ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has drawn protests as he signed into law a sweeping Republican-sponsored overhaul of state elections.
It's one of a wave of GOP-backed state election bills introduced after former President Donald Trump stoked false claims that fraud led to his 2020 election defeat.
President Joe Biden called the GOP efforts “un-American” Thursday.
Separately, Georgia authorities said one Black House representative was arrested while she was protesting outside the governor's bill-signing ceremony and jailed. She has since been released.
