Georgia Dem. Rep. Cannon Arrested As Gov. Kemp Signs Elections Bill

It is looking like the old way of behaving isn’t going to play out like it used to. At least not for Rep. Park Cannon who tried to make her way into Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s office banging on his door, interrupting his livestreamed announcement that he had signed an elections bill into law. A bill she totally didn’t agree with that requires ID for absentee ballots, limits drop boxes and changes early voting hours.

Democrat Representative Erica Thomas said she was upset Cannon was arrested at all because state law says legislators are “free from arrest during sessions of the General Assembly” except for charges of treason, felonies or breach of the peace. It’s unclear what charges Cannon is facing. Police arrest Georgia Democratic lawmaker outside governor’s office during protest of election bill (ajc.com)

03/25/2021 —Atlanta, Georgia — Rep. Park Cannon (D-Atlanta) is escorted out of the Georgia Capitol Building by Georgia State Troopers after being asked to stop knocking on a door that lead to Gov. Brian Kemp’s office while Gov. Kemp was signing SB 202 behind closed doors on day 38 of the legislative session at the Georgia State Capitol Building in Atlanta, Thursday, March 25, 2021.

In typical not so peaceful fashion, the Dems cackled and shouted outside the Governors door arguing their way into a set of handcuffs only to have the shock of her life as she’s hauled away like any one would be who acted as such. Could this be happening to her? She’s a Democrat, she’s a Biden gal. Something just ain’t right here and she’s not the only one thinking that. This is not normal in the new abnormal world. Rarely does anyone see a Democrat held responsible for any of their actions. It is looking like something has transpired in Georgia….something got the governor to sign the law that holds accountability in elections….but what?

The officers forcibly removed Cannon, a Democrat from Atlanta, dragging her through the Capitol and pushing her into a police car. Now….I wonder what the charges will be? Wonder if there was a warrant or if her actions were enough for the arrest?

Something tells me it may be an arrest for a bit more than door knocking. What say you?

Which brings us to the next question….”Where was Governor Kemp going immediately after?” Does he always have that much security with him?

The sweeping 94-page legislation divided Republicans and Democrats as it passed the House Special Committee on Election Integrity along party lines.

Voting rights advocates said the measure, Senate Bill 202, would limit voter access by curtailing ballot drop boxes, requiring voter ID for absentee ballots and disqualifying provisional ballots cast in the wrong precinct.

When you read the bill you will know why Stacey, and her Legislators are all in an uproar. God is good…this is a win for Georgia and future elections. All I can say is … WHO’S NEXT!
