"As the Attorney General of Arizona, another state where the DOJ is attempting to intimidate local officials, please know that we stand with you in this fight and will do whatever we can to push back against this blatantly political and unmerited attack," Brnovich penned on Friday to Georgia AG Christopher Carr.
Brnovich was acting after the DOJ announced it was arranging a lawsuit against George over its voting methods signed into law in March, insisting that it violates the Voting Rights Act.
"The right of all eligible citizens to vote is the central pillar of our democracy, the right from which all other rights ultimately flow," Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement. "This lawsuit is the first step of many we are taking to ensure that all eligible voters can cast a vote; that all lawful votes are counted; and that every voter has access to accurate information."
The claim asserts that several terms of the bill were utilized to reject or shorten the right to vote on account of race, claiming that the combined effects of the laws on Black votes, was especially associated with lawmakers.
It examines provisions including one forbidding government entities from shared unsolicited absentee ballot applications, a shortening of the deadline of absentee ballots, regulations on voter ID, the bar on counting out-of-precinct provisional ballots cast before 5 pm on Election Day and the limitation of the use of absentee ballot drop boxes.
But advocates of the law and similar works have contended that their actions utilized following the 2020 election are meant to ensure the ballot box and guard against voter fraud. Garland has also slammed attempts by Arizona to carry an audit of the 2020 election – which led to Brnovich attacking Garland for "posturing."
"Let's be clear, this isn't a lawsuit, this is a campaign flier," Carr said of the Georgia lawsuit on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Friday. "The Department of Justice is playing politics. They're not upholding the rule of law. And this blatantly political lawsuit is legally, factually and constitutionally wrong. Anybody who looks at our law can see that it improves security, it improves access, it improves transparency in Georgia's law. And that's why it's going to be upheld."
Brnovich praises Carr’s efforts and Georgia’s refusal to yield to pressure on the matter: "Unfortunately, the DOJ seems more concerned with appeasing far-left pundits and radical activists than upholding the rule of law."
