America’s worst Secretary of State Brian Kemp has done it again. In the past year, Kemp has released 6.1 million social security numbers, allowed voters to vote in the wrong district, issued the wrong ballots in the primary election, and perpetuated the targeting and disenfranchisement minority voters.
On the second-to-last-weekend before the voter registration deadline, Kemp’s lack of oversight has prevented an unknown number of potential voters to register. In a statement made yesterday, Kemp’s office blamed the issue on a technology provider.
The issue occurred as the result of the website’s failing to update. However, if Kemp was doing his job correctly he would’ve postponed the update by two weeks (the registration cut off) or merely checked to make sure it was working after the update.
Instead of taking responsibility and notifying as many people as possible that they may not be registered to vote in the upcoming election, Kemp blamed those working under his authority and limited publication of the issue to a small news item buried on the SOS website. Now an unknown number of Georgians have no idea that they may not be registered to vote.
Any one of his actions may have been a careless mistake, however the overwhelming number of problems he’s caused for Georgia voters point directly to corruption and fraud. If someone was as particularly “mistake-ridden” as he appears to be and cared about the carrying out of democracy, they would at least accept help.
But in the wake of all his failures, Kemp is refusing election help and continuing to come between Georgia and a fair election.
