The Supreme Court of Georgia slammed local officials in Douglas County contesting for the seat of the chief magistrate judge.
The Justice, Charles J. Bethel, slammed the County’s government on Tuesday as he said they were playing games with the candidate qualifying process. The Douglas Country government had also overturned a lower court’s decision to remove a democratic candidate from the ballot as he was deemed unfit for office.
The Justice’s comments came on Tuesday during an argument between attorney Jonathan Nussbaum, the County’s Board of Elections representative, and Milton Kidd, the County’s Election Director. Both parties were arguing about Democrat Ryan Williams’s placement on the November ballot.
