Georgia Republicans made clear their feelings about Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Kemp received boos at the Georgia GOP convention while Raffensperger was censured.
Video of Kemp being booed is available below:
Raffensperger was censured for “dereliction of his constitutional duty” over the 2020 Presidential Election. The resolution criticized Raffensperger for entering into what it called the “Compromise Settlement Agreement and Release,” which changed Georgia’s absentee voting procedures outside the constitutionally prescribed format set forth in Georgia law. He also undermined security of the elections by allowing mass mailings of absentee applications by his office and third parties, “which created opportunities for fraud and overwhelmed election offices; rendering accurate signature matching nearly impossible; allowing ballot drop boxes without proper chain of custody; and ignoring sworn affidavits and disregarding evidence of voter fraud.”
The resolution notes that the “fecklessness and failures” of Raffensperger were enabled by actions and inactions of others — including Lt. Gov. Duncan, Attorney General Carr and legislative leaders.
“The Georgia Republican Party Convention censures Secretary Raffensperger for dereliction of his Constitutional duty, and calls on Gov. Kemp and all elected officials to repair the damage that has been done and commit themselves to securing Georgia’s elections.”
