      He likely does it because he never thought about what his response should be when asked about his conviction and jail sentence.

      Rule 1 of running for office – be aware of and ready for the hard questions, 'cause they WILL be asked. If you don’t want to answer them = don’t run for PUBLIC office.

      I would have thought that would be self-explanatory but I guess it’s not.

        Except that didn’t happen at all. If you watch the video it was a stunt. The line of questioning had nothing to do with him.

        Here’s the question- was it a trial run for Trump in the debate with Biden? Let this guy do it, see how it plays with the MAGA types, then plan on Trump doing the same thing.

        I’m not trying to sound conspiratorial, this would be a pretty standard political move.

    And so, after a 30 second speech, Mr. Hand turned the remaining hour of television into a free Town Hall for his opponent.

    Chuck Hand, a construction superintendent, was convicted of a misdemeanor for illegally entering the U.S. Capitol building during the attempted insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, and was sentenced to 20 days in prison and six months of probation. He is facing Wayne Johnson, a former finance professional who most recently served as a Trump administration official with the Department of Education.

    Let’s hope Bishop pulls the incumbent win so we don’t have to hear from either of these fuckwits for long.

    I don’t think Chuck and I would agree on 90ish percent of things.

    However, I also don’t like people running for districts and cities/towns they don’t live in.

    GA will be the state that spawns the Idiocratization of American politics. This man, in full costume, dropped a WWE style smack down rather than debate. Then rode his Silverado into the sunset.
