Right now, it feels like a war is raging in our in-boxes and on social media about President Trump’s indictments. We just learned today that the Trump court proceedings will be televised. Grab the popcorn, it’s not going to end soon.
A 8/24/23 UGA poll surprisingly found that 65% of “liberals” believe that politics played a role in the decision to indict Trump in Georgia (and over 95% of conservatives agree!). Georgians are united in the belief that politics (and not the “rule of law”) guided Fulton County DA, Fani Willis. The US House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee is investigating her for this very reason (Read Jim Jordan’s letter to Fani Willis here.)
There are many other examples of our “two-tiered justice system”:
Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden get a pass for mishandling classified intelligence, and the Biden Justice Department offers the president’s son a sweetheart plea deal on felony misconduct, while Trump gets indicted; Trump gets investigated by a special counsel on the fabricated claim that he is a Russian agent, but the Clinton campaign that fabricated the claim emerges unscathed; more than 1,100 people are charged in connection with the January 6 Capitol riot while the months of Black Lives Matter violence are largely ignored, and so on.Andrew C.

Josh McKoon, the Chairman of the Ga GOP, warns: “The destruction of the notion that prosecutors and law enforcement will perform their duties in spite of, instead of in furtherance of their personal politics is the detonation of an atomic bomb on the foundations of our Republic.”
As an attorney, I am almost speechless…almost.
Georgia, once again, is the center of the political universe.
It reminds me of Georgia from November 2020 through January 5, 2021. Republicans are, once again, on the defensive responding to attacks on our party and on our democratic processes.
We’ve been here before and it didn’t end well for our families or for our county on January 5, 2021.
In the 2020 election cycle, there were 339K Republicans who came out for the November General Election to vote for President Trump but did not come back out for the January 5, 2021, US Senate Runoffs. Many suggested they didn’t vote because they believed the election was rigged and their vote would not count. They were right in one way. Their failure to cast 339K votes meant their votes were not counted and we lost the US Senate.
Dear sisters, let’s not repeat that history. Let’s learn from it.
While the Trump indictments concern us all, we can not be distracted or diverted from our goal of winning the Oval Office in 2024 by encouraging as many Georgia women as possible to VOTE Republican in March and November.
As Winston Churchill would say, “…never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.”
Have the conviction and good sense to join our work at Women Lead Right and we will have VICTORY in 2024!
