Fear and partisanship in Georgia (with Gabriel Sterling)
The controversial new election law passed in Georgia has been derided by many, including Stacey Abrams and President Biden, and has inspired many high-profile businesses, like Major League Baseball, to relocate interests out of the state. But Gabriel Sterling, the chief financial and operations official in the office of the Georgia Secretary of State, is a defender of the law. Sterling, who was an outspoken critic of former President Trump’s bullying of state officials in the handling of the 2020 election, joins Michael Isikoff, Daniel Klaidman and Victoria Bassetti to talk about what the law does and doesn’t do, whether or not the 2020 election was free and fair, and about whether or not Georgia’s Election Integrity Act of 2021 was, at its core, a Republican party power-grab.
