Is Dick Williams hurt because Sally Harrell won’t buy ads in The Crier?

Above: Dick Williams on Fox 5 Atlanta’s “Georgia Gang” Hoover Republican says what? I met Dick Williams in the 1980s, when he was a columnist for the Atlanta newspaper and I was spokesman for the Georgia Public Service Commission. In the years since, I would sometimes watch his political show, “The Georgia Gang,” but I quit because life is short and the show was spiraling downward into unrelenting horribleness. In preparing to write this post, I pulled up the most recent episode on YouTube and watched long enough to see Williams rail against the New Deal. Williams also publishes The Crier, a weekly newspaper in Dunwoody, and all pretense of honest journalist aside, he’s covering Georgia’s hottest Senate race, between Republican Sen.…

DeKalb Board of Elections sets up early voting, goes into sketchy executive session

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Big numbers During discussion, Executive Director Erica Hamilton said that the DeKalb Board of Elections has about 40,000 voter registration applications pending and is receiving absentee ballot requests at the rate of “about 500 a day.” Board Chairman Samuel Tillman called that “a good thing” because it would help alleviate lines at the polls on election day. Not sure how staff (there are only 15 or 16 full-timers) feels about that. Hamilton also said the Board will begin mailing out absentee ballots on Sept. 18. Early Voting set The Board rubber-stamped (4-0) a staff proposal setting up early voting for the Nov. 6 General Election, and it’s a slight improvement over the one for the primary. It’s the same…

Georgia GOP House candidate Ellen Diehl: “Understanding Islam—If you’re not Islamic, they want to kill you”

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman In case you missed it, see Raw Diehl of the Day #1: Ellen Diehl and the global witches’ coven Raw Diehl of the Day #2 I’m posting videos that Georgia House District 81 candidate and ardent Trump fan Ellen Diehl deleted from her YouTube channel after I published a blog post about them and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution picked up on the story. I’m looking through them again, and this one … is interesting. Posted on Wed. May 31, 2017, it contains a drifting riff about Donald Trump and Russia. Spoiler alert: It didn’t happen! (Note: Today, Trump campaign aide Georga Papadopoulos was sentenced after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. His drunken bragging about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton is…

Georgia GOP House candidate Ellen Diehl and the global witches’ coven

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Raw Diehl of the Day #1 This isn’t one of her greatest hits, but since she deleted them, we’re gonna play ’em all! Choice Cuts (at 1:24) “Then later, Zeresh says to her husband Haman, ‘You better stop trying to go against Mordecai because God is with him, it will be fatal to continue opposing him. So, the left, it will be fatal for them to continue opposing Donald Trump. I mean it. I’m so, so, so, so serious.” (at 2:20) In her prayer from protection for Donald Trump and his administration, Diehl adds, “That we would pray protection over ourselves against this nnNnnnnNnnnn (makes gesture) global witches’ coven that is trying to create pandemonium and wreak havoc on…

Raw Diehl: Anti-Muslim Trumper ditches extreme rhetoric in race against Georgia Rep. Scott Holcomb

Update: After the Atlanta Journal Constitution linked to this post and published an excerpt in The Jolt (last item)  those YouTube videos were deleted. Sad! But here’s the one I originally posted (see description later in blog post) as an MP4 file:   Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Question: If you’re a proud deplorable who believes—among other things—that Barack Obama is a corrupt Muslim terrorist with a fat-assed ugly wife, how do you campaign against a popular Democratic incumbent in a state House District where Trump received only 35 percent of the vote? By cutting the crazy talk? Sounds like a plan. Just one problem: the videos. All about the Donald “I was a huge Trump supporter,” Ellen Diehl said in one of her…
