Late last week, Stacey Abrams and Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock both did rather dramatic flip flops on voter ID. It was a deeply calculated move, done as a show of support for the compromise election reform bill proposed by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), which includes elements of voter ID.

Both Abrams and Warnock had previously stated their staunch opposition to voter ID, which was in line with what most elected Democrats and radical activists on the left feel about the subject (even though even a majority of rank and file Democrats support voter ID). Court battles have been waged for years in states across the country over GOP-led voter ID legislation, with Democrats declaring war on Republican efforts to make our elections more secure.

But in doing an about-face on the issue, both Abrams and Warnock blatantly lied when asked by the media about their changes of heart, both of them stating in so many words that they had “never” opposed voter ID and that it was just something made up by their Republican opponents with which to bash them (the irony here in them making such a claim simply cannot be overstated, I should note).

How is the media reporting on Abrams’ and Warnock’s dramatic change of heart? By proclaiming it’s merely an “evolution” in thinking, as the Democrat apologist newspaper the Washington Post “reported” today:

In the last two months, @staceyabrams has gone from calling proposed voting laws “Jim Crow in a suit and tie” to something no one ever objected to and, rather than rightly point out the gaslighting, @washingtonpost and @AaronBlake called it “an evolution” pic.twitter.com/n8XDYelxru

But even accounting for that and the idea
