You really have to be a monster to be a republican - GA Bill to prevent voters from getting food

I heard about their voter suppression bill a few days ago. I wasn't surprised that they would go after Sunday voting to try to suppress black voters, wasn't surprised about voter ID, but I am taken aback that they want to make it illegal to give food to people waiting in long lines.

In addition to banning Sunday voting, the bill would also make it illegal to hand out food and drinks to voters stuck in long polling place lines and would mandate that "absentee ballot drop boxes could only be located inside in-person early voting sites during working hours."

2. This will not stand.

Hopefully we can squash this bill before it gets too far.
The nerve of these people. Because white upper class neighborhoods rarely have to stand in line lying. They really need to find someone who will flip the number of precincts/voting machines needed to show them how cruel this is.

3. Then

You hand out water just before the line starts. 200 feet away or something.

Fight the law sure, but we also need to be prepared to circumvent it too.

6. I didnt think you could give away anything of value while people were voting

"Hi, I'm here from the Republican party of (insert state name here) . Here is a free pizza and drinks while you are waiting. Can we count on your support?"

Voter opens pizza box. "Oh look, it says, vote for these candidates inside the box"
