Mark Amick is a politician who lives in Milton, Georgia and is among 14 fake electors from Georgia who are under investigation by a Fulton County grand jury for breaking local election laws. In December 2020, he filed paperwork claiming that he was an official elector representing Georgia and would cast his vote for Donald Trump based on the lie that the former president had won the 2020 election in Georgia.
Amick graduated from the University of Kansas and has a business degree from the University of Missouri. During his business career, he has worked for technology and telecom companies such as Microsoft and Sprint. He has also been involved in charitable and civic organizations in Milton, including the Milton Historical Society, and has volunteered at a local elementary school.
Amick ran for Milton City Council in 2019 but lost the election. In 2022, he served on the Milton Election Feasibility Committee, which was tasked with determining if it makes sense for the small city to hold its own municipal election. He was also a board member of the Georgia Republican Foundation.
The Big Lie
- Amick worked as a poll monitor in Fulton County during the 2020 presidential election. During a hearing to review allegations of election fraud held by the Georgia State Senate, he testified that he identified an error of more than 9,000 votes incorrectly going to Biden during the first recount in Georgia.
- Amick was originally named as a witness in the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office investigation into the 2020 election. However, once he was named as a target, his legal representation at the firm Pierson Law moved to excuse him from providing testimony to the grand jury. The motion also called the subpoenas directed at Amick “unreasonable and oppressive” and attempted to bar the DA from prosecuting Amick and several other fake electors, while demanding that the grand jury report be sealed from public view until after the November 2022 election.
