It’s difficult to understand how these Trumplicans can break federal laws then claim the federal government is taking away their state rights. The Voting Rights Act was put in place to prevent the kinds of abuses that states were doing in the 1960s. This VRA has has broad bipartisan support for many decades and was holding the states in check until the SCOTUS struck down part of it in Shelby County v. Holder. Now the Trumplicans are accusing the feds of “weaponizing” the laws.

Quote:

<< Kemp issued a statement following Garland’s announcement accusing the Biden Administration of “weaponizing” the Justice Department “to carry out their far-left agenda that undermines election integrity and empowers federal government overreach in our democracy.”

“This lawsuit is born out of the lies and misinformation the Biden administration has pushed against Georgia‚Äôs Election Integrity Act from the start,” Kemp said. >>

That’s lunacy.
