And I don't even want you to vote for us just because we're Democrats.
Kemp is locked in a tight race with Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic leader in the Georgia House. The AP also reported that through a process Kemp calls "voter roll maintenance", his office has "cancelled over 1.4 million voter registrations since 2012" and that "nearly 670,000 registrations were cancelled in 2017 alone".
Already a historic matchup, with Abrams trying to become the first black woman elected governor in US history, it has morphed in recent weeks from a battle of clear ideological differences into a racially charged argument over ballot access and voter fraud.
In response, Kemp asked the FBI to investigate the Democratic Party for trying to hack the system.
According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, the lawyer for the election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday morning that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw.
Days before elections, Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is running a close-fought campaign for governor, says Democrats are under investigation for hacking the state's election system.
Stamos said he believed Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department specialists would be better positioned to investigate any hack.
The Democratic Party of Georgia is pushing back against the allegations.
That didn't stop Kemp's office from posting a notice on Georgia's Secretary of State website, which voters visit to check their registration status or find their polling place. The expert had reportedly been called in to take a look at any possible weaknesses in the system, and notified Kemp's office of a potential "massive vulnerability". To be very clear, Brian Kemp's scurrilous claims are 100 percent false, and this so-called investigation was unknown to the Democratic Party of Georgia until a campaign operative in Kemp's official office released a statement this morning. "And he should not get a promotion to a higher position, because he will constantly abuse that power, as well". Wright could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
In 2015, Kemp's office inadvertently released the Social Security numbers and other identifying information of millions of Georgia voters.
"Does the Georgia Secretary of State have the forensics capability and expertise necessary to investigate their own potential breach?"
Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman who has been secretary of state since 2010, has embraced President Donald Trump as he tries to extend GOP dominance in a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to its top job since 1998.
Independent computer scientists told The Associated Press that the flaw would enable anyone with access to an individual voter's personal information to log on to Georgia's MyVoter registration portal and alter or delete any voter's record, potentially causing havoc.
