The Democratic Party of Georgia is trying to raise funds for the legal fight against the challenge to the placement of President Barack Obama’s name on the ballot here in Georgia.
Party Vice Chair Nikema Williams says the Democratic Party has to defend against five lawsuits filed by Republicans.
“They’re violating Democrats’ first amendment rights to name whoever they want to the ballot,” Williams tells WGST.
The efforts to remove Obama’s name are based on the challengers’ view that the president is not a natural born citizen of the U.S.
1st amendment rights? Hmm…I figured you had to qualify as a candidate by the laws of that state. If it’s a free speech issue, then maybe the Democrats should consider putting Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, or Basil Marceaux.com as well. At least that would give Democrats in Georgia a choice and maybe a laugh or two.
