Georgia slammed with federal lawsuit over the state’s election integrity law

Governor Kemp just signed a perfectly reasonable election integrity law that requires photo ID for absentee ballots, fewer drop boxes that will be kept indoors and monitored, and expanding in-person voting. For that, he was hit with a federal lawsuit.

The photo ID for absentee ballots will prevent ballot harvesting.

Also, and this is a big one, cities and counties must keep counting votes non-stop once the polls close. No more burst pipes to interrupt counting.

These are all common sense fixes, but Democrats are infuriated. Democrats are on their way to enshrining voter fraud into law with HR-1/S-1.

The companion bills will not supersede state law and right now, quite a few states are considering similar laws to Georgia’s.

THUS THE LAWSUITS

The Hill reports that voting rights groups [Democrat operatives] on Thursday night filed a lawsuit just hours after Georgia enacted the law.

The 35-page complaint filed in federal court in Atlanta alleges that minority voters will be hit especially hard by the new legislation. They are using the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to accuse the Governor and legislature of suppressing voters’ rights.

It’s absurd. The law is perfectly reasonable.

According to the lawsuit, the new restrictions are “clearly intended to and will have the effect of making it harder for lawful Georgia voters to participate in the State’s elections,” adding that it will impose “unjustifiable burdens” that disproportionately impact people of color, as well as young, poor and disabled voters.

“…disproportionately impact people of color…” This is the same garbage Democrats always spew about any law designed to protect the integrity of our election process. They say it so often it almost sounds racist. It’s as if they are saying that ‘people of color’ are less capable of doing things that white people can do, like getting an ID and bringing it when they vote, or applying on time for an absentee ballot.

President Trump praised the governor for tightening up the laws, but this comes as HR-1/S-1 is nearing a vote in the Senate. It has already been passed in the House.

Democrats want to burn up the Constitution, election integrity, and the Republican Party. They want all the power all the time.

No problem showing ID for beer, weed (where legal), blunt wraps (under glass at the Sack N’ Save), entry into the rump twerking strip club or massage parlor? (racist!)

Now we
are going to be treated to the usual racist stuff of minorities can’t vote as they don’t have ID’s.. Ask them if they are getting welfare as that takes TWO ID’s and I bet most of the scam artists are on welfare.. The communist democrats absolutely do NOT want fair voting.. They lose every time. This is going to have to be spread to every state and soon.. The SCOTUS has already OK’d voter ID, so they shouldn’t be a problem. In addition, the CONSTITUTION gives this authority solely and directly to the State Legislatures

This lawsuit needs to be thrown out of court immediately. The Constitution grants the right to vote in American elections only to American citizens. Proving that you are an American citizen protects that right.

Why not sue these people who have the list of people that cannot vote because of the claim of voter suppression. If people who cannot vote are already identified, then why not just send that list to the GA state voter registration office so they can contact them with instructions on how to vote correctly? Why is the legal group who have already identified a block of people who are eligible to vote disenfranchising them with voter suppression? If they don’t share the list with the GA government then is this not voter suppression in itself? A counter suit should be filed immediately…
