Morning Reads for Tuesday, February 2

Good morning! That’s right, woodchuck chuckers! It’s Groundhog Day! I’ll never forget Groundhog Day 1983, since that’s the morning when my third sister was born. She’s an ARNP on the Brain Tumor team at Seattle Children’s Hospital. We’re all very proud!

    • I’m pretty sure they mostly just want to make it harder for Democrats to vote. Those other folks are just collateral damage. Surely this plan will work out well for the GAGOP! Just like Kelly Loeffler’s candidacy went totally, exactly, according to plan! Trust the process!
  • Issues with the unemployment claims backlog at the Georgia Department of Labor may jeopardize Georgia’s AAA bond rating, the jewel in our state’s economic crown.
  • GAGOP kind of obsessed with Stacey Abrams running for Governor in 2022 (not saying they don’t have their reasons; but they are indeed obsessed.)
  • Senate GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell pronounces Georgia’s own MTG as a “Cancer” on the GOP. (He’s not wrong.)
  • An in-depth look at how COVID-19 is impacting the 2021 Legislative Session, including details on its long-term impact on one of my colleagues, a paramedic who served on the front lines of the fighting the virus in his hometown.
  • There’s no reprieve in sight for DPH employees hoping for a break in the next few months.
  • What’s next for the 32 out of 33 GSP troopers who were fired following a cheating scandal last year.
