PROSECUTE THE PROSECUTORS (OPINION): Four of Georgia’s 49 District Attorneys were under state or federal investigation during the last election cycle. Jessica Szilagyi says state prosecutors like this are costing innocent men their freedom- often without any real repercussions. Do you think it’s time we hold them accountable?
BULLETS VS. BALLOTS (OPINION): With a GOP filibuster expected to block federal voting legislation in the Senate today, LaDawn Jones thinks it’s time we talk about laws here in Georgia.
