Trump-Kemp Dispute Creates Rift Within Georgia GOP as Runoff Elections Nears

"You might need to win an election is a unified message. But Republican unity is hard to come by in the state of Georgia. Right now, President Trump has called Governor Brian Camp a fool and a clown for refusing to overturn President elect Joe Biden's victory there. Kemp says intervening in the election would be illegal and pressure over that dispute is creating a rift within the state's Republican Party just three weeks before runoff elections that will determine control of the Senate from member station to be Abie in Atlanta ever hurt reports Earlier this month, Governor Brian Kemp gave a press conference at the state Capitol about George's plan to distribute the Corona virus vaccine. Well, good afternoon, everyone. First of all, let me thank you for joining us today. Also, the elephant in the room is politics and on the Facebook Live comments. It's center stage. This man has turned his back on his Republican Party, writes one Georgian Can't believe I voted for you. Camp sellout, says another. And don't bother to run again. You're finished. Needless to say, Georgia Republicans are divided right now. Some lawmakers air calling to override the governor and back the president by demanding a special session of the Legislature. We're here in Athens today, Bert Jones with US And bring the beach part of the gang of four, putting out a petition demanding a special session. They're trying to go around the governor they need to Republican State Senators, Jones and Beach were on the John Fredericks Show and National Pro Trump Radio program. Last week, they alleged large scale voter fraud, which Republican election officials have said didn't happen. Here's beach and I can tell you if we do not fix this, and that's why I'm so adamant about this. I'm so fearful. That we're gonna wake up January 6, and we're not gonna like what happened because it's not going to be a fair election. Beach and Jones are responding to pressure from their pro trump constituents like those tearing camp apart on the Internet and calling in on this show, Let's get to the phone lines. Where we have Caroline from Sandy Springs carry these senators, some say, are ready to break the law to back President Trump. But Caroline wants them to know it's still not enough. We are mad on being very nice right now. We need you to step up into your part. We need you to stand up for us. Now. The pressure is so fierce on Republican state lawmakers, it was difficult to find someone willing to speak on the record for this story. They're worried about being targeted. But one did. My name was Chuck Martin represented 49th district up in North Fulton County. Martin is a longtime Republican. He spent 18 years in the General Assembly and wishes President Trump won the election. But he liked the governor doesn't believe the Constitution allows the Legislature to intervene That hasn't stopped tens of thousands of emails from flowing in. I'm getting an email that says, Stand true to your oath of office do this. But standing true to my oath of office doesn't allow me to do that. It's been the most frustrating moment in his public service career, he says, because some people have been completely convinced by misinformation. Like one retired army colonel who is pushing for the election to be overturned. Martin responded with language from the state Constitution, saying, Please explain how I can legally do what you're asking me to do. And instead from him, I get no How instead you know, he calls me a coward. A traitor. You know somebody that won't stand up to my oath of office. That's frustrating to me. I mean, I take this job seriously. President Trump is creating a rift in the Republican Party at a very inopportune time, says Charles Bullock, a political scientist at the University of Georgia as we saw in November of this year The Republican Party doesn't have AH, large commanding lead within Georgia, It is rarely close. It could be the kind of division it opens the door for Democrats to do very well in 2022. Jeannie Bradley is a Republican voter from helps about in Eastern Georgia. She was at a Mike Pence rally this month. And she's just confused because of the mixed messages about the election and about her Republican leaders. But we need to know more. You know, you're getting bits and pieces from all of the news media. You don't know. What to believe anymore, And it's just not the news media. It's people you know. In general, Republicans will still have her vote. But there are other people, she says, who may throw up their hands in this chaos, vote democratic or skip the election. And if Republicans lose the run offs, the big divisions that have emerged since November will likely only intensify in the GOP for NPR news. I'm Emma hurt in Atlanta

"Birmingham, Alabama. Glad you waited, Sir. You're up next on our big program. How are you? Rush. It's an honor. Thank you. Little in the middle of three generations of listen like my now 79 year old father introduced me to you in 1992. I have since it's introduced you to my now 30 old son, and we're all example. Well, I appreciate that is fabulous, and I cannot thank you enough. That's really appreciate it. So back to the city policy. I think they the Trump team had to distance themselves. For the simple reason. Over the weekend at Newsmax. She gave an interview that the first state she was going to blow up. Is Georgia. That's her words. And she said something else I thought where they got my attention and must have got their attention. She said something along the lines that Doug Collins Actually beat Kelly Leslie. And so if that effects the Georgia Senate races The Trump team can't be part of that. I'm not. I'm not saying whether it's true or not. I kind of hoped she does prove all of that. But I think the Trump