    GA Dem candidate Ossoff doesn’t live in district!

    GA Dem candidate Ossoff can’t vote for himself — because he doesn’t live in district!


    “Mr. Ossoff, is it true that you cannot vote for yourself?” host Alisyn Camerota asked the Democratic candidate.

    After an awkward silence, Ossoff responded, “Well, I grew up in this district.

    “I grew up in this community. No one knew there was going to be an election coming,” he continued.

    “I’ve been living with Alicia, my girlfriend of 12 years down by Emory University where she’s a full-time medical student.

    “And as soon as she concludes her medical training, I’ll be 10 minutes back up the street into the district where I grew up, but I want to support her and her career and do right by her,” Ossoff said.

    carpetbagger ....
    I thought one had to live in the district they were running to represent
    I guess not ....
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
    - Robert J. Hanlon.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    Nope, just the state:

    Hell, if we can have a President who wasn't technically an American citizen, why not a Representative who's a carpet bagger?
    If diversity were such a strength, why do blacks preach “solidarity”?
