Georgia Authorities Under Fire After Arresting Democratic Lawmaker Objecting To Voting Law


  1. Why are the Democrats not enforcing the Constitution Amendment 14 Section 2 that penalizes states that infringe on voters rights by removing their seats in the House of Representatives. Enforcement of the Amendment will effectively put an end to the Republicans attack on our voters rights.

    1. @ORANGE GENERAL yea and your trump is a orang man ait not an orange general an orange liar and i hope texas abbot loses the next election and hope mathew mcconaughey wins the texas election good luck scared republicans

    2. @Privacy Setting
      Isn’t odd how there’s never any replies when we ask Trumpublicans which news outlet/s they watch or which news outlet/s they suggest we watch for the “so called truth”!?!

    1. @Pinnacle of Faith Church of God in Christ.
      Much better than Kirov and Volgograd
      Little princess pederast Pushkin

    2. Not feasible. There are other states that GOP are working to pass bill suppression votes as well. The solution is to fight it in court and challenge it at the SC and support the voting rights that Biden administration is pushing.

  2. So, lets take a very sketchy situation and just throw gasoline on the fire. I do hope they challenge that law immediately. This is B.S. of the highest order. IMO – Who ever state puts up roadblocks like voter registration, it should fall upon the state to ensure that each and every citizen has a state authorized ID card and any other documentation required. they (State Officials) shall face fines and possible jail time if the citizens do not have the proper documentation when it comes to vote. That is a clear and defined interference in their rights as citizens.

    1. That makes so much sense. No one is against actually being whom you say you are when you vote: it’s the racist and arbitrary requirement of obstacle riddenly attained id that’s problematic. Excellent point.

  3. Knocking on a door of a governor signing public bills in private? Arrested. Breaking into the capitol, assaulting police, and obstructing congress? Go home and maybe we will catch you later.

    1. Repubs don’t even need to try hiding their corruption anymore because other like politicians do nothing to hold them accountable. It’s B.S.!!!

    2. @Beenthere Donethat What percentage of the people in that mob do you think will face charges in the end? Do you think they would have let BLM go home and hope that there was video of the perpetrators later or do you think as many as humanly possible would have been arrested? I know people are being caught, I don’t think if BLM had taken over the capitol many would have been sent home to be identified by facebook videos later.

  4. These troopers didn’t even read her her right tat suppose to be the law of our country u arrest someone u should read them their right

  5. The GOP in this state doesn’t care anymore about hiding it corruption. Those politicians should be removed from office.
    Straight up bullsh!t

  6. Hey NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, WNBA, Corporate America, where do you stand? This is an attack on the right to vote! Democracy Now!

    1. We are…..everything in moderation. Even though Rome wasn’t built in one day, it sure as heck burned in one night.

  7. This is why real Americans spell Republikkklans this way and they now consider the Republikkklan party to be the Russian government.

    1. Because the Supreme Court is full of corrupt conservatives who will follow what the Retrumplican party and all the corporations that fund them want. They won’t up hold the law or strike down undemocratic laws

    2. @Nathan Carabajal nah, the Supreme Court threw all Trump’s lawsuits so they can’t be what you described

  8. In this year of 2021… I can’t believe we are still fighting for Democracy and Freedom in this Nation of ours. Keeping people from Voting and making it very difficult is UNFORGIVABLE!

    1. We have come together, reason why the state is now blue. This is just apart of the battle, but please believe, this will not end with a deaf tone.

  9. Georgia authorities need to face consequences for what they did that was ridiculous, shameful and should have never happened.
