THREAD

1.) I was one of thousands of volunteers who worked tirelessly for Jon Ossoff's campaign during the 2017 6th district special election. What was SO frustrating about that loss (aside from the fact that he would have made a amazing congressman) was that the outcome didn't-
2.) - make any sense whatsoever - not with what I'd seen on the ground as a canvasser, not with the number of Democrats I saw streaming into my polling place when I was a poll watcher. I'm not an election integrity expert, but I, like many other Ossoff supporters, were thrilled -
3.) when @MarilynRMarks1 filed a lawsuit challenging the results. And then a few days later #BrianKemp wiped the server clean of data. So many people sacrificed so much during that campaign for someone to be our voice in the House, and now we couldn't even contest the results.
4.) I'm terrified. Simply TERRIFIED that in a gubernatorial race between white nationalist #BrianKemp and the incomparable #StaceyAbrams -- the exact same thing is going to happen. And this time around, it's even less likely we'll have a secure and fair election, because Kemp is-

7.) Read this piece published today in The Guardian featuring @MarilynRMarks1 -- "Marks can’t help thinking back to last year’s special congressional election and everything she’s learned since about the troubling circumstances surrounding it...
8.) ...'I think there is more reason than ever to question the result of that election...Georgia’s system was compromised, and it has not been decontaminated.'" theguardian.com/us-news/2018/a…
9.) We can't afford a Groundhog's Day in #Georgia. We can't afford to have what may have happened in the 2017 6th district special election, repeat for #midterms, when we have DOZENS OF VERY FLIPPABLE DISTRICTS. Aside from demanding #handmarked #paperballots from our both our -
10) counties' Board of Commissioners and Board of Elections (see contact information here: onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?resi…), we must ensure the WIDEST MARGIN POSSIBLE in our Democratic races. Don't just vote, volunteer. Every vote will matter. #gapol END
