And I Would Have Gotten Away With it Too, If it Weren't For Your Meddling N***ers!

First we have Georgia State Senator Fran Millar objecting to get out the vote efforts in black ares then following this up by saying explicitly that he it is the black voter voter bit:
The Georgia state senator who ranted about excessive black voting and vowed to fight a move to expand early voting in DeKalb County defended his remarks on Facebook, saying that he would rather have more educated voters than an increase in the total number of voters.

The Republican state senator, Fran Millar (pictured), wrote that in a comment responding to others on his post where he vowed to end Sunday balloting in DeKalb County because that area is "dominated by African American shoppers" and has "large African American mega churches."

"I do agree with Galloway and I never claimed to be nonpartisan," Millar wrote. "I would prefer more educated voters than a greater increase in the number of voters. If you don't believe this is an efort [sic] to maximize Democratic votes pure and simple, then you are not a realist. This is a partisan stunt and I hope it can be stopped. Furthermore I don't control where people are allowed to vote but am glad Brookhaven has been added for the last week."
This is followed up by the Georgia Secretary of State, whose job is to protect the franchise, starts a bogus investigation of a GOTV group, and then is caught on tape calling increased black votes a problem:
The audio, posted on YouTube by Better Georgia, features a man identified as Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp telling fellow Republicans at a July 12, 2014 event in Gwinnett County:
In closing I just wanted to tell you real quick, after we get through this runoff, you know the Democrats are working hard, and all these stories about them, you know, registering all these minority voters that are out there and others that are sitting on the sidelines, if they can do that, they can win these elections in November. But we’ve got to do the exact same thing. I would encourage all of you, if you have an Android or an Apple device, to download that app, and maybe your goal is to register one new Republican voter.
Clearly the Supreme Court was either smoking some very good weed, or were a bunch of contemptible corrupt partisans, when they gutted the Voting Rights Act.

My money is on the latter.
