Vernon Jones isn’t happy with my coverage of him. Here’s some more.

Latest news: Georgia AME Bishop Reginald Jackson, leader in movement to pass hate crimes bill, endorses former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson for Senate: “Tomlinson possesses integrity, empathy, courage, and a heart for the people.” Read story here. If he isn’t eligible to run in District 91, how can he keep his House seat? Did Jones duck the issue when he quit the race? Jonathan Grant @Brambleman So this happened. I just got a comment on most recent post about Rep. Vernon Jones from the man himself. In the comment section of “Man overboard! In midst of residence challenge, Georgia Rep. Vernon Jones jumps to Trump,“ Jones wrote: To the author of this fake news, there are So many errors in your story.…

Update: Trump backers denounce Deep State conspiracy after rally buses cancelled for nonpayment

UPDATE: Trump supporters denounce Deep State Conspiracy after “Women for America First” DC rally buses (including one from Atlanta) cancelled for nonpayment.  From The Daily Beast: A couple hundred Donald Trump fans rallied outside Congress on Thursday for the “March for Trump,” an event meant to oppose House Democrats’ impeachment investigation. According to organizers, though, there would have been hundreds more people shouting “stop the coup” in Washington’s streets if not for a liberal plot against their buses. That’s because, as would-be rally attendees gathered across the East Coast for the US Coachways buses that the organizer had promised would take them to Washington, those buses never showed. The no-shows provoked a wave of anger, accusations that the “deep state” had colluded to…

GOP incumbent stinks so bad, Tea Party leader endorses Democrat in Georgia PSC runoff

Early voting is underway in Georgia’s statewide runoffs for Secretary of State and Public Service Commission Post 3. Both agencies have suffered from a decade of misrule. It’s our last chance to restore some balance to state government. It’s so out of whack that even conservatives and Libertarians supporting Democrats in these races. The Latest: This comes on the heels of Libertarian PSC candidate Ryan Graham’s announcement that he’s voting for Democrat Lindy Miller, as well. In announcing her decision, Debbie Dooley notes the recent revelation that Georgia Power allies are pumping $750,000 into the race to protect their investment in a bought-off commissioner. And now it’s up to $1 million. From this morning’s AJC Jolt:  Debbie Dooley, a co-founder of the…

Sen. David Perdue gets owned on Twitter

Again, actually. Or usually. Because David Perdue is bad at twitter, which is to be expected, since his message stinks. Sure, it’s probably some clueless staff member pumping out the swamp bilge we’ve come to expect from the junior senator from Georgia’s account. They’re often horrible, hypocritical and sycophantic to President Trump, because, after all Perdue is POTUS’s favorite senator, and you’ve got to be excruciatingly bad to earn that title. Usually Perdue’s tweets are hard ratio’d  because people really, really don’t like him and his tweets are stupid. While Sen. Johnny Isakson has earned a great deal of goodwill from people in his home state (he’s actually held town halls recently and takes live questions from voters in his tele-Town Halls),…
