Jimmy Carter speaks out for a fair election in his home state: In Georgia, Stacey Abrams may become the nation’s first black woman governor in America. President Jimmy Carter, with decades behind him of monitoring fair elections all over the world, has called on partisan secretaries of state to step aside from the oversight of elections where they are candidates. The Republican running against Abrams, GA Secretary of State Brian Kemp, cannot rightly preside over this election, and President Carter has called on him to step aside and leave the election in neutral hands. This, after Kemp put 53,000 voter registrations on hold, the vast majority of them from African-Americans. This demand for fairness and neutrality in election oversight should apply in every state; The Nation is calling it the Carter Standard. UPDATE: Judge rules thousands of Georgia residents must be able to vote.
