Meanwhile The Debbil Goes Down To Georgia…

Hair Füror (H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D)

2020 was another goat rodeo free of voting fraud (as proven by 60+ law suits filed by Hair Füror, all thrown out for lack of merit), but the Coup Klux Klan (the party of law and order!)  is going all-in on punishing Georgeduh’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, for, you know, following the law and not following Hair Füror’s plan to overthrow democracy.

“He’s toast,” said Jay Williams, a Georgia-based Republican strategist. “I don’t know that there’s a single elected official who would put their neck out for Brad Raffensperger right now.”

…Jason Shepherd, the chair of the Republican Party in Cobb County, Georgia, said he has friends who are “completely uninvolved in politics” who tell him “there is no way they are going to vote to reelect Raffensperger.”

“I don’t want to say there’s zero chance, but at this point right now, it’s nearly impossible to find anyone in the party who supports the reelection of [Raffensperger],” he said.

OK, sure a couple of wingnuts telling anecdotes…

Earlier this week, Rep. Jody Hice, a defender of Trump’s effort to overturn the election, announced he’s running with Trump’s endorsement to unseat Raffensperger. And the Georgia Republican Party isn’t exactly sitting on the sidelines…

Closer to home, Raffensperger failed this past weekend to get Republicans in his own precinct to elect him as a delegate to his county’s upcoming Republican Party convention, said Stewart Bragg, executive director of the Georgia Republican Party. After Raffensperger wrote a letter asking to be elected, no one at the precinct meeting moved to nominate him, Bragg said.

OK, so they are holding a grudge, it’s not exactly like You’re Fired’ing him, now is it?

Raffensperger’s official responsibilities havealso been targeted by Republicans in the state. On Thursday, the Republican-controlled state legislature passed a law, signed by Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, thatremoves the secretary of state as the state election board chair — to be replaced by a person approved by the state legislature.

The law, in effect, hands control of the five-person board over to the state legislature: Two other members on the board are picked by the respective legislative chambers. The law also gives the state election board the ability to suspend county election officials, who are replaced by an individual picked by the board.

Oh.

The Republicans have gone full-on, bug-eff nutty; it really is a cargo cult devoted to the mango-hued shitgibbon. Anyone who remains in that Republican Party seriously needs to examine themselves.

  1. I think this really has nothing that much to do with LDN, to be honest, I think he’s just the neoconfederates stalking horse for Jim Crow II: GQP Boogaloo

    Which is exactly what this bill is.

    Hope Ol “Strikes and Balls” Roberts is happy for shivving the Voting Rights Act and leaving it to die in an alley.

      Hope all those people who couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Al Gore in 2000 or HRC in 2016 are happy, too. We could conceivably have had eight Democratic Justices on the Supreme Joke now.

      Thanks a fucking heap, Purity Ponies.

  2. Tell me the reason Georgia Republicans made it illegal to give water to people standing in line to vote? Why the GQP wants to eliminate Sunday voting and reduce weekend, absentee, and mail-in voting? Why conservatives oppose automatic voter registration and making Election Day a national holiday? Why they accept NRA cards as valid voter ID but not student ID? Why they keep lying about mass voter fraud?

    Answer: because Trump conservatives are evil traitors, racists, and liars who hate America and hate democracy, and who want fewer Americans to vote because conservatives know they and their garbage QAnon supremacist cult is unpopular and on borrowed time. Disgusting, anti-American, and pathetic.

      They are also objectively pro-Russian, since Putin’s Russia uses today’s non-Russian white supremacist parties as mere tools of Russian imperialism (or at least hegemonism), just as non-Russian Communist parties quickly were converted into mere tools of Russian imperialism.

    Note to Georgia QOP: It’s an election. With candidates. One of whom will be – a DEMOCRAT!
    A Democrat lost to Brad Raffensperger by 50-some thousand in 2018.
    Like 2020, that will not happen in 2022.
    You may well see a Democrat as Secretary of State.
    And as Governor! Wouldn’t that be something!
