Several state senators for Georgia praised the state of Texas for filing a lawsuit against Georgia on Tuesday.

Sen. Greg Dolezal (R – Cumming), Sen. William Ligon (R – Brunswick), Sen. Brandon Beach (R – Alpharetta), Sen. Burt Jones (R – Jackson), Sen. Jeff Mullis (R – Chickamauga), Sen. Tyler Harper (R – Ocilla), Sen. Blake Tillery (R – Vidalia), Sen. Marty Harbin (R – Tyrone),  Sen. Renee Unterman (R – Buford), Sen. Carden Summers (R –  Cordele), Sen. Bruce Thompson (R – White), Sen. Steve Gooch (R – Dahlonega), Sen. Billy Hickman (R –Statesboro), Sen. Elect Jason Anavitarte (R – Dallas), Sen. Elect Sheila McNeill (R – Brunswick), Sen. Elect Russ Goodman (R – Valdosta) released the following statement:

“We applaud the State of Texas for recognizing that the failure of the State of Georgia to follow its own election laws has violated the Equal Protection Act of the U.S. Constitution. This systemic failure to follow the law has allowed misconduct, fraud, and irregularities throughout the voting process of this state. These failures and other fraudulent activities were brought to light at the hearing held in the Georgia State Senate Judiciary Subcommittee last week. We urge the U.S. Supreme Court to accept this very important case submitted last night by the State of Texas.

Our U.S. Constitution requires us to defend our democratic Republic against all its foes. Article IV, Section 4, of the U.S Constitution guarantees to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government. A Republican Form of Government means a government in which the supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote, and not just vote, but vote knowing that their vote authentically counts so that they can entrust their will to elected officials who will faithfully govern according to law. We are the trustees of the people, and we must secure their vote against all those, both foreign and domestic, who would defraud them of their collective decision at the ballot box.”

    Sen Jeff Mullis. Thank you for standing up. The fight has just begun. There are still a few weeks of trial and trouble ahead. But, you are the man for the job that needs to be done. Bob Coker would applaud you.

    I am ecstatic that you support the TEXAS motion. But I do have an issue. What idiot put the only woman in this group at the bottom of the mug shots and in miniature? Don’t you get today’s world? It was NEVER morally acceptable, but today it is reprehensible to much of America. Yes, she’s “elect”, not holding the office yet, but so is at least one guy who has a full size picture. Wake up!

    Mark, I put her photo down there. And in your glory of name calling (ironically, of a woman which I assume is also ‘NEVER morally acceptable’), you failed to recognize that that is Renee Unterman, who is not a Senator-elect, but a Senator who did not run again because she ran for Congress and lost.
    None of the Senator-elects are pictured, all of the men in the pictures are currently serving, so that is a second point on which you are mistaken in your outrage. Perhaps circle back and re-format your rant with some accurate points 🙂

    Tanya – because it’s a list of State Senators. Loeffler and Perdue are US Senators & Vernon is a state rep.

    Loeffler & Perdue did comment though: https://allongeorgia.com/georgia-state-politics/loeffler-perdue-laud-lawsuit-against-georgia-by-texas-attorney-general/

    Nobody in Georgia should forget that these so-called representatives betrayed the people of Georgia, tried to steal our democratic rights, and violated their oath to defend the constitution, all to stroke trumps’s fragile ego. They should be disqualified from public service.
