Biden says he expects to run for the second term
Joe Biden’s government is attempting to issue coronavirus “vaccination records” to show that holders have been vaccinated.
The initiative calls for the development of a standard ID card for Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against Covid-19 to reduce the risk of infection, as companies with 17 groups and government agencies are already back to full capacity to work on The Washington Post.
In the meantime, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator under Donald Trump, suggested in a CNN interview that hundreds of thousands of deaths from the pandemic could be “alleviated” if the former president had acted differently.
Court battle against Georgia election overhaul uncertain
Trials of Republican-led election restrictions in Georgia and elsewhere are facing an uncertain path in a legal system that has become more conservative in recent years.
Groups opposed to Georgia’s major overhaul of electoral law filed a lawsuit in federal court in Atlanta Thursday after the bill was signed by state governor Brian Kemp.
Richard Hasen, an electoral law expert at the University of California’s Irvine Law School, said the outcome was difficult to predict.
“Many of the things the bill does are in line with what other states are already doing. So the question arises whether restricting voting rights for bad purposes is illegal, even if the restriction doesn’t go as far as some other states (or Georgia has considered), ”he told the Associated Press.
The legislation is part of a wave of GOP-backed electoral laws introduced in states across the country after former President Donald Trump fueled false fraud claims regarding the 2020 elections.
The controversial bill includes extensive voting restrictions such as restricting the use of ballot boxes, reducing the time it takes people to apply for a postal vote, and laying down requirements for photo ID for postal voting.
Critics say the restrictions in the bill violate the constitutional rights of all Georgians and disproportionately affect color voters in violation of the landmark 1965 Suffrage Act.
