Late breaking news on this Tuesday evening. The New Georgia Project, founded by House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams received subpoenas today from the Secretary of State’s office after an initial investigation showed “significant illegal activity.”

    Meh. A bunch of sound and fury for the usual chaff that comes up when you have a big voter registration drive and pay people to sign folks up. Usually you get someone who’s lazy and registers fake names, but it doesn’t really matter–Mickey Mouse and James T Kirk ain’t showing up in November to cast a ballot either way, and that kind of fraud is almost unheard of. Plus, Georgia has a strong voter ID law to prevent that kind of thing anyway. This is as much about drowning the organization in subpoenas so they can’t do their job and getting Fran Millar’s idiotic commentary out of the news cycle as it is actually accomplishing anything.

    Then again, if we’re being consistent, I expect a whole lot of posts of hand wringing about how dysfunctional Georgia’ voter registration process is, and the Secretary of State’s website, and how the system is all discombobulated, while whatever elected officials that have a relationship with the New Georgia Election Project go gingerly unmentioned.

      We had one election where my Voter ID was scanned in, but I don’t think it has happened recently. If it is not scanned in, the poll workers can vote in the place of Mickey Mouse, etc. In fact, I read in one national center-left pub that the obvious voting for those on the rolls who had not shown up was to detract from what really mattered – poll workers voting for the absent. Scanning in Voter ID should stop that.

    Well he certainly convinced me.
