Talk about a conflict of interest.
On Monday, a U.S. District Court Judge blocked 2 Georgia counties from removing roughly 4,000 “targeted voters” from the rolls in the upcoming U.S. Senate runoff election.
The voters allegedly had moved out of the county, therefore making their votes illegal.
Election boards in each county approved to remove the contested voters from the rolls.
However, the federal judge reviewing the case overruled the decision.
And who was the judge?
Leslie Abrams Gardner.
The sister of Democrat darling Stacey Abrams.
A federal judge in Georgia on Monday ordered two counties to reverse a decision removing more than 4,000 voters from the rolls…

NEW: Judge blocks purge of 4,000+ voters from rolls in 2 Georgia counties based on shaky postal data. Counties had asked Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner to step aside because she is Stacy Abrams' sister. w/@kyledcheney https://t.co/6Dzwgsevao

This is a truly wild story. A federal judge blocked a voter list cleanup in two Georgia counties.
The judge is Stacey Abrams' sister and Fair Fight, the org run by Stacey Abrams, donated $2.5 million to the super pac that brought the lawsuithttps://t.co/Bp09cF8UQv

This ruling should’ve been cut and dry.
If the voters moved away from the county or live outside the county they’re registered, their votes shouldn’t count for that jurisdiction.
But Stacey Abrams and her Democrat allies will stoop to every possible low to steal another Georgia election.
And they don’t even attempt to hide their flagrant corruption anymore.
This makes no sense. A judge (the sister of Stacey Abrams) ruled that when someone tells the US Postal Service they have moved they still can vote from their old address.
Rules have no meaning any more. This is nuts. https://t.co/X9FUkto3td

Why would Democrats stop cheating?
Despite the mountains of evidence, they’ve yet to be punished for 2020’s massive election fraud.
You can expect this to continue.
The Muscogee County’s election board even requested that Gardner be removed from the case given her relationship to Stacey Abrams.
But that request was denied.
Politico reported on the shady conflict of interest:
The judge, Leslie Abrams Gardner — the sister of former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a prominent ally of President-elect Joe Biden who has led voter registration efforts across the state — concluded that the counties appeared to have improperly relied on unverified change-of-address data to invalidate registrations in the two counties.
The bulk of the registrations that the counties sought to rescind, more than 4,000, were in Muscogee County, which Biden won handily in November. An additional 150 were from Ben Hill County, which Trump won by a wide margin.
After Gardner’s ruling, Elias hailed the decision as a “blow to GOP voter suppression.”
“We continue to monitor how other Georgia counties respond to the suppression scheme,” he added. “Where necessary, we will sue and we will win.”
The evidence to challenge the 4,000 registrations in Muscogee County was particularly sparse. The challenge was lodged Dec. 14 by a local voter named Ralph Russell who alleged that he had compared evidence from publicly accessible voter registration databases to prove that these voters had moved out of Georgia.
“I believe that each of the individuals named … as a result of registering their name and change of address to a location outside of Muscogee County, removed to another state with the intention of making the new state their residence,” Russell told the county board. “Thus, each individual has lost their residence in Muscogee County, and consequently, each individual is ineligible to vote in Muscogee County.”
The Muscogee board met Dec. 16 and backed Russell’s motion 3-1, even though he didn’t attend the meeting and provided no additional evidence to support his challenge. Voters on Russell’s list, per the board, would be required to vote by provisional ballot and present additional evidence of residency to vote.
In Ben Hill County, the board voted 2-1 to support a challenge lodged by Tommy Roberts, a member of the City Council in Fitzgerald, Ga. Roberts similarly relied on change-of-address data, and the board backed him despite evidence that the data could not be verified and would be inadmissible in court.
“Despite this advice from the County Attorney, the Ben Hill Board voted to find that there was probable cause to sustain the challenges,” Gardner noted.
Gardner’s 11-page ruling released Monday night noted that the removals of the voters appeared to violate federal law because they were not given proper notice and because they qualify as the type of systematic voter roll cleaning that is not permitted within 90 days of a federal election.
The Muscogee board filed a motion earlier Monday arguing that Gardner must remove herself from the case based on her relationship with her sister, Abrams.
Lawyers for the board, described Abrams as “a Georgia politician and voting rights activist who was the Democratic candidate in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election and has since engaged in various highly publicized efforts to increase voter registration and turnout for the 2020 general election in Georgia.”
Even if voters move from Georgia, Democrats will find a way to count the votes if they benefit their candidate.
With the amount of corruption plaguing Georgia in the 2020 presidential election, Stacey Abrams and her Democrat allies will use every trick in the book in the Senate runoffs.
No matter how obvious to the public.
The Blaze also commented on these developments:
Abrams, after losing her run for governor in 2018, has become a vocal proponent of increasing voter registration in the state. Earlier this month, the Georgia secretary of state’s office announced it had launched an investigation into the New Georgia Project, a third-party registration group founded by Abrams, for “repeatedly and aggressively” seeking to register “ineligible, out-of-state, or deceased voters” ahead of the runoff elections.
In the motion, lawyers for the board described Abrams as “a Georgia politician and voting rights activist who was the Democratic candidate in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election and has since engaged in various highly publicized efforts to increase voter registration and turnout for the 2020 general election in Georgia.”
This week, during an interview on CNN, Abrams charged that “Republicans do not know how to win without voter suppression as one of their tools.”
No Stacey, Democrats don’t know how to win without cheating.
