Hmm, Teri Anulewicz vs. Chuck Norris. Epic!

No mention of Jen Jordan’s ridiculously over sized fake eye lashes? Those alone could give a resounding beat down to Senator Perdue.

What do fake eye lashes have to do with what a person says?

I imagine it was part of the “stage makeup” that helps define features when speaking in front of a group, large lights, etc.

I use heavier makeup than normal when I have a public speaking engagement.

I find false eyelashes far less disturbing than, say, a bright orange skin tone and white bags under one’s eyes from the sunlamp/spray tan goggles.

This comment would have been much better without the cheap shot at you know who.

I beg to differ. Cap’n Tinyhands ran for office and serves mocking women based on appearance.

Bunch of deep state leftists in the intel community/ FBI and Obama DOJ having to change their britches after AG Barr’s testimony this morning.

Of course, anyone paying attention the last couple of years, that is, receiving their news from outside the Pravdaesque mainstream fake news media, already knew all this. But very happy to see this official investigation of the genesis of this sham.

LOL at Capt. Insecurity up here thinking that the cops that comprise the FBI are “leftists.”

Andy McCabe on line one. Or is that Peter Strzok?

A longtime registered Republican. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III? He was a registered Republican when GOP President George W. Bush appointed him as FBI director, and he still was as of 2017. James B. Comey? A longtime registered Republican before testifying in 2016 that he no longer was. McCabe? As CNN reported recently, he voted in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. … This is also somewhat the case with Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was demoted for writing Trump-bashing text messages. While Strzok’s comments in those texts were clearly and frequently anti-Trump, he also derided Democratic… Read more »

It’s testimony to the radicalization of the right.

When your candidate lacks the policy chops to run on the issues, resort to “lol own the libz” tactics.

I think the residency issue resonates easily. It could also be the basis of a pre-election lawsuit challenging her residency qualification.

Nope, can’t challenge pre-election. Per the Annotated Constitution, the precedent is set that residency must be established prior to being sworn in, not prior to election. See p.116

Hey, I’m no expert in this particular area, and I note a correction below, but I don’t think you’re entirely on point here. First, I tend to think that her residency could be challenged for the term she is serving right now, and it very well may be. If not, she could certainly be challenged during the next cycle- but yes, it appears that she has to win during that cycle in order to be challenged. That said, the residency requirement is to be fulfilled upon the date of election. Even according to the document you provided, pertinent excerpt below:… Read more »

Thanks for the clarification. The Annotated Constitution seems to be using shorthand, but residency issues have been tested as well.
However, if the GA GOP thought this was a winning position, they would have already filed a lawsuit against her immediately upon Rep. McBath taking the oath of office on January 3rd. They’re only using this in the Court of Public Opinion.

Relevant precedents (Most relevant is Sec. 437):
“437. The Senate considered qualified a Senator who, being a citizen of the United States, had been an inhabitant of the State from which he was appointed for less than a year.”

Yeah, my thought was that the new info about Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s decision may impel some to legal action.
But it will certainly be used politically.

Just came across this:

I have to say, I didn’t know this consent decree existed, and on first glance, find it a bit odd that it has lasted so long. A little more research might enlighten.
