Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement after Democrats on the House Oversight Committee opened an investigation into alleged voting issues within the state of Georgia:

“Chairman Cummings’ request makes one thing clear: Democrats are bringing out their full arsenal of weapons to relitigate November’s election in preparation for an upcoming election. Elections within the state of Georgia are just that – an issue to be addressed by state and local officials within our state. The fact that a U.S. congressional committee is inserting themselves into a statewide issue squarely outside of their jurisdiction exposes their purely political objectives.

"Democrats alleging voter suppression after an election results in an unfavorable outcome is becoming a growing trend. They questioned the outcome of the 2016 presidential election after their candidate lost, and now they’re still relitigating the 2018 gubernatorial race. It’s past time they accept the decisions of the American people and move on.”
