GA SecState tries to blame-shift


NewsmaxGeorgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday called for an end to “no-excuse” absentee voting in the state, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"The no-excuse system voted into law in 2005 -- long before most of you, if not all of you, long before I was in the General Assembly -- it makes no sense when we have three weeks of in-person early voting available," Raffensberger told the House Governmental Affairs Committee. "It opens the door to potential illegal voting, especially in light of the federal rules that deny us the ability to keep voter lists, registration files, clean."

This is simply Raffensberger trying to shift blame for the 2020 fraud to others. The law should be changed to block absentee voting entirely, absent reasonable excuse such as travel or illness. But advocating for it now is just a way to try to burnish his image and make up for his capitulation on other issues when they actually mattered -- 2020.
