Stacey Abrams got tongue-tied this week when she was asked to comment on historic voter turnout in Georgia despite claiming Republicans were “suppressing the vote” since her defeat in the last statewide election.
“The question about voter suppression and voter turnout… Is… We know… I’m sorry. You make mistakes even when you know what you’re talking about… It’s correlation without causation… We know that increased turnout has nothing to do with suppression,” claimed the Democrat.
The Washington Post admitted this week that early voting in Georgia is surging ahead of the 2022 midterms despite claiming the state’s new laws were “racist’ and equivalent to “voter suppression.”
“But after three weeks of early voting ahead of Tuesday’s primary, record-breaking turnout is undercutting predictions that the Georgia Election Integrity Act of 2021 would lead to a falloff in voting.By the end of Friday, the final day of early in-person voting, nearly 800,000 Georgians had cast ballots — more than three times the number in 2018, and higher even than in 2020, a presidential year,” admits the Washington Post.
