From the AJC Political Insider…
Reed didn’t mention the name of Abramoff, and his explanation omitted many details. But it included what has become stock phrasing in his public appearances: “If I had known then what I know now, I would have turned that work down,” Reed said. “What I do not appreciate, and what I am confident the voters of this state are going to reject at the ballot box, is an unfair attempt by the liberal media to engage in guilt by association. To associate me with the wrongdoing of others is wrong. It’s unfair and it will be rejected by the voters.”
——————————————————————————————-For what it’s worth, Ralph contacted Abramoff and asked for his help “humping in” business clients. Read the emails between the two of them. The facts speak loud and clear on who was helping who in regards to Jack Abramoff and Ralph Reed. Ralph’s own actions, not his association, with Abramoff are the issue.
When it is all said and done, Georgia deserves to continue to have public servants who put public interests above self interests.
