Sen. Raphael Warnock admitted to signing an email containing false information about Georgia’s voting laws, the Washington Post revealed.
The Post flagged an email signed by Warnock that was sent out by the nonprofit 3.14 Action after the new voting legislation passed on March 25.
“Warnock, one of two new Democratic senators representing Georgia, signed an email sent out by the advocacy group 3.14 Action after the law passed, which claimed it ended no-excuse mail voting and restricted early voting on the weekends,” the Post reported.
The proposals contained in the email were not signed into law. The final bill expands early voting in Georgia to 17 days and still allows no-excuse absentee voting.
The e-mail was sent out on March 30, five days after Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, signed the final bill, according to Fox News.
