Imagine trusting a group to register you to vote, only to find out that they ‘forgot’ to hand in your registration and the registrations of countless others … honestly, we just feel really sorry for these voters.
And infuriated by the actions of this group so busy claiming that Brian Kemp is suppressing the vote that they actually SUPPRESSED PEOPLE’S VOTES.
One of the groups that claimed Brian Kemp is suppressing the vote in Georgia actually forgot to hand in the voter registration applications they collected and a lot of people who thought they registered to vote couldn't vote because of this group, not because of Kemp.

This is what happens when the narrative matters more than people.
… students at Mercer University will not be able to vote in Georgia after a civil rights organization did not register them.
Bronwyn James and Julia Swain are two students from Mercer’s Townsend School of Music. They and other music performance students registered to vote with an organization that was canvassing outside of ZBeans Coffee back in September.
“A group of us got together to register at the stand, then a few weeks later, we went to the polling station to vote, and the registration volunteers let us know that we weren’t in the system,” Swain said.
The group of students had registered with Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta, a civil rights advocacy group. The organization was supposed to deliver the applications to the Secretary of State’s office, but several students’ applications never made it.
But they blame Kemp anyway. Go figure

And they’re still blaming Kemp (and Erickson for tweeting about the article):
Really Mr. Erickson… Give me a break… He’s in charge of the whole process… to some penance on that one..

So Kemp is to blame for this group ‘forgetting’ to hand in voter registrations?
Did you read the story? It’s says a “few students” and “several “ Not a “a lot”. The religious hypocrisy in you is strong.

Because you know, it’s ok if only a few people get screwed out of voting.
Fine. One group screwed up. BUT by any reasonable standard, is overseeing the rules of voting in an election in which you are a candidate NOT a HUGE conflict of interest? No? Don't see that? That is peachy? That's not more crooked than the crookedest thing Hillary ever did?🤔

Imagine being so wrapped up in your own narrative that you’re willing to defend a group literally suppressing voters.
We can’t even.
