State of Georgia: Where one man was a Candidate and tally General at the same time!
You know something is off, when the same guy running for governor, also have the power and administer the polls itself. This was Brian Kemp of the Georgia State, who happen to run on the ballot and administer the polls and counting of the polls. If you thought they would be fair or free, think again.
This is state was a Banana Republic yesterday, where people was purged of the voter rolls, where the lack of equipment and disenfranchised voters by the dozens. If I were Brian Kemp, I would have stepped down a long time ago as the state official of the Midterm Elections. As the double play and double role played to his advantage. No matter who had gone against him, he would have put up the guards and ensured victory.
That the Secretary of State Kemp ensured this and made the polls has be a deliberate act. As the state delivered to several poll stations late ballots, other machines with no cords and so on. With this sort of actions. You just know that the game been rigged. There is no joke, there is no laugh, this is the reason why you need foreign Election Observer Missions from EU/AU/ASEAN,USAN and Commonwealth. To secure the legitimacy and also if the elections is credible.
The first stop, should be that the man who is in-charge of the elections shouldn’t be allowed to run in the polls. It doesn’t matter, which party the man represents or align with. It is matter of principals and ethical values. That should matter, if you want to show progress and be a democracy.
This here could be taken out of any questionable election within the last 5 years on other continents, where the Electoral Commission has rigged in favour of the ruling party and made ways to ensure their candidates victory. There is no difference on George State and several banana republic abroad.
Let me say it again, it wouldn’t matter if Mother Theresa, Mahatma Ghandi or Jesus incarnated raced against Kemp in Georgia, yesterday. Because, he could sway, gerrymandering and secure the ballots in his favour. By securing the lack of polling stations is certain districts and also ensure that his base was covered. That is clearly the memo from yesterday too. As there was enough signs of foul play to be heard off.
I wish it was differently and a fair fight, but when your racing against the guy, whose running the show. It is bound to fail. Peace.
