Sen. Raphael Warnock conceded that an advocacy email he signed contained false information about Georgia's voting law.

The email, which was sent out by the advocacy group 3.14 Action after the bill was signed, claimed the new law ended no-excuse mail voting and restricted early voting on the weekends, both provisions that were debated but not included in the final proposal.

A Warnock campaign spokesman told the Washington Post the Democratic senator signed off on his statement prior to the legislation's passage, when those measures were still being debated.

President Joe Biden has also been accused of spreading misinformation about the law, earning "Four Pinocchios" from the Washington Post for his claims that the measure slashed voting hours and early voting.
