Georgia Attorney General Candidate John Gordon Challenges Chris Carr on Uptick in Violent Crimes

ATLANTA, Georgia – Georgia Attorney General (AG) candidate John Gordon invited incumbent AG Chris Carr on Monday to participate in five debates on election fraud and violent crime rates before the primary election on May 24.

In a press release, Gordon stated, “John Gordon issues an invitation to AG Carr to address unprosecuted voter fraud, and the soaring rates of rape and murder.”

Gordon called out Carr for his failure to speak a word about election integrity at a “Conversation with the Candidates” event hosted by the Cobb County Republican Women’s Club (CCRWC) on May 3.

“I’ve worked hard and now I’ll work hard for each of you and for the people of Georgia, which is, unfortunately, more than I can say about my opponent, Chris ‘Do Nothing’ Carr,” stated Gordon.  Carr was spotted at the event by The Georgia Star News during the evening’s intermission, where he skirted around  election integrity questions.

Gordon addressed Carr directly again this week.

“The Georgia taxpayers have given Mr. Carr an additional $20.2 million dollars and despite all those extra resources he refuses to prosecute the serious voter fraud crimes referred by the Secretary of State,” he said.

Gordon said despite the drastically increased funding to Carr, “he has failed to protect our elections, or our citizens from violent crime.”

Gordon cited the 55 percent increase in murder, 236 percent increase in rape and crimes against women, and “the staggering increase in aggravated assault” as evidence that the incumbent is failing his duties as a public servant. Another figure mentioned was the “backlog of 1,996 untested rape kits.”

For the first debate, Gordon proposed discussing crucial voter fraud cases that were referred by Brad Raffensperger, which included Newton County Board of Elections, New Georgia Project, Agenda for the People, and Sophia Sharpe.

Gordon spoke about his take on the increase in violent crimes, “[Carr] has done nothing to stop violent crimes, rapes, and murders increasing by over 200 percent.” He added, “The citizens of Georgia are done asking. We demand an answer.”

The attorney general candidate concluded his announcement by giving Chris Carr his expectation, “I look forward to a public response from AG Carr regarding this invitation to debate by Wednesday, May 11, 2022.”
