Fewer Georgia voters returned their absentee ballots too late in last year's presidential election, when many of them used drop boxes to avoid the risk of slow mail delivery. Ballot drop boxes won't be available for last-minute voting in future elections. Georgia's new voting law limits drop boxes to early voting locations that close the Friday before election day. Election data obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows that ballot rejections plummeted as a record number of voters, over 1.3 million, cast absentee ballots. The figures were provided by the secretary of state's office in...
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) attacked an Air Force Lt. Colonel on Sunday, telling him that he's a "traitor."
She made the comment after Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) agreed to join the Jan. 6 special select committee as one of the Republicans willing to examine the attack on the U.S. Capitol in a bipartisan way. Greene didn't feel that Kinzinger was right for the job because he already voted to impeach Trump for the Jan. 6 attack.
Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attempted to put two members on the committee who are the biggest firebrands in the caucus. One of the two may also have been involved in the attack.
Greene is independently wealthy from her father's corporation, though it's unclear if she's ever had any real role in the business. She's never served in the American military, much less gone to war. Kinzinger served in both Iraq and Afghanistan after the attacks on the Twin Towers on 9/11. Greene questioned whether the Pentagon was even hit on Sept. 11, 2001.

Americans demand arrest of Michael Flynn after he 'jokes' about assassination in Washington, DC with his new gun
In May, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn joked about a coup to take over the American government. Now he's "joking" about assassination.
When being awarded over the weekend with a new rifle, Flynn told the audience in Yuba, California, "Maybe I'll find someone in Washington, D.C."
Michael Flynn is presented with a rifle as a gift in Yuba, CA, and says that now “maybe I’ll find somebody in Washi… https://t.co/rBd3JtlXvB— Ron Filipkowski (@Ron Filipkowski) 1627224576.0
"I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can't happen here?" someone asked Flynn from the QAnon conference audience as others cheered.
"No reason. I mean, it should happen," said Flynn.
It's entirely possible that Flynn simply has a homicidal sense of humor or finds murder and the violent overthrow of the American government amusing.
Either way, it sent many to question why Flynn hasn't gotten a visit by the FBI to question some of his statements.
The comments come just a week after two shootings in Washington, one outisde of National's Stadium and one in Logan Circle, less than a mile from the White House.

Philip Daniel Mills is behind bars Sunday after setting a house on fire for Jesus, reported KTSM News.
Like the story of Cain and Abel, the 40-year-old man set fire to an El Paso home on the West Side, killing his own brother.
"An affidavit written by an EPPD detective says Mills allegedly admitted to setting the house on fire. And, in a recorded statement, claimed to have used gasoline from a weed eater to fuel the fire," said the report.
The gas was poured on a sofa in the living room and a cloth that was on fire was then put on the gas-soaked couch, police reports explain.
"Once the sofa caught on fire, he walked outside the house and waited to see if his mother or brother would go outside, but they didn't," the affidavit reads. "The defendant advised that he waited outside the residence with large rocks in his hands in the event that both his brother and mother had made it out the burning residence."
A neighbor told reporters that Mills was "troublesome."
"He was bad news. All he would do was sit out there and drink and smoke, and I noticed he was back to his old routine," the neighbor, Roger Torres, told KTSM.
"The affidavit claims Mills caused the fire because he was upset with his brother and mother because they did not follow the Bible," said the report. "The document states Mills intentionally broke a television in the living room, and threatened to burn the house down."
"He intentionally broke the television located in the living room because he needed to 'purge the home from 'evil," Mills allegedly told police. "The defendant state that he left the residence and allowed his mother to be in a 'happy place' throughout the day and waited for both his mother and brother to go to bed, before starting the fire."
His mother, 82, is still alive but in the hospital in Lubbock with burns.
The neighbor expressed his own guilt for not calling the police on Mills before the fire. He said maybe they could have done something that would have stopped this fire from happening.
Mills was told by police that his brother died and his mother was injured.
"The defendant then laughed and advised the investigators that he was shocked that both his mother and brother did not perish and called it a 'failed attempt,'" the documents showed.
