It’s time to rally for Sally! And Lucy! And Stacey!

Let’s hit the streets and GOTV!   Weekend Rallies: Sign up! Election Day Rallies: Sign up!  The Resistance in Georgia was born in the Sixth District, following the election of Donald Trump and the resignation of Rep. Tom Price. We came closer to flipping that Congressional seat than many people thought we could. It wasn’t good enough, though. (And if you’re ready to rally in the Heart of the Resistance now, just sign up!) This year is our chance, with so many races across the board. A New York Times poll being conducted right now shows that Lucy McBath has a clear chance to do what Jon Ossoff couldn’t. Similarly, polls show that Georgia has a chance to step forward and make…

By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman UPDATE: GOP Caves, settles lawsuit and agrees to quit making false claims against Georgia House District 51 candidate Josh McLaurin Today, the Georgia Republican Party settled my libel case against it by promising never again to say I’m “under criminal investigation.” I am grateful to @EvansforGeorgia for helping me hold the GOP accountable for its lies.

The real Diehl: Islamaphobic Georgia House candidate hit with ethics complaint

If all the horribleness surrounding North DeKalb House Candidate Ellen Diehl wasn’t enough, she’s now facing an ethics investigation over her campaign finances. Running against Democratic State Rep. Scott Holcomb in HD81 (Tucker, Northlake, Chamblee, Doraville,  Brookhaven, and a smidge of Gwinnett), Diehl first made a name for herself as a hardcore Trump supporter. She took a talking Trump doll with her when she served as a Trump delegate to the 2016 GOP convention. (She’d had the doll for years, so there’s something going on there, too.) Diehl has tried to paint an image of herself as a mainstream candidate. She. Is. Not. You see, she had this YouTube habit.

Tucker, Georgia: Don’t like KKK recruiting in town? Your GOP House candidate spreads same hate

Media are reporting on a KKK recruiting drive in suburban Tucker: “Help us fight the spread of Islam in our country,” Klan flyers state. The hate group senses an opportunity in North DeKalb, since the GOP is running rabidly Islamaphobic GOP House candidate Ellen Diehl against Democrat Rep. Scott Holcomb, one of the state’s most effective legislators, regardless of party. Diehl has presented herself as a mainstream candidate. She is not. She is a Trump fanatic, a bona fide deplorable, and she made a ton of YouTube videos  because she was loud and proud about it. But once the videos were exposed in the media, she took them down. Fast. Sadly for her, someone made copies. She’s all Trump, all the time, and…
