Oh Georgia Democrats…your ability to effectively govern and run things is truly remarkable.
Witness the latest example. The Labor Day weekend election of DuBose Porter as chair might be voided.
Former state lawmaker and candidate for governor DuBose Porter, who was elected chairman by the state committee on Aug. 31, confirmed Sunday that a senior advisor to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has put in a request to review the ballots cast.
Porter said the request, made by Reed aide Michael Sterling, has been handed over to the party’s secretary and attorney. One possible objective: An attempt to void the 30 state committee appointments of interim chair Nikema Williams, who assumed temporary leadership of the party upon the resignation of Mike Berlon in June. Voiding those votes could throw into question Porter’s Labor Day weekend election.
