BREAKING: 11th Circuit allows #Georgia to hold public service commission (PSC) elections using a system that a lower court ruled harms Black voters and violates the Voting Rights Act. Georgia has not had a PSC election since 2020 due to ongoing litigation.

’s Lieutenant Governor to Face Inquiry for Role as Fake Elector

, the district attorney of Fulton County, Ga., had been disqualified from pursuing the case against Lt. Gov. Burt Jones, but another prosecutor said he would now take it over.”

"Mr. Jones has since defended those actions.

“I mean, what people were doing — and this isn’t something that’s new — people were asking questions about elections,” he said in a September 2023 interview."

You know, just like people went into the Capitol for sight seeing on Jan. 6

@GottaLaff Little news about the GOP super-majority GA legislation, signed by Gov. Kemp, that made the 6-week heartbeat abortion ban law some time ago. They gerrymandered the state's voter districts again with the courts' approval and passed an insane law allowing GOP to get rid of elected Dem. prosecutors.

This is what MAGA states use to force "far-left prosecutors" to submit to GOP extremist, sexist, racist laws.

If you know someone who needs medical care but cannot pay for it, look into the Financial Assistance Policy of your local medical providers. For instance, Emory will provide full "emergency and medically necessary" care for a family of 2 with under $25k of income (in addition to other situations as well).
https://www.emoryhealthcare.org/-/media/Project/EH/Emory/ui/insurance/ehc-financial-assistance-policy.pdf

This financial assistance is supported by the Georgia Indigent Care Trust Fund.
https://dch.georgia.gov/providers/provider-types/hospital-providers/indigent-care-trust-fund

The billing office will not necessarily tell you about the availability of financial assistance, nor is this information always clearly posted in the hospital.

A #FultonCounty judge on Thurs denied a motion from #Trump & several of his co-defendants seeking to have the #Georgia #ElectionInterference case thrown out based on #FirstAmendment challenges.

Trump & others had argued, in part, that the Fulton #indictment violated their #1A right to challenge the 2020 presidential election results.

#McAfee: “Even core #PoliticalSpeech addressing matters of public concern is not impenetrable from prosecution if allegedly used to further #criminal activity."
"The State has alleged more than mere expressions of a #political nature. Rather, the #indictment charges the Defendants w/knowingly & willfully making false statements to public officers & knowingly & willfully filing documents containing false stmnts & misrepresentations within the jurisdiction of state depts & agencies.”

#Trump #law

#McAfee also wrote that he was unble to find "any authority that the speech & conduct alleged is #protected #political speech."
The protection afforded specifically by the Petition Clause of the #FirstAmendment -which allows the ability to communicate w/govt ofcls- "does not extend to allegedly #fraudulent petitions.”
"In other words, the #law does not insulate speech allegedly made during fraudulent or #criminal conduct from prosecution under the guise of petitioning the govt," he wrote.

Desperate cowards 🤦🏻‍♀️

“Lawyers for several defendants in the criminal case against and others have been weighing whether to press for a gag order against Atlanta-area prosecutor , especially if efforts to disqualify her fail, sources familiar with the strategy discussions told CNN.”

Via Anna Bower: 1/...

In Fulton County, Mark asks Judge McAfee to hold an evidentiary hearing on his motion to dismiss based on Supremacy Clause immunity.

The request raises the possibility that Meadows could take the stand in for a second time—this time with cameras in the courtroom.

2/ Bower:

You can read Meadows’s reply brief on his motion to dismiss based on Supremacy Clause immunity and request for an evidentiary hearing here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/24528795-meadows-reply-brief-supremacy-clause

One more observation: Meadows has not yet appealed the 11th Circuit’s rejection of his efforts to remove his state criminal case to federal court.

But yesterday’s filing notes that the time for him to file a petition for review with the Supreme Court has not yet expired.

💪🏼“2 weeks after Fulton County DA survived a bid by defense lawyers to have her disqualified from election interference case, she has all but taken over the case personally, focusing intensely on legal strategy and getting her team in fighting form for trial.

In signif move along these lines..Willis has decided to play a leading courtroom role herself in the sprawling conspiracy case against & 14 co-defendants”

I can see why trump is trying to put this DA especially in his rear view! DA Willis seems to be the only sitting law enforcement official who will publicly point the finger at trump as the one who IS (and SHOULD BE) on trial for trying to end our democracy. The indictment by her office was a masterpiece, as was her removal hearing testimony. You GO, DA Willis!
