Please don’t vote, part 4

6th District vote: Fulton seeks to extend polling hours; DeKalb and Cobb smooth
Exasperated voters arrived at their typical polling locations only to find them empty. The cause? They’re in the 11th, or 5th, or 4th districts, none of which are on the ballot Tuesday.

Note that this is after a press release was issued explaining that this is only for residents of the 6th district.

No word whether Dimwit candidate Ossoff was one of those turned away.

Please don’t vote, Part 3

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?

Why, bless their hearts*

There’s going to be a Black Lives Matter “inspired” protest in “downtown” Saint Marys, Georgia on Saturday, organized by a guy who doesn’t live there, inspired by stuff that didn’t happen there, and supposedly bringing folks from out of state. Yeah, population 17,000 Saint Marys. (And that link is the only online mention of this event I can find.)

We’re talking Georgia, which has at least 700,000 concealed carry licenses. That’s just the ones who want to carry and bothered to get licensed.

Better yet, that’s south Georgia, where you’d be hard-pressed to find a home without a firearm at the ready. Heck, the area supports an NFA dealer despite the small population.

Then there’s the planned route. Those folks won’t take kindly to taunts, slurs, violence, or Molotov cocktails in their residential neighborhoods.

This will be either the politest, calmest, most peaceful BLM protest ever, or the shortest.
