Especially when the school is a very private, very pricey, excluding most and only for the privileged and a few token minority students, for diversity's sake students. Yes he can go there because of his rich upbringing. Since school occupies much of ones childhood, this hardly constitutes his growing up in Northlake. Your response is exactly what I was referring to when I suggested the s t r e t c h i n g the truth by progressives.

Padeia's tuition schedule, today. It is all relative, so it will hardly matter that he was schooled there in the late 90s to early 2000s.

Oh my, look! Young Mr Ossoff "grew up" in a ~4500 Square Foot modest bungalow, purchased for 1996 for $500,000. http://taxassessor.dekalbcountyga.go...=Y&pin=1333733

I'm not aware of him focusing on fringe issues, but the perception among partisan Republicans (such as many posters here) is that the Democratic party does in general. Thus, individual Democrats vote for a fringe agenda once elected even if they don't campaign on such positions.

The school he attended was close to the district and close to his house, which he still went home to...

If I lived 2 blocks away from where I grew up, I would have lived in one district and went to school in another. If I attended a private Catholic school nearby I would have attended school in even another district. Would that have meant I really didn't grow up in my district??


I do find it kind of ironic that you use the fact Ossoff grew up with $$ as evidence of how he doesn't fit this district of all places.....

What, he was too good for the public elementary school, less than a half a mile away or the public high school less than two miles away? His very expensive Private school is 10 miles away. The school district argument you are trying to pass off is deflection. $24,000 in tuition has nothing to do with public school districts.

He is not of the district, or he would be living in the district. The girlfriend in school convenience is just another deflection. Don't bother.

How is it a deflection?? He didn't grow up in the district because although he lived in the district growing up he attended in a private school 15-20 minutes away? What??

Fact of the matter is you do not need to live in the district to run there. He grew up in the district and lives 10 minutes from it. Members of both parties live in districts outside of the ones they represent and have run in.

Can't defend the position, change the subject. That is deflection. You can deny forever, but it is plain enough to see and exposes the deflector for what she is. A liar.
Indeed, not living within the district is the law in Georgia. So, true to progressive ideology, it is allowed.. Sound familiar?

It is not what the framers had in mind when they included the peoples house as the representative body in our republican form of government.

Clearly a big setback again for the Dems though who seem to think they are entitled to wins just because the other party has elected someone so deplorable.
Gee, you're not trying to be mean!

You don't get it.
I live in this district, many students attend private school. All kinds of people live here.
I get very irritated by ignorant remarks and assumptions.
I'm beginning to understand what the folks in Iowa and NH must feel like during primary season....

It isn't just a Georgia law. It is a federal law that you only need to live in the state.

It certainly isn't just progressives that have run outside of the district they live in. Former Congressman West did it when he ran for his 2nd term, Congressman Holding in NC chose not to run in his district last year and ran a primary against Elmers

As far as changing the subject. How exactly was the subject change. You somehow claimed that where he actually lived growing up didn't count as actually living in the district because the school he attended was outside the district. That is an absurd argument.
