    CNN anchor Jake Tapper pointed out Tuesday on his show “The Lead” that Democrats were only complaining about voting restrictions in red states, while blue states like New Jersey and Delaware did not allow ballot harvesting. After both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris gave speeches on the Democrats voting legislation in Georgia today, Tapper said, “Look, I genuinely as an American feel that in addition to guarding against fraud, which is very little of in the United States, it should be as easy as possible for Americans to vote.”

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday claimed President Biden was not comparing opponents of Democrats’ voting bill to racists and segregationists as “humans,” explaining that he was just comparing their “choice” to oppose the legislation during his speech in Atlanta earlier this week. “So I ask every elected official in America, how do you want to be remembered?” Biden said during his speech advocating a suspension of filibuster rules to pass voting legislation. “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis...

    Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, believes his party is at a crossroads as the 2022 midterm elections approach. And he says Republican voters need to choose between believing in disproven election fraud conspiracy theories and forging ahead with new leadership that will push the party toward a better place. “We're either gonna placate and play populism one on one and try to live 10 seconds at a time, or we're gonna put genuine leadership on display,” Duncan, who describes himself as a lifelong conservative, told Yahoo News, scoffing at the notion that the loudest GOP voices are its...

Fast-forward to Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022. President Biden and Vice President Harris visited Abrams's home turf of Georgia to push their "voting rights" legislation, which is already on life support.

Marc Elias not only called ballot harvesting one of the "four pillars" of a successful election but also, along with other Democrats, sued to overturn harvesting bans in two states....

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Sunday rebuked Rep. Jody Hice (Ga.), his challenger in the upcoming GOP primary, as being "double-minded" when it comes to the most recent national elections. "The person I'm running against, Congressman Hice, he's been in Congress for several years. He's never done a single piece of election reform legislation. Then he certified his own race with those same machines, the same ballots, and yet for President Trump, he said you couldn't trust that," Raffensperger said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "That's a double-minded person, and as a pastor, he should know better. So...

    Former Sen. David Perdue of Georgia, who's primary challenging Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in this year's election, is taking aim at a state law that allows the incumbent governor to raise unlimited campaign contributions.

Word of Perdue's filing was shared first nationally with Fox News. The bill was approved during Georgia’s 2020 legislative session...

    Security footage of Georgia poll workers lugging boxes of ballots out from under a table and scanning them after political party poll watchers had gone home for the night sparked controversy last week when the Trump campaign cited it as evidence of voter fraud, but upon further review the ballots appear to have remained in the proper chain of custody over the course of Election Day.
