Spence Pryor

Don’t go looking for the Governor’s Press Release on Spence Pryor. It’s not there any more, but here is the Google cache.

Earlier this month, Spence was named Deputy Executive Counsel to the Governor, but he is not coming. Rumor has it the President has appointed Spence as a Deputy White House Political Director.

Good for him! He’ll actually be in a better position to help Georgia from that spot. That he was willing to work for Sonny and is now working for POTUS is a win-win I think. It truly shows we have a friend in the White House.

From the Google Cache

Pryor has served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia in the Major Crimes section of the Criminal Division since March 2005.

He is a member of the Georgia Bar Association, the Federalist Society and the Gridiron Secret Society. Pryor is a native of Americus , Georgia . He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from The University of Georgia and his law degree from University of Georgia School of Law. Pryor is married to Elissabeth “Lissa” Pryor.

    I was in DC a few weeks ago and I met up with a friend of mine who is former campaign staff and now a Dep Dir at Commerce. From what he was telling me, it sounds like Spence would have been better off with Sonny. People (especially BC’04 staffers now working for the Administration) are herding out of DC like the preverbial buffalo stampede, looking for jobs Outside The Beltway. I asked him if that even included folks from K St. and he confirmed, primarily due to struggles caused by Abramoff/Scanlon et al, but a lot of folks ITB are blaming just as much of that on Georgia’s own Ralph Reed as they are the others. Just thought that was an interesting side item, since Erick mentioned his info re: McCain and Indian Affairs. The only difference is that I didn’t wake up the next morning with a hangover.
