Stop the disinformation – Monterey Herald, April 13, 2021
Disinformation is ubiquitous in today’s political circuses. One example is the maligning of Georgia’s S.B. 202 voter law to uphold voter integrity.
Although over 70 percent of voters support voter integrity via photo IDs, many political sycophants do not. Ironically, Delta Airlines, which criticized photo IDs, require such identification when passengers board their airplanes. Delta wants to know who is getting on their plane! The public should also know who is voting.
This is very different from the Jim Crow days when Democratic Party officials demanded that blacks pass various tests as a voter suppression tactic, tests not required of white voters.
As for the banning of drinking water, S.B. 202 states, “This Code section shall not be construed to prohibit a poll officer … from making available self-service water from an unattended receptacle to [a voter] waiting in line to vote.” What the law makes illegal is electioneering near voting stations. Like most states, Georgia made it illegal for political groups to hand out anything of value when waiting to vote.
President Biden should have known this. He earned four Washington Post Pinocchios for his false claims that voting hours would be shorter in Georgia. Such disinformation campaigns must end.
