“Republicans tried to disenfranchise over 300,000 Georgia voters. This victory means 4,000 voters in two counties are protected.”
—Marc Elias, Majority Forward

More proof that the Republican Party is not a legitimate American, Democratic, Party but an organized criminal syndicate that has to cheat to win.

THAT’S Happy New from Georgia –

though I think GOP was able to get at least half of their “early voting” sites shut down?

But this protects 4,000 votes in Georgia and is an admirable stance against GOP purges.

It is fortunate that GOP has dealt honestly – as far as we can see – in Georgia re Election
for the most part – considering the corruption that Trump was encouraging them to perform.

The Republicans are relentless in their efforts to suppress the votes and steal the elections. That’s the only way they can win. I can only imagine their outrage and lawsuits if the two Republicans lose the run off elections.

So many rank-and-file members of both parties vote strictly out of party loyalty. The “debates” are debacles. Simple slogans and promises oft not kept rule the day. We need civics education in this country more than ever. At this point we also need to shackle quite a few of the Republican apparatchiks who pull off this shit. Put them in stocks in the public square where they belong and staple gun their crimes to their chests. That would be a good place to begin civics education.

Enough already, with the attempt to rule and stall via a steady diet of lawsuits.

Yes, this is nothing but an attempt at a lawsuit Coup d’ Etat.

The same outrage Trump has had, when he realized he didn’t cheat enough to win.

So if you are a board member and break voting laws there is no penalty, you dont get fired, fined, or like sooooo many other classes, imprisoned.

Republican mantra—when you can’t win on the merits --lie , cheat and steal

The Republicans didn’t just try to get rid of voters; they actually did remove 198,000 voters from the rolls in Georgia for the recent election, and have closed 11 polling stations in minority areas and none in white areas. Stopping them from doing a few thousand more is not enough. The 200,000 must be restored and the polling places opened again immediately. Or the Georgia Republican headquarters should be blockaded, occupied, and shut down until they are restored.

Nowhere did the article here tell enough of that truth.
