Dear Certain Elected Official

No, I am not Maverick Johnson. Though you may not like what he writes, please be assured that I am not him and he is not me.

Thank you.

    Dear Ralph:

    I have sat back and watched with interest over the past year the situation unfold in Washington, DC between you, Grover Norquist, and Jack Abramoff, and so it with great disappointment that I cannot support or be involved with your campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Georgia.

    You are a very talented strategist, consultant, and lobbyist. You are great at encouraging and motivating others to take up the conservative fight for our country through the political process. However, with that said, I do not feel that you are necessarily cut out to be an elected official, especially in the state of Georgia.

    The candidates that we need to run for office today in the State of Georgia need to be candidates like that of former US Senator Paul Coverdell. They need to be set like concrete in their values and convictions. No amount of money would have ever made Paul Coverdell to even consider compromising his values.

    From listening to the testimony at the Indian Affairs Committee and reading the emails, you clearly knew what you were dealing with in working with Abramoff and Scanlon. For you to not have known, considering how intelligent you are is just inconceivable.

    With a Senate Committee continuing to investigate this issue and an FBI criminal probe in the progress, I feel that it would be best for our Georgia Republican Party if you would step aside and suspend your candidacy until this matter is further resolved.

    At which time that you are cleared of this matter, I and others I am sure, would be willing to reconsider you as a candidate for statewide office in Georgia.

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter.

    While I am not quite ready to kick Ralph to the curb, some of this stuff makes me wonder. Its not like he was raking in nickels from the tribe, it was millions. Funny thing, I watched Primary Colors for the first time last night. I couldn’t help but draw some parallels with the ethical dilemmas. I find myself wanting to believe in the candidate… Seems that at a certain level the ends justify the means.
