Forbes reports that U. S. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is under investigation for voter registration misconduct. The Georgia State Election Board has referred the case to Georgia’s Attorney General for further investigation.
Warnock served as the chairman of the board of Stacy Abrams’ New Georgia Project in 2019. Georgia law requires that a third party submitted a completed voter registration within 10 days after receiving from a voter. In 2019, the New Georgia Project held at least 1,268 applications in Gwinnett County longer than 10 days.
Because Warnock was elected to fill an unexpired term, he is up for reelection in 2022.
