Abrams: GOP Voter Integrity Laws Are Like Jan 6 ‘Assault’ Happening ‘Again and Again’

October 7, 2021

Wednesday on CNN’s OutFront, voter fraud enthusiast and failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams claimed falsely that Republican state lawmakers putting forth election integrity legislation is a continuation of the January 6 Capitol Hill chaos she calls an “assault on our democracy.”

“My responsibility is to do what I can to ensure that no matter who you are, and no matter who you choose, that you have the freedom to vote in the United States,” Abrams said. We all know this is a lie. Abrams considers her responsibility to be ensuring that Democrats are free to commit widespread voter fraud so that Republicans never win another election.

“And that is why we have to keep laser-focused on the assault on our democracy,” she continued to blather. “An assault that not only happened on January 6 but has happened again and again since that time in statehouses that have restricted access to the right to vote and constricted not only that but the ability of election workers to do their jobs.”

For the millionth time: voter integrity laws actually expand access to the right to vote. Republicans simply want the process to be fair, open and aboveboard. Abrams knows her Party can’t win that way, so she propagandizes for the narrative that GOP attempts to reduce voter fraud are — what else? — racist.
