Burt Jones


Burt Jones is a Georgia state senator and candidate for lieutenant governor who helped to fraudulently appoint the slate of Georgia “fake electors” who attempted to cast electoral votes for Trump. 

The Big Lie

  • On Dec. 8, 2020, Jones and 15 other Georgia lawmakers signed on to Texas v. Pennsylvania, a Supreme Court lawsuit seeking to challenge election results in Georgia and other swing states.
  • On. Dec. 14, 2020, Jones was at the center of efforts to fraudulently appoint fake electors in Georgia. The Trump campaign’s director for Georgia, Robert Sinners, directed fake electors to tell the media and others questioning their presence at the state capitol that day to say that they had a meeting with either Jones or Beach. Jones and others were directed by the Trump campaign to keep their plans secret, likely because the fake electors had no lawful authority to cast electoral votes for Trump.
  • On Jan. 5, 2021, Jones was one of more than 80 state legislators to sign a letter to Vice President Mike Pence demanding a halt to his certification of electoral votes. 
  • On the week of June 10, 2021, Jones and Beach traveled to Maricopa County, Ariz. and toured the facility where the fraudulent Arizona Election Audit was taking place. (That same week, Jones was presented with a “Warrior” award at Georgia’ Republican Party convention.)
