DOJ lawsuit over Georgia’s election laws may ‘backfire’ against the Biden administration and vindicate voter ID for mail-in ballots, legal expert warns

  • Legal scholar Jonathan Turley believes new DOJ election suit is on thin ground
  • Says that Georgia’s new election law is similar to laws on the book in other states
  • DOJ accuses Georgia of racism in the state’s sweeping new voting law
  • Georgia governor insists the provisions are fair and provide election security 

A conservative legal scholar has argued that the Department of Justice’s new lawsuit challenging Georgia’s election law could backfire against the Biden administration and fail in court.

‘I’m highly skeptical and I think that they may ultimately regret this move. It could indeed clarify this issue in the way that the Biden administration does not want,’ Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, told Fox News.

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday announced the suit against Georgia, alleging Republican state lawmakers passed a sweeping election reform to discriminate against black voters.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp staunchly denied the claim, and said that the law’s provisions limiting ballot drop-boxes and requiring mail-in voters to identify themselves with a state ID number are necessary to ensure integrity at the polls.
