Atlanta, GA, September 9, 2022: The Libertarian Party of Georgia is joining Libertarian candidate, Ryan Graham, in a lawsuit against Attorney General Christopher Carr and the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission. The suit challenges the formation of “leadership committees” that allow candidates to accept contributions in excess of the $7,600 limit imposed on statewide candidates, violating the constitutional rights of third-party candidates.
As the Democratic and Republican parties are the only organizations officially designated as “political parties” in Georgia, only those running for office under those parties are eligible for this type of fundraising. This lawsuit seeks to level the playing field for Libertarian and other third party and independent candidates.
