Do Biden and Stacey Abrams Owe Georgia Voters an Apology? – Watch
Election officials in Georgia are looking for an apology from leaders like President Joe Biden and Democrat Stacey Abrams. They both claimed that an election integrity law had created a modern-day Jim Crow situation in the state.
Georgia passed the Election Integrity Act of 2021, and Democrats said the law restricts voting rights and discriminates against minority voters.
“This is Jim Crow in the 21st Century. It must end. We have a moral and constitutional obligation to act,” Biden said last March.
Abrams flat out called the law “racist” and she said that it was a redux of Jim Crow dressed up in a suit and a tie. She also declared that the law was passed because there were more people of color who voted and the outcome of the election was changed in a direction that Republicans do not approve of.
The COO for the Georgia secretary of state, Gabriel Sterling, said that Democratic politicians owe the people of Georgia an apology.
The reason for all this fervor is that voters in Georgia have blown away early voting turnout records in the state. As of Sunday morning, almost three-quarters of a million voters had voted in person early. In the same time period in previous midterm elections, there were just over 400,000 voters that turned out early.
Between those who have voted in person and those who have sent in absentee ballots, over 800,000 Georgians have already cast their 2022 ballots for the midterms. That number continues to grow.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) explained, “We’re on track to break records in terms of voter turnout in every category.”
“How many turnout records do we have to break before Stacey Abrams and President Biden apologize to Georgia?” Sterling said in a statement to Fox News.
Take a look at this Twitter post:
As of this morning, we've seen 837,597 ballots cast in Georgia. 758,808 early in person & 78,789 absentees accepted. That means we should pass the 1 million mark by tomorrow, a full 2 weeks before Election Day. A record numbers of voters for a midterm. #gapol #PlanYourVote pic.twitter.com/8e36qQF9NR
