Georgia is a national focus again as a hotbed of political issues. State Representative Democrat Park Cannon was arrested while protesting Governor Kemp signing a Voter Rights Bill she opposed. The arrest Thursday night happened just weeks after two top Democrat activists, one now a US Senator, became the focus of a voter fraud investigation.
And all three of these people are tied together with Democrat Joe Biden, who allegedly won the state of Georgia in the 2020 Presidential election, fraught with reckless voter errors and a total lack of transparency, adding another layer of suspicion about how he won.
“Joe Biden won the presidential race there, the first Democrat to do so in nearly 30 years, by just 12,670 votes, “Ap News reported.
The state was flooded with troublesome absentee ballots, so a bill was introduced and passed, then signed into law. The voter bill signed by Governor Kemp on Thursday will curtail out-of-control absentee ballots in the future, causing a partisan upheaval in the state with Democrats threatening violence against the Governor, Republicans, and Georgia voters.
From Georgia’s Secretary of State office, The State Election Board on Wednesday referred 35 cases of election-law violations to the attorney general or local district attorneys for criminal prosecution.
“Election fraud is not tolerated in Georgia. When there is evidence of it, the people responsible face prosecution,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, chairman of the five-member board. “Georgia has multiple safeguards in place that allow our team of investigators to discover fraudulent voting. They worked to catch the wrongdoing in these cases, and they maintain the security of Georgia elections.”
The Secretary of State’s Office investigation division has 23 sworn officers with arrest power and vast experience as detectives in law enforcement. They impartially investigate allegations of voting irregularities and present their findings to the Board, which can levy fines, issue a letter of instruction or refer the case for prosecution.
Among the cases bound over for prosecution, Wednesday was four incidents of felons voting or registering to vote, four non-citizens voting or registering to vote, and one case of misplaced ballots during the 2020 general election, which didn’t change the outcome but did affect the total. Also bound over for prosecution were canvassers for two organizations trying to register people to vote, including one who allegedly submitted registration applications they knew were false.
Of those bound over for prosecution Wednesday for alleged violations of Georgia election law, the most noteworthy are:
· The New Georgia Project allegedly submitted 1,268 voter registration applications after the 10-day deadline, causing voters to be disenfranchised in the March 19, 2019, special election.
The New Georgia Project was founded by Stacey Abrams.

“No Justice, No Peace,” was screamed over and over, a famous mantra of all civil uprisings, and Democrat riots in the summer of 2020, where people were killed and fires destroyed cities.
In the following video, a group of protesters in front of the police station where Park Cannon was expected to be released, statements were delivered by Sen. Warnock where he said he was going to fight the GA voter bill everywhere..
The group screamed and yelled about releasing Cannon. After she was released, her lawyer spoke for a few moments saying that “her voice is elevated at this moment. And there was an overreach by the Capitol Police” her lawyer said.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE INSURRECTION?
“She is an intelligent person and very dignified, and this is a desperate attempt to lump out and squeeze people out of their own Democracy, and to silence people will not stand. The goal for voter suppressors is to demoralize people, and we will take this fight to the US Senate. We are not going to let them take us back. We will not allow politicals to take us back. This bill is outrageous, and we will fight. Georgia is claiming there was a fraud, and there wasn’t, Warnock said. “We are going to take this fight to the hall of Congress.”
At the end of the video, Warnock is heard lying about the events of Jan 6th, claiming a police officer died when that did not happen and claiming that Cannon was mistreated even though she was released early.

Remember that these two Democrats, Abrams, and Warnock, are under investigation for voter fraud.
The Guardian reported on the investigation:
The Georgia state election board referred two cases to prosecutors in February connected to organizations that helped mobilize a record number of voters in the state during the 2020 election.
One case involves the New Georgia Project (NGP), the group founded by Stacey Abrams in 2014, that helps mobilize voters of color. In 2019, investigators alleged, the group violated state law by not handing in 1,268 voter registration applications within the 10 days required under state rules. According to Atlanta, the named respondent in the matter is Senator Raphael Warnock, who the group says was serving as the chairman of its board at the time but was incorrectly listed on documents as the group’s CEO Journal-Constitution.
“The February 10th State Election Board meeting was the first time NGP heard about the allegations regarding NGP’s important voter registration work from 2019,” Nse Ufot, who has served as the group’s CEO since 2014, said in a statement. “We have not received any information on this matter from the secretary or any other Georgia official so we will have no further comment on the investigation.”
The second case the state board referred to deal with a canvasser for the Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda, another group that played an instrumental role in registering new voters. The canvasser allegedly submitted 70 false voter registrations while working on behalf of the group.
Helen Butler, the group’s executive director, said the group caught the forged voter registration applications in 2019 and that she was the one who reported the canvasser to the secretary of state’s office for investigation. That fact was unmentioned in a Thursday press release from Raffensperger’s office announcing the referrals.
“We have a whole process to ensure that we have legitimate forms,” Butler said in an interview. “We want people to vote. We’re not spending our time out there trying to get fraudulent forms.”
