Meet the Georgia county commisioner who called John Lewis a "racist pig"

According to the Atlantic Journal Constitution,

One of the highest elected officials in one of Georgia’s most diverse counties waded into controversial territory over the weekend when he wrote a Facebook post calling U.S. Rep. John Lewis – a Civil Rights legend already locked in a war of words with president-elect Donald Trump – a “racist pig.”

Here's the text of the deleted Facebook from an AJC screen grab of the now private account:

"John Lewis is a racist pig. There ain’t one political pundit that didn’t say on November 9 that this would be Demonrats EXACT response to Trump winning. Like I heard Rush, I believe say, Demonrats DO NOT live in reality. They believe they were right and THE REAL VOTES were wrong. What a bunch of idiots."



Paul Krugman is on fire today.

(Strangely, they don’t say this about attacks on Democratic presidents.) But patriotism means standing up for your country’s values, not pledging personal allegiance to Dear Leader".

"So let’s be thankful that John Lewis had the courage to speak out. It was the patriotic, heroic thing to do. And America needs that kind of heroism, now more than ever."

Russia Could Decriminalize Domestic Violence

"A bill introduced by an ultra-conservative Russian lawmaker in August that decriminalizes domestic violence just passed its first reading in Russian parliament, according to the Moscow Times. Only one member of parliament voted against the bill, while 368 voted in favor of it. If the bill passes, it would remove the charge of “battery within families” from Russia’s criminal code, meaning it would be categorized as an administrative offense, and victims could not press criminal charges."
