Georgia voter suppression

“Republicans passed and signed the 98-page voting law last week following the first Democratic victories in presidential and Senate elections in Georgia in a generation. President Biden won the state by just 11,779 votes out of nearly five million cast. The new law will, in particular, curtail ballot access for voters in booming urban and suburban counties, home to many Democrats. Another provision makes it a crime to offer water to voters waiting in lines, which tend to be longer in densely populated communities.” – NY Times

Gaetz

“Rep. Matt Gaetz’s communication director resigned abruptly Friday amid a storm of controversies that have hit the Florida Republican, including news of a federal investigation into an alleged sexual relationship with a teenage girl and potential violations of sex trafficking laws.” – AZ Central

“Part of the investigation is examining whether Gaetz, 38, had sex with a 17-year-old and other underage girls and violated federal sex trafficking laws, sources told the AP, adding that federal agents suspect Greenberg may have enticed the girls and introduced some to Gaetz. Investigators are reported to be examining whether the two men had sex with the same girls. Among rare lawmakers to express support for Gaetz is the freshman Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, another rising figure propelled by media appearances and baseless conspiracy theories.” – The Guardian

Fox

Fox host Laura Ingraham quote-tweeted an anti-vaccine activist to spread the conspiracy theory that Gates is helping fund vaccine research to enable “digitally tracking Americans’ every move.” On April 24, she pushed the same conspiracy theory on her show, saying Gates wants “a pretty vast mass surveillance system to be put in place” to fight the coronavirus.

Carlson said Democrats want a COVID-19 vaccine to be mandatory: “Their message is clear and has been from day one: ‘COVID-19 is an imminent mortal threat to everyone in America, young and old, healthy and sick. A mandatory vaccine is our only hope. Until that arrives, you must do exactly what we say.’ That’s their position — it’s not science, it is propaganda.” – Media Matters
