Before we talk about “rollbacks,” let’s talk about walk backs, like the time USA Today let Stacey Abrams go back and stealth-edit her op-ed on Georgia’s voting law after backlash against Major League Baseball moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta — and taking some several million dollars with it. Now she (and Sen. Raphael Warnock) are saying they never have, and don’t know anybody who has, objected to “having to prove who you are to vote.”
But the media narrative is out there; just look how CNN decided to cherry-pick Georgia for its piece on the state purging 100,000 from its voter rolls — something every state does. People move, people die … so they remove them from the voter roles. But CNN chose to single out Georgia, again as part of the narrative that Republicans are rolling back voter rights. Reuters is right on board:
Democrats in the Senate this week will try to advance legislation setting new national election standards, seeking to counter voting-rights rollbacks that Republican legislatures are pursuing across the country https://t.co/RDzcP41S7Z

What “voting rights” have been rolled back, exactly?

If you have a State ID/Drivers license, what's the issue, register to vote then go to the polling station in your area and vote

There’s no voting rights rollbacks, it’s restoring election integrity that has been destroyed – their goal to deliver one party totalitarian rule. Americans aren’t stupid, they see the tactic.
VoterID, forensic audits, election integrity vital to our Republic.

Because the federal government handles everything so well so why not give them more power over the election. pic.twitter.com/WhnJaCKRdY

What a bullshit headline. The bill allows for politicians to fund their campaigns with tax payer dollars and federalizes elections. Next step would be issuing ballots already registered with votes.

Are you an arm of the DNC because you sure sound like it

democrats need to unreasonably expand voting to make it impossible to manage thereby making it is easier to cheat. Nothing in the republican bill is restrictive, except that it restricts opportunities to cheat. Why would democrats oppose that?

Interesting spin, @Reuters

What are those voting rights rollbacks? How are these laws supressing ANYONES right to vote?
— TheRealPeach (@TheRealPeach85) June 21, 2021
There’s no “voting-rights rollback,” voter identification is not voter suppression, these are just plain lies by our leftist lying media.

Rollback? Not one single new bill in any state rolls back any voting rights. Quit following orders from the socialist democrat party.

So just another Democrat press release supporting federal election takeover.

It’s called reinstating election integrity. Of course you oppose election integrity because Democrats love election fraud!

"seeking to counter-voting rights rollbacks" seems to be the Democrats' euphemism for "subverting election integrity nation-wide"

Try to make state audits illegal so they can cheat EVERY election after the stolen 2020 election.

It’s a lot easier to reprint DNC press releases than it is to report.
Now Stacey Abrams tells CNN that nobody ever opposed ‘having to prove who you are to vote’ https://t.co/4EsAZ5HCkb
