Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr appeared on America’s Newsroom Monday to react to the Justice Department lawsuit against his state’s election law. The Wall Street Journal published an editorial Sunday called out the Biden Justice for playing politics with the suit.
“First of all, The Wall Street Journal is spot on,” Carr told host Dana Perino. “This is just a blatantly political lawsuit. In fact, I’ve said it’s not a lawsuit, it’s a campaign flyer. The Department of Justice is simply playing politics, they are not upholding the rule of law.”
However, the suit is not just political, it’s also unconstitutional. “This blatantly political action taken by the United States Department of Justice is factually, legally, and constitutionally wrong,” Carr said. “Anybody who will actually read the Georgia law sees it strengthens security, it expands access and it improves transparency, and that’s why we will be successful defending this particular action, as we will the other seven.”
This is the eighth lawsuit filed against the Georgia law.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
