GOP Movement Afoot in Georgia to Censure Brian Kemp, Geoff Duncan, and Brad Raffensperger


Republican officials in two Georgia counties this week formally censured Gov. Brian Kemp, Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on the grounds that they betrayed former U.S. President Donald Trump last November.

Conservative activist Debbie Dooley told The Georgia Star News Wednesday that the GOP pushback against those three Georgia officials has only just begun.  

GOP officials in Whitfield and Murray counties have already censured the three state Republicans.

“I am encouraging people to fight. The grassroots Trump supporters in Georgia are angry, and folks are underestimating the anger that’s out there,” Dooley said, adding Georgia Republicans’ loyalties lie solidly with the 45th president.

“They are angry with Kemp. They are angry at what happened with Donald Trump, and a lot of new folks are showing up to make sure that the Georgia Republican Party stays the party of Donald Trump.”

Dooley said she’s focused on this fight since February and encouraged Trump supporters statewide to show up at mass precinct GOP meetings — especially now as GOP activists prepare for county conventions scheduled for Saturday.

Dooley said Georgia has between 130 to 140 organizations at the county level.

Dooley said she doesn’t expect all of the counties will pass censure resolutions.

“My email list doesn’t go to everybody,” Dooley said.

If we can get six or seven [resolutions] passed against Kemp with the reach I have at the GOP meetings [then] that would be huge to do that against a sitting governor.”

As The Star News reported in November, state legislators pushed Kemp to call a special legislative session before the January U.S. Senate runoff elections. The special session did not happen. Had such a special session occurred then state legislators would likely have addressed the appointed presidential electors and the implementation of laws limiting voter fraud in the general election runoff.

As reported in December, Kemp would not use his authority to change the date of the state’s two U.S. Senate elections from January 5 to February 1 of this year. Moving back the date might have given members of the Georgia General Assembly additional time to coordinate and develop ways to prevent potential election fraud. Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated incumbent U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and incumbent U.S. Sen. David Perdue, respectively.

As The Star News reported last month, Duncan (R-Cumming) told a nationally-televised audience  that his fellow Republicans should move past Trump and forget passing certain election reform bills.

Duncan said this on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Also as reported last month, a Georgia Secretary of State official under Raffensperger’s supervision anonymously sourced a Washington Post story about Trump — a story that people now discredit.

Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs was that anonymous source.

The Post story cited Trump’s phone call late last year with Georgia Secretary of State Chief Investigator Frances Watson. During that call, Trump urged Watson to look for fraudulent mail-in ballots in Fulton County. The paper said Trump’s conduct and words — which the paper now admits it took out of context — constituted criminal behavior.

Writers at The Post, upon discovering new evidence, this week corrected their story.

Dooley said Wednesday that she and others “are going after people that we think betrayed Trump and turned their back on him.”

“We are coming for you,” Dooley warned.

“We are going to send a message.”

    The Globalist Only Party can go to Hades. They are corrupt liars who backstab their supporters every time. I will NEVER support the traitors again. The GOP has lost me forever. Only a complete and total collapse can save our Country.

  2. John Walters

    Keep the heat on. Keep up the pressure. CORNER THESE irresponsible fakes. THEN CHECK THEIR AND THEIR relatives bank accounts. INCLUDE SILVER the bespectacled liar in the investigation. RATSTINKBERGER should go to for lying SEVEN TIMES in his amicus brief trying to INFLUENCE THE JUDGES decision concerning ballot images, or the real ballots. THIS IS A SECOND DEGREE CONTEMPT OF COURT CHARGE, and if the judge doesnt rule for the original ballots to be inspected, AND NOT THE IMAGES, Then the whole world will know how is probably corrupt. Not only Georgia, and probably 2/3’s of the U.S., But most of the free world is watching. I DONT THINK THESE THREE REALIZE HOW BIG THIS IS. They have gotten away with so much in the past, THEY THINK THIS WILL GO AWAY. IT WILL NOT.

    I know several folks who believe that David Perdue won over 50% of the vote in the November election.
    We do need to clean out the executive branch at the state level.

  4. Christine Mukai

    Not only did they betray the President of the United States, but they also betrayed 80M+ Americans!

    The voters of Georgia were betrayed. I personally attempted to reach out to Governor Kemp and was never able to get through to him. Ratburger never responded, Georgia voters need to clean house! Both me and my husband sent emails to Kemp during the shut down of the pandemic. He was encouraging people to get out and visit the State parks. We happen to live in a county with state parks and we begged him to shut them down and keep folks out of our geriatric county of mostly elderly. They brought Covid cases in and wiped out our few small grocery stores of necessities. He never responded to us. He calls himself representing Georgians!
