President Joe Biden’s attacks on Georgia’s election integrity law, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into law last week, are “not supported by facts,” Heritage Action executive director Jessica Anderson told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement.
Gov. Kemp’s decision to sign Georgia’s election integrity bill into law sparked mass outrage from leftists, many of whom claimed GOP lawmakers were ushering Georgia back into an era of Jim Crow.
“Some of these voter suppression laws in Georgia and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its ugly head once again. It is 160 years since the 13, 14, and 15th amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow stills seems to be with us,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said during Wednesday’s Senate Rules and Administration Committee hearing on S. 1, or the “For the People Act.”
Both Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and the president later echoed his sentiments. During the first press conference of his presidency on Thursday, Biden described state election integrity efforts as “un-American” and “sick” and concluded they make “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle” He later targeted Georgia’s election integrity efforts specifically, describing them as “un-American” and proclaiming that the law aims to “deny people the right to vote.”
