Raffensperger Files FOIA Request for DOJ’s Contact w/ Stacey Abrams, Activist Groups

'The American people deserve to know who’s really pulling the strings in the hyper partisan Biden Department of Justice...'

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking access to the correspondence between Justice Department officials and activist organizations that supported Stacey Abrams’s crusade against election integrity.

The records request specifically mentions communications between Abrams, a failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate, and several leftist groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, Common Cause and Campaign Legal Center.

Raffensperger argued the request is relevant because of the Justice Department’s recently-filed lawsuit against Georgia over its new voting reform law, which seeks to close loopholes exploited by the Left under the auspices of pandemic emergency measures.

The state has the right to know how and why the DOJ arrived at the opinion that “a provision of a state’s election law violates” the Voting Rights Act, as the department alleged in its lawsuit, Raffensperger said.

“The American people deserve to know who’s really pulling the strings in the hyper partisan Biden Department of Justice,” Raffensperger said in a statement.

“Georgia is being singled out for political reasons,” he added. “This new step will help determine whether the Biden Administration is getting outside help in turning America’s top law enforcement agency into an extension of the extreme left wing or if the DOJ has been taken over by liberal activists altogether.”

The DOJ claimed in its lawsuit that Georgia’s election-integrity law, which is not nearly as restrictive as several leftist states’, violates federal prohibitions on discrimination on the basis of race, color or membership in a language minority group. 

“The United States’ complaint contends that several provisions of Senate Bill 202 were adopted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race,” the Justice Department said.

Raffensperger said the suit was “absolutely partisan” and had no legal basis.

“We’re very confident that we will prevail against this progressive wing of the Department of Justice,” he said in June.
