    Georgia's Secretary of State Brian Kemp (now running for Governor) has purged voter rolls & is now freezing tens of thousands of voter registration forms through "exact match" tests. 70% of the frozen registrations are from black applicants.

    This comes after the GOP tried, but thankfully failed to close 7 out of 9 voting precincts in a majority black county in Georgia earlier this year.
