Monday morning, David Worley, former head of the Democratic Party of Georgia and current State Election Board member called a press conference at the steps of the Georgia State Capitol to speak out against the now-iniquitous and vapid allegations of state Democrats hacking into the voter rolls alleged by current Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.

Flanked by current head of the Democratic Party, DuBose Porter, Worley said it is not normal procedure in an investigation to issue a press release before notifying the board. Worley also added he first heard of the Secretary of State’s investigation into Democrats was when he received a telephone call into Sunday Mass.

“I have conducted myself on the State Election Board in a non-partisan way,” Worley explained when asked of his party affiliation. “Once Kemp began running for Governor, he began acting in a much more partisan way. An example of that is two years ago when the Department of Homeland Security volunteered to provide funds to the state to ensure the state’s voter election systems were protected. I begged Secretary Kemp to take that money and protect the voting system. He refused to do that as he was gearing up for his campaign.”

“Frankly, I was so outraged yesterday morning when I found out that a taxpayer-paid employee of the Secretary of State put out a press release saying the Democratic Party of Georgia were subject of a criminal investigation which we now know for a fact is not the case. When it turns out that yesterday’s news that the Secretary of State has this evidence of how this timeline was laid out, and he still put out this lie. I felt like I had to step forward today to say something. It’s just wrong. It makes me question what Secretary Kemp will do tomorrow and going forward if there’s a runoff.”

Worley says there are vulnerabilities and everything will go smoothly tomorrow. Worley added the state should move to paper ballots after this election.

“He put out a lie to make people doubt the results of the election because he’s going to lose tomorrow” Porter said. “But we’re asking people to go vote, vote like you never have and throw this rascal out for all the deeds he’s done.”
