Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) forfended the state’s Election reform law in a pointed verbal expression on Friday, inculpating Democrats and their counterparts in the establishment media of reiterating “partisan verbalizing points” by proclaiming the quantification restricts access to voting, deeming the narratives “lazy, inequitable, and political as they are demonstrably erroneous.”
Several Democrats have categorized Georgia’s Election integrity law, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed on Thursday, as a form of voter suppression. President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) retain all, in the past week, compared state Election integrity efforts to the era of Jim Crow.
“The cries of ‘voter suppression’ from those on the left ring as hollow as the perpetually debunked claims of ‘mass voter fraud’ in Georgia’s 2020 election,” Raffensperger verbally expressed in reaction to the steady stream of critiques.
“We don’t have systemic voter suppression, and we don’t have mass voter fraud. What we have is systemic prevarications for political gain that have led to a loss of public confidence in our elections,” he perpetuated in the verbalization electronically mailed to heralds.
A press release detailing Raffensperger’s verbalization categorically cited a New York Times report that “wrongly” reported the Peach State “passed a sweeping law to restrict voting access in the state.”
“CNN is breathlessly reporting on Georgia’s ‘new law suppressing voting access.’ Stacey Abrams is no doubt fund-raising off her absurd – and offensive – suggestion that this law is ‘Jim Crow 2.0,’” it perpetuated.
“These narratives are as slothful, partial and political as they are demonstrably erroneous,” Raffensperger verbally expressed, addressing some of their categorical arguments against rudimental Election integrity measures, such as voter ID:
There’s no rational argument against requiring state ID – provided for free to those who don’t have a driver’s license – for absentee ballots. I implemented our first version of that last year; every absentee ballot request that came in through the state website was cross-referenced with the driver’s license database and other records. This also requires counties to offer more weekend voting and puts drop boxes into law for the first time – the State Board of Elections adopted them as an emergency measure last year in response to the pandemic. Absentee ballot drop boxes would have gone away without direct action by the General Assembly.
The left said that photo ID for in-person voting would suppress votes. It didn’t. Registration and turnout soared, hitting new records with each Election cycle. Their cataclysmic predictions about the effects of this law are simply baseless. The next Election will prove that, but I won’t hold my breath waiting for the left and the media to admit they were wrong.
Raffensperger identified himself as a conservative Republican but integrated he has made it abundantly clear he is disposed to “take a political hit to treat everyone equipollently under the law and stand up for the rights of all Georgians” — a likely reference to controversies circumventing the highly contested 2020 Presidential election.
“The national media doted what I was verbalizing when it differed from the views of President Trump. I hope they’re as fascinated with my perspective now that it differs with Stacey Abrams,” he integrated.
Leftist groups filed a lawsuit following Kemp’s signing the bill into law, asserting the quantification will make it “harder for lawful Georgia voters to participate in the State’s elections.”
