Warnock team says senator OK'd email with wrong info on Georgia election law before it passed
Georgia Republicans who drafted, passed and enacted the law say it attempts to secure the state's voting system.
A spokesman for the campaign of Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock has acknowledged the senator signed an email that the group 3.14 Action disseminated about the recently enacted Georgia election law that included incorrect information, but said he did so before the final draft was signed into law.
The email said that the legislation nixed no-excuse mail voting and restricted early voting on weekends, according to the Washington Post. However, those part of the legislation were in early proposals and never became law.
Georgia Republicans who drafted, passed and enacted the law say it attempts to secure the state's voting system. Critics say the law, which now requires ID to request an absentee ballot, restricts voting, particularly for minorities.
