Nancy Gbana Abudu, the deputy legal director at SPLC, was nominated by Joe Brandon to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit that covers parts of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. Abudu has a long history of extremism starting with a stint at the ACLU that stretched from 2005 to 2019 as well as her stint on the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Abudu says that voter ID laws and proof of citizenship are voter suppression. But, when you think about it that is correct. There is little doubt that those two policies do indeed suppress illegal voting. That explains why Joe Brandon selected her. Encouraging illegal voting would work in his favor in 2024 should his bosses in Washington decide to run for reelection. That would explain why he allowed 1.9 million illegals to rush our borders in 2021.
She notably said “photo ID” and “proof of citizenship,” two long-established requirements to vote, are indicative of “voter suppression:”
Obviously, we do a lot when it comes to voter suppression, which includes five priority areas: photo ID, proof of citizenship, restrictions we see when it comes to registration, early voting as well as absentee voting and the restrictions we see when it comes to criminal convictions. We also do a lot with student voting.
Abudu has endorsed the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act — H.R. 4. She says it is necessary “to protect the future of American democracy.”
“As HR 4 moves to the Senate, some senators have already committed to doing everything in their power to oppose the bill – up to and including leveraging a legislative tool popular with pro-Jim Crow senators of the past – to prevent its passage and to further erode the fundamental right to vote,” Abudu wrote, likening Republicans today to Democrats who upheld laws that discriminated against minorities in the past.”
Let me remind Abudu that the Jim Crow Senators were all Democrats. And voter ID is not a poll tax and has no history in the Democrat’s Jim Crow era.
Biden’s judicial pick for the 11th Circuit aligns with the administration’s opposition to election security measures. Upon the signing of the Georgia bill by GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, for instance, the president called it “Jim Crow in the 21st century.”
In a statement to The Daily Wire, the Republican National Committee (RNC) said voter turnout actually went up in Georgia following the bill, revealing it is not restrictive.
“Turnout in Atlanta’s 2021 municipal elections rose by 17 percent compared to 2017 following the passage of Georgia’s recent election integrity legislation — clear proof that Democrats are lying about election integrity for political gain,” spokesman Gates McGavick said.
