Gov. Deal --Pimp Slaps Georgia Residents
Last comment by shannalat 5 months, 3 weeks ago.

The Deal scandal, thus far, has cost taxpayers at least $4 million dollars, and a recently leaked document suggests that investigations by state and federal agencies may only be getting started.


While Georgia families struggle, Gov. Deal is using our tax dollars like a personal legal defense fund.

The state recently finalized settlements with three former employees of the Georgia Ethics Commission connected with the commission’s investigation of Gov. Nathan Deal’s 2010 campaign.

Those settlements, combined with the jury verdict in favor of the commission’s former director, mean Georgia taxpayers now owe more than $3 million for the cover-up of the investigation into Gov. Deal’s campaign.

It’s now more apparent than ever that Gov. Deal’s team interfered with the investigation into his own campaign finances.

Attorney General Sam Olens has denied previous requests for an independent investigation, claiming that the requests were politically motivated. But this isn’t about politics. It’s about the truth.

Georgians deserve honesty and transparency from their elected officials, and it starts with a full, independent investigation of both the original Deal campaign finance case and the cover-up that ensued. We can’t afford to wait any longer.

I agree-- but he has too many ethic issues on the table to continue governing. His biggest mistake was cutting funding designated for education.

What’s Nathan Deal done, exactly? Enough to warrant the No. 1 spot in “The Worst Governors in America,” a 2013 report from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. The report explains the list as follows:

Power corrupts, everyone always. Man should not be allowed to stay in power long. Nathan Deal is a prime example of this. He is a career politician who has no problem enacting legislation but a big problem following it.
See I have an issue with career politicians no matter what party they are part of.
Most of the founding fathers had multiple occupations.
farmers
merchants
scientists
judges
Lawyers
Finance
my suggestion to Deal is the same my dad would say when kids are getting in trouble "get a job bum"
and politics is not a job.
