As Twitchy reported, not even voting rights crusader Stacey Abrams was going to attend President Joe Biden’s speech in Georgia pushing for “voting rights” legislation that would federalize elections. Politico notes that Biden’s speech comes just days after he blasted Donald Trump in his January 6 anniversary speech and that all of these states’ new voting laws are “based on the former president’s lies of election fraud.”
That’s pretty rich. Democrats say voter fraud is a problem that doesn’t exist; however, as Abrams demonstrated, they’re certain that voter suppression is real and is keeping minorities and the poor from being able to vote — even though the gubernatorial race Abrams lost had record voter turnout in Georgia.
Days after going after Donald Trump for threatening America’s democracy, President Joe Biden will turn his sights on Republicans for pushing laws based on the former president’s lies of election fraudhttps://t.co/SmjSXMyQYB

The changes were made due to Covid emergencies. They changed them back. We already have laws to protect voting. He wants to federalize 1/ Ballot harvesting. 2/ Late arriving ballots. 3/ NO voter IDs, to allow illegals to vote, as in NY. 81% of Americans want voter ID.

Sounds like his promise to pursue unity was a puff of smoke.

So much unity. https://t.co/41YT7a30Uw

This has so much Obama tone, it’s obvious what’s going on. Biden is no more unifying that his former boss, who was one of the most divisive presidents in recent history. https://t.co/AjdcomaRzv

I guess Politico is for writers who just don't quite make it past the DNC hiring process? https://t.co/DU5MX1cIvU

“News source” @politico spreads un-substantiated leftist propaganda. You’re a joke.

“Pushing laws” asking for ID?

One legal verified vote per legal verified citizen will stop all this BS. Ballot harvesting and mail in voting is rife with irregularity and potential fraud. One fraudulent vote eradicates one legal vote. If you cared you’d push for more verification not less. In person vote

I wonder why Stacey Abrams suddenly had a scheduling conflict and is not able to stand next to him as he delivers an address about Republicans (Trump supporters) not accepting election results being the biggest threat to our democracy. So strange.

I still don’t understand who can’t vote.

Every legal voter can vote

Who can’t vote? This is such an odd fight to me considering how many more important things are happening in the world right now.

Who doesn't have voting rights?

So will Biden scream about Jim Crow 2.0 again?

The people democratically elected are making laws?
Yes, good job, that's how it works.

Again, if Biden’s doing anything, he’s setting his sights on “voter suppression,” which can be anything from requiring a photo ID to having to stand in line for an hour. He’s pushing for laws based on Abrams’ lies of voter suppression.
‘A very notable absence’: ‘A conflict’ will keep Stacey Abrams from attending President Biden’s voting rights speech in Georgia https://t.co/I3gCWHF0K7
