Jon Ossoff the Democrat Candidate in GA6 Seems to Have Another Little Issue With Voting

Democrat Jon Ossoff is in the Georgia 6th Congressional District runoff with Republican Karen Handel. They are vying for Tom Price’s old seat. This race is one of those on the Democrat’s target list in an effort to embarrass President Donald Trump. The embarrassment may actual be that of Jon Ossoff.

Ossoff has not been eligible to vote in any of the runoff elections that have occurred since 2010, but his record for turning out in other elections has been far from stellar.
