In Georgia, we have smart politicians…
It had been rumored for a week and on Tuesday some State House Republicans made it official.
Thirty of them signed onto HR 1886, a House Resolution calling for the impeachment of Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker.
“The Attorney General has an obligation to file suit when requested to do so by the Governor,” said Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross), who authored the measure and submitted it to the House on Tuesday.
Hatfield and his 29 GOP allies want Baker removed from office because they claim he violated the Georgia Constitution.
Specifically, Article V, Section III which says, “The Attorney General…shall represent the state…when required by the Governor.”
The Georgia State Constitution, Article V, Section III, Paragraph IV clearly states,
Attorney General; duties. The Attorney General shall act as the legal advisor of the executive department, shall represent the state in the Supreme Court in all capital felonies and in all civil and criminal cases in any court when required by the Governor, and shall perform such other duties as shall be required by law.
The state Constitution is quite clear. Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker took his oath of office and has a legal obligation to represent the state of Georgia at the direction of the Governor. He refuses to do so, therefore he is not performing his duties as defined by the state Constitution. It’s really that simple. Of course, legislators will muck it all up because some of them won’t pay attention to the law and they will vote against his impeachment.
Yes, believe it or not, even though we have some very smart politicians, we also have a few really, really, stupid ones…
Yes. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) who replaced the nutcase known as Cynthia McKinney actually thinks an island (Guam) could actually tip over. TIP OVER. What a freakin’ moron.
