A Georgia state Democrat accidentally let it slip that the state’s new voting bill actually addresses common sense concerns over voting before remembering she had to stick to claims it’s”Jim Crow 2.0.” State Sen. Sally Harrell admitted that the law actually addresses the issue of long lines during elections which can lead to fewer minorities being able to cast their ballots.

Fox News reports:

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., who claimed that the rules were a new form of Jim Crow restrictions, noted how long the bill is – 80 pages – and asked Democratic State Sen. Sally Harrell if any part of it addressed having “a fair number of precincts” and a solution to the problem of long lines, which have kept minorities from voting in the past. As it turns out, she said, it does.

“There actually is a piece of a – a section in the bill that says that if it’s documented that people have to wait for a certain amount of time, that during the next election that precinct would be split,” Harrell acknowledged.

While Harrell admitted that the problem of long lines and number of precincts is addressed by the bill, she then claimed that this was really a “smoking gun” for why the bill is actually detrimental to people’s ability to vote.

“Another tactic that’s been used in the past for voter suppression is the changing of precinct locations,” Harrell explained. “People are creatures of habit. They tend to, if they did something one way once they think that that’s supposed to happen the same way the next time. That’s logical. So the voting location changes … the precinct gets split, they go to where they used to vote, and wait in line, and their name’s not on the roll, so then they have to go someplace else. Or they go someplace and it’s closed, and they don’t know where to go.”

Harrell made the admission to Sen. Merkley while the Senate Rules Committee traveled to the Peach State to hold field hearing over the voting law.

Still not buying this BS! EVERY single person on this earth CAN vote if they are legal residents of this Country and legal residents of the state in which they are voting. Voting lines as far as I know have NEVER been an issue so why should it become one now? NO Democrats you are NOT going to change it all! You will NOT get by with this shit! NO MORE!

notification of any changes to a Voters location are sent to the ‘Voters ADDRESS’ listed on the ‘Voter rolls.” guess who’s responsibility it is too keep the ‘Voter Rolls’ accurate and updated??? you are right. its the ‘VOTERS’ responsibility.

these libs fail miserably by continuing their ‘poor attempt” to defend their position (or lie) of voter suppression. accusations of Jim Crow.

the American people are tired of the same old same old. they are finally standing up to the libs and their radical ideology.
