ATLANTA — Today, Fair Fight Action continued its multimillion dollar ad campaign with a new digital ad focused on Georgia Republican leaders siding with the January 6th insurrectionists through their introduction of dozens upon dozens of anti-democratic bills in the state legislature.
Republican House leadership has already admitted that these bills are intended to “deal with perception [of folks] who were just given wrong information” — in other words, to make the conspiracy theorists happy. Now, their unconstitutional legislative efforts are going to lead to longer lines, more restrictions for absentee ballots, and potentially higher taxes for counties dealing with costs from this reckless legislation as they stand with insurrectionists over Georgia voters.
“After spending months sowing doubt about our democratic institutions in the last election, Georgia Republicans are doubling-down on their efforts to promote conspiracy theories and appease insurrectionists rather than protect Georgians’ right to vote,” said Fair Fight Action CEO Lauren Groh-Wargo. “These kinds of dangerous legislative efforts do nothing to protect the security of the ballot box, but do threaten the voting rights of millions of Georgians while breeding even more cynicism in our electoral system at a time when we need greater confidence.”
“They tried to overturn an election.”
Donald Trump: “We’re going to fight like hell.”
“Attacked our democracy. Pushing false conspiracies.”
“And now, these Georgia Republicans want to make them happy. Making it harder for Georgians to vote.”
Speaker David Ralston: “Vote by mail, in my view, is not acceptable.”
“They must be stopped. Tell your lawmaker to protect our right to vote.”
