DOJ sues GA over voter ID laws


Just The NewsThe Justice Department announced Friday is it has filed a lawsuit against Georgia over the state's new voting law, arguing it violates the federal Voting Rights Act.

"Our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia’s election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color" Attorney General Merrick Garland said.

There is nothing racial in the bill, but everyone involved knows that already. This is, purely, a power play: can DOJ block states from requiring honest elections?
