Georgia Democrat Lawmaker Resigns Amidst Partisan Pressure After Endorsing Trump’s Re-Election

Georgia state representative Vernon Jones has resigned.

Georgia state representative Vernon Jones of Lithonia is leaving his post after receiving a great deal of partisan backlash for endorsing President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

“Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation,” Jones said in a statement announcing his resignation. “Someone else can occupy that suite. Therefore, I intend not to complete my term effective April 22, 2020.”

Even though he is leaving the state legislature, Jones has no intention of leaving his party. He will instead try to talk sense into a Democrat Party that is growing more openly anti-American and communistic.

“I don’t plan to leave the Democratic Party because somebody’s got to be in there to hold them accountable —hold them accountable to how they are treating black people (and) root out the bigotry,” Jones told The Rashad Richey Morning Show right after he announced his resignation on Wednesday.

Richey was not happy with Jones and the interview ended abruptly. “Hang up on this clown, please,” the enraged host said.

Georgia Democrat leaders lined up to castigate Jones after he left the plantation last week, which set the stage for his resignation.

“We are going to take every step we can under our bylaws,” said John Jackson, the DeKalb County Democrat party chair, vowing to punish Jones for thinking for himself.

“We do not stand for President Trump. It’s Jones’ right to vote for who he wants, but when you get elected as a Democrat, you’re a part of the party leadership,” he added.

“He was never a Democrat but is gaming the system to win. He’s a wolf in sheep’s skin,” said Adrienne White, the Georgia Democrat Party’s vice-chair for recruitment, in a social media post.

“No supporter of a racist president who is actively trying to suppress the votes of eligible Americans will receive the backing of Fair Fight,” said spokesman Seth Bringman, who leads Stacey Abrams’ political organizing group Fair Fight.

Despite the fury from Democrats, Jones has not reversed his support for the president. He continues to advocate for Trump and his policies that have improved the black community.

“Let me be clear about one thing: I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me,” he said. “But one would say, ‘Why would a black man support Donald Trump?’ I would reverse that. Why wouldn’t a black man support Donald Trump?”

Although he may no longer be in office, Jones will continue to help other black Democrats find their way off the plantation and rally them in favor of President Trump heading into this year’s election.

Hackers Stole $2.3 MILLION from Wisconsin GOP, FBI Investigating

That’s a lot of dough.

Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Andrew Hitt has said that hackers stole $2.3 million from his party’s federal account, according to an AP report.

Hitt also said that the FBI is currently investigating the hack, which appears to be a stand-alone incident rather than part of a coordinated hit on other state GOPs.

The money stolen was for already-completed services. “Our operation is running at full capacity,” said Hitt.

So how did the hackers do it? They “manipulated invoices from four vendors who were being paid for direct mail for Trump’s reelection efforts as well as for pro-Trump material such as hats to be handed out to supporters.”

Wisconsin is one of several battleground states considered up for grabs by either Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Despite the media touting absurd outlier polls, the Trump campaign is confident that the president can win the Badger State once again.
