Gov. Deal --Pimp Slaps Georgia Residents
Last comment by JimmyMack 2 months, 2 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.

Deal came in a corrupt, bankrupt crook. He will as a corrupt, bankrupt crook. Hopefully with jail time. However we live in a very Honey Boo Boo Republican voting state where one only has be a RINO can win, regardless of personal transgressions including those in the financial area.

Deals a crook.

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.

"What’s Nathan Deal done, exactly?"

Since you asked: According to the site run by Project VoteSmart - a "research center located high in the Montana Rockies and far from the partisan influences of Washington," here's some of what Deal has done exactly:

*CNBC Ranks Georgia No. 1 State in U.S. for Business

and

*Georgia Named No. 1 Most Competitive State in Nation

http://votesmart.org/public-statement...

*New Georgia Budget Includes Half a Billion Dollars In K-12 Education

Specifically:

"Gov. Nathan Deal today signed into law the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which takes effect upon the start of the fiscal year on July 1 and includes the largest single year increase in k-12 funding in seven years. The FY 2015 budget expects the economic growth Georgia has seen since emerging from the Great Recession to accelerate and includes an estimated revenue increase of 3 percent, or $602.5 million, over the Amended FY 2014 budget. This marks the fourth year in a row the governor has successfully and conservatively balanced the state's budget without raising taxes and while providing for long-term strategic investments necessary to keep Georgia competitive in the global economy."

*Gov. Nathan Deal and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) announce the launch of additional financial support for Georgia's early childhood educators to enhance their credentials through three new programs.

*Deal Prevents Increase in Gas Tax, Providing Relief to Taxpayers

*Deal Signs Bill Increasing Rural Health Care Providers
