Chief Magistrate Winston P. Bethel confirmed Tuesday that Majette will be sworn in and begin hearing cases once her term in Congress officially ends Jan. 3. Majette was a longtime DeKalb State Court judge before running for Congress in 2002.She was a potential candidate for Lt. Governor in Georgia but this will mean an end to that rumor. What I do not understand is why, as a one-term incumbent would she seek a Senate seat in a state that is turning red. Not just that, but her running for Senate meant Cynthia McKinney would run for her seat. That was a bad political move in my mind.
"Of course, the congresswoman brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this," Bethel said. "I basically came to her because I know of her experience and because of our personal relationship from when she was in the State Court."
Thanks to Dr. Jay for the tip!
