Arthur Williams/Chris Pike Elections Challenges

I have received a few calls about the Arthur Williams and Chris Pike Election challenges. For those who are interested, the election board will consider the challenges on Monday, September 21, 2009 at 4:00pm and 4:30pm in Rm 120 of the Government Center located at 222 Pine Avenue, Albany, GA.

My understanding is that Arthur Williams' challenge against Chris Pike will be heard at 4:00pm, and Lon McNeil's challenge against Arthur Williams will be heard at 4:30pm.

I do not really understand Arthur Williams' challenge against Chris Pike. My understanding is that Chris Pike qualified before the deadline passed.

With respect to Lon McNeil's challenge against Chris Pike, the challenge centers around a law passed many years ago. I believe it was sponsored by Albany's own Doug Everett who now serves on the Georgia Public Service Commission. The point of the law was to prevent those who don't pay their taxes from holding public office. Who can argue with that?
