A Better Look at the Georgia Primaries and Election Integrity | Hell & High Water

John Heilemann talks with former Attorney General Eric Holder and speechwriter Sam Koppelman, co-authors of the new book Our Unfinished March: The Violent Past and Imperiled Future of the Vote — A History, a Crisis, a Plan. They discuss the significance and larger implications of the Georgia primaries, why Brian Kemp’s victory over David Perdue is no victory for Democracy, and the insidious nature of Georgia’s voting laws that protect the counting of ballots while making it harder for Black citizens to vote. Tune in to the full episode to hear about the importance of the right to vote and why it has been under siege since the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder, and their wide-ranging prescriptions for saving the American democratic process, including not just protections of voting rights but fundamental reforms to the Supreme Court, the U.S. Senate, congressional redistricting, and the Electoral College.
