Here's the latest episode in the voter suppression saga in Georgia.
Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor and vote-suppressing secretary of state, didn't mince words at a campaign gathering. The meeting was behind closed doors, but Rolling Stone found a 21-minute audio, in which Kemp said that the get-out-the-vote effort by Stacey Abrams, his Democratic opponent, "continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote." Concern, Brian? Really? Isn't voting what this country is supposed to be about?
His whole strategy is to keep people of color from voting in an election where his opponent is a formidable African-American woman. This piece gives you more insight into the utterly shameless Kemp. He needs a shame transplant, if he can find a suitable donor. Good luck with that in today's Republican Party, where shame is in short supply.
First in my class in Officer Candidate School. Late to the conclusion that our attitude toward the military is idolatrous.
