So, as reported by Politico, the decide has now ordered these 4,000 voters to be put again on the rolls for subsequent week’s election.
Regardless of the seemingly blazingly apparent illegality of two county board of elections ignoring federal restrictions to purge voters whilst early voting is happening primarily based on the complaints of two cranks who took it upon themselves to undergo public information and take a look at their very own hand at “matching” information, this in all probability will not be the top of issues. Muscogee County specifically seems to be extraordinarily peeved that the decide assigned to the case did not recuse herself: that decide is Leslie Abrams Gardner, the sister of state voting rights activist Stacy Abrams.
However interesting the case would appear to be a idiot’s errand. You possibly can’t “systemically” purge voters throughout a federal election. You possibly can’t purge voters within the three months earlier than one. You definitely should not be doing it primarily based on a public criticism that some so-and-so went by way of information and “believes” they’ve discovered, with no additional proof, individuals who should no longer be allowed to vote, and particularly not when offered with proof that that has been a horrible option to make supposed “matches” previously. Possibly take the loss and save the lawyer charges?
