WATCH: Legal AF Explains Why Pro-Herchel Walker Event Was Likely Illegal & Unquestionably Hypocritical

Why do Republican candidates and their supporters seem to have absolutely no qualms about partaking in illegal behavior to get what they want — often openly? Legal AF from MeidasTouch takes on one such incident, carried out in public by a group pushing voters to support Herschel Walker.

Gas prices are the big-ticket issue for Republicans this election cycle. They’re pushing the lie that Joe Biden has caused the increase through actions like supporting measures to slow the damage of climate change (sometimes even citing the Green New Deal legislation despite it not passing).

In fact, a group supporting Herschel Walker’s run to represent Georgia in the United States Senate held an event giving away free gas, and implying that his opponent, incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock, somehow supported higher gas prices.

In under ten minutes, Legal AF‘s Ben Meiselas breaks down why this could be a violation of both state and federal election laws, and along the way points out how it’s very clearly hypocritical, regardless of legality.

Meiselas cites Georgia law forbidding anyone to offer gifts or incentives for registering, voting, or supporting a certain candidate, and points out that while the event did not require a promise to vote a certain way, organizers definitely made it clear that the free gas giveaway was about support for Herschel Walker.

“Let’s look at Georgia law…states the following. Quote: Any person who gives or receives, offers to give or receive, or participates in the giving or receiving, of money or gifts for the purpose of registering as a voter, voting, or voting for a particular candidate, in any primary or election, shall be guilty of a felony.”

By the way, this is the same justification Republicans used to ban giving out bottled water to people standing in line at the polls for hours — but they’re comfortable with it when they’re sure it benefits their candidate.
