Biden Spars w/ Kemp, Calls Ga. Election Integrity Bill an ‘Atrocity’

'It is obvious that neither President Biden nor his handlers have actually read SB 202...'

(Headline USA) Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp pushed back forcefully after President Joe Biden injected himself into the state’s political debate over how to ensure the integrity of its elections.

Biden on Friday called the state’s recently passed SB 202 law “outrageous” and urged Congress to move quickly on its own sweeping election overhaul, which seeks to codify many of the illegal “emergency” practices implemented last year, promote vote fraud and ensure permanent Democrat majorities.

It was the latest lurch to the extreme fringes from an increasingly unhinged and dementia-afflicted president, who is believed to be at the mercy of radical leftists within his own administration.

“It’s an atrocity,” Biden lashed out while speaking with reporters. “They passed a law saying you can’t provide water for people standing in line while they’re waiting to vote. You don’t need anything else to know this is nothing but punitive, designed to keep people from voting.”

Specifically, the Georgia measure Biden was referencing aims to prevent partisan groups from supplying free food or drink within the boundaries of a polling station so as not to unduly influence voters.

It was one of many exaggerations that Biden has made since taking office, while relying on the complicit mainstream media to lay cover and refuse to challenge him on such statements.

Kemp pushed back, accusing Biden of attempting to “destroy the sanctity and security of the ballot box.”

“It is obvious that neither President Biden nor his handlers have actually read SB 202, which I signed into law yesterday,” he said. “This bill expands voting access, streamlines vote-counting procedures, and ensures election integrity.”

Democrats from Biden on down have continuously echoed talking points baselessly claiming that GOP legislative efforts to reassert control of their election laws were tantamount to racism.

“This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” Biden bizarrely claimed at a press conference on Thursday.

But Kemp rebuffed those charges as well.

“There is nothing ‘Jim Crow’ about requiring a photo or state-issued ID to vote by absentee ballot – every Georgia voter must already do so when voting in-person,” he said.

As Secretary of State, I consistently led the fight to protect Georgia elections against power-hungry, partisan activists,” he continued. “As Governor, I won’t back down from keeping Georgia elections secure, accessible, and fair.”
