Democrats Call On Brian Kemp To Oppose Sanctions On Georgia Prosecutor

Why would a Republican listen to a Democrat? If he did publicly oppose sanctions, would that earn him the votes of all these Democrats?

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp called to publicly oppose sanctions against DA in Trump case

A Georgia faith leader representing more than 530 churches is calling upon Gov. Brian Kemp to publicly oppose Republican efforts to remove or discipline Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Willis, a Democrat and the first Black woman to serve in the position, has become a lightning rod for attacks by supporters of former President Donald Trump, who she indicted this month along with 18 others on charges related to an alleged conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Many state and national GOP lawmakers, not to mention Trump himself, have criticized Willis as a “partisan hack” and have proposed launching investigations and pursuing sanctions against her over the case, which marks the fourth indictment against the former president amid his bid to return to the White House.

Willis was out to get Trump. She was campaigning on it. Her whole case seems to rest on prosecuting someone engaged in their 1st Amendment Rights

“We strongly call upon you to make it publicly known that you do not support the calls of those who seek an investigation of (Willis),” Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, head of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Georgia, wrote in a letter sent Friday.

How many of the members vote Republican? 10% or less?

A statement from Kemp would “put to rest this divisive, polarizing, partisan and inflammatory attempt to disrupt our state and its people,” according to Jackson, who notes how Kemp testified to the grand jury in the case and has rejected Trump’s false claims that the presidential contest was stolen in previous public comments.

Kemp and Trump obviously do not get along, but, do they get the notion that this is a battle, that the enemy is the Democratic Party, and slamming each other is not a good thing? Well, Trump has never seemed to get that, never understood Reagan’s 11th Amendment, never understood that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Does Kemp understand? Will he get involved or stay above the fray? Will Trump understand to not slam Kemp?

The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to her on Thursday launching an inquiry into whether she coordinated with federal officials for the indictment of Trump.

The committee, chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, demanded information from Willis regarding any communication she had with the Justice Department, the office of Special Counsel Jack Smith who also indicted Trump and executive branch officials. They set a Sept. 7 deadline to receive correspondence.

It’s funny, for all the Democrats complaining about this, saying the House has no business being involved, well, it’s a real good reason why the federal government shouldn’t be funding all things state, local, and county, which is what gives Jordan authorization to get involved. Your taxes flow to Los Federales then back to things like prosecutor’s offices, giving Los Federales a say in their operations.

    That’s not criticism – it’s merely an accurate description.

      Donald J. Trump, with his orange makeup, “hair of color” cemented in place with Aqua Net, fat hiding suits, 2″ shoe lifts, girly manicures and pedicures and his reliance on “style” over substance is not qualified to be an elected official, at least according to the Constitution.

      That’s not criticism – it’s merely an accurate description.

    Our First Amendment does not mention the right to rebellion and insurrection.

    Mr Trump and his co-conspirators conspired in a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election. He was caught on tape trying to get GA Republican Sec of State Brad Raffensperger to change the results of the election.

    “The people of Georgia are angry, the people in the country are angry,” Trump said. “And there’s nothing wrong with saying, you know, um, that you’ve recalculated.”

    Raffensperger is a Republican who has become a bête noire among Trump supporters for repeatedly saying Biden’s win in his state was fair. In one of a number of parries, he said: “Well, Mr President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.”

    Trump said: “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”

    He insisted: “There’s no way I lost Georgia. There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”

        Oh noes! Thanks. I “accidently” used conspirators, conspired and conspiracy back to back to back, “accidently” overemphasizing the conspiratorial nature of the mobster Fat Donnie‘s conspiracy with his co-conspirators!! I’ll try to be more careful!!

      This is quite easy to solve. And solve legitimately instead of lying. Simply have an audit check everything out independently and then advertise the account if trump won’t admit it if trump lost he has to admit it.

      I don’t understand why leftists are so afraid to allow audits of the elections. It’s been very contentious and in this contest there should be audits. I know that the left controls all the audit facilities and all the courts and all that kind of stuff but if they really cared about “their democracy” they would do audits and see what’s going on. Why is everything so screwed up is the question.

