I guess next you're going to tell me water is wet. Reply Gregor Resch says: October 12, 2018 at 2:29 am The GOP White Trash Machine is playing their tricks, time to put them into cages. Reply DefChef says: October 12, 2018 at 2:31 am This Kemp guy should be purged out of the race for doing this illegal tactic! Gerrymandering is one thing, but to purge people off the voting is Asinine Reply Juliett A says: October 12, 2018 at 2:52 am Kemp needs to be arrested and charged with vote tampering. Reply 1111Pel says: October 12, 2018 at 3:24 am PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER, your state needs you to over see their vote on 11-6-18. Apparently the Kemp is corrupt and is denying Americans their right to vote. Reply Michael K, CPA says: October 12, 2018 at 4:04 am Keep America Great !!! Vote Republican !!! Reply Laci says: October 12, 2018 at 4:18 am The exaggerated claim is stating this law was passed for voter integrity. There were 6 confirmed cases, nation wide, of voter fraud. Even if we are missing 100x that number, we are talking 600 cases of voter fraud among 250 million voters. This number is peanuts and a fraction of 1% of all voters. Claiming voter integrity by suppressing the vote of 53,000 people is like claiming that Thor exists because we don't see frost giants; it's absolutely ridiculous and a blatant attempt to give an edge toward the Republican candidates. It's not a coincidence that 70% of these possibly suppressed votes are African Americans, especially when you add in the fact that only about 30% of the total voters are in the same demographic. If we allow this to happen or sit by quietly while it does, we are spitting in the faces our founding fathers and turning our backs on those who have fought and died while defending the freedom that grants us the right to vote in the first place. Reply subliminal says: October 12, 2018 at 4:26 am This guy is flaunting the right to vote he needs to go. Reply Xyz Same says: October 12, 2018 at 5:08 am Take your ID so you can cast the provisional ballot – which will NOT BE COUNTED anyway. – they forgot that little info. Reply tilog says: October 12, 2018 at 5:19 am A lot of GOP candidates know they can't win unless they cheat, so, they cheat. Reply laynn 10 says: October 12, 2018 at 5:43 am Thank you Kanye West for educating the African Americans to the fact that the liberals want to keep them from succeeded. It is their way of controlling. Reply laynn 10 says: October 12, 2018 at 5:49 am Those who are on hold certainly have time to go their county's voters registration office and make certain they can vote. This on them to make certain all i's are dotted and t's are crossed.Unbelievable how you reporters don't say what I have just stated above.Let 53,000 take a day off work and straighten out their voting business. They still have time. Reply Ali Baebee says: October 12, 2018 at 5:52 am this is so disgraceful. i am voting and volunteering for stacy 🙂 Reply Xyz Same says: October 12, 2018 at 5:54 am Democrats should start to use the word Republican election stealing – the Rs are not afraid to claim that 3 million people voted illegally and what not. or they claim voter fraud. Reply Deanna Delmar says: October 12, 2018 at 5:57 am Is there anyone who can stop all the GOP voter suppression? The GOP THINKS THEY ARE ENTITLED to “win” and destroy ballots (2016) and delete voter registrations and deny voter registrations. The electoral college is one more election stage that is controlled (2016). And nothing is done. And they wonder why “We The People “ believe what we see and hear and experience.

Reply AnarchoHumanism says: October 12, 2018 at 9:54 am Remember when this happened in Florida with all the hacked diebold boxes, and the Supreme court chose our president for us?! Ya, that actually happened here, not Somalia, here in the USA! Fun times, with rich old racist grandpas running our government and making all the choices for us! Reply subliminal says: October 12, 2018 at 10:21 am So they can throw the votes away like Ohio did and Blackburn sent out fake write in ballots to old people that didn't count and not a thing happened intimidation to Democrates in Cleveland all during Kerry Campaign the GOP stack the deck I'm sick of them cheating every damm chance they get. One vote one person 5 Dems 5 Republicans on Supreme court Senators who represent the whole US not just the Trumpies a seperateJustice system a separate FBI police quit taking party lines talk about no democracy Vote these people out stand up for your rights Reply WPG S says: October 12, 2018 at 10:29 am Of course the gops don't want those Votes counted because it'd mean certain defeat. But, if they thought they voted for them they'd be counted and go off if they weren't. Reply MG says: October 12, 2018 at 10:55 am The office just happens to do a "review" a month before an election and it effects the only the opponent's votes. Yeah, not suspicious at all. Reply Michael Dunson says: October 12, 2018 at 11:02 am Why isn't anybody talking about the GOP bill that is stopping thousand of native Americans from voting in the upcoming election and the conservative control Supreme Court refuse to hear the case this week. All across the country the Republicans are doing everything legal or illegal to stop people of color from voting. Yet the democrat party is silence on this, they should be shouting it from the roof tops. Reply TehVorLoN says: October 12, 2018 at 11:22 am The simple answer to that last question is: Republicans don't want people to vote, because they would not win elections otherwise. Their ideas are not popular, so they have to rely on manipulation and dirty tricks. If only you journalists would finally call out their lies instead of always being fair to both sides. Reply Dale Cox says: October 12, 2018 at 11:34 am Arrest Kemp for voter fraud! Reply R Robin says: October 12, 2018 at 11:36 am FBI needs to investigate this voter interference! FBI help the USA!

Native American votes took her over to top. The state passed a voter suppression law requiring a street address which many Native Americans don't have on the reservation. They use post office boxes as mail is not delivered rurally. During the primaries they were allowed to vote, but in the midterms they are not. Republican super majority in power in the state legislature. Reply Simon Morino says: October 12, 2018 at 2:54 pm Lock him up for corruption. Reply gap949 says: October 12, 2018 at 3:02 pm Yup !

Reply Joe Jow says: October 12, 2018 at 4:08 pm 53k registrations on hold, you can count the instances of voter fraud nationally on one hand. Penalty for vote fraud is 5 years prison, why no arrest??? you would think republicans would want fraudsters off roll permanently while creating jobs.

The Republican Party has no ethics, morals or platform, so they need to steal executions, through Gerry meandering, cheating and lying! Reply winesap2 says: October 12, 2018 at 8:11 pm This is just the typical and expected anti-democratic dirty tricks that are necessary for Republiturds to win elections. They can't win on their ideas, because their ideas are backwards and unpopular, so they have to win by cheating. It's how they control governments around the country. Any Democrat in Kemp's position would recognize the conflict of interest and recuse themselves. Republiturds are the ultimate swamp monsters, standing for their corporate cronies over the will and needs of the people.

Reply showlogicprod says: October 13, 2018 at 5:25 pm Why did Kemp scam last years Ossoff/Handel congressional election, and never had to answer for it? Why did he put links to HIS campaign sites, FB etc on the GA voter site, until he was caught and forced to take the links off? Why didn't he resign as sec of state as any honest person would do? Sec of state CONTROLS THE ELECTION that he is repub guv candidate in!!! Why did he try to push through (he failed) closing 7 of 9 voting precincts in majority black Randolph county? Why is he trying to slime through not allowing GA citizens overseas to vote on the GA voting site? Why has he closed hundreds of voting precincts in only the poorest areas? And dropped hundreds of thousands from voter rolls… mostly poor, and blacks… including 50K+ recently… 70% of whom are blacks. Most corrupt sec of state I've seen in 44+ years living in GA…. the LAST thing GA needs in office. Can't win legally, on your own ideas? Get another job OUTSIDE of political office. Wanna elect repubs? Fine. Get some HONEST ones in there. Abrams is the right one for the job for we The People.
