What's really going on down in Georgia

Albert Hunt, opinion contributor

Georgia's Republican state legislature - after an election fueled by a huge Black turnout that helped elect a Democratic president and two Democratic U.S. Senators for the first time in a quarter century - passed legislation to make the franchise easier for these voters ... That's what Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and other apologists for the Georgia voter suppression measure want you to believe.

If you do, you would have been a perfect foil for the late Bernie Madoff's investments scams.

Under the pretense of rooting out voter fraud - a Donald Trump inspired lie about the election that was refuted by counts and recounts, by Republican state officials and the courts - GOP dominated state legislatures are trying to make voting harder, especially targeting mail ballots used extensively by Democrats during the pandemic. Oblivious to criticism of voter suppression, these efforts are gathering steam around the country.

Trump carried Florida; Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis boasted it was a very well-run election. Still, DeSantis and Republican legislators are moving to crack down on mail voting, limiting drop boxes where mail ballots can be deposited, and making it harder to get these ballots.

1. what they cant understand. democrats are, as a group, smarter. they were quicker

to use what resources were available, quicker to avoid covid risks when possible.

if the resources are not available they will go vote anyway.

do these idiots think democrats only vote when its convenient?
the harder they kick us, the higher we will stand up.
