Joe Biden Plans to Attack Voting Integrity Laws in Angry New Speech
President is expected to call for reform of the Senate filibuster rules
Democrat Joe Biden is planning to give a dramatic speech on voting rights in Georgia, according to reports.
He will focus on the state's newly passed election integrity laws.
Biden is expected to call for reform of the Senate filibuster rules by using the issue of voting rights, Politico reports.
White House director of the Office of Public Engagement Cedric Richmond told Politico:
“We are doubling down, kicking it into another gear, we are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression, voter subversion, and obstruction."
Biden's speech will be similar to the one where he condemned the January 6 protests and indirectly blamed President Donald Trump.
“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election, he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol,” Biden said.
Biden is set to condemn the election law reforms passed by Republicans in Georgia, and signed by Gov. Brian Kemp in March.
Biden will brand the law as "racist" and highlight the "danger" President Trump has on democracy.
The new reforms include voter ID requirements, restricting the dropbox numbers while blocking officials from sending absentee ballot applications to all voters.
Biden claimed in April that Georgia's law blocked people from providing voters with food and water while they stood in line.
He also accused the state of ending voting at 5 pm "when people are just getting off work."
The claims were later debunked by a left-wing "fact-checker."
As Neon Nettle reported last year:
The bill strengthens voting rules in the Peach State by establishing photo ID requirements for absentee voters and limiting the number of ballot drop boxes.
The bill gives the Georgia State Elections Board the ability to take over county election boards in areas that may require oversight.
