Georgia Sues DOJ Over Possible Coordination w/ Leftist Voting Rights Groups

'We want to know what type of contacts they've had with Stacey Abrams and other organizations, and who is pulling the strings...'

Georgia filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s Justice Department this week to force the administration to reveal whether it coordinated with leftist activist groups after the 2020 presidential election.

The lawsuit, filed by state Attorney General Christopher Carr and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, is an effort to “compel compliance” with the state’s requests for records and communications between the DOJ and leftist voting rights groups. The records are relevant because of the DOJ’s lawsuit against Georgia over its election integrity law, the lawsuit states.

“To what extent did DOJ coordinate with outside entities when it decided to bring a lawsuit against Georgia, but not other states with similar voting laws, under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act?” the lawsuit reads, according to Fox News. “The answer to that question will help clarify the extent to which DOJ is pursuing a transparent political agenda in its lawsuit against Georgia.”

Biden’s DOJ sued Georgia in June, alleging its new election integrity law violates the Voting Rights Act.

In response, Georgia filed a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request in August requesting all communications related to the state’s new election law. The FOIA also requested communications between DOJ officials and leftist activists in Georgia, including failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

“By failing to respond to the request, DOJ is depriving Plaintiffs and the public of vital information needed to determine whether the Government is colluding or conspiring with outside entities to carry out a political agenda,” Georgia’s lawsuit states.

Raffensperger said the DOJ is intentionally “stone-walling” the state’s requests.

“We think the people deserve to know who is pulling the strings behind their politicized lawsuit,” he told Fox News. “We want to know what type of contacts they’ve had with Stacey Abrams and other organizations, and who is pulling the strings–who is pushing this politicized lawsuit.”