team had to distance themselves in case it cost them. The Senate. Ah, that Doug Collins beat Kelly La Flor. Yes, because members of three person race and nobody got over 50%. She alluded to in one of the interviews over the weekend. Well, you know, they put something put something else out. But they said that the reason that they had to throw her under the bus Her overboard is what she said about the governor there. Brian Kemp. He said that Brian Kemp Was being blackmailed and bribed by a bunch of communists in Venezuela. Because he bought the Dominion Machines and an implement of put them in the service in Georgia on that he was he was part of the conspiracy. Now that I know what Trump has had problems with Kemp, often on But when you got somebody on your legal team, claiming that a Republican governor is in bed, with Venezuelan communists going on the way back to Hugo Chavez Then you've got somebody that I think the phrase that was used by some is jumped the shark. Uh, but you're you're Your theory could be the operative theory as well. I'm struck by how many people who think that this is a head fake. Sydney is not really out. Sydney has been reassigned while making it look like she's been thrown overboard. And under the boss. Which then frees her to actually move in ways that she wants independently of the campaign.

So we're going to open up talking about the mullahs investigation the recommendation by Muller to give in no time. And he did nineteen interviews. We're gonna talk about voter suppression and manipulation. In many of these states around elections. The alleged Cummings the incoming chair of oversight and government operations in the house. As said, he may call Brian Kemp who won the gubernatorial election against Stacey Abrams in Georgia. To question him about what he did in the election in terms of closing voting polls and other shenanigans that many of us felt to haul losing unfairly in that race. So there's a lot to talk about the Democratic Party. What all of this going on? What will be their strategy? Will they blow it will? They do something Michael Bloomberg said, and I think it's interesting that. The Democrats won. He brought a lot of money in supporting Democrats. Now, they're going to have to do something. What are they gonna do? Well. You and I are not billionaires like Michael Bloomberg. But all of us. I think many of us anyway have called a show and raise the same questions.

"Nation radio where we roll out some of the most wacky astonishing and damnable things uttered by politicians and the chattering class in a busy week in the world of politics. There's something new. We saw another one of those obscure district court. Judges rule that President Trump cannot stop people from entering the country when they're breaking the law. President Trump ruffled feathers by essentially exonerating, Saudi Arabia in the gruesome murder of Jamal kashogi for the sake of the American economy and the stock market took a nosedive we'll get to all of that. But we'll start with the non concession concession by defeated Georgia. Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams who we discussed with John fund earlier in the show. She leveled serious charges of voter suppression against her victorious opponent. Brian camp, citizens try to exercise their constitutional rights and were still denied the ability to elect their leaders under the watch of the now former secretary of state democracy failed Georgia. I ignore that former secretary of state Brian Kemp will be certified as the Victor in the twenty eighteen gubernatorial election, but to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin, his hopes for election on the suppression of the people's democratic right to vote has been truly appalling. So let's be clear this is not a speech of concession. And so confidence in the electoral process on the fairness of voting will take another hit amid poll showing that the constant accusations of Russian meddling in two thousand sixteen put forward by the Democrats. And of course, the appointment of a special counsel to investigate it. Some forty percent of voters actually believe Russia tampered with the actual votes in two thousand sixteen and again, some forty percent do not have confidence their votes. Will be counted fairly. But that story was quickly overshadowed by another one of those obscure district court judges looking for his fifteen minutes of fame judge, John as chigar no relation to the character. And Winnie the Pooh, I presume from where else San Francisco issued a nationwide restraining order barring enforcement of the policy. President Trump announced on November eighth limiting asylum seekers to legal checkpoints. So what is customs and border enforcement supposed to do? Now. When the caravan arrives CBCP director, Kevin machelandon said on Fox News that this heavily male caravan represents a genuine threat. This is a different kind of caravan. This is a very large group. It's cohesive, it's primarily adult males. We've seen them cross to international borders by force already. They've salted law enforcement professionals both in Guatemala and Mexico. Oh, and so we've seen that be willing to use very aggressive tactics. And so we've got to be prepared for that. So the worst case contingency would be thousands of people trying to force their way through vehicle lanes at a port of entry unlawfully under the US, and that's the word prepared to stop already that folks in the Mexican border town of Tijuana have made clear that the caravanners are not welcome there. But just as that story got heated up. President Trump raised a ruckus by saying despite plentiful evidence and reason to believe that the Saudi Royal family was involved or even masterminded the murder of dissident Jamal kashogi. He's not making any sudden moves against America. I to.

