*Election officials in Georgia are denying allegations that Usher was given “preferential treatment” after the R&B singer was whisked to the front of the line at a polling station in Atlanta.
Ursh cast his ballot at a community center in the suburb of Roswell, where workers were accused of allowing the singer to skip the long line because of his celebrity status.
Some of the folks in that line vented to local news station WSBT and county election officials have now released a statement defending their decision to take the star through a back entrance.
The statement, released to WSBT reads: “(The) Poll Manager… was directed to ensure that Mr. Raymond’s presence would not become a distraction by taking necessary measures to move Mr. Raymond through the process as expeditiously as possible. At no point was this decision made for preferential treatment, but to minimize and avoid a distraction at the poll.”
