The New Georgia Project, a group currently under investigation for “significant illegal activities” regarding voter-registration applications, began handing over subpoenaed documents on Friday, and says it’s reached an agreement to limit the scope of the documents it’s required to turn over.
Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp launched the investigation of the New Georgia Project earlier this month after receiving “numerous” complaints regarding applications submitted by the group, including forged signatures and applications. The investigation has turned up 33 fraudulent applications thus far, ahead of the thousands of pages of documents set to be turned over. The group is run by a close ally and campaign confidante of Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn, state-house minority leader Stacy Abrams.
Kemp’s office says it’s not aware of any deal to limit what documents will have to be handed over. “The scope [of the investigation] has not been limited,” Kemp’s spokesman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “This is just the beginning.”
The secretary of state’s office maintains it still requests all of the group’s documents and will seek a judge’s order if it fails to comply.
