Fran Millar’s pro-Georgia Power vote still hurting ratepayers

Photo credit above (AP) Jonathan Grant @Brambleman UPDATE: The Vogtle Voter’s Guide is out: Check and see if your legislator voted to raise your Georgia Power bills $100 a year upfront for building a nuclear power plant that may not get finished. I wrote a post earlier today about a pack of Georgia legislators who are getting antsy about Georgia Power’s Plant Vogtle and they want cost caps,  so they wrote a letter. SB 31: All politics is local You know who didn’t sign the letter? My state senator, but then again, I’ve never thought of him as pro-consumer. In 2009, then-State Rep. Fran Millar voted in favor of SB31, Georgia Power’s infamous enabling legislation that overrode the Public Service Commission in order…

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

Above: Dick Williams on Fox 5 Atlanta’s “Georgia Gang” Jonathan Grant @Brambleman 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,…

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…

Brian Kemp takes credit for keeping Randolph Polls open

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman For the past couple of weeks, the Randolph County Election Board’s plan to close 7 of 9 polling places in the majority black county has been big news not just in Georgia but all over the U.S. and even internationally. The controversy built to a crescendo yesterday with the firing of the elections consultant who came up with this incredibly stupid idea. The Board’s 2-0 vote this morning was anticlimactic, especially since the county attorney had already said, “I would be the most surprised person in Georgia if this passed.” Dead, for this election cycle. Enter stage far-right: Georgia Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, to claim credit for being a champion of democracy. I was the first…

1% of Ossoff donations would fully fund Sally Harrell’s Georgia Senate campaign

Above: Photo by Laurel Cantrell So why don’t we do this? Seriously. If we want to turn Georgia blue in the 2020 presidential election, we need a much better ground game. No Democratic challenger for a legislative seat in the state has a more advanced ground game than Resistance leader Sally Harrell. She just won a landslide victory in the primary and now she squares off against This Guy. Yeah, the one who wants to restrict black voters in favor of “more educated voters.” We have to beat this guy. You can help. DONATE! In 2017, Dems spent $30M on #GA06 and failed. Better strategy: build Dem strength locally: support former #GA06 candidate @sallyharrellga in #GASD40, Georgia's most flippable district. 1% of…
