PRESS RELEASE: STOP STACEY RENEWS CALLS FOR PROSECUTION IN CASE AGAINST NEW GEORGIA PROJECT
ATLANTA – Today, Stop Stacey, Inc. urged Attorney General Chris Carr to take prosecutorial action in the ongoing case against The New Georgia Project. The organization, founded by Stacey Abrams and led by longtime CEO Raphael Warnock, has been under investigation for allegedly interfering with over 1,200 voter registration applications. In February, after overwhelming evidence came to light, the State Election Board referred the case to the Attorney General’s office for prosecution – though charges have yet to be formally filed.
“For years, Stacey Abrams’ Soros funded voter registration group has spawned controversy – and complaints – by skirting Georgia’s election code. But no matter how untouchable Stacey believes herself to be, she should remember: even dark money darlings of the Left are not above the law,” said Stop Stacey Senior Strategist Jeremy Brand. “We urge Attorney General Chris Carr and his team to continue the investigation into the New Georgia Projects’ potentially criminal tactics and restore trust and transparency in our electoral process by finally holding Stacey Abrams accountable.”
New Georgia Project has been riddled with controversies and scandals since its inception. The group is still under active investigation for attempting to register out-of-state voters in the 2020 elections. In 2018, it was hit with numerous tax liens for failing to pay unemployment taxes, and last year, it took $482,000 in PPP loans meant for small businesses—more than 4 times the average amount.
