Justice Department files lawsuit against Georgia over new election integrity law

The Biden administration is taking its next step against a voter integrity law recently enacted in Georgia.

According to reports, the Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against SB 202, which has drawn significant criticism from the left regarding allegations that it seeks to disenfranchise voters.

“Cause for celebration”

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the court action on Friday, going on to elaborate on the administration’s position.

“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 in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act,” he said in a press conference.

Garland also claimed that “studies show” there was “record voting turnout and participation rates” in the state during the recent election cycle, calling the news “cause for celebration.”

Nevertheless, he said the recent law’s “provisions make it harder for people to vote” in future elections.

As a result, the attorney general pointed to the Justice Department lawsuit as an effort to address “those restrictions with the purpose of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race or color.”

“They may ultimately regret this move”

Biden himself was one of the first prominent Democrats to speak out against the Georgia bill, likening it to racist laws passed previously in the nation’s history. As recently as earlier this week, he said laws like the one passed in that state were akin to “Jim Crow in the 21st century.”

Of course, critics point out that he has been short on specifics in making his comparison. Instead, he has made a number of misleading statements about what the Georgia law does and does not permit.

Considering the new lawsuit, it seems likely that the Justice Department will target similar measures that have been passed or are under consideration in other states.

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley, however, pointed out that the tactic could backfire on the Biden administration.

“I’m highly skeptical and I think they may ultimately regret this move,” he said. “It could indeed clarify this issue in a way the Biden administration does not want.”
