A Democrat that used to be a Georgia state representative mobilized supporters to stop concerned citizens from verifying the authenticity of the presidential election.
Former Georgia Minority Leader Stacey Abrams is using her so-called Fair Fight voting rights group to prevent concerned Georgians from confirming all ballots cast during the November election were lawful.
Fair Fight has confirmed it is launching a legal action to prevent True the Vote from challenging the outcome of the presidential race.
“We will not allow out-of-state agitators to violate the law and disenfranchise lawful Georgia voters in an 11th hour, desperate attempt to create chaos, burden county boards, and tip the election,” Fair Fight said on Facebook.
The voting rights group accused True the Vote of terrifying Democratic Party supporters by verifying who actually won the election.
“True the Vote’s challenges are meant to intimidate voters and undermine our electoral process,” Fair Fight said. “Georgia has an ugly history of voter suppressors intimidating voters of color, and we will not tolerate efforts to suppress the vote.”
The group also ordered Georgians who support True the Vote to permanently vacate the Peach State, even though they live locally.
Fair Fight warns, ‘Our message to True the Vote: get out of Georgia’
“Our message to True The Vote: get out of Georgia and leave our voters alone,” Fair Fight said. “Georgia voters have the right to combat these shameful and abusive tactics in federal court, and we look forward to making the case that these challenges violate federal law.”
True the Vote maintains questioning the integrity of the election process is completely within the law, and concerned citizens have the right to challenge the state for quickly declaring Joe Biden the winner.
“As expected, the left did not wait long to try and stop our efforts to ensure a free and fair election in the Georgia runoffs,” True the Vote said according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Our work here in Georgia is only the beginning of our efforts nationwide to restore faith and confidence in our election system.”
A total of 364,541 elector challenges were recently submitted on behalf of Georgia voters from all 159 counties. This theoretically allows concerned citizens to challenge the eligibility of any other voters in their respective counties, if “probable cause exists to show that the challenged voter does not meet the qualifications legally required to cast a ballot.”
“Everyone pitched in, this is the power of citizen engagement and the core of what True the Vote exists to do in our pursuit of free, fair, and secure elections,” True the Vote founding President Catherine Engelbrecht said in a statement. “It is our hope that this historic challenge marks the beginning of the great awakening of American voters to serve our democracy by getting involved in the process.”
The great awakening
True the Vote found that 124,114 registered voters no longer lived in the county they voted in, and 240,427 voters were not even Georgia residents. The group encouraged more concerned citizens to report any election irregularities on the True the Vote website.
“I have said since Election Day that I must follow the law in the execution of our elections, and I have also encouraged Georgians to report any suspected problems for my office to investigate,” GOP Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a statement. “Though federal law restricts our ability to update our voter registration lists, the elector challenge is a vehicle under our law to ensure voter integrity. I support any effort that builds faith in our election system that follows the proper legal procedure.”
An elector challenge does not immediately remove voter names from the registry and affected voters will still be provided an opportunity to prove they were eligible to vote.
