Legislation introduced recently to bar those who have been in litigation with an election commission and lost from serving on that commission has stalled on Capitol Hill. The piece of legislation, proposed by Sen. Mae Beavers, was apparently aimed at former DeKalb County administrator of elections Lisa Peterson. The measure, an amendment to Senate Bill 0925, read: “no person may serve as a member of a county election commission if the person has been a plaintiff in litigation against the county election commission on which the person seeks to serve and the court ruled in favor of the county election commission.”
