Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger warned this week that the blistering criticism Democrats are slinging at Georgia’s new voting law may be a cover for their objective of taking control of elections through sweeping election reform at the federal level.
Last month, Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed Georgia’s new voting law, a 98-page bill dubbed SB 202, prompting an immediate outcry from critics who declared the law “Jim Crow 2.0.” Democrats condemned the law as severely restricting voting access, especially for voters of color, while President Biden called the law an “atrocity” and said that his Justice Department is reviewing it.
“I believe at the end of the day, most things become very political,” Raffensperger said Wednesday in an interview with The Daily Wire.
Georgia’s secretary of state cautioned that a mammoth election reform bill recently passed by the House could be the impetus behind the vehement response from Democrats. House Democrats passed the For the People Act, otherwise known as HR-1, with zero Republican votes last month.