"All right. So here's what's really going on in Georgia. So Stacey aprons obviously the democrat loses to Brian camp. And now in one of the most unbelievably ungracious, embarrassing episodes. I've seen in politics in modern times, and I don't speak with forked tongue. I can't say this enough. I lost the race by a sliver. I knew Joe when it happened. I moved on it stinks. But you move on yet concede. You wish the guy or the woman the best of luck? And you go, and you give it the old college. Try the next time Abrams refuses to do this. She gave a concession speech where she said, I'm not basically, I'm not conceding that this is not a concession. But she refuses to acknowledge that Brian Kemp is the is the she. Says he's the legal governor of Georgia. But that's not the la-. She won't acknowledge. He's the legitimate governor of Georgia. Why why is this happening, folks? How many times do I have to say this on this show? And I hope you you all just really tattoo this onto your upper upper gray matter in your brain. The Democrats never do. Anything by mistake. They have sense the ability again using your. Charge. They have since the ability in Georgia to move in a state that has a large minority population to use it as a wedge issue in twenty twenty to try to knock Georgia into the swing state column for the presidential election. Stacey Abrams knows full. Well, that what she's saying about Brian camp in this being a stolen election in Georgia. She knows full. Well, she's not dumb. She knows full. Well, these are specious nonsensical farcical allegations. They are totally completely untrue. I want to knock them down for you. In the next say, five minutes almost spend too long in the segment one by one because not because this is about Georgia. Because Georgia is going to become a twenty twenty issue about voter suppression fail made up fake charges of voter suppression at twenty twenty in states with large minority populations where they think they have a chance to be Trump. So let's get right to it. Number one. They say, well, Brian Kemp. The secretary of state who is now the governor elected Georgia. He purged punch of people from the voter rolls. Oh my gosh. What did he do purge them from the that movie the purge what they show up, but people's house, you're off the voter rolls wearing masks like in that movie the purge? What do you mean he purged people from the voter rolls? Well, when you do a little homework, which liberals listening to show, I understand you. Don't want to do homework. I get this. I get that homeworks disturbing to you because homework uncovers what facts in data, and I understand liberals, you are entirely immune to Faxon data. I get it that there's nothing we can say to crack through your sixty five foot thick skulls of that are. It's like, you know, you'd have to proton beam Faxon data through that. I get that. We can't do it. But for the people listening who are reasonable and who talked to liberals that may be somewhat persuadable in the future. The law the law that Brian Kemp and the state of Georgia used to clean up their voter rolls was a law Joe signed into law by wavy who Zell Miller's who is all he was a democrat governor in Georgia. Oh, a crazy. How that happens, isn't it? Yeah. And it was signed into law job by what by what legislature that was democratic at the top. Oh, crazy crazy how that happens, isn't it? The use it or lose it or use it or lose. It law was modeled after the motor voter registration act, which says if you don't vote in three consecutive elections. They'll send a notification to your house, and you have multiple opportunities to reinstate your your registration. But this law signed by Democrats and a democrat governor was designed because there's a lot of in and out of moving in and out of states to keep people from voting and multiple states and keep their voter rolls clean. Ladies and gentlemen. There is no suppression under this, even if you did not vote and your voter registration is heard. It's not purge. They use this term because they know it's loaded purged. Joe you can show up on election day with your voter ID, which they have in Georgia and cast a provisional ballot..

