Yet another Democrat candidate, yet another corruption scandal. It’s almost as if the party was willing to sell its soul to gain power or something, eh?
Long before COVID came to town, the Democrats were pushing hard to water down the security protocols that screen invalid voters out of the system. It was right there in Nancy Pelosi’s first House Bill after getting her hands back on the gavel. And it was all under the guise of stopping ‘voter suppression’.
(Republicans have to get far better at calling out the Democrats when they use buzzwords to massage the narrative to make corrupt intent seem like the defense of justice, but that’s a story for another day.)
When COVID arose as a guise under which the mail system could be used to bypass Georgia’s strong voter ID rules, (something that was mirrored in many other states), certain interest groups wasted no time in exploiting the new lowered standards.
Not surprisingly, Stacey Abrams — who claims to have been ‘robbed’ in her election despite losing by some 40,000 or more votes — helped spearhead the initiative using the mail system to work around these safeguards.
Unfortunately for her, all the attention Trump has thrown at the irregularities in the vote have made exploiting the system harder to get away with.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has launched investigations into several groups, including one founded by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, for seeking to “aggressively” register “ineligible, out-of-state, or deceased voters” before the state’s Jan. 5 Senate runoff elections.
Raffensperger’s office on Wednesday said the investigations are into groups including America Votes, Vote Forward and The New Georgia Project — which was founded by Abrams and previously chaired by Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock.
…Raffensperger said earlier this week that America Votes “is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994.”
Vote Forward, he said, “attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia.” He also spotlighted The New Georgia Project, “who sent voter registration applications to New York City.”
The secretary of state also pinpointed “Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, who is telling college students in Georgia that they can change their residency to Georgia and then change it back after the election.”
Raffensperger’s office also has 23 investigators working on 250 open investigations into “credible claims of illegal voting” and election law violations, he said.
According to the Georgia Code, false registration, i.e. someone who registers to vote knowing that they do not possess the qualifications required by law, is a felony and can be punished by between one and 10 years in prison and/or up to a $100,000 fine.
Raffensperger’s office on Wednesday detailed several instances in which the Abrams-Warnock associated group, The New Georgia Project, have allegedly solicited voters living out of state and people who have passed away. Warnock was chairman of the group until January. –FoxNews
Yes, this is the same Warnock who is running for Senate, and who has had some really sketchy sermons in praise of Socialism and denouncing military service.
This is by no means the first accusation of Abrams having her integrity questioned. See the group fined $50k for dumping a quarter-million dollars’ worth of unaccountable ‘dark money’ into her Gubernatorial campaign as one for-instance.
Is the Democrat talent pool so shallow that they can’t vet the corruptocrats out of their system? Or are the Democrats so corrupt that such practices are considered one of the ‘perks’ of office?
It would certainly explain why so many elected officials and civil ‘servants’ make their millions during (or right after) time spent in government.
