Lindsey Graham Accuses Biden Of Playing Race Card In Georgia - Did He?

Written By BlabberBuzz | Tuesday, 30 March 2021 05:45

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday attacked President Joe Biden for playing “the race card” on a recently passed law that seeks to improve the integrity of elections in Georgia.

“You know what’s sick is [to] have the president of the United States play the race card continuously in such a hypocritical way,” Graham told Fox News Sunday.

“He said the filibuster was a relic of the Jim Crow era. Well, he made an hour speech when he was a senator suggesting the filibuster was the best thing for the Senate to make it different [to] the House.”

Graham made the comments in response to a question from host Chris Wallace on the 95-page Georgia law enacted on March 25 by the Republican majority House and Senate.

The bill passed the state House by a 100-75 vote and the state Senate by a 34-20 vote, with no Democrats supporting the reform proposals.

The Republican-led changes were to assure accessible but fair voting, including needing photo or state-approved identification to vote absentee by mail. The law also requires that secure drop boxes be placed inside early voting locations, with constant surveillance, and it expands early voting across the state to address a key Democrat concern.

The law, the Election Integrity Act of 2021, also reduces the election cycle for runoffs to four weeks from nine and requires a minimum of one week of early voting before Election Day.

In the statement made by Biden in Georgia, he said: "More Americans voted in the 2020 elections than any election in our nation’s history. In Georgia we saw this most historic demonstration of the power of the vote twice – in November and then again in the runoff election for the U.S. Senate seats in January. Recount after recount and court case after court case upheld the integrity and outcome of a clearly free, fair, and secure democratic process."

"This is Jim Crow in the 21st Century. It must end. We have a moral and Constitutional obligation to act. I once again urge Congress to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to make it easier for all eligible Americans to access the ballot box and prevent attacks on the sacred right to vote," he continued.

At last, he concluded: "And I will take my case to the American people – including Republicans who joined the broadest coalition of voters ever in this past election to put the country before the party.

If you have the best ideas, you have nothing to hide. Let the people vote."
