FRESH CUTS

Voter’s gamble in a casino where election officials rig the game

In Georgia, the Secretary of State is believed to be holding up processing 51,000 voter registrations acquired and submitted by an organization called New Georgia Project, a left leaning group led by Rev. Raphael Warnock of Ebenezer Baptists Church (Martin Luther King, Jr’s former pulpit) and House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams (D-Atlanta). In total, the group has submitted 85,000 forms from across Georgia.

The reason for the hold up of voter registration forms, according to Secretary Brian Kemp’s office, is “The presence of” 25 “confirmed forgeries… Each instance of forgery can result in multiple felonies and the Office of the Secretary of State has a constitutional obligation to pursue every illegal act to the full extent of the law.”