"So have these recounts in both the gubernatorial and Senate races have begun in earnest or these still theoretical. They have begun in earnest the deadline for the state is Thursday. And that is kind of a big deal because it says a lot of work to retaliate all of these ballots, and in Florida, if they can't meet that deadline, then the official result just reverts back to what the the first tally was and already. We're hearing Republican parties in different counties saying all right? Well, if that happens, which would likely happen in the most populous counties, and those counties are democratic than it's good for us. Right. Because if it just reverts back to the old results than the Republicans will will likely do better than if a recount were in there. Of course, the only other outstanding gubernatorial race in the country is in Georgia where Stacey Abrams still hasn't conceded defeat to Brian Kemp. What's going on there? This is another really hotly contested race. Brian Kemp is until last week because the secretary of state in Georgia in other words that it was his job to oversee these elections, including the one that he is running in. So currently Brian Kemp is leading but Stacey Abrams is campaign is really pushing for all of the votes to be counted. And they will continue to be counted this week, I she will need roughly nineteen thousand votes to trigger a recount in the state, and she would need a little bit more than twenty thousand votes to actually send the the race into a runoff because in Georgia if neither candidate can get fifty percent of the vote plus one vote then the race will automatically go to a runoff, which would be another election kind of do over on December fourth Hm and do does does Stacey Abrams expect different results. If there's a runoff. Why xactly she fighting for that? So there have been a lot of allegations of voter suppression and vote. Access problems in Georgia. A lot of that has been coming down to camp himself. Just because he's been in the position of overseeing the elections. Civil rights groups are suing Cam for putting more than fifty three thousand voter registration applications on hold mostly from minority voters for Stacey Abrams on only does her campaign say that there are more outstanding votes than the secretary of state office is currently reporting, but she also has been making a big case about whether or not voters had proper access to vote to register to vote all things that have been kind of boiling over in the weeks before election day, and even now, and I guess the last outstanding race we should talk about is in Arizona, where I'm not so sure there's there's likely to be a recount, but things are still being decided, right? Right. So in Arizona, the race is between Republican Martha mcsally democrat, Kristen cinema. And this is the race to fill retiring Senator Jeff flake seat and at. I looked like Martha accelerate had the lead. But again, we saw here. As more of the votes were counted in some of the largest counties in Arizona, like Maricopa County where Phoenix is that cinema. Not only closed the gap, but actually started leading. And she is now amassed a pretty sizable lead where even some election watchers are thinking that she is going to be a winner here. And we're just waiting for the rest of the the ballots to be counted throughout this week. So all in all you've got these four major races. That are getting a lot of attention across the country. Are are these recounts and waiting games gonna change the results from what people expected less Tuesday? Every one of these races is slightly different. I will say when it comes to recounts. It's very rare went that they actually do change the results, but it's not completely out of the question. An analysis by five thirty eight a couple of years ago showed that between two thousand and two thousand fifteen there were twenty seven recounts into state wide races. And only three of those recounts changed the actual final result. So you can see here. It's an incredibly rare case for something to change. But in states like Florida when we have these under votes and in in large numbers more than the actual difference between the. Candidates. There is a possibility here, and we can't discount that..

