Psaki Dismisses the Fact that Biden’s Got ‘Four Pinocchios’ for Claim that the Ga. Election Law Cuts Off Voting Hours Early

‘The fact checkers will also tell you that this bill does not make it easier for people across the state of Georgia to vote’

DOOCY: “But 'The Washington Post' gave that claim four Pinocchios because that part of the law gives counties the option to extend voting hours. So I'm just curious if the President is going to change the way he's talking —"
PSAKI: "Well, fundamentally, the President doesn't believe it should be made harder to vote. He believes it should be easier. And this bill makes it harder to request and return an absentee ballot, it collapses the length of Georgia's runoff election, making it harder for large jurisdictions to open early voting, it imposes rigid new restrictions on local officials' ability to set polling hours to suit the needs of voters in their county. Those are all pieces of the bill. So his view is that we need to make it easier and not harder to vote, and that will continue to be what he advocates for."
