Day 66

1/ Georgia’s governor signed new voting restrictions into law. The overhaul of the state’s election laws would impose rigid absentee voter identification requirements, limit drop boxes, shortens state runoffs, and expand the Legislature’s power over elections. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the measure into law just over an hour after the bill passed both chambers of the legislature, calling it “common sense” legislation that ensure Georgia’s elections “are secure, accessible and fair.” Dozens of state legislatures are considering similar restrictions on voting following the 2020 presidential election.

The gaslighting continues as Trump has just falsely claimed that the Jan. 6 rioters were ‘hugging and kissing’ police. Even former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has called Trump’s claim “manifestly false.”
