They had a bit of a “birther” issue in Forsyth County recently when it turned out that none of the three Republican candidates for sheriff bothered to submit birth certificates or high-school diplomas to party officials during the qualifying period. The Republican Party went ahead and qualified them, anyway.
County elections officials have been working to straighten the mess out and say that the issue has been cleared up after all three men submitted the necessary documentation.
Any voter in the county has until June 8 to file a challenge to the candidacies of Lauren McDonald, Duane Piper and incumbent Ted Paxton.
There may be no further repercussions, however, since no Democrat qualified to run for sheriff in Forsyth, Georgia’s most staunchly Republican county.
