Brown Write-ins Good for 13% in Brunswick

Had Elaine Brown not been kicked off the ballot in the race for mayor of Brunswick, GA… she probably would have had a very good shot at winning.

Ballot Access News reports that Brown received 13% of the vote as a write-in, even though her campaign had been completely sidetracked with court battles and many voters were under the impression that write-ins for her would not be counted.

    Elaine Brown being Counter-Sued

    Elaine Brown, the former and only female leader of the Black Panther Party, wanted to be Mayor of Brunswick, Georgia. Before the election a challenge was filed to the candidacy of Elaine Brown. A hearing was held and evidence presented established that Elaine Brown DID NOT meet the legal requirements to run for Mayor.

    Elaine Brown has since filed appeal after appeal and filed other lawsuits challenging the Nov 8 Election results citing many violations and other reasons she cites in her lawsuits.

    Now, the first COUNTER-SUIT has been filed against Elaine Brown seeking damages and legal fees.

    The two Brunswick residents who successfully petitioned to get Elaine brown off the mayoral ballot in the Nov 8 city election are now counter-suing her.

    Brown has challenged the Glynn County Board of Elections ruling that removed her from the ballot in both Superior Court and U.S. District Court.

    In their lawsuit filed Wednesday, Howard Buie and Alice Norman seek restitution of their legal fees for defending themselves during Brown’s hearings.

    A hearing on Brown’s lawsuit contesting the results of last month’s election and a request for a new election will be held Dec 19 in Glynn County Superior Court.

    A hearing date has not been set for the counter-suit.
