(TargetLiberty.org) – Last Thursday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed his state’s new voter ID laws. Now President Biden is threatening legal action to force Georgia to change these laws back.

On March 25, Governor Kemp completed the process of upgrading Georgia’s electoral security by signing a bill that’s now been approved by the state house and senate. It’s a completely legal law on a matter that’s reserved to the states – but that isn’t stopping Biden from muscling in where he doesn’t belong.
On Friday, the president told reporters he has the Justice Department looking at the new law, which he described as “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.” Kemp immediately shot back, pointing out that anyone who compares the new law to Jim Crow obviously hasn’t even read it.
Georgia Democrats are furious at the reforms; one state representative had to be arrested after she became disruptive while Kemp signed the bill. It seems they may be desperate to hang on to any advantage poorly regulated absentee ballots give them – but, as Biden admitted Friday, “We don’t know quite exactly what we can do at this point.”
