The Georgia 6th district special election for Price’s vacant House seat just gets better and better and best:
Georgia Dem: No issue I don’t live in district
Democrat Jon Ossoff dismissed concerns Tuesday over the fact that he doesn’t live in the Georgia congressional district in which he’s running for a House seat.
As near as I can make out in Georgia law, to get on the ballot, one must file an affidavit stating that one lives in the district and is eligible to vote in the election in which he intends to run. I don’t see an exception for “grew up in this district”.
Did he lie on the affidavit? Was he improperly allowed on the ballot in knowing violation of the law? Am I missing something?
Shoot, with all this stupidity going on, “Equipment stolen days before special election; Sec. of State: ‘Unacceptable’” is barely worth a comment. Speculation that ranges from “dumbass stole it to pawn,” to “Dems meant to add (probably Bartow County) names to the registry,” to “someone wanted to close a polling station to claim disenfranchisement.” Who the fuck knows?