Specifically, it was about kind of centrist voters, and I had this conversation with her. I'm gonna say two or three years ago with Stacey Abramson. I remember because she for years has faced on the side face. But you know, let me tell you Stacey Abrams campaign in Georgia was a magnificent thing. I will probably go to my grave believing that she one. No, no, wait. Yeah. Let me be clear that election was stolen. Yes. It's it was stolen. And this is the question of enfranchisement, and whether we can end the very questions that I'm going to recall talking about with her. Couple years ago are the questions that probably may mean, although she has of now she's still pushing for a recount, and I hope that she gets one because I do believe that she got more votes and had more support in. It's one hundred percent clear that that was the case. And was running against like truly one of the. Cartoon level. Billions of our time in Brian Kemp. Stacey was the person who spoke to me in a very nuts and bolts way. Several years ago about this strategic question. Okay. So you have your your part of a progressive coalition is at the Democratic Party is at activists, where do you spend your capital, where do you spend your money is it in trying to persuade active voters who kind of hang out in the middle and are hard to enter a tough to sway or do you spend that capital trying to go to the people who are your natural base? The people who are but who've never been reached out to before who've never been approached have never been taken. Seriously, have never really been offered. The franchise even if they are. Could legally be enfranchised they've net. No party has approached them. No politician is knocked on their doors. No one's gone and said to them, we'd like you to be a voter, and we'd like you to participate in this process. And of course, Stacey Abrams approach to this through the new Georgia project was the enfranchisement over a period of years of hundreds of thousands of black voters. Many of them rural voters many of them poor who had never had contact with the parties with the electoral system who never been really to go back to my considered fully human by an electoral system, and who for good reason felt no compulsion to participate attachment to why why should I write no be of part of this system that has.

In in a way that engages and activates and doesn't like just reiterate the messages of you know, lack of power, right? But the but that project of reaching out fundamentally trying to expand electorate is though, it should be completely in line with our national self image. And sensibility is antithetical to the work of the party that claims to revere the founding promises. Right. And so in fact, the expansion of the electorate is the thing most feared by Republicans. And also by I mean, Republicans in so far as they support the power of the kinds of people who historically were granted power from the start. Oh, and also, they will tell you. I mean, like Brian Kemp said, you know, that he he's worried about people voting, right? It's not as you know, they just did not I wanna point out before for. I think Stacey Abrams is a leader in this regard. And again, she is the rightful governor of of of Georgia, but the expansion of the voting block of the pool of voters was also the project of better, aerobic guess Jacqueline.

I mean, like, that's what it seems like these issues have become it's just been interesting in these past few election cycles to watch that become such an explicit left. Right. Red blue issue. So you said I should feel not said about this. Listen. Time because it's so obviously villainous that you think like do you think we're no it's like at least now the it's like the partisan divide is so explicit in stark that we know it is one of the big issues dividing democratic and Republican leaders at the state level, right? We should say like a couple weeks before the election Jimmy Carter who Jimmy Carter's from Georgia. Former Georgia governor famous peanut farmer ever. Really? Yes. Currently lives in Georgia that you still isn't planes, which is breeze from. But Jimmy Carter wrote this letter to Brian Kemp in his like, hey, you should resign. Because like a big part of this is not just that the Brian Kim's policies a secretary of state have been restrictive. It's also just there are people who feel sort of more complicated about this. But there are people who just think it's fundamentally corrupt that. Like, Brian Kemp is the secretary of state overseeing elections while running for governor in that that's like constitutes an unfair advantage. It's sketchy, and yeah, but I didn't know what to think about it. Because I was like, I don't think that's really an unprecedented situation. Like secretary of state in a lot of states is a pretty high profile position such that. It's the sort of position that somebody would get just that they could run for governor later if that makes sense for because they like seeing their name the DMV stuff. That's that is also. That's very Kate. Dave state. But now that the election has happened. The Kemp is like very narrowly ahead and outs spirited election and Abrahams hasn't conceded. A couple of hours ago, find Kip step down a secretary of state and Georgia. So he seems if at least finally heeded that part of all this. Yeah, it's it's unclear how this is gonna play out just on the level of Stacey Abrams for Brian Kemp. But it's also unclear to me. I have ideas. But it's just unclear to me how this is gonna play out as a national concern as a broader concern of lake would we think about how easy it should be devote. Like, do we do Americans really think that there is some widespread epidemic voter fraud lake would've ideological motivations for even believing that that is an existential lake threat to our democracy. When really it's a pretty marginal fluke of a problem. Why think that people just don't have a lot of faith in our institutions anymore in general, and and people are also very racist. You put those two things together. And what you get is suppression. So I wanna talk about a vote that's coming up with you for our next topic. Oh, I thought you said a vote for me waiting my being my running for something. Oh, no don't vote for me, be awful pleased. Over me. I vote you in for secretary of state, actually, I wrote my name all that ID's ready sitting. We don't commit voter fraud here. Okay. But yeah, let's talk about Nancy Pelosi.

