ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Primus Industries aide accused of taking a mentally challenged Albany man to vote and then influencing that vote has been suspended while the investigation continues.

In October, the Secretary of State's office of Inspector General and the Department of Human Resources launched investigations. A Primus Industries worker took Jack Justice to vote without his family's permission.

Justice claims he wanted to vote for John McCain, but the aide chose Barack Obama. Justice's family wanted a resolution before election day, but they are pleased some action has been taken.

"I hate that it had to happen, but he needed to know he did something wrong. Jackie talk all the time about he wanted to revote and of course they didn't ever tell us he could," Nancy Justice, Jack's sister.

Both the DHR and Secretary of State investigations remain open. The Secretary of State's office plans to review their investigation at the Election Board's December meeting.
