Liberal Group Pledges to Stop Georgia Legislators

(TargetLiberty.org) – A left-wing political action committee (PAC) called iVote has pledged $10 million to mount an attack on Georgia lawmakers over the state’s new voting integrity law. The bill was signed by Governor Brian Kemp (R) last week after approval by the state legislature. It expands early voting but tightens the rules to make sure voters are who they say they are – and it seems the Dems don’t like that idea.

The Democrats were furious, framing it as “voter suppression” and claiming it strips millions of Georgians of the right to vote. In fact, it doesn’t strip anyone of the right to vote; its main effect is to ensure mail-in ballots meet the same standard of verification as in-person ones.

Liberals are claiming Black voters find it difficult to arrange photo ID, so the new law unfairly bars them from voting. Now the iVote PAC says it’s going to campaign to unseat the legislators who voted the law through, and it says it will spend $10 million to make it happen.
