Carolyn Cosby says she'll run for County Commission Chair

Christian dominionist and anti-gay demagogue Carolyn Cosby has announced that she will run as an Independent candidate for the County Commision Chair position.  This will require almost 7,000 signatures to get ballot access.  We suppose since she pulled in almost 40,000 signatures statewide for her unregistered and likely illegal committee to purportedly "nullify" Obamacare, she thinks she can pull in 7,000 signatures in Cherokee.

It's hard to say around here.  There are many sociopaths in Cherokee county, and they tend to vote for people just like them.

UPDATE:  One reader asked:  "If Cosby owes ethics fines to the state of Georgia, how can she run for office?"  ANSWER:  Cosby does not yet owe fines, as the case has not been decided, due to the incompetence and gross understaffing at the state "ethics" commission, or what seems to pass for one.

UPDATE 2:  We've seen threats that if a Republican officer provides support to the independent Cosby, they may be removed from their office or thrown out of the party. 

UPDATE 3:  Cosby's been seen soliciting signatures at the Canton Post Office, which it appears is a federal offense.  No idea of the status or if law enforcement was involved.

Election Reflection

It would seem that the Cherokee demagogues have taken a hit in local elections.  They were summarily rejected in all local Board of Education races, and beat back a challenge to the chair position for the county commission.  There was one turnover so far on the commission - Harry Johnston was beat by newcomer Steve West.  One runoff is pending for the commission district 4; one of the two candidates is certifiable.

There will be a runoff in State House District 23, between the education candidate and the religion candidate.  This will be a telling race; they have tossed libertarian Sam Moore out.

Probably the most chilling race is for U.S. House Rep. for Congressional District 11.  Theocrat Barry Loudermilk faces off against a returning Bob Barr.  While Loudermilk will likely be just as ineffective and bumbling a legislator at the federal level, Barr, as repellent as we believe him to be, is certainly the better politician and has something to show in his resume.

Cosby's independent committee

To attack Ahrens and Johnston, our resident anti-gay marauder and Christian reconstructionist Carolyn Cosby, has created a state Independent Committee:

http://media.ethics.ga.gov/search/Campaign/Campaign_Name.aspx?NameID=21496&FilerID=NC2014000026&Type=committee

We've heard that she's sending out lots of nasty flyers.  Don't think for a minute that Cherokee politics has changed.

Found one flyer.  UPDATE:  This one is for the unregistered Canton T.E.A. Party, and illegally endorses candidates.
