(Alexandria, VA) – July 6, 2021: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed a motion to intervene to help defend Georgia’s election integrity law against the Department of Justice lawsuit. The Department of Justice is claiming that the state’s election integrity law violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. PILF is the first group to file a motion to intervene to defend Georgia’s election integrity law against the DOJ.
“This lawsuit by the Department of Justice is not only an abuse of power, but also an attempt to turn the Voting Rights Act into a one-way partisan ratchet,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams. “The Department of Justice cannot take the power from the people of Georgia to run their own elections. The Foundation’s experience in Voting Rights Act cases and election integrity and transparency issues will allow us to help Georgia defend its legislation.”
