In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, a group with ties to Georgia Democrats Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock is under investigation for sending ballot applications to non-Georgia residents. That is a felony.

A voter registration group that was led by Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock until earlier this year is under investigation for allegedly sending ballot applications to non-residents, the Georgia secretary of state announced on Monday.

The New Georgia Project, where Warnock served as CEO until February, is one of four voter sign-up groups being probed for improper registration activities, Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger said in a press conference.

While Raffensperger said he has not seen indications of systemic fraud, he said there is evidence of “third-party groups working to register people in other states to vote here in Georgia.”

The New Georgia Project is a “nonpartisan effort to register and civically engage Georgians,” according to its website. The group, which was founded by failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, has registered “nearly 400,000 people from underrepresented communities to vote in Georgia,” its website claims.

Just as a reminder, this is not Raphael Warnock’s first brush with the law. Earlier this year, he was accused by his wife of running over her foot with his car after they got in an argument. And in 2002, Warnock was accused of hindering a police investigation into child abuse.

As for this particular alleged crime, it serves as one more indication of the Pandora’s Box Democrats opened this year with their push for mail-in voting on a global scale.
