An announcement by the Georgia secretary of state confirms the fears of many across the nation about election integrity. 1,000 voters in a recent heated state election double-voted, meaning they likely mailed in their ballots and showed up to polling places as well.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced Tuesday that around one thousand voters are being investigated for double-voting in the state’s June 9 primary.
As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, these voters are facing a felony if charged, while Democrat-affiliated groups are claiming the state should not punish these voters.
“A double-voter knows exactly what they’re doing, diluting the votes of each and every voter that follows the law,” Raffensperger said during a press conference and reported by the AJC. “Those that make the choice to game the system are breaking the law. And as secretary of state, I will not tolerate it.”
While Raffensperger is cracking down on the election fraud—notably this election had record number of absentee ballots casted—some groups are standing against the cracking down on blatant voter fraud.
Aklima Khondoker, Georgia director for All Voting is Local, an organization that works to increase absentee ballot drop boxes said the state should not seek charges because “Voters are not criminal.”
“They only did what they thought was right to make sure their vote was counted,” she said.
If found guilty of double-voting, an individual can face one to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $100,000. The Secretary of State said charges or other further action will be determined on an individual basis.
While some argue that it was confusing for voters to know if their absentee ballots had been counted, Raffensperger says voters knew what they were doing when they voted twice and he will not allow this to happen.

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi’s Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records
As the one year anniversary of the January 6th riots on the U.S. Capitol approach, more information comes to light, particularly with regard to Democrats’ desperate attempts to prove something sinister was planned.
However, Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.
Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi’s obstruction:
“In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol’s security vulnerabilities. On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th” the letter states.
“Although the USCP immediately complied with my request to preserve and produce relevant documents, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer—the two House officers who report directly to you—responded jointly that they were ‘unable to comply with the request at this time.’ Now, nearly a year after this request, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer have yet to comply with my request.”
“Mr. Irving’s attorneys informed the Senate that ‘the relevant records are the property of the U.S. House of Representatives, and we have therefore referred the Senators’ request for records to the House Office of General Counsel for transmission to the appropriate House officials.’”
“I subsequently wrote to Douglas Letter, the House General Counsel appointed by and responsible to you, to request that he produce Mr. Irving’s communications. However, like the other two House officers who report directly to you, Mr. Letter has not complied—or even responded—to my request for Mr. Irving’s records.”
“Republicans again sought relevant records from House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer in March 2021 and, once again, the House officers who report to you ignored our requests. At that time, as various federal entities began to produce January 6 material to several House committees, Republicans made requests—including to the House Sergeant-at- Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer—that all such material be shared equally with Democrats and Republicans. Both the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Chief Administrative Officer failed to produce any documents to Republicans pursuant to our requests, suggesting that these House officers may be providing documents only to Democrats on a partisan basis.”
“As Speaker of the House, you are the most senior elected official in the House of Representatives and therefore ultimately responsible for all House operations, not just those of your party. You appoint all House officers, who serve at your pleasure. You yield enormous institutional power over how Congress operates, including the security posture of the Capitol complex.”
“There is irony in the fact that at the same time House Democrats are holding witnesses in criminal contempt of Congress for raising genuine questions of legal privilege, you continue to obstruct Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021. This double standard only adds to the evidence that Democrats are weaponizing events of January 6th against their political adversaries.”