And in this particular case, the the third party candidate may prevent that from happening. Guy by the name of Ted Mets. He's probably not going to get many votes in the Georgia governor's race. But he's on the ballot. And that definitely raises the possibility that no one is going to declare victory. Come tuesday. You've got Republican Brian Kemp and democrat Stacey Abrams said that are in the home stretch of a closely watched race there. To succeed Nathan deal whose term limited. Mets third party campaign hasn't got a whole lot of attention. But the thing is if the vote margin between Kevin Abrams is close enough even a small percentage of votes for match could force the two major party contenders. Into a month of overtime that would culminate in a run off election, December the fourth. According to a political science, professor at Emory University. In Atlanta, the reason why you have to take it seriously as we we expect the margin is good to be so close between Kemp and Abrahams said, it's probably gonna be the closest we've seen in a long long time. Of course, libertarians have been on the ballot for every Georgia governors election since nineteen ninety eight they typically take somewhere between two and four percent of the vote. But they've never come to the point where they required a runoff election in Georgia runoffs in statewide races have been rare. So that may be coming into the picture next Tuesday. Now in Montana, interestingly the libertarian candidate they're realizing knowing full well that he's not gonna win. He is withdrawing. And putting his support behind Republican. Matt rosendahl? He said this is in response to an election Mailer from some group that appeared aimed at undermining Rosen DALE'S support among conservatives Rosendahl is Montana. State auditor insurance Commissioner he's in a tight race against the two term democrat, Jon tester, the Senator. And of course, we're watching closely this whole balance of power in the Senate. Rick Breckenridge is the libertarian. Asia's. Yep. No, virtually no chance of winning, but his participation may peel away enough votes. That would go to the Republican and actually Busse testers Jansa witted. Breckenridge said in an interview, he doesn't know the source of this Mailer. Which actually promoted him as a true conservative and claimed that his support he supports using drones to spy on private citizens. He said the reality is I'm only going to get three or four percent of the vote. So. With that. We're up against the clock. News update. Twenty nine past the hour on ATM..

"And she talks a bit about the importance of voting in general. But you get the sense that this crowd knows that stuff already. So she moves onto her real ask I got a couple of posters, and I would like to give those out to ones that's active a note. Birch miss the job if you would put these up anywhere, you think that to remind people is to let them know what they need to bring when they go to vote because a lot of times people don't know if they have voted before. And here's the real rub for Stacey Abrams. Remember, her strategy is to engage this broad swath of voters in previously ignored places places like southwest, Georgia. But the biggest challenge to that is the fact that voting in Georgia has become quite a complicated business. Thanks, primarily to Brian Kemp who has been absolutely lethal in terms of voter suppression. This is Emory University. Professor, Carol Anderson, who's new book, one person no-vote traces, the erosion of voting rights since the civil rights movement. She says Kim has been a trailblazer for Republican election officials all over the country who have come up with an array of tactics for reducing turn out all of which land hard and places like clay county places with a lot of poor black residents. You can think of it is working in three stages. First there's the stuff that stops you before you even get. Started. So for instance, here in Georgia. They've got a type that keeps you from registering to vote at all and that's called exact match, and that is where your voter registration card is matched up against the databases either from the social security office or from the department of motor vehicles. And if there is one thing off so say your name has a hyphen in it on your driver's license. But as you wrote it in on your voter registration card. It doesn't have a hyphen that kicks your voter registration out. This is the program that's been a huge national news story. The AP reports that more than fifty three thousand voter registration applications have been on hold with Georgia's secretary of state Brian Kemp. But that's for new voters. There's a second tactic for people who registered a long time ago voter roll purges voter purges, also go after this notion of rampant voter fraud. That's been. Kim's argument that he's just preventing voter fraud. Of course, it bears repeating that. There is no evidence of a meaningful fraud problem. Still this summer the Brennan center for Justice found that Georgia had purged ten percent of its registered voters in just the past two years alone. And that's the first and second stage. The final stage is when you actually show up to vote on election day, there's the voter ID laws and understaffed precincts and stuff like that. But in Georgia they've destroyed up close the doors of the voting booth. Georgia has already closed two hundred and fourteen polling places. That's since the supreme court weakened the enforcement authority of the Voting Rights Act six years ago, according to an analysis by the Atlanta Journal constitution, and it's happened all over the south actually once a rights group found that eight hundred and sixty eight polling places have been closed in seven mostly southern states, which means people in places like clay county are now traveling much much further to vote what we know is that for every tenth of a mile at a polling places moved from the black community African American voter turn out goes down by point five percent. One of the things that they had tried in Sparta Georgia, and this is wrapped in the language of just being reasonable. You know for fiscal reasons into consolidate all of these polling places because elections are really expensive when they did their consolidation. They tried to put the voting precinct for the black community. Seventeen miles away. Seventeen miles away..

