Georgia lawmaker wants state to copy Delaware's voting restrictions

Plan to be called President Joe Biden Jim Crow On Steroids Voter Act
By Bob Unruh
A Georgia state lawmaker plans to introduce the President Joe Biden Jim Crow On Steroids Voter Act to make his state's voting laws as restrictive as those in Delaware, Biden's home state.
In a Facebook post, state Rep. Wes Cantrell, who admits his move is a "stunt," said his legislation will have five key features:
"Yes this is a political stunt," he said.
But his goal is to point out the hypocrisy of critics of Georgia's election-integrity measures, who are ignoring more restrictive measures in other states.
"In recent days, President Biden called the new Georgia Election Integrity law un-American, sick, pernicious & Jim Crow on steroids," Cantrell said. "I look forward to all of my colleagues who voted against our Election Integrity law begging to co-sponsor this legislation with me."
He pointed out that Biden made false claims about provisions of Georgia's law, earning him four "Pinocchios" from the Washington Post's fact-checker. He falsely claimed, for example, that the Georgia law ended voting at 5 p.m. on Election Day "when people are just getting off work."
"And you didn’t just spread misinformation once. You did it again and again," Cantrell said, addressing Biden. "Delaware’s voting laws are draconian when compared to Georgia. Until you bring election reform to your home state of Delaware, it's probably best that you sit this one out. To use your favorite phrase, 'C'mon Man!'"
He also pointed out Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has been attacking Georgia.
"He invited the MLB to move the All Star Game to New York. Apparently, Senator Schumer doesn’t know the voting laws in his home state which are much more restrictive than Georgia's," Cantrell said.
PJMedia noted that according to the Honest Elections Project, voting laws in New York, where MLB is headquarted, are more restrictive than Georgia's laws.
Unlike New York, Georgia offers no-excuse absentee voting. And while Georgia offers 17 days of early voting, New York offers only days.
