A liberal law professor at George Washington University, Jonathan Turley believes that Joe Biden and Merrick Garland made a huge mistake by suing Georgia over their voter integrity laws. He is right.
Currently, liberal Democrats and their media lapdogs have been lying right along about what is in the bill. But, in a lawsuit, the truth will come out and that will be a disaster for Democrats.
People may not understand the bill but once a judge rules on the bill, they will have a much better understanding of the bill. And the fact that they throw out all of the points made by the DOJ will lead them to believe the Democrats and the media lied to them.
Their main two objections to the bill are voter ID and signature matching. That’s because without either of those two provisions will make it much easier for them to cheat.
Democrats claim that forcing people to show a photo ID disenfranchises people of color. This is just horse pucky. You need a photo ID to buy a beer. You need a photo ID to get food stamps, housing help, and Medicaid.
In states that have established voter ID laws have not seen a drop off of Black and Hispanic voters. matching signatures is just common sense to make sure every vote is a legal vote. If your vote comes from you and not a ballot harvester will not invalidate your vote.
The DOJ stated:
“The United States’ complaint contends that several provisions of Senate Bill 202 were adopted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race. The Justice Department’s lawsuit alleges that the cumulative and discriminatory effect of these laws—particularly on Black voters—was known to lawmakers and that lawmakers adopted the law despite this.”
Turley predicted the Biden administration “may ultimately regret” its legal challenge of Georgia’s law:
“I’m highly skeptical and I think they may ultimately regret this move. It could indeed clarify this issue in a way the Biden administration does not want. This is a very dubious case in my view because the Georgia law has great overlap with other states, like Delaware.”
“One of the issues that the court may ultimately amplify is that elections were left in the Constitution to the state. Alexander Hamilton actually wrote in the federalist papers imagine if the federal government was to take over the management of elections and he basically said we would all object. Well, that’s what’s happening now in Congress they are trying to essentially federalize elections and I think they are going to have a serious pushback on this lawsuit.”
