Why is Georgia GOP so determined to target certain voters and suppress their voting rights?

Update:

https://politics.myajc.com/news/state--regional-go...

Government officials in an east Georgia county told about 40 African-American senior citizens to get off a bus taking them to vote Monday, leading to complaints of voter suppression. The bus was preparing to depart from a senior center operated by Jefferson County when the center’s director said they needed to disembark.

Update 2:

Dixie. Why deflect vs. answer the question. BTW - see Trump rallies and angry white folk in attendance.

Trump promotes violence / bashes women / makes fun of mentally challenged people / promotes body slamming reporters in Montana / many others...

    The nearly 53,000 people in Georgia whose voter registrations have been frozen, or are “pending,” under a controversial new election administration scheme mostly live in the urban parts of the state. About 98 percent of the names on that list hail from just ten counties, all of them connected to Georgia’s most urban areas:

    Bibb County, where the city of Macon is. (933)

    Dougherty County, where the city of Albany is. (1,287)

    Richmond County, where the city of Augusta is. (1,557)

    Chatham County, where the city of Savannah is. (2,827)

    Muscogee County, where the city of Columbus is. (3,076)

    The other five counties where the bulk of the voter registrations are frozen, are in Atlanta’s metro suburbs, and four of those have the highest total number of pending voter registrations in the state. In all but two of the ten counties, the percentage of pending voter registrations that belong to African Americans is larger than the black share of the population in those counties.

    LOUISVILLE, Ga. — A group that encourages African-Americans to vote says about 40 black residents of a senior living center in Georgia were told to get off a bus taking them to vote.

    The senior center director asked the senior residents to get off the bus, said LaTosha Brown, a co-founder of Black Voters Matter.

    “We knew it was an intimidation tactic,” Brown told the Atlanta newspaper. “It was really unnecessary. These are grown people.”

    Officials felt uncomfortable allowing senior center patrons to leave in a bus with “an unknown third party,” County Administrator Adam Brett said.

    “No seniors at the Jefferson County senior center were denied their right to vote,” Brett said.

    The seniors planned to cast their ballots later, the newspaper reported.

    They know they've lost already unless they can stop blacks and Latinos or any Democrat from voting.

    Why does Georgia politician Stacey Abrams openly say that undocumented people will be part of blue wave ?

    They are openly admitting that illegals will be voting.

    Why does Texas Democratic Party send out voter farms with citizenship column pre-checked to illegals in Texas ?

    Is this how democrats roll and win by cheating ?

    Because we know you leftists will do everything you can to steal votes by voting dead people and illegal immigrants.

    You Democrats set this up to make an issue, you have been using this tactic for years now.

    Those "Georgians" are you left wingers. You just made it obvious.

    Look how your sheep believe this bullshit, pathetic people, but that is who you have become.

    Leading the sheep to slaughter.

    Why are Democrats calling for violence against Republicans

  • 3 years ago

    They don't have the Electoral College to hand them what they want and need to suppress the will of the people. The only way they can win is to cheat.
