Arrowflinger Sings in Georgia Senate Chambers - Ethics? Where?
After Georgia House Speaker Glenn Richardson went down in flames of scandal and personal ruin in late 2009, in the early days of 2010 Arrowflinger Al went on a local talk radio program, the Austin Rhodes Show, on WGAC in Augusta, Georgia to endorse David Ralston as a "Reformer."
That summer Ralston took a $17,000 European vacation courtesy of lobbyists. More recently he received $5,000 from Affordable Equity Partners of Missouri who plopped down a public housing development, Magnolia Trace, in the middle of a sedate part of Columbia County.
There is also the matter of Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols, also touted by the Arrowflinger on the Austin Rhodes Show as a "reformer." Then he went about soliciting sporting event tickets on PSC letterhead!
Then some months ago, old Al confronted Representative Tom McCall about the lack of ethics at a Concerned Citizens of Lincoln County meeting and got blown off. The newspaper reporter failed to report what was a heated discussion.
This seemed to be an appropriate response.
If the good men and women of the Georgia General Assembly don't do something and fast, they will be laughed out of the state and shunned at home.
The Arrowflinger has been let down by politicians more often than a practice dummy at funeral training school.
The original footage was shady and a mite crooked. That is PERFECT!
Revenge is sweet?
