Manswell Peterson was born in Albany, Georgia, and has lived there for 12 years. He is a disabled Navy Veteran and has written many books. He founded OmegaMan Publishing & Manswell Peterson Studios, and was the Department Chair and Professor of Criminal Justice at Darton State College for 3 years. Investigations have been made into where he acquired his funds, because of the unusual amount of small-dollar donors.
Peterson advocates against SB 202 and cites it as a bill promoting voter suppression. He will work to reduce long waiting times while in line to vote using technology and proper resource allocation to solve this issue.
