Barack Obama is still looked at as one of the leaders of the Democrat Party.
Obama is sounding a major alarm.
And Barack Obama lost his mind at the prospect of this bombshell defeat.
Many states across America used the coronavirus pandemic as cover to change voting laws to facilitate ballot harvesting and mail-in voting during the 2020 election.
Critics contend these changes allowed Democrats to juice their voting turnout which proved decisive in November.
Republican legislatures around the country passed election integrity laws to unwind many of the “emergency” measures put in place since the coronavirus pandemic is over.
In a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago, Obama railed against the new Republican election integrity laws by parroting falsehoods.
“That’s the kind of dangerous behavior that we’re going to have to push back on,” Obama began.
Obama falsely claimed an election integrity law in Georgia created “a different set of rules for how votes are counted in Atlanta versus how they’re counted in the rest of Georgia.”
This is not true.
This law does not allow the state legislature to overturn the results of an election if Democrats win.
What the law does allow for is the State Election Board to replace poor performing county election supervisors only after a high bar for official misconduct is reached.
“The law does state that the bar for suspension is high: either a minimum of three clear violations of State Election Board rules, or ‘demonstrated nonfeasance, malfeasance, or gross negligence in the administration of the elections’ in two consecutive elections,” The New York Times reported.
11Alive in Georgia’s legal analyst Page Pate fact-checked the claim that this law allows for overturning of results and found it false.
“It is not true that the new elections law in Georgia gives the state elections board the authority to overturn the results of an election simply because it doesn’t like the result,” Pate stated.
In his speech, Obama also implored woke corporations to flex their muscle with acts of economic blackmail against red states to block passage of election integrity laws.
Obama also claimed the manner in which America voted from 1788 to 2019 was racist and only the 2020 rules passed muster.
“I think the corporate community has a responsibility to at least call folks out on that. Because that transcends policy,” Obama added. “This really has to do with the basic rules by which we have all agreed to keep this diverse and multiracial democracy functioning.”
Obama claimed states looking to go back to how Americans voted in the 2008 and 2012 elections—that Obama won—was somehow rigging the election.
“Are we going to stick to those rules or are we going to start rigging the game in a way that breaks it?” Obama continued. “And that’s not going to be good for business, not to mention not good for our soul.”
It’s no surprise that Democrats want to keep the 2020 rules in place and even expand them by mailing even more unsolicited ballots out to voters.
But Obama is not telling the truth about the new election integrity law in Georgia.