      The only reason they wouldn’t do an audit is because they know that they’ve cheated and an audit would prove that.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        How many audits, recounts, hand recounts and court cases are needed? Youse guys are just blowing smoke re-repeating the same old lies. Trump lost. No one has been able to show otherwise.

        The Arizona Senate brought in the Cyber Ninjas, a Trump supporting elite squad of vote counters and investigators to audit the vote. What did they find?

        State Senate Republicans announced the results of their conspiracy-laden audit of the 2020 presidential election results in September. It concluded that President Joe Biden had won 360 more votes than Maricopa County had awarded him in the official count.

        “Truth is truth. Numbers are numbers,” Arizona Senate President Karen Fann said at a hearing last year on the review of the audit.

        State Senate Republicans hired Cyber Ninjas to conduct an election audit of ballots in Maricopa County, the state’s most populous county, after Biden flipped the state to blue for the first time in decades — beating former President Donald Trump by more than 10,400 votes.

        The AZ GOP said Biden had been cheated out of votes!!! Not Trump.

        A request:

        Mr L’Roy,

        Please do us all a favor and either describe in detail or cite a reference that specifically describes the type of “audit” or “forensic audit” you and yours are talking about, or stop using it as an excuse for Trump losing.

        You’re claiming that poor ol’ Joe Brandon, a decrepit, demented octogenarian hiding in his basement, was able to engineer a stolen election from the vital, brilliant billionaire Trump, even fooling 60 judges and many GOP-linked election officials in several red states, including GA, AZ, PA, MI and WI.

        Put up or shut up.

    Teach is always sad and angry.
    The tightwing has become infested with whiners and victims
    Those soy boys and diesel dykes are so mean !
    Tats why we can’t have nice incandescent light bulbs anymore
    If Fani Willis ran for office on getting” Trump, she must have known that was what the people of yfiton county wanted.
    She easily beat the 6 term incumbent getting about 75% of the vote.

    Professor Reich notes:

    A defiant photograph isn’t “news.” It’s a symbol, an image. Which is exactly what Donald Trump is. He has no political platform, no specific policy agenda, no new ideas, and no plan for what he’ll do if he gets a second term.

    He exists as a symbol for the anger, discontent, bigotry, and vindictiveness he has unleashed in America.

    He is as close as America has come to a fascist leader, who doesn’t want his followers to think or analyze. He wants them only to feel.

    Trump is your retribution for all those uppity, snooty, EV driving, latte sipping, avocado toast eating, NYTs reading, Ivy League worshipping, over-educated atheistic, immigrant worshipping, white-hating, fag/tranny loving libs, blacks, Jews and Muslims.

    But, rather than getting angry, please consider the truth in what the good professor is saying. The GOP (but not the nuGOP – Trump, Jordan, Greene etc) have better choices. America has better choices. Almost any less insane Republican could win against Dark Brandon, but the MAGA-right is bound so tightly to Trump that they would rather risk losing over voting for a better person and candidate. Sad. Trump cares not about you OR the nation. Trump is only for Trump. Ask yourself, would Trump get out of the way for Nikki Haley, Chris Christie or Glenn Youngkin? Why not? Either would be better for America than Trump. Every GOP voter would prefer them to Dark Brandon.

      It’s official. Professor Robert Reich is the shortest adult male on the interwebs.

      Lil StinkyButt (aka Shorty aka Shawty aka No Cents Butt Not Unscented) is second shortest!

    Leftist Kemp is a “Bush Republican! El Rusbo told us 25years ago, “BushRepublicans are DEMOCRATS!”!

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Mr Teach and the MAGAts need to understand that the mobster Fat Donnie cares not one whit about the Republican Party, other Republicans, America the Republic, American democracy, the American people, or anyone or anything other than himself. His modus operandi is to recruit devotees to support HIS bidding for HIMSELF.

    What does the mafioso Fat Donnie give in return? A sense of belonging to a powerful cult AND the promise of an authoritarian pax Americana – a white, Christian, straight homeland just as God wants.
