The Georgia Ethics Commission will move ahead with a case against a group founded by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, saying it was likely it violated campaign law during her first run for governor four years ago.

The commission is targeting The New Georgia Project, a voter registration non-profit Abrams founded in 2013, and an affiliate, the New Georgia Project Action Fund. The commission unanimously approved on Monday a series of motions saying that “reasonable grounds exist that New Georgia Project and New Georgia Project Action Fund violated campaign finance law.”
