Several dozen MAGA Georgians showed up to the Reformation Brewery outside of Atlanta on Saturday to hear indicted former state Republican Party Chair David Shafer say if he “had to do it all over again, knowing the trouble that would come on me, I do not know that I would have done anything different. I can’t think of anything I would have done different,” as he implored them to buy raffle tickets and $30 lunch combos to help pay the legal bills for himself and his 14 remaining co-defendants in the Trump 2020 election conspiracy case, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Photos of the “crowd” sitting in front of the stage appear almost as if they were taken in a bluer state during mandatory “social distancing” three years ago. Actually the Journal-Constitution’s politics guy Greg Bluestein’s description of a “few dozen” supporters showing up might be a charitable embellishment as the two pics do not show any more than nine fans watching. It’s quite possible that the Georgia GOP spent more money renting the venue and on the raffle prizes than they actually were able to collect from what Bluestein described as a “sparse crowd.”
“Why did [Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis] wait until August [to indict our Lord and Savior and his apostles]? You know it and I know it. It’s so she can drag this out in the middle of the election. You want to talk about election interference? That’s election interference,” Shafer’s successor, current Georgia GOP chair Josh McKoon told the possibly double-digit “audience.”
