Ambivalence: Sounds like congress really needs to hurry up with that voting rights act.


But it isn't a budget issue, so we need Republicans or Manchin and Sinema to nuke the filibuster. But once legislation is only subject to 50 votes, then it can be repealed just as easily as it passed. I don't have a solution, just naming problems.

saturn badger: Original: Original Tweet:

DianneG: Georgia's GOP-controlled House just passed #HB531 by a 97-72 vote. Among other voting restrictions, HB531 would limit location & hours of drop boxes, reduce early weekend voting, prohibits giving food/drink to voters waiting in line. Bill goes to State Senate now.

Someone needs to give out food and water and test this law. If said person has no political affiliation clothing on then there is a chance to have it tossed. Bonus is have a few go to the opposing predominant precincts and see who takes them up on the offer. I bet everyone would.


Problem, in the Republican dominated district there won't be a line because they have a surplus of voting machines. The lines are in Democratic leaning districts.

phoenix352: Not that they have tried to come up with one, but how the hell are they trying to justify the prohibition of giving food and drinks to those in lines?

JFC these people are a holes


Simple enough. Those people waiting in line to vote are only there for the pizza. It's bribery, and it must not stand.
Transparently ridiculous, but who cares? Reasons.

Useless subhuman farks. Every single last one of them. I actively wish death upon anyone who identifies as a Republican. No I am not joking.

The Democrats only won Georgia last time because they literally said "Vote for us and we will give you $2000".  If they break this promise, which is looking increasingly likely, the Republicans won't even need this legislation to take Georgia back.

HarveyBrooks: Ambivalence: It's never a good sign when the laboratories of democracy start experimenting with fascism. GA isn't the only state, either. This shiat needs to be shut down fast.

How?
