Georgia Secretary of State: “Those 40,000 Voter Registration Files Never Existed”
Black and Hispanic residents of Georgia are less likely to be registered to vote than their white counterparts. Utilizing that tried-and-true American tradition of “find a need and fill it,” a nonprofit group called the New Georgia Project decided to correct this problem by registering 80,000 new voters in Georgia.
And now 40,000 of these voter registration forms are missing.
And by the strangest coincidence, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp just happens to be furious about the whole concept of them swarthy minorities being allowed to vote. Last month he launched a fraud investigation into the New Georgia Project's voter registration drive. And two months before that, Brian Kemp said:
“...In closing I just wanted to tell you real quick, after we get through this runoff, you know the Democrats are working hard, and all these stories about them, you know, registering all these minority voters that are out there and others that are sitting on the sidelines, if they can do that, they can win these elections in November...”
Around that same time, Georgia state Senator Fran Millar complained that early voting was making it too easy for minorities to vote, and said he was “investigating if there is any way to stop this action.”
But again, there is absolutely no connection between the blatant bigotry of Georgia's Powers That Be and the fact that 40,000 voter registration files just happen to be “missing.”
Move along. Nothing to see here.
