Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger filed a lawsuit against the Biden Justice Department for information about the department’s lawsuit against Georgia’s election integrity law.
The lawsuit seeks to enforce a FOIA request sent by Raffensperger months ago to understand the motivation behind the Justice Department’s initial case.
“Considering how blatantly political the Biden lawsuit against Georgia’s commonsense election law was from the beginning, it’s no surprise they would stonewall our request for basic transparency,” Raffensperger said, per Just the News. “I will always fight for truth and integrity in Georgia’s elections.”
Indeed, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit in June challenging Georgia’s previously enacted Election Integrity Act of 2021.
Raffensperger filed an information request to obtain communications by the Justice Department, Congress and other government entities about the case. However, over 90 days later, he has yet to receive a response.
The lawsuit notes that the Justice Department’s lack of response deprives “Plaintiffs and the public of vital information needed to determine the extent to which and by what methods the Government is colluding or conspiring with outside entities to carry out a political agenda.”
