Five questions the Georgia state ethics investigation of Governor Nathan Deal’s 2010 campaign never answered
The state ethics commission is a mess, its organization and reputation in shambles. It’s forked over $3 million to four fired employees who blamed a cover-up in an investigation of Governor Nathan Deal’s 2010 campaign, then fired its most recent director last month after a judge said she’d been “dishonest and nontransparent.”
If Deal seems vexed, it’s understandable. In a state that favors incumbents and still leans right, the GOP governor should be cruising to re-election. But this race, which is Deal’s to lose, remains tied and possibly headed for a run-off.
At least this football season has delivered some exciting upsets and shifts in the team rankings. On the other hand, the latest batch of polls on Georgia’s gubernatorial and Senate races delivers a familiar narrative: these races are close, y’all.
The first head-to-head debates of this year's bids for U.S. Senate and the Georgia governorship were held at the fairgrounds in Perry, Georgia.
More than 60,000 people attended the three concerts held in Centennial Olympic Park, according to Pat O’Brien of the promotions group Bowery Presents South. The economic impact to the city has not been tallied, but attendees took over surrounding downtown hotels, restaurants, and bars, paid handsomely for parking, bought T-shirts, and took plenty of $13.50 rides on the Ferris wheel.
While everyone else in Atlanta was freaking out over this weekend's Outkast concerts, another Atlanta rapper made news. Ludacris visited a Southside charter school along with governor Nathan Deal.
Snowpocalypse taught us a few lessons—how to outfit your car for the next eighteen-hour commute (don’t forget a bucket to pee in!); how social media can accomplish what government cannot (thank you, Michelle Sollicito, creator of the SnowedOutAtlanta Facebook page); the best way to sleep on the floor of a CVS (diapers make good pillows).
Everybody knows political parties draw state and Congressional voting districts to favor their side, but seldom do politicians flat-out admit it.
