Georgia’s Republican civil war just got a lot messier.

A new schism — this one between MAGA forces — is taking shape, further threatening GOP unity in advance of the Jan. 5 runoffs for the state’s two Senate seats.

6. Just sit back and let them bitch it out.....

Register new voters and those who've just turned 18.

Make sure the current democratic electorate can do what they did four weeks ago and that's to turn Georgia blue...

I believe that at least 1,000,000 have requested early ballots.

I think these MAGAts take direction more from their church than from the latest Trump attorney, but hey, I've been wrong before, many times before.

16. In Linwood, though, they get both!

According to a lawsuit filed in August by three lawyers who worked with him, Wood in late 2019 began acting erratically, making “abusive, incoherent phone calls, voicemails, texts, and emails ... All of these erratic communications have a few things in common: most of these emails profess that God or the Almighty was commanding his actions; many were stating his refusal to pay the Plaintiffs ‘one thin dime;’ and virtually all were abusive.”

The lawsuit alleges Wood’s behavior “continued to deteriorate, including assault and battery” on two of them, though “there was essentially no reason whatsoever for the attack, and Defendant Wood later acknowledged and apologized for this violence.”

Wood, however, denied the claims, stating on Twitter that it was a “shakedown effort.”

“These young lawyers have chosen to willingly engage in a disgraceful and unprofessional effort to publicly attack me by including irrelevant, out-of-context private messages I sent to them in the midst of a difficult time in my personal life arising primarily from my family’s reaction to my faith in Jesus Christ," Wood wrote.


Not only will Linwood appear in court for Dear Leader, it looks like he'll also smite his enemies! (I'd love to know more about his family's reaction. Maybe he smote them, too.)

33. that's really interesting

I recall Lin Wood from when he represented Jon Benet Ramsey's brother after he claimed CBS misrepresented him in a true crime show. I think Wood wanted $750 million, which is a ludicrous amount. I recall seeing the documentary.

He thinks of himself as a "celebrity attorney."

I saw him speaking, too, and recall how unhinged I thought he was.

As I understand it, even he is too crazy for Trump, kinda' like Sidney Powell.

22. OMG, the 'One of the nuttier things I've seen' line comes from Newt Gingrich!

The king of nuttiness himself!

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who helped build the modern Republican Party in Georgia, theorized the lawyers were whipping up conservatives because “they understand that if they’re out there saying more and more radical things, they’ll get more publicity.”

He should know. He made that the Republican party's brand.

God, if I didn't already want Dem wins, I'd root for it just to watch Newt drown in the flood of his own batshit.

23. It shows in stark relieft just how far the GOP has unravelled in this putrid period in history.

What have they ALWAYS been known for? Getting in lockstep and acting in unison, especially when it came time to lock and load.

If nothing else comes of it, at minimum it shows that the rank and file, at least, are not a juggernaut with linked arms. Wait will demographics start REALLY catching up with them and watch them fight like rabid rats in a box that's on fire. It will be glorious.

27. Don't get complacent, GA voters.

I don't think the true right wingers will be distracted and they will vote for Loefller and Purdue in masse. We have to have huge GOTV efforts or we automatically lose. The deck is stacked against us there, don't believe this BS.

36. Exactly correct.

I live in Georgia. Virtually all Republican voters here do not engage in circular firing squads. And they do turn out, over and over and over.

We win when we outnumber them, simple as that. GOTV is everything.
