The state of Georgia is trying to protect the integrity of its elections with a new law.
Naturally, the Democrats are against this, and they’re trying to claim that it’s a form of voter suppression.
Joe Biden, who doesn’t even seem to know where he is most of the time, has spoken out against the law, but he got it completely wrong.
Even the liberal Washington Post is saying Biden lied about it.

Washington Post Gives Biden Four Pinocchios for False GA Voting Law Narrative: ‘Election Day Hours Were Not Changed’
President Joe Biden advanced a false narrative about Georgia’s new election integrity law, claiming that it reduces voting hours, thereby compromising the ability of working-class Americans to go out and vote.
This is a clear falsehood, as the law does not change Election Day hours and actually expands access for early voting, as the establishment media outlet, the Washington Post, pointed out in a fact-check, giving the commander-in-chief Four Pinocchios.
Biden has spoken sharply against Georgia’s election law, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed last week, repeating many of the talking points touted by far-left members of Congress, even referring to state election integrity efforts as “un-American” and “sick,” making “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.”
“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” he said during last week’s news conference. The following day, Biden claimed the law ended voting hours early “so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”
However, Biden’s assertions are not accurate. Election Day hours in Georgia, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., have not changed. Those in line by 7 p.m. are permitted to cast their vote.
“Nothing in the new law changes those rules,” the Washington Post reported.
