The department went straight to the prosecution, suing Georgia in a 46-page complaint that carefully details the schedule for the rise in voter turnout and the use of postal voting, and ties the dots to the specific prohibitions lawmakers put in place to address willful discrimination to demonstrate. The DOJ also claims that from 1968 to 2013, while Georgia fell under pre-approval and had to submit amendments to ensure they were not discriminated against, Georgia failed the test 177 times. Add to this the post-election machinations of President Donald Trump demanding that Georgia’s Secretary of State “find” the extra votes he needs to win and berate anyone who doesn’t play along, and the DOJ could have a winning hand, even if, post -Brnovich, there is a more restrictive review of constitutionality.
