Governor Geoff Duncan changed the state Senate committee tasks for Senators Matt Brass, Brandon Beach and Burt Jones last Tuesday , All of these people joined President Donald Trump’s efforts to undermine the election results in Georgia.
Beech was stripped of the chairmanship of the Transportation Committee, and Jones was removed from the chairmanship of the Insurance and Labor Committee. Macy McFall, deputy director of Duncan’s office and head of communications, stated that Blass was reassigned to the Banking and Financial Institutions Committee instead of continuing to head the politically influential redistribution and redistribution committee .
Jones said on Thursday: “It didn’t bother me, it was just trying to make us feel embarrassed. It really bothered me.” “It’s really unnecessary and trivial.”
He pointed out that this is the first time since his freshman year in 2013 that he has not served as chairman. Jones also said that he and two other senators did not want to change the election results, but hoped to conduct a more in-depth investigation of potential problems in the state’s voting process.
He told CNN: “We are not trying to overturn the election.” “You must have evidence to overturn the election, but for evidence, you must investigate.”
Brass and Beach did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
The Republican Party has a majority in the Georgia State Senate, with more than 30 of the 56 seats in the Senate.
The December statement said: “We are the trustees of the people, and we must ensure that they vote on all foreign and domestic people who will deceive their collective decisions in the ballot box.”
McFair said that the new state Senate committee mandate takes effect immediately.
Duncan said in Tuesday’s statement: “These committee chairs are uniquely qualified to develop truly lasting solutions for a better Georgia.” “The Senate will continue to prioritize hard-working committee work and a sound public Policy, I look forward to working closely with each of our chairpersons and their committee members because we are committed to formulating policies to improve the lives and livelihoods of all people in Georgia.”
