Georgia: Election Group Founded By Stacey Abrams Didn’t Report Millions In Spending

Georgia’s state election commission is alleging that the New Georgia Project, an election group founded by Stacey Abrams, didn’t disclose millions in expenses.

They claim that the New Georgia project didn’t disclose $3 million in electioneering expenses and over $4 million in political contributions. This is required by law.

Just The News reported:

Georgia officials this week alleged that an election group founded by state Democratic superstar Stacey Abrams worked in partnership with an action fund and failed to report upwards of $7 million in spending as required by state law.

The complaint filed by the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission alleges that the New Georgia Project “failed to disclose” about $7.3 million in expenditures to both political organizations and third-party vendors.

The disputed expenditures occurred from 2017-2019. The complaint was first filed in 2019, with the state filing an amended complaint this week.

The commission is said that the New Georgia Project and the Action Fund illegally canvassed for Democratic candidates including Abrams.

Axios reported: 

The commission alleges that in 2018 the New Georgia Project and the Action Fund illegally canvassed for Democratic candidates including Abrams, used phone bank scripts pushing people to vote Democratic and included “#teamAbrams” in social media posts soliciting donations. It also targets the group for work on a 2019 Gwinnett County MARTA referendum vote.

The Action Fund is a 501(c)(4), which is authorized to conduct some political activities.

New Georgia Project is a nonprofit and risks losing its tax-exempt status if it engages in partisan advocacy or endorses a candidate.

Georgia’s state election commission is planning on holding a hearing on August 1st.
