Fox News host Sean Hannity is calling on other states to emulate Georgia and enact voter suppression legislation so that Republicans can win elections, but wants us to believe such measures have absolutely nothing to do with keeping minority voters from casting ballots.
Republicans and their enablers on conservative media saw in the 2020 election that they cannot win when voter turnout is high, so they’re bound and determined to make it as difficult as possible for Americans to vote.
Monday evening on his show, Hannity suggested that five states need to pass legislation similar to what was signed last week by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA):
“Now we turn to an important story on election integrity, and it matters. People ask me, ‘Hannity, what can I do?’ Well, first, if you live in Georgia, if you live in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, you want to work with your state legislatures.”
Be sure and note that four of the five states Hannity referenced have Republican legislatures. Only Nevada is controlled by Democrats.
Hannity then continued by praising Gov. Kemp:
“Over the weekend, in Georgia — that’s right, their governor, Brian Kemp, finally did one thing worthwhile and signed a new bill into law.”
The Fox host also claimed that voter suppression efforts like the one in Georgia have nothing to do with racism:
“This has nothing to do with race, it has everything to do with integrity and the confidence in our elections.”
Integrity and honesty? That’s rich coming from the same network that is being sued for $1.6 billion for repeating lies about election fraud even though the federal agencies tasked with ensuring election security said the 2020 election was the fairest and most secure in history despite what Trump and his enablers have tried to suggest.
As we’ve seen for decades, the only way Republicans can win elections is by cheating. That’s why they want to keep people away from the polls by any means necessary.
