Anyone who didn’t think that the Biden White House wouldn’t resume Obama’s war on election reform laws by abusing the DOJ was not paying attention.
The partisan security hole in civil rights legislation is that it protects Democrat voters through disparate impact, but not Republican voters, or at least no state has seriously tried to defend the disenfranchisement of white voters, which is a very real thing, by using disparate impact.
Since Democrats cheat and since Democrat voters are more often minorities, any election security or reform system will invariably impact Democrat voters enabling Democrats in the DOJ to launch baseless and illegal lawsuits to interfere with state election laws.
And so we’ve got AG Merrick Garland doing the usual routine.
“Our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia’s election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of Black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color, in violation of Section Two of the Voting Rights Act,” Attorney General Merrick Garland falsely claimed.
The push is being advanced by Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke, a militant racist with a history of antisemitic and racist advocacy.
This is just the opening round. Garland’s campaign to help Democrats win Georgia is operating in tandem with grandiose moves to federalize elections like H.R.1.
And this is what happens when the federal government has the power to interfere in local elections and election laws.
