Ga. Lawmaker Complains About Making Voting Too Easy for Blacks

First Lady Michelle Obama was in Georgia campaigning for Democratic Senate candidate FranMillar-638x477Michelle Nunn on Monday, which rankled some local Republican lawmakers.

One state senator was so put off by the visit that he lashed out at a decision to allow one of Georgia’s largest black counties to have early voting on Sunday at a shopping mall.

Frustrated that expanded early voting will increase African-American turnout, State Senator Fran Millar (R) wrote a nasty response that tied early voting to Mrs. Obama’s visit to the peach state.

“How ironic! Michel[l]e Obama comes to town and Chicago politics comes to DeKalb,” Miller began. “Now we are to have Sunday voting at South DeKalb Mall just prior to the election. Per Jim Galloway of the AJC, this location is dominated by African American shoppers and it is near several large African American mega churches such as New Birth Missionary Baptist. Galloway also points out the Democratic Party thinks this is a wonderful idea – what a surprise. I’m sure Michelle Nunn and Jason Carter are delighted with this blatantly partisan move in DeKalb.”

Bishop Eddie L. Long’s megachurch is in Dekalb County, not far from the area where Sunday voting has been expanded.

“Is it possible church buses will be used to transport people directly to the mall since the poll will open when the mall opens? If this happens, so much for the accepted principle of separation of church and state,” Miller concluded.

Getting “Souls to the polls” has been around for years and normally uses carpooling to deliver voters to precincts.

One would think that, in the evangelical South, Miller would want his Christian brothers and sisters to vote early. It seems, however, there is a division here that is stronger than any Christian bond.
