Dear fellow MoveOn member,
As secretary of state in Georgia, Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp oversees the state's elections. In his role, he has purged more than a million voters from the registry, the majority of whom are from communities of color who would likely vote for his opponent Stacey Abrams. Most recently, he has held up more than 50,000 registrations for bogus reasons.1
Kemp should not be allowed to oversee the election board while he is running for the governor's office.
He has already failed in his job. He refused help to protect the voting machines in Georgia that were hacked by Russia.2 Kemp had the voter records erased so they could not be investigated. Right now, Kemp is holding 53,000 voter applications for exact match verification without notifying applicants.
Kemp is blatantly suppressing the vote in his role as secretary of state. If Kemp wants the appearance of a fair election, he must either resign or withdraw from the governor's race.
