Brad Raffensperger and Chris Carr Are Too Partisan

Thanks to President Biden’s CHIPS Act, a semiconductor manufacturing factory in a heavily Republican part of Ohio is going to be built. The residents of Licking County, Ohio, will benefit from the well-paying jobs it will bring to their community. The fact that it is being built in an area where few voted for Biden is immaterial. I wish that Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Attorney General Chris Carr had the same attitude.

The Fulton County elections office and elections board have been under investigation by the secretary of state for maleficence since the 2020 election. Nothing has been found. However, in Coffee County, an election denier group was given access to the county’s voting equipment to copy data from its election server, ballot scanners and memory cards that store votes. The aforementioned is not in dispute.

A serious review of Coffee County’s election breach hasn’t been forthcoming, even though Raffensperger and Carr have known about it since January 2021. It took a lawsuit this year by private citizens to find documents showing that allies of then-President Trump and their computer experts gained access to sensitive voting files. Could Coffee and Fulton be examples of uneven enforcement because Fulton County is reliably Democratic and Coffee County is reliably Republican?

Our president doesn’t care that heavily Republican areas benefit from legislation passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s about fairness and the right thing to do, not about party. We should expect the same from Raffensperger and Carr.
