Authorities apprehended Georgia State Representative while she stood at the door knocking as Governor Brian Kemp resided in the room on the other side of the door with his selected group of white lawmakers. The small group of white Congressmen watched as Gov. Kemp signed S.B. 202, a bill that disproportionately targets the civil liberties of Black voters.
