The Department of Justice has finally taken on True the Vote, the right-wing group behind the wrongful challenge of hundreds of thousands of legal Georgia voters.

True the Vote's challenges were the subject of our film Vigilante. Stream it for FREE:
I know what you’re thinking: Why did Justice sue two weeks AFTER the #GeorgiaRunoff election?

Luckily, the film and our related reports got out in Georgia before the election.…
We held special voter impact showings from Coffee County to Gwinnett to Valdosta. Crucially, we confronted and exposed True the Vote’s agents, every one a Republican official, scaring them away from further challenges.

Another FRAUD perpetrated by Warnock. Curtis Dixon never coached #HerschelWalker
"Before Herschel Walker proved himself as the best football player on the planet, he was the best football player in Wrightsville, Ga.

His high school coach, Gary Phillips, remembers how everybody knew it except for Herschel.…

#BrianKemp ordered the arrest of the first African-Americans elected to the Quitman school board – whom he charged with the felony crime of ballot stuffing! The #Quitman10 were paraded before cameras in handcuffs and orange suits, like they were terrorists in Guantanamo. #gapol
All charges were dropped — eventually — but not until one school board member, Latashia Head, who suffered from lupus, died. Her father said the cause was “stress brought about by Brian P. Kemp.”… Image
In our film, Vigilante, we talk to local journalist George Rhynes, who extensively covered Kemp's persecution of the #Quitman10. Ahead of the #GeorgiaRunoff elections on Dec 6, Rhynes wants to hold a showing of our film in Quitman, but he needs your help.… Image

Despite a judge adding one Saturday to #EarlyVoting for the #GeorgiaRunoff, that’s still only 7 days, and in some counties only 5 days.

Not mentioned in the press: how #SB202 shutters all #dropboxes except on Early Voting days, during Early Voting hours.…
Dropbox votes fall 2:1 for Democrats. So, cutting Early Voting all but eliminates the dropbox ballots that won the runoff for Warnock in 2021.… #Georgia #Runoff #RunoffGA
More: Mail-in and dropbox voting in #Georgia plunged by over 80% because of these new rules. While the Judge will allow an extra Saturday of voting (because that’s when HE votes), Fulton County (Atlanta) could not qualify because the deadline for application is too soon. #gapol

Thanks to Gov. Kemp's new Jim Crow law, #SB202, #Warnock’s mail-in vote this year fell off a cliff to 164,282—a drop of 73%. While the Republican absentee vote also fell, the drop resulting from the new law mainly punished Warnock… #Georgia #Runoff #gapol
Among the provisions of #SB202 that cut into the mail-in vote: Dropboxes were all but banned in urban (ie Black) counties. Specifically, counties aren't allowed to provide more than 1 dropbox per 100,000 population—reducing the dropboxes in the Atlanta area from 107 to 25!
The decline in mail-in balloting, especially those returned to dropboxes, has a distinct racial tinge. Georgia’s biggest counties by population, Fulton and Cobb — both majority non-white — saw mail-in balloting dive from 259,000 to just 43,000.…

Dear six Southern Baptist seminary presidents that denounced #CriticalRaceTheory last week without defining what it is (@DannyAkin @JamieKDew @AdamGreenway @Jeff_Iorg @albertmohler and @PreachingJKA): Let's talk.

#CRT #SBC #CriticalRace…
First, Questions:
1. What is your understanding of #CriticalRaceTheory? You never explain that--not in one word of your statement. Instead you say it stems from Marxist or secular thought and that's why you are denouncing it. I find that literally ignorant and ironic. 2/
That #CriticalRaceTheory was born of Marxist thought is ignorant. It came from African-American legal scholars in 1980s post-Civil Rights era. In wake of assassination of Dr. King, scholars like #DerrickBell #PatriciaWilliams examined impact of race on law. #CRT #CriticalRace 3/
