Georgia State Rep. Angela Moore has been reelected to serve her community. However, the politician is under fire for allegedly pretending to be a member of Delta Sigma Theta, a historically Black sorority, throughout her campaign.

“Although Ms. Moore continues to represent herself in various forums as a member of Delta Sigma Theta, there are no records to support her membership,” read the letter penned by the sorority’s southern regional director, Amaris L. Johnson.

“As it relates to the election of the Georgia State Representative District 91, there is only one candidate (Dee Hawkins-Haigler) that is a duly initiated member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.,” Johnson continued in the letter, noting that they’ve received “numerous emails” questioning Moore’s status within the sorority.

Johnson clarified that the email was not sent to pledge support for any candidate and wished all of the Georgia members of Delta the very best in the past election.

“This email is not an endorsement for any candidate,” said Johnson. “However, I have received numerous emails regarding the membership status of candidate Angela Moore for the aforementioned position.”

At this time, her official bio on Georgia’s state website, as well as the information on her reelection site, omits that Moore has any affiliation with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
