"One of the nuttier things I've seen": MAGA civil war erupts in Georgia

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who helped build the modern Republican Party in Georgia, theorized the lawyers were whipping up conservatives because “they understand that if they’re out there saying more and more radical things, they’ll get more publicity.”

“It’s one of the nuttier things I’ve seen in a long time in politics,” Gingrich told POLITICO, adding that it’s OK for Trump to question whether the vote against him was rigged — as long as he tells Republicans to vote for Perdue and Loeffler, and to not listen to Wood…

Wood’s Twitter bio lists an acronym for the “Where We Go One We Go All” catch phrase of the QAnon conspiracy theory that posits Trump is fighting a war with a global cabal of Satanic pedophiles who drink the blood of children they slay. He also advised Congress’s first public QAnon adherent, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene…

According to a lawsuit filed in August by three lawyers who worked with him, Wood in late 2019 began acting erratically, making “abusive, incoherent phone calls, voicemails, texts, and emails … All of these erratic communications have a few things in common: most of these emails profess that God or the Almighty was commanding his actions; many were stating his refusal to pay the Plaintiffs ‘one thin dime;’ and virtually all were abusive.”
