Gov. Brian Kemp responds to Justice Department’s voting rights lawsuit

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp criticized the Department of Justice and Biden administration for suing the state of Georgia over its new voting law. Last March, Gov. Kemp signed a voting bill that includes new voter identification requirements for absentee ballots, empowers state officials to take over local elections boards, and limits the use of ballot drop boxes. The bill was qualified by critics over 

As a response, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Friday (6/25) morning that the U.S. government will sue the state of Georgia. Gov. Kemp later released a statement in which he criticized the move and said the suit is “born out of the lies and misinformation the Biden administration has pushed against Georgia’s Election Integrity Act from the start.”

“Let me be clear: The Department of Justice lawsuit announced today is legally and constitutionally dead wrong. Their faults and baseless accusations are quite honestly disgusting,” the Republican governor said. He qualified the lawsuit as a politically motivated assault on the rule of law. 

“I can’t say I’m surprised, the president and his administration, Stacey Abrams, and their far-left allies have lied about the Election Integrity Act from the beginning,” he said.

Kemp vowed to fight the lawsuit in court while portraying the legal challenge as a threat to conservatives everywhere.

“Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, and their allies tried to force an unconstitutional elections power grab through Congress – and failed,” Kemp said in the statement. 

“Now, they are weaponizing the U.S. Department of Justice to carry out their far-left agenda that undermines election integrity and empowers federal government overreach in our democracy. As Secretary of State, I fought the Obama Justice Department twice to protect the security of our elections – and won. I look forward to going three-for-three to ensure it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat in Georgia.”

President Biden has not commented on the filing of the lawsuit publicly yet.
