Karine Jean-Pierre ridiculed for claiming ‘there was suppression’ in GA election: ‘Lots of conspiracy theories?’

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was mocked Wednesday for being one of many Democratic figures who continued to advance the claim that Georgia was affected by voter suppression laws in recent elections.

Fox News’ Jacques Heinrich asked Jean-Pierre about the Biden administration’s continued attacks on Georgia’s election integrity law. President Biden and other Democrats have called the law “Jim Crow 2.0” and a way for Republicans to suppress voters, especially African-Americans. However, Georgia’s primary, general and runoff elections saw record turnout, which seems to contradict this narrative.

Still, Jean-Pierre noted that issues of voter harassment have been reported in Georgia.

“There was an invasion. We saw it during the Georgia election, so that’s what was reported. So I’ll leave it to those reports. But nevertheless, the American people historically … to make their voices louder and louder out. Sure,” answered Jean-Pierre.

Other Democratic figures also continued to claim that voter suppression due to the Election Integrity Act affected Georgia’s election, along with the successful re-election of Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., on Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters, “Despite the Republican legislature’s attempts to make it difficult to vote, our people voted, the people voted, Georgians voted. They said, ‘We’re not going to let these obstacles stand in our way. They said we will not let them. , even if we have to wait in line in the rain.'”

Warnock argued that his successful re-election and record turnout do not indicate that Georgia does not have voter suppression for black voters.

“Frankly. Millions of Georgians have stood in line for hours and are willing to stand in line for hours — to wrap around buildings, to go to blocks, to lines in the cold, to lines in the rain, of course. “Voter suppression does not exist. Instead. , it’s a testament to you, the people, not letting your voice be silenced. I’m proud to stand with you,” Warnock told supporters on Tuesday night.
