Kempe, whose office announced the investigation in a Sunday morning news release, didn't reveal any details of the probe, which comes on the heels of a court victory by Democrats, who successfully challenged the state's attempt to de-register 50,000 voters under the state's "exact match" voter ID law, according to the Daily Caller.
"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber-crimes,"Kempe press secretary Candice Broce said in the release. Both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have been alerted.
The state Democratic Party has called the allegations "100% false" and "an abuse of power" by Kempe. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, a computer scientist and attorney who are currently suing Kempe said that the lawsuit is "an attempt to distract from a report about vulnerabilities in the state's voter registration website."
The "vulnerabilities" could potentially allow anybody to access the voting records of individual voters.
Poll numbers between Kempe and his opponent, Democrat Stacy Abrams, have tightened to within a two percentage point margin as Abrams has benefited from several celebrity endorsements, including the support of Oprah Winfrey, who joined Abrams in knocking on doors last week.
