Brian Kemp even after the governor backed an overhaul of voting laws that responds to a number of the baseless conspiracy theories claiming widespread irregularities plagued last year’s presidential election. Trump attacked Kemp in a press release Tuesday for supporting legislation that the former president calls an improvement to Georgia’s voting rules but falls short after it stripped away some of the more restrictive proposed changes in earlier versions. Late last month, Republican state lawmakers pushed through the “Election Integrity Act” they claim will restore confidence in an election system Trump repeatedly said was rigged during his campaign and afterward. It is a sweeping change to Georgians’ ballot box access that Trump initially praised until changing his tone this week. “Too bad the desperately needed election reforms in Georgia didn’t go further, as their originally approved Bill did, but the Governor and Lt. Governor (Geoff Duncan) would not go for it,” Trump said in Monday’s statement emailed through his Save America PAC. “The watered-down version, that was just passed and signed by Gov. Kemp, while better than before, doesn’t have Signature Matching and many other safety measures, which were sadly left out. “This bill should have been passed before the 2020 Presidential Election, not after,” Trump said. Trump’s statement comes days after Kemp and fellow Republicans closed ranks against Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia to protest the voting changes. The league announced Tuesday Denver is the new site of the game. Meanwhile, Kemp continues to defend the new rules against Democrats, voting rights organizations and corporations like Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola for calling new voting rules an attempt to restrict access to the ballot box, especially for Black voters and other minorities… Kemp said that the new bill creates a more level playing field in elections.” https://georgiarecorder.com/brief/trump-rips-kemp-for-georgia-election-overhaul-that-didnt-go-further/ April 8, 2021 8:52 PM Log in to Reply xdog Battery companies settle, Georgia investment is secure, everybody wins, especially Biden and Kemp. https://www.ft.com/content/25379f57-8a45-4a58-9d55-685b6c4488f4 April 11, 2021 7:31 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
