Georgia’s Senate seat is being vacated by retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss and is also one of two Republican seats still in the RealClearPolitics ‘toss-up’ column. The polls are still well within the margin of error, with a mere 3-point advantage for Republican David Purdue in RCP’s average.
All the more reason that voter registration should be scrutinized very closely ahead of the November 4th elections says Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, reports Foxnews‘ John Roberts.
The well-known pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Rev. Raphael Warnock, has lobbed some incendiary charges against Kemp for his recent subpoena issued to the New Georgia Project, with which Warnock is closely associated, for dozens of cases of verified fraudulent voter registration.
With obvious racial overtones, Warnock fired at Kemp:
“You don’t have to wear a hood — you don’t have to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan to be engaged in voter suppression. We know voter suppression when we see it.”
That the race between Purdue and his Democrat opponent Michelle Nun is so close makes new, largely minority voter registration all too important for Democrat-aligned organizations.
This is of course why looking at those registrations closely is so important, retorted Kemp:
“There’s somebody clearly doing something wrong. And we want to figure out who that is, and try to make sure that we stop that. And bring charges against those people. Any time that you’re talking about forgery and fraud in Georgia law, it’s certainly very serious.”
