A federal civil lawsuit is underway in Georgia to determine if a conservative Texas-based vote monitoring organization violated the Voting Rights Act.

Ahead of Georgia’s 2021 runoff election, the conservative voting organization True the Vote challenged the eligibility of more than 300,000 registered voters in Georgia.

Shortly after, Fair Fight — a voting rights group founded by Democrat Stacey Abrams — filed a lawsuit against True the Vote, claiming the organization intimidated voters, offered a $1 million bounty for evidence of fraud and threatened to recruit former military personnel to monitor polling locations.

On Thursday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Cianti Stewart-Reid, the executive director of Fair Fight, discusses the details of her organization’s claims.
