Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp confirms to InsiderAdvantage today that his office, which oversees elections and election irregularities, has launched a probe into a special May 24 district City Council election in Sandy Springs. The district special election was hastily approved by the City Council to fill the seat vacated by the resigned freshman Graham McDonald.

Taxpayer cost estimates for the controversial special balloting are around $75,000.

Issues of concern initially appear to revolve around lack of voter access to Council district’s polling places and absentee ballot problems.
