Jim Crow Echoes in Georgia Legislature’s Voting Restrictions

Georgia Republicans didn’t like the results of the 2020 election so they decided they would try to dictate who they will let vote and who they won’t let vote. Republican legislators have deliberately targeted Black and brown Georgians with a disgraceful string of bills that harken back to the dark days of Jim Crow in Georgia. If anyone has any doubts whatsoever about the racial targeting of this proposed legislation they need look no further than its ban on weekend early voting which will end Souls to the Polls, the longstanding tradition of Black congregations in Georgia going to vote after Sunday services.

Common Cause GA calls for immediate resignation of Reps Allen, Carter, Clyde, Greene, Hice and Loudermilk

In the wake of Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Common Cause Georgia is calling for the immediate resignation of Representatives Rick W. Allen, Earl L. "Buddy" Carter, Andrew S. Clyde, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jody B. Hice and Barry Loudermilk after they voted to overturn the will of the people, failed to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election, and played a clear role in spreading disinformation around the election, leading to the violence.

DOJ, SEC & Ethics Complaints Filed Against Senator Loeffler

Today, Common Cause filed complaints calling for investigations of Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “Voters have the right to expect that our elected officials put our interests first,” said Common Cause Georgia Program Coordinator Cindy Battles. “And there shouldn’t be any question about it. Obviously, in this situation, there are questions about how Sen. Loeffler handled the information received in private briefings. There are also questions about whether she should have shared that information with her constituents, back in January when she received it. We look forward to the results of these investigations.”
