Atlanta, GA – A Georgia lawmaker who was arrested after she tried to interrupt GOP Governor Brian Kemp’s signing of controversial a new voting law could be facing eight years in prison.
Kemp signed Georgia Senate Bill 202 into law on March 25 in a ceremony with press and supporters in attendance, WXIA reported.
Opponents of the legislation have complained that it is an attempt to suppress minority votes.
SB 202 requires an ID number, such as a driver’s license, to apply for an absentee ballot, WXIA reported.
The legislation also so cuts off absentee ballot applications 11 days prior to the election, limits the number of absentee ballot drop boxes, and allows the state to take control of what it calls “underperforming” local election systems.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
