurrected a tired and false claim against the New Georgia Project’s legitimate efforts to register eligible Georgians to participate in elections in a press conference held Monday morning, November 30th.
Nse Ufot, Executive Director of the New Georgia Project said:
As Georgians are turning out in record numbers to have their voices heard at the polls, the Secretary of State is resorting to desperate attempts to smear law-abiding organizations and scare eligible Georgians from registering to vote in critical upcoming elections. We will not be deterred.
This attack on our organization comes at a time when people across the country have witnessed the strength of our program and the collective power of a new Georgia electorate that embraces a system of inclusivity and opportunity for all Georgians. The timing is not accidental.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s (R) has announced that his office is investigating these groups to see if they are breaking Georgia state law. I have little faith in him but perhaps there is someone in his office with cojones.
