    Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed into law a measure that will make it much harder for minorities and Democrats to vote. He predicts critics "will threaten, boycott, sue, demonize and team up with their friends in the national media to call me everything in the book." Golly gee, Governor, why do you think that? Could it be you know full well that this measure has nothing to do with "election integrity" and everything to do with ensuring Retrumplicans stay in office?

    In their efforts to make it harder for minorities and Democrats to vote, Retrumplicans are becoming increasingly cruel and heartless. I expect many of the Retrumplicans' voting restrictions will be challenged in court.

    It's now illegal in Georgia to give food and water to voters in line

    Brian Kemp, Georgia's Retrumplican Governor, calls the state's new restrictions on voting a "common-sense election law." Not only are the restrictions definitely not common sense, they were enacted solely because Retrumplicans believe Trump's lies about "widespread voter fraud" and a "rigged, stolen election." Joe Lockhart, former White House Press Secretary for President Clinton, told CNN today, "This is all about keeping Republicans in power, not what is good for our people or good for our democracy."

    For starters: Don't drink Coca-Cola, don't ship packages via UPS, don't shop at The Home Depot, don't fly Delta Airlines and don't buy insurance From Aflac. These companies are based in Georgia and are refusing to denounce the state's Retrumplicans for restricting voting rights.

    Atlanta pastor Tim McDonald s not fool by the Retrumplicans' insistence that all they care about is "election integrity" when they impose voting restrictions: "Black folks are not stupid. We know their tricks. We know their motivation. They are the Ku Klux Klan in three-piece suits." Indeed they are.

    The backlash – or "blacklash" – against the "win-at-all-costs" Georgia Retrumplicans is growing.

    Republicans in Arizona proposed allowing the legislature to overturn presidential election results and appoint its own electors who would vote for a different candidate. Thankfully the proposal did not advance.

    Dimon says "voting must be accessible and equitable." The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans say voting should be very difficult for minorities and Democrats – and they're doing everything they can to make it so.

    CEOs are finally speaking out against Georgia's new voting restrictions – but why didn't they protest before the Governor signed them into law?
