"Any corporation telling you that Voter ID laws are racist is run by white supremacists.

Black people know how to get ID. Pretending we are too stupid to figure out how to get to the DMV is an insult and speaks volumes about what Democrats truly think about us."

Black voters are less likely to have the identification now required. That is a fact that has been pointed out. As far as I can see the only ones talking about people being to stupid to get to the DMV are Republicans. It's just another obstacle placed in their path by Republicans. Remember this is all on the back of a string f lies about the election being stolen.

Surely you don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that a state electoral organisation that happily allows voters to line up for 8-10 hours to vote might not have the best interests of democracy at heart?

Has fatcat always been a right wing lunatic, or is he simply trying to fill the void left by posters like Seneca?

So why have they put measures in place to reduce the time it takes to vote?

If they have done that, and voting times are reduced significantly, then I will apologise whole-heartedly to both you and the Georgia electoral office. But I am currently very suspicions given the 8-10 hour waiting times experienced by voters in Fulton County at the last Federal election. Here in Australia I'm unlucky to wait a couple of minutes.

Seems strange that you would say 'if they have done that' then. It's a key part of the new legislation.

They haven't done anything. They mention about a range of things, including forcibly taking control of county vote counting operations whenever it suits them, but they haven't actually done anything yet. Are you always this stupid?

The reality is the political survival of the GOP depends on limiting and restricting voting. Donald Trump said this himself when he attacked mail voting. So you'll need to excuse my cynicism about these new voting laws until I see their impact on voter waiting times in the poorest areas of Atlanta.

Well they haven't done anything apart from make these measures part of voting law. I guess they can change their minds and make them not part of voting law.

What measure have they taken to reduce waiting times and how will they ensure that waiting times are reduced across the board including in those areas where people are less likely to vote republican.

Yes, because there were quite detailed posts explaining the likely negative impacts of these changes, and which communities were likely to be most affected. Which you ignored.

What have you provided to back up your claims that they are reducing waiting times?

Fatty already mentioned the provision in the law that says if precincts had waiting time of more than an hour in the previous general election, or had to remain open an hour after the official closing time in order to get all the voting done, then county officials have to reduce the size of the precinct or get more workers and/or equipment in time for the next election.

Employ more people to shorten the queue which you have deliberately made longer or decrease the size of the precinct and force people to to vote somewhere else (probably further from where they live) or not vote at all. Thanks for the choice.

Gaetz apparently wasn't just mentioned on Fox New lots in the last few years he was averaging an appearance more than once a week for the last 4-5 years. Since the story has broken he's barely been mentioned once, Hannity who campaigned for Gaetz has mentioned the controversy period.

The GOP and its donors still struggling to live in the Trump's shadow.

And the man himself repeating the election steal lies, thus blatantly confirming that he is either a liar or an idiot as his lawyer, Powell, put it.

John "the original orangeman" Boehner absolutely skewers the GOP, Ted Cruz in particular and Trump in his just released book.

Referring to Ted Cruz "...nobody likes an asshole who thinks he is smarter than everyone else". Ain't that the truth John.

On the GOP..."Ronald Reagan would be on the left fringe of the GOP and would likely not even win a primary".

Boehner certainly felt the heat from the "crazies" in his party whilst he was speaker. Stepping down saying..."fück this for a game of soldiers"

Mueller vindicated.

Barr found to be a big fat duplicitous liar. :shock:

A few titbits:

Judge blasts William Barr, Justice Department for 'disingenuous' handling of secret Donald Trump obstruction memo

A US federal judge has accused the Justice Department and then-attorney general William P Barr of misleading the court and public to hide how he decided that former president Donald Trump should not be charged for obstructing special counsel Robert S Mueller III's Russia investigation.

...

Jackson called suspicions well-founded that Barr and department lawyers had been “disingenuous” in withholding the document, saying the department had sought to “obfuscate” its true purpose of justifying a decision that had already been made.

...

Both judges blasted Barr's four-page letter to Congress in March 2019 that said the special counsel did not draw a conclusion as to whether Trump obstructed the investigation, and Barr's own opinion was the evidence was insufficient to bring such a charge.

In reality, Mueller's report laid out evidence of obstruction, but said the special counsel could not fairly make a charging decision given department policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted.

...

Barr's public statements “misleading”, and wrote that he had “grave concerns about the objectivity of the process” that led up to the public release of the Mueller report.

The court cannot reconcile certain public representations made by Attorney General Barr with the findings in the Mueller Report,” he wrote. “These circumstances generally, and Attorney General Barr's lack of candour specifically, call into question Attorney General Barr's credibility.
