GOP Trying to Block People Who Don't Own Cars from Voting in GA

Georgia residents wishing to vote might be out of luck if they don't have a car thanks to Brian Kemp's new rule which amounts to a poll tax, any voter without a car registered in Georgia, could be blocked from voting! Sunday before midnight, the Georgia secretary of state snuck out an “Emergency” rules change that would make it far more difficult for students and poor people to register to vote before the Senate runoff.

It allows any county elections official to block registration if a voter is suspected of being a non-resident, the evidence being that they do not have a registered Georgia automobile. No car equals no vote in Georgia senate race 2021. You can appeal, but only AFTER the Senate run-off. Just how crooked is US politics?

Greg Palast joins Thom Hartmann to explain this voter suppression tactic. Greg Palast is an investigative journalist and author. His latest book is “How Trump Stole 2020”.