"Well, at least she's honest about it. Stacey Abrams is the democrat candidate for Georgia governor, and she has openly. Said that part of the Blue Wave which will elect her the first African American woman in Georgia history to be governor also consists of undocumented voters. That's right. She is calling on illegal aliens in the state of Georgia to help her become the next governor, Brian Kemp is the Republican secretary of state who is the Republican nominee for governor. Stacey Abrams says accused him of stalling on 53,000 voter registration forms to suppress the vote. The problem with that charge is that there are more voters in Georgia than ever before. And as camp points out, the 53,000 he has challenged. We'll still be able to cast a ballot with their eligibility to do. So being determined on a case by case basis after the election, we hope to six million nine hundred fifteen thousand registered voters in Georgia will make the right choice. That's a Roger report. Now this word. Termites are swarming. Don't let termites kick you out of your home. If you suspect your proper. They may have termites stay home and call the orange oil experts X termite X termite control termites while you stay home. They're licensed inspectors are courteous and clean and will explain to you in detail how orange oil works to kill termites and eggs on contact.

"Coalition just reported that the Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp. Has been or excuse me has been reported to the Justice department civil rights division for Voting Rights Act violations. The Trump Justice department says so what right the Jeff Sessions runs it. So you want purge some name people. Stacey Abrams said tweeted feels like deja vu four years ago camp tried to knock tried to keep forty thousand new voters off the rolls. It took a few years, but we'd beat him few months ago. He tried to close polling places, but we beat him there to now he's added again, it will beat him. Again. You know, he's he's sitting on fifty two thousand registrations right now, refusing to put them into the system keep in mind the last Georgia. Gubernatorial election was won by about a hundred thousand votes. So Kemp can take more than half of that and swing it away from the democrat and toward him. He's he's governor which is obviously why campus doing this. But now, we learn from Greg palace that you know, it's not. Just Brian Kemp. In Georgia is he's the one that's acceptable to talk about in the corporate media, but you know, Greg palace just got the names of ninety thousand residents of Las Vegas and Reno. And you know, we're on the air in both towns Vegas. This is Clark and wash. Oh, counties purged were purged from the voting rolls ninety thousand people and Nevada is a battleground state, the the Republican dean Heller is running for reelection. And he's got a really strong challenger and for forgive me. I don't have that that person's name right at the tip of my tongue. But in your if you're in Nevada, or you know, anybody in Nevada. Go to Greg palace dot com. And you can see the list the other big one, and this, you know, hey heads up to our listeners w CPT in in Chicago. And and the and the other stations associated with CPT. Greg palace has the Illinois purge list. Yes. You, you know, you had a Republican governor there, and he has purged apparently five hundred fifty thousand voters from the voting rolls in Illinois. So again, you go to Greg palace dot com, and you can just plug your name in and see if you have been purged from the voting rolls in the state of Illinois. And Indiana, Greg palace finally got he's been suing these states right is twenty-seven Republican controlled states that are all aggressively purging their voting rolls. And I mean, you know, if you live in in, California, New York or Oregon or Washington state, this is not this is not an issue. But if you live in one of these red states, one of these Republican controlled states, and you want to vote democratic or you live in one of the big cities, or you know, you live a were you have an African American last name or Hispanic last Dan Marino, one of one of say ten twenty most common last names for both of those ethnic groups and Asians as well. If you know odds are pretty good. I mean, you know, not fifty fifty or ninety percent. But odds are probably ten fifteen percent that year no longer on the voting rolls. And in Indiana. The he found that they illegally purged ninety thousand people and again, you can see list over a Greg palace dot