    ATLANTA, GA – Two leaders of elections watchdog groups, John Fortuin and Garland Favorito, called for former Secretary of State Karen Handel to withdraw her gubernatorial bid on the grounds of a lack of ethical conduct during her tenure as Secretary of State. The leaders also challenged state and local news media to investigate ethics questions for all candidates. The charges of inappropriate ethics included evidence that: She took tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from individuals directly connected to the voting machine vendor lobbyist, Massey and Bowers; She reversed her position on Georgia’s unverifiable voting machines after accepting the contributions; She allowed a voting machine vendor lobbyist to have undue influence and control over the Secretary of State office by appointing a partner of the lobbying firm as her deputy; She conducted politically motivated investigations cited in many of the 60 impeachment articles filed in the General Assembly against her Inspector General, Shawn LaGrua; John Fortuin, videographer of 6 years of State Election Board meetings, elaborated: “We believe there is clear evidence that the Secretary of State office has been an epicenter of political corruption for 8 years. Just like her predecessor Cathy Cox, Karen Handel has gotten a free pass from the media on ethics questions. Although the improprieties cited have been well documented for months and even years in some cases, only a couple of news media outlets have carried stories about them.” To illustrate the point the leaders cited the Lowndes County State Election Board case 2008-00133. They contend that the impeachment articles and supporting documents clearly indicate that a voting machine technician was framed to cover-up violations committed by an elections supervisor who was an acquaintance of Karen Handel.

        Until Man realizes His Common Unity as the Son of One Infinite God, Conflict will remain upon the Earth. Lay down your swords, for He who lives by the Sword, will surely die by the Sword! THE THIRTEENTH STEP 1. God is One Spirit, Whose Essence is Love, Goodness, Truth, and Beauty. 2. He is All Powerful, thereby removing all power from form and effect, 3. He is Everywhere Present and therefore present right where I am. 4. He expresses Himself as my Individual Consciousness, through which He manifests Himself as All Wisdom, All Knowledge, and All Power in every situation and at every single moment of my life. 5. He appears as my Perfect Life, when I first renounce the human belief in good and evil, and affirm that God is the Only Power, the Only Presence, the Only Law, and the Only Activity, and I am the expression of His Life in Time and Space. 6. He expresses Himself as the individual consciousness of all men, but this Blessed Truth benefits only those who are consciously aware of His Presence, and who are willing to experience His Life as their own. 7. He has no favorite religion, race or creed, but is the heartbeat of all men for all time. 8. He is Eternal and Indestructible, and, when actually experienced by men, 9. Destroys all sin, sickness, disease, lack, and limitation of any name or nature. 10. He communicates His Will and Direction to all men, giving specific guidance to each one of us at our point of need, but His Love benefits only those who can be still and listen for His Still, Small Voice, and who can summon the inner courage and will to see the Universe though His Eyes. 11. He flows as an Infinite River of Life, Light, and Understanding, through our individual God given consciousness, our minds, our bodies, and our world of affairs, and He uses our individual consciousness as His Gate, 12. Through which He appears as the substance of all harmonious from, and the destroyer of all that testifies to deceit and illusion, and 13. And, last, He shares with us all that He is, and all that He has, giving us His Name, I, and His Nature, Love.
