They could have hidden it better

I really think those racist legislators in Georgia screwed up when they included the ban on giving people water as they wait in line to vote. I mean, that's not a really effective way to skew the vote to Republicans. The assortment of other voting restrictions that are much likely to be more effective. Criminalizing giving people water is just cruel, the optics are terrible, and it makes a nice easy way to demonstrate that the bill has nothing to do with making elections more secure. Without the "we would jail Jesus if he helps someone in line to vote" provision, the bill would still be heavily criticized. But it would be a little harder to get across to the public just how overboard the new law is.
