Georgia Dems complain about GOP absentee ballots
AP reports: Georgia Democrats say a campaign mailer sent out by their Republican counterparts broke state law by attaching absentee ballots to literature urging voters to support the GOP.
In a letter Tuesday to the state Elections Board, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairman Bobby Kahn said the mailer - sent to Republican voters by the state Republican Party - violates a law created by the Legislature in 2001. ...
State law, passed in 2001, forbids anyone from distributing absentee ballots that also advocate for or against a candidate, issue or party.
Democrats say the law was prompted by the 2000 election, when state Republicans sent out a similar mass mailing. -- Dems' complaint calls GOP mailing illegal (AP via Tallahassee.com)
