LaDawn Blackett Jones is the city solicitor for South Fulton, GA, a new city in the southern part of Fulton County, which also contains Atlanta. In a courtroom, Jones offered defendants $50.00 off citations if they registered to vote or showed proof they are registered to vote.
She even bragged about it on social media.
It is a felony under federal and Georgia law to offer anyone anything of value to register to vote. But this city solicitor is offering reductions of fines in court. That is something of value.
Of course, she is a Democrat supporting Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for Governor in Georgia, so I won't hold my breath on anything happening. But it certainly seems like this is something the federal Department of Justice should look into.
