The documents, sought by left-leaning watchdog group American Oversight, are subject to Arizona’s public records statute and must be provided to the organization “immediately,” Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael Kemp ruled Monday.

Georgia Seeks Dismissal of Department of Justice Lawsuit Over Voting Law

The state of Georgia on Wednesday asked a judge to toss a case brought by the Department of Justice (DOJ) over a voting law passed earlier this year and signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp.

The federal lawsuit “fails to plead a legally cognizable claim under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act,” Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, a Republican, wrote in the 37-page filing in USA v. Georgia.

Legal precedent holds that discriminatory results must be found to affirm a violation of the act, Carr said.

Judge Halts Effort to Block Parts of Georgia’s Election Integrity Act 2021

U.S. District Judge J. P. Boulee has denied a motion aimed at preventing some portions of Georgia’s new voting law from being implemented ahead of the state legislature runoff elections on July 13. The legal challenge to Georgia’s voting laws, called the Election Integrity Act of 2021, was mounted by the Coalition for Good Governance, a leftist group.

The act was signed into law by Republican Governor Brian Kemp on March 25, 2021. It overhauled election rules in the state. It now mandates voter identification requirements for absentee ballots; it expands early in-person voting; it prohibits officials from sending unsolicited absentee ballot request forms; it restricts the use of ballot drop boxes; it increases staff and voting stations in places where there have been long queues; and it reduces the time people have to request an absentee ballot.

“A federal judge denied an effort to invalidate parts of Georgia’s voting law Wednesday, the first court ruling upholding new election rules approved after last year’s elections,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“U.S. District Judge J.P. Boulee wrote in his order that he wouldn’t ‘change the law in the ninth inning’ amid ongoing runoffs for the state House,” the report said. “Boulee reserved judgment about future elections.”

Georgia AG Denounces DOJ Lawsuit Against Georgia Election Law as ‘Blatantly Political

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr took aim at the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) recently announced lawsuit against the state’s election law, calling the move “constitutionally wrong” and politically motivated.

In a Monday interview on Fox News, Carr objected to Friday’s decision by the DOJ to file a lawsuit against Georgia over the state’s recently passed Election Integrity Act, arguing that, “this blatantly political action taken by the United States Department of Justice is factually, legally and constitutionally wrong,” while alleging that the Justice Department was being “weaponized.”

Factbox: Republicans erect voting barriers across a number of politically crucial U.S. states

Republican lawmakers in a number of politically significant states have passed a wave of new voting requirements and limits this year, saying the measures are needed to curb voter fraud, despite scant evidence of it in the United States.

Backers of the measures cite Republican former President Donald Trump’s baseless claim that fraud underlay his decisive presidential election loss to Democrat Joe Biden in November. Democrats and voting rights advocates have sued state officials over the new laws, denouncing the efforts as partisan power grabs that will disproportionately disenfranchise voters of color.

Vernon Jones, GOP Gubernatorial Candidate, Headed to Arizona to Observe Election Audit

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones is heading to Arizona this week to tour the 2020 election audit taking place there.

Jones, a Republican who is challenging Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, plans to touch down in Arizona late Tuesday. On Wednesday, he will visit with Arizona legislators and see firsthand the forensic audit at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix. “We’ll be doing a lot of high level meetings there with the people who have been the primary organizers of the audit,” C.J. Pearson, Jones’s campaign manager, told The Epoch Times.

Jones, a former state representative who vocally supports former President Donald Trump, is traveling with Bernard Kerik, a onetime police commissioner of New York City. Kerik, a Republican, was pardoned by Trump in 2020 of felony charges including tax fraud. Kerik did not respond to an inquiry. A local sheriff will also join the group after they land, according to Jones’s team.
