Sen. Raphael Warnock admitted to signing an email containing false information about Georgia’s voting laws, the Washington Post revealed.

The Post flagged an email signed by Warnock that was sent out by the nonprofit 3.14 Action after the new voting legislation passed on March 25.

“Warnock, one of two new Democratic senators representing Georgia, signed an email sent out by the advocacy group 3.14 Action after the law passed, which claimed it ended no-excuse mail voting and restricted early voting on the weekends,” the Post reported.

The proposals contained in the email were not signed into law. The final bill expands early voting in Georgia to 17 days and still allows no-excuse absentee voting.

The e-mail was sent out on March 30, five days after Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, signed the final bill, according to Fox News.

A Warnock campaign spokesperson told Fox News that the senator had signed off on the email before the law was passed, when those provisions were still under consideration.

The new Georgia voting laws have been under harsh criticism, with President Joe Biden and other Democrats calling the laws “Jim Crow”-era restrictions.

Biden has also received “four Pinocchios” by the Post for falsely claiming the new Georgia laws “ends voting hours early.”

Biden said the new legislation would end voting hours early so “working people can’t cast their votes.”

Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler argued that Biden’s claims were inaccurate.

“One could understand a flub in a news conference. But then this same claim popped up in an official presidential statement. Not a single expert we consulted who has studied the law understood why Biden made this claim, as this was the section of law that expanded early voting for many Georgians,” Kessler wrote.

“On Election Day in Georgia, polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and if you are in line by 7 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot. Nothing in the new law changes those rules. However, the law did make some changes to early voting. But experts say the net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them,” Kessler continued.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
