GOP Nails the Weaponizing of the DOJ Against Georgia Election Law

The Democrats failed to push through HR. 1/ S. 1, their voting power grab — essentially an attempt to nationalize and control elections, contrary to the intent of the Constitution.

So, what was the next move? The DOJ, under Joe Biden’s attorney general then tries the alternative — to go after the states with the laws that would provide better election security, now suing Georgia, with the absolute lie that the Georgia law is somehow discriminatory against black voters. This, of course, is just the first step, as AG Merrick Garland made clear.

Translation: they’re going after the other election security laws in other states as well. If they can’t get what they want by hook, they will get it by crook, and claim they’re the ones “saving democracy,” as they try to interfere in the passing of election security laws.

But sure, there’s no politicizing of the DOJ there, and it’s just coincidence that one event followed the other.

Republicans are not shy about calling it what it is.

Gov. Brian Kemp blasted the action in a series of tweets.

This lawsuit is born out of the lies and misinformation the Biden administration has pushed against Georgia’s Election Integrity Act from the start. Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, and their allies tried to force an unconstitutional elections power grab through Congress – and failed.

Now, they are weaponizing the U.S. Department of Justice to carry out their far-left agenda that undermines election integrity and empowers federal government overreach in our democracy.

As Secretary of State, I fought the Obama Justice Department twice to protect the security of our elections – and won.

So, here’s a question for Garland. If this is all on the up and up and you’re really just (wrongly) concerned about ‘restrictions’ in the law, why aren’t you concerned about the New York law which is more restrictive in parts? Why are you trying to undo the law that was legally passed, trying to undo the will of the people?

It’s more than a little troubling that the DOJ is being used to seemingly pursue a partisan agenda.
