UH OH! Looks like Gov. Deal of Ga. may be in trouble.
I receive an email from the Ga. Democrats with what they term Breaking News.

Here's whattheir email said:

Revealed just minutes ago, an investigation into Governor Deal's campaign disclosures uncovers $90,000 in payments to a clandestine business owned by the Governor's own daughter-in-law.

Then they included this link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6BvSLB_L3U

It's a news clip from, of all places, FOX! I believe there's really something to this story becasue Deal is a Republican abd FOX never airs anything against a Rebug unless it's TRUE and they wanted to be the 1st out with the news.

BTW, Deal is also still under investigation by the FederalElection Committee for another ethic violation.

I'm going to have to check to see who is our Lt. Gov!!!

1. Save your time researching it's casey cagle and he's a repub too.
I'm glad he's under investigation but I hope he keeps his job sohe'll poison his party and we can win next time.

3. I hope we win next time too, but there are so few Dems prominent enough in Ga.
to ever win! I get so discouraged living here. every time I vote, I send another letter to the local Dem Party asking "WHY THE HELL IS XXXXX RUNNING UNOPPOSED?" It jst seems ike nobody wants to bother.

9. Just to make sure we're all red, all the time: voting machines
I think they're everywhere in the state for every election, just to ensure a rethug win every time.

12. I know exactly how you feel. Since 2002 it's really been going down hill here.
It also seems like even when a race is being contested we always seem to nominate the wrong person. Remember the Cliff Oxford fiasco in 2004?

15. You're not kidding!
I live in Cherokee County. Just about zero Dems in office here. That's why I don't vote in the local elections. Only Republicans running.

2. This sounds fairly big
At the least this will warrant an investigation.

4. He was openly criminal before this. Nothing will come of it.
All we care about in a Governor these days is that you are Republican and White.

13. Google shows the name and phone number...
Don't know why the report states otherwise. I want to know IF she really did not get a business license.

Otherwise, there is no surprise. The man is a snake and we all know it.