com. So the Georgia lists the Indiana lists the Illinois list and the Nevada list are all now up at Greg palace dot com. And it's really worth checking out and finally this. You know, not finally there's so much more news, and I'll be getting to your phone calls right after the break about what you think we can do about this outside or beyond just voting Democrats in our or do we need to get Democrats in and in fact, actually, right after the break, Tom Perez is going to be with us, and I will ask him that question. But the the last piece here the White House is finally admitted after lying about this for for over a year now Wilbur Ross saying, oh, yeah, we're gonna put the citizens ship question on the on the census, which of course, is going to cause any Hispanic family in America who even has one member of their family who's living. Anywhere in the neighborhood who is not a legal US citizen to freak out. Not fill out the census, which means they're going to end up underrepresented getting fewer federal dollars all those kind of things and and less representation in congress. Now.

"We have breaking news tonight in what is truly developing as an election scandal in Georgia where the Georgia end the Lacey pe- is preparing to sue secretary of state, Brian Kemp in response to reports that his office has put on hold tens of thousands of voter registration applications. Before this coming election, those are being held indefinitely the Republican strategy for winning elections now in a country where they are outnumbered by Democrats and outnumbered by Independence's to prevent Democrats from voting. That's why Republican state governments around the country have done everything they can to close voting locations that are easily accessible to Democrats in two simply kick Democrats off the voting rolls for any excuse they can find, and in many cases for no good or legal reason at all, nowhere is this strategy of trying to win by preventing voting more glaring than in the Georgia governor's race this year. Year where the Republican secretary of state Brian Kemp is running for governor as secretary of state. Brian come camp has been in effect the top election official in the state of Georgia. And so with his eyes on the prize of the governorship. Brian Kemp has four years. Ben cancelling the voter, registrations of Democrats. He has cancelled over one point, four million voter registrations, and that's in a state that only has six point four million registered voters. Brian Kemp has gotten rid of twenty percent of the voters. In George, we have never seen a twenty percent voter purge of voters in a state, and now the Associated Press is reporting that Brian Kemp's office has simply seized and is holding 53,000 voter registration applications, which it might just hold and suppress forever. Brian Kemp's claimed justification for seizing. These applications is his policy called exact match, which means if you leave out a middle initial in your name. Name that is somehow already on file and some other record that the state has been. Your voter, registration application is not an exact match for the state's pre existing information about you and you are presumed to be a voting criminal. Someone who's trying to falsely register and criminally registered to vote a phenomenon not known to actually exist in the United States. Brian Kemp knows where to find the Democrats who he doesn't want to vote in Georgia, and that is why seventy percent of the voter registration applications. That Brian Kemp is blocking our from African American voters in the state where African American population is thirty. Two percent. Brian Kemp is simply the most obvious of the grotesque, racist voter suppressors, who believe voter suppression is necessary to Republican election victories. He is running against Stacey. Abrams who said this today feels like. Deja vu. Four years ago Trump camp tried to keep forty thousand new voters off the rolls. It took a few years, but we beat them a few months ago. He tried to close polling places, but we beat them there too. Now he's added again and we'll beat him again. We will work to process the 53,000, but we don't have to wait for Justice. We've got twenty seven days of action, so we'll beat him in absentee. Ballots will beat him at early voting starting October fifteenth, and will beat him on November. Sixth, Brian Kemp has called us out. Let's vote and let's get it done. Joining us. Now from Georgia, Jason joins Johnson, politics editor at the root dot com and MSNBC.
