He locates her in a line to vote, sweating in the sweltering Georgia heat, where she says she’s been waiting for more than two and a half hours. Larry, incredulous, remembers he has a few water bottles in his car and brings her some water.
Instantly, police lights flash.
“Sir, in the navy blazer, put your hands in the air,” an officer says to a confused Mr. David. “You’re under arrest for violation of the Election Integrity Act.” He adds, “It is illegal for anyone in the state of Georgia to provide food or water to voters in line in the polls.”
“What?” exclaims Mr. David as the officers lead him away, gripping his arms. “That’s barbaric, what kind of law, are you serious?”
The episode ends with a mug shot of Mr. David, copping a glare and tan reminiscent of former President Donald J. Trump in the photo taken after he was booked in Georgia in August.
Violating the food and water ban in Georgia is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000, though it is unlikely that someone who ran afoul of that provision would be taken away in a police car. (Campaigning within the zone, otherwise known as “electioneering,” would be a different story.)
