Seriously, Karen Handel put her suppression efforts to paper...Warning, now more people can vote?
The ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and four other voting rights organization who argued the 90-day cut off for registration before the run-off violated the National Voter Registration Act. That law states that all eligible citizens should be allowed to vote if they register at least 30 days before an election.
Handel, who previously ran Georgia’s elections, is herself a pioneering vote suppressor. Shortly before the 2008 election, she spearheaded an illegal purge of Georgia’s rolls and flagged thousands of voter registrations as potential non-citizens. Many of the voters affected were actually eligible American citizens.
