Georgia Libertarian Legislative Candidate Files Ballot Access Lawsuit

On July 28, Jeff Amason, the only Libertarian who petitioned to be on the ballot this year for the Georgia legislature, filed a lawsuit in state court to gain a place on the ballot. Even though he successfully obtained the signatures of 5% of the number of registered voters, he is still being kept off the ballot because his wife notarized most of his petition sheets, and she herself circulated a few sheets, although she did not notarize the sheets she circulated. Amason’s campaign is incorporated, and his wife is an officer of that corporation. Georgia law says a corporate officer can notarize documents involving the corporation. The lawsuit is Amason v Kemp, in Superior Court in Fulton County.
