Liberal Fact-Checker: Biden is Wrong on Georgia Election Law, It Expands Voting Opportunities for Georgians

A fact-checker with left-leaning Washington Post reviewed Biden’s recent comments bashing a new election bill passed in Georgia after he claimed it was “racist” a remnant of “Jim Crow” and seeks to disenfranchise minority voters. Liberal fact-checker Glenn Kessler found that some of President Biden’s remarks on the bill are false and the legislation actually serves to expand voting measures across the state- which is exactly what Republican Governor Brian Kemp said it seeks to do.

Kessler focused on two claims made by Biden last week that the bill purposefully seeks to limit polling hours so that working Georgians can’t easily vote after work.

On March 25, Biden said “What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work.”

The next day Biden falsely claimed, “Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

The Daily Wire reports:

“On Election Day in Georgia, polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and if you are in line by 7 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot. Nothing in the new law changes those rules,” The Post reported. “However, the law did make some changes to early voting. But experts say the net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.”

“One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional,” Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting said. “Counties can have early voting open as long as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at minimum. If you live in a larger metropolitan county, you might not notice a change. For most other counties, you will have an extra weekend day, and your weekday early voting hours will likely be longer.”

Kessler writes that The Washington Post has “no clue” where Biden got the idea that the ordinary workers would have their voting opportunities limited because Georgia would “end voting at five o’clock.” The report explains that the law makes specific what normal business hours are—from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.—in part because “some rural county election offices only worked part time during the week, not a full eight-hour day, so the shift to more specific times makes it clear they must be open every weekday for at least eight hours.”

The report notes that Fulton County, which is a deep blue county, “set early-voting hours at 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on most weekdays and two Saturdays, though the last weekdays had 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. voting hours,” and “voting was allowed on two Sundays between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m.” The report said that Fulton County “could set the exact same hours for in-person early voting — or expand them from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.”

Clearly, President Biden has not read the bill before issuing his blatantly false remarks.

  1. WHAT??? Our faker President actually lied to all of the citizens? How can that be? If truth be known OL Joe is the” BIG GUY” the head of the” BIDEN CLAN of GRIFTERS”. Joe has been in the political game for almost fifty years and LIES slide off of his FORKED tongue just like butter off a hot pancake.. Joe is taking us all down the Road to Hell with his grandiose ideas of wrecking our monetary system and taking us back to the JIMMY CARTER style of HYPERINFATION… Wouldn’t you all just love paying 17% to 18% interest on a mortgage? How about 42% to a credit card company? You all have seen how his first day he shut down the entire energy business of the USA and lots of folks lost their good Jobs and he even managed to P.O. Canada as they were affected. also. I am sure that after 4 years of Joe taking a wrecking ball to the economy of the USA you are for sure going to vote to keep him and his biting dog around another four years.

  2. The Socialist/Liberal/Demwit Party are counting on the uninformed not to know that The Democrat Part was the party of slavery, Jim Crow Laws, Segregation, the KKK, and numerous lynchings for Racial Purity! To accuse Republicans, the party that abolished slavery and suffered the loss of Abraham Lincoln with Jim Crow is just one of the biggest lies peddled by Jo (Groper) Biden and his minions!

  3. Hey Fact Checkers… send that information to the management of major league baseball! Apparently they are brain dead, can’t read and understand that the Georgia Voting Bill expands opportunities to vote and protects votes from being canceled out by illegal votes, or they have been drinking too much communist lemonade. Either way their devisive decisions will cause them to lose many fans!

    1. They and all other professional athletic leagues lost me, after they all followed attention-hungry Kaepernick and started taking to their knee to show their disrespect and disdain for our flag and the National Anthem! And then started changing their lifetime names to show how “woke” they are! No thanks — I’d rather watch Hallmark movies!!

  4. Biden is a consummate liar. His plagiarism runs rampant. He panders to whatever group he needs at the time. He takes credit for things that he didn’t do and he doesn’t take responsibility for his ignorant actions. Impeach him and do nothing Harris. The whole world is laughing at America and plotting our demise. Something needs to be done sooner rather than later!!

  5. Can this incoherant,incompetent,puppet,lying,slo,joe ever tell the truth, he is so used to lying, that I don’t think he knows what the truth ever is. His crime family is all the same.

    1. The vacuous demented Democrats avoid the truth at all cost, since it contrasts with their devious schemes to destroy our Constitution and take full control over the people!

    2. Well, once again, my original comment is “awaiting for approval!” 🙁 So let me try it another way that they just might find acceptable. The Democrats avoid the truth at all cost, since it interferes with their efforts to undermine our Constitution and gain control over us.

  6. MISTER Biden and the liberals know that the only way to gain the control, power, and wealth they so hunger for, is to lie and deceive! Satan has loosed his demons!!! 🙁

  7. Suffice it to say every word coming out of Biden’s mouth is a lie. Every word, every sentence is a lie! He just cannot help himself. To any Republican lawmaker: Do not bother to try to negotiate with these Democrats as they will use you and they will never deviate from their agenda, period!

  8. What?!! “…The Washington Post has “no clue” where Biden got the idea…?”!! It’s clear to most of us that a billionaire cabal now grips the nation. They work behind and are shielded by an army of marionettists who ply the strings of a marionette carefully chosen as our president. And he’s barely able to read his lines.

    Our mentally marginalized incompetent is the perfect choice because he’s vulnerable to the cabal. He can be prosecuted at any moment because he participated in the biggest crime in history, the 2020 U.S. election fraud. And his son Hunter is frosting on the prosecutorial cake.

    In case you may be wondering if the Delaware Dunce is really incompetent, simply watch his eyes. They never move lest he lose focus on what the cabal wrote for him. It’s distractingly creepy and a disaster every time he strays from the prepared script.


  10. Liars LIE and Biden is a liar! However, that is not what concerns me. What concerns me is the number of Americans who are not capable of determining when they are being lied to.

    I don’t know if they are stupid, or lazy, or so ingrained in their ideology that they block out rational thinking. Whatever it is it should concern everyone. This is exactly how communism takes over a country. It dumbs down the masses and then spews propaganda and before you know it, it has enough idiots to gain control. And yes, we are well on our way to that.

  11. Even if Biden had read the piece of legislation he most likely can not remember what it says accurately. My father had dementia and would read a newspaper and five minutes later would not be able to discuss what he had just been reading about. It is sad but Biden is not mentally fit to be President.

  12. When Biden stated “It’s Sick. It’s Sick”, was he communicating his own physical and mental condition in code?
    If yes, it may be the first time he failed to speak the untruth (lies).

  13. The morons that are protesting the bill have NOT read it, it actually increases voting rights and ability of the people to vote.

  14. Also to mlb I don’t buy any of your crap nor watch your games, to coke I now drink diet Pepsi, and to delta I now fly Chevrolet, or TTA. ( figure that out)

  15. HidenBiden is a habitual, pathological liar and a crook who enriched himself and his entire family by levering his political positions over many years of lukewarm achievement, warming his bench in Congress. Orange man GOOD!
