Jack Kingston making hay with a Palestine Felon
Last comment by sebekm 1 month, 1 week ago.

BREAKING NEWS: An attorney says that the Kingston campaign KNEW that an $80,000 campaign fundraiser was connected to Khalid A. Satary, a Palestinian felon up for deportation.

This contradicts Kingston's story that he knew nothing about where the money was coming from.

Of course in a later AJC post, Kingston denies knowledge:

But let the mudslinging begin. Perdue will use this to advantage if he can. IMHO - the run-off is Perdue's to lose based upon his strategic GA constituency. If any of this sticks to Kingston, it will only help Perdue.

In a related story, this is what I meant when I said the GOP is its own worst enemy - especially when it comes to putting their collective feet in their mouths:

Despite contradictory accounts, Rep. Jack Kingston STILL maintains that he doesn't know Khalid A. Satary.

Satary is a convicted felon from Palestine whose company hosted an $80,000 fundraiser for Kingston's campaign. He's the one standing to Kingston's right in the picture below-after you click on the link.

There's one problem with saying that a politician "knows" somebody - they take plenty of photos at political events and fundraisers with people they don't actually "know." Remember those notorious "White House Party-Crashers" from 2009? They're the ones who beat White House security and had photos taken with President Obama and Vice President Biden:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11...

And remember that later it was discovered that they had been named in 16 different civil suits - sometimes as plaintiffs and sometimes as defendants:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/11/2...

Politicians take pictures with people they don't know all the time. They rely on their security and support teams to protect and vet them from unsavory characters. As indicated above, the system sometimes breaks down.

Kingston's denial of "knowing" Satary should probably be taken as truth until something more comes out to contradict it. WE THE PEOPLE don't seem to care about all of President Obama's friends and associates who have less than stellar backgrounds. See;

In this context, Kingston appears to deserve a break.

Sebekm-The focus is on Georgia Politics. Some of us are concerned about what is going on in the state of Georgia and local government. Sorry, but I've grown tired of your daily attacks and obsession with the POTUS. Have a great weekend and Happy Fathers day.

Jack with all his choir boy looks and down home persona when in his home state, is in truth, a rabid Conservative Tea Party type Republican when in Washington and busy promoting a hard right wing agenda.

@PN. Your cartoon block above accurately captures a facet of Jack's political posture.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY JIMMY! I pray your blessed to see many more.

"Have a great weekend and Happy Fathers day."

Thank you.

"Sebekm-The focus is on Georgia Politics. Some of us are concerned about what is going on in the state of Georgia and local government."

As am I. You stated a misleading case for condemning Kingston because he "knew" that a campaign donation came from a felon. I pointed out the error of your ways, and made a comparison with your hero - President Obama - and his felonious acquaintances. I'm sorry of you don't like the comparison, but it is valid.

As for my daily attacks and "obsession with POTUS," I will continue to point out current events and the facts. The ENTIRE COUNTRY is focused on the actions of this President as he runs the country into the dumper.

NO one compared him to the POTUS-let's clear that lie up. You have become are a bitter and angry man. Bless your soul.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Jun 19, 2014 at 14:20 PM

PN: Once again you miss the point entirely. I COMPARED HIM TO POTUS - as far as who knows who when they take pictures with people at fund-raisers. You choose to ignore that Obama takes pictures with unknown, unsavory characters as well. That's your prerogative, but them's the facts.

I am only bitter when I think about how this President promised so much hope and change and has delivered so much grief and pain.

One other thing you failed to notice: I have not been making "daily attacks" on POTUS. It has often been as much as a week or more between my posts for the past few months or so. But if you like, I will return to my daily postings here - just to inspire you.

Howzat?

sebekm commented on Friday, Jun 20, 2014 at 12:17 PM

...and here's two more stories which support my argument that "knowing" perhaps is not always "knowing."

*Obama mega-donor claims he's met with the President "on a number of occasions":

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckrake...

*Same guy just indicted on fraud and manslaughter charges:

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckrake...

So - does the President "know" him because he's received seven-figure donations from him and has met with him "on a number of occasions?" Or do we give Mr. Obama a pass because politicians often meet and have pictures taken with rich people who give them lots of money?

That was my point. Local politics aside, your premise in the basic blog post and initial comments was that Kingston "knew" this "felon" because he had a picture taken with him and received campaign donations from him. I said: if it works for Kingston, then it works for Obama, too.
