Georgia Secretary of State files appeal in Jim Powell PSC case

The ball was back in her court and she played it like we thought she would.

Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel -- whose spokesperson said she was disappointed by last week's Fulton County Superior Court ruling that put Public Service Commission candidate Jim Powell back on the ballot -- is now contesting that decision in the Georgia Court of Appeals. She filed an appeal this morning, the candidate said.

"I'm going to continue fighting this in court," Powell said. "Looks like we'll take it all the way to the state Supreme Court if we have to."

No word yet on when the appeal will be heard. To read CL’s coverage of the never-ending PSC brouhaha, click here.
