    I don’t recall reading in the Walker indictment that the U.S. took issue with the payments to The Focus being “excessive.” Does “excessive have a legal definition to it, Erick?

  2. Erick says:

    Well, I should probably have put “unjustifiably” before excessive. Look at the last paragraph on page 35. It was not the $7000.00 that did Walker in, it was the $31,000.00 payment that could not be explained. It was unjustifiably excessive, , or specifically in Walker’s case, fraudulent.

    But thanks for the comment. I’ve edited the post to more accurately reflect that.

    I see nothing wrong and don’t believe laws have been broken by Reed.

    A complaint will be filed against Cagle for mis stating funds received this week even if I have to file it myself.

  4. jacewalden says:


    An ETHICS complaint against Ralph Reed??? WTF, OMFG! This comes as such a surprise. I’m shocked to my very core…SHOCKED I tell you!

    I hope everyone appreciates sarcasm.

  5. Michael C says:

    I would ewxpect nothing less, Debbie. Reed’s your guy. What’s that old addage “caught with a dead girl or live boy”. I not even sure that will sway your allegiance to Reed.

  6. debbie0040 says:

    I see nothing excessive in the payments like was in Walker’s case. No laws were broken.

    I will bet a steak dinner Reed will be exonerated.

    Cagle will be forced to change his disclosure form when the complaint is filed against him this week.

    Did you guys hear? Sean Hannity is coming back to Georgia to hold another fund raiser for Ralph.

  7. Demonbeck says:

    When is Reed going to have someone from and living in Georgia hold a fundraiser for him?

  8. debbie0040 says:

    You mean like Bill Elliot? 🙂

    Rudy and Sean will raise tons more than someone like Bill Elliot.

  9. Demonbeck says:

    Awesome Bill from Dawsonville is from Georgia and lives in Georgia. He may not bring out the DC/Atlanta money like Sean Hannity, but at least he can vote for his candidate.

  10. nfire says:

    Is Hannity a fake conservative? Does he think Georgia is too stupid to decide for ourselves who we want for our Lieutenant Governor? People who show up at Rudy and Hannity events are already maxed out on Ralphie. Ralphie is losing the fundraising race.

    Funny how Ralphie couldn’t even make it through the race without breaking the law. Also great to see all his minions grasping at straws on here.

  11. debbie0040 says:

    Rudy is raising a great deal of money for Ralph.

    My Dad is a retired Independent Baptist minister, far right wing, pro life, and he loves Rudy. So does my Mom.

    nfire provide proof of how Ralph broke the law.

    Cagle’s campaign has admitted to breaking the law on disclosures.

  12. George Allen 08 says:


    How about Zell Miller? I think he’s from Georgia and knows a little bit about the Lieutenant Governor position.

  13. jacewalden says:

    Sean Hannity is an idiot who is in love with the sound of his own voice. I agree with some of his stances (I.E. Fair Tax). And I agree with his allegiance to the Republican party…but I still think he’s an idiot. And his support of Ralph isn’t going to do a damn bit of good.

  14. nfire says:

    We’ll soon see who lost the fundraising. If Ralphie has been washing his money once again he’s going to be done for, but you’ll still be on here apologizing for him.

    Cagle reported campaign contributions early. Big freakin deal.

    As far as Hannity is concerned, in this race, he’s just like Tom Cruise or Danny Glover or Ben Affleck in Hollywood trying to get involved in politics – you don’t know anything or belong here, so BUTT OUT.

  15. Bill Simon says:

    Ralph can raise $10,000,000 if he wants to. No amount of media from him (e.g., TV ads, direct-mail, etc.) will be able to washout the stink that is pervasive within his very being.

    By the way, for a guy supposedly being “raised in the mountains of North Georgia” (HIS claim), it’s kinda funny how he decides to register his companies in Delaware, rather than in good old Georgia.

    Perhaps Erick can shine some light on what kind of companies always go to Delaware to incorporate (or, “LLC” themselves), and why wouldn’t they want to incorporate in the state where they do the most business, if not where the owners live?

  16. Demonbeck says:

    Zell is the only Georgia endorsement of merit I have heard of out of the Reed campaign. Does he have any others?

    Cagle has about half of the entire General Assembly endorsing him. Who do you think is closer to the voters – a retired Senator and a New York news guy or locally elected officials?

  17. George Allen 08 says:

    Well if Cagle has continued raising $100,000 a day, then yes, Reed is indeed in a lot of trouble. However, we all know this is not the case. Ralph Reed has raised more money (I believe Erick found it to be 39 percent more), and has more cash on hand.

    And did you really just compare Sean Hannity to Ben Affleck?

  18. nfire says:

    I compared Sean Hannity to Ben Affleck. Butting into politics when you have no idea what you’re talking about and have no reason to open your pie hole. Sean Hannity = Ben Affleck

  19. debbie0040 says:

    Reed did nothing wrong. You Cagle supporters are like the boy that cried wolf too many times. People will ignore you and you end up looking foolish or like you have some un-natural obsession with Reed.

    Voters will see that well respected leaders like Zell, Sean, Rudy, Newt, and others are backing Reed. They will surmise that the rumors and innuendo being spread by the media and Cagle Camp are lies.

    I will bet the average GOP voter has a higher opinion of those leaders than they do of their State Senators.

    They will see that Zell is also running ads for Gov. Perdue.

    Cagle will also have a complaint filed against him this week and he will have to ammend his return and admit that HE broke the law when he filed his disclosure form.

  20. debbie0040 says:

    Nfire, Sean Hannity’s primary job is commenting on politics daily not acting. There is a huge difference.

  21. debbie0040 says:

    Bill, plenty of corporations do the exact same thing when there are different divisions. Want me to give you examples?

  22. Bill Simon says:

    I’m sure there are, Debbie. But, truly, the primary reason is actually because in order to sue the entity, you have to contend with a Registered Agent in another state…which is usually a P.O. Box parked in Delaware.

    Oh, how the crow must taste….

    debbie0040 Apr 30th, 2006 at 9:50 am

    Why would the Reed campaign file one? It is a smarter political move to the let the grassroots do it. The Reed campaign is not going to lower themselves like the Cagle campaign has.

    More from debbie0400….

    It sounds like you are saying why should Cagle waste his time following the law. The law is clear. It says DATE OF RECEIPT. It seems you want to exempt Cagle from the law.

    gopdoc May 1st, 2006 at 10:22 am

    Your candidate lied about how much money he collected in one day. He puffed up his numbers, breaking state ethics laws, in order to make us think he had money that was not even in hand.

    gopdoc Apr 28th, 2006 at 10:20 am

    So now we find out what goes on at the Cagle campaign when no one is looking. The violate state ethics laws.

    And my personal favorite……

    debbie0040 Apr 28th, 2006 at 4:33 pm


    Georgia Ethics in Government Act:


    Cagle not only violated ethics, he violated the law.

  24. McCain-Rice\'08 says:

    1. Here you go again bringing up Reed’s national endorsements to impress us and try to make a statement, I think it’s clear….we all know who is behind Reed, and thaose endorsements dont influence my vote one bit.

    2. You also continue to talk about the “Funds race,” do you think political office should be bought?? If so youre wrong, I dosnt work like that all the time, ask Governor Barnes if you don’t believe me.

    3. Id rather have a Lt.Governor that has the trust and support of his collegues in the State Senate, and the ability to push forward conservative mesures EFFECTIVELY. Id also rather have a Lt. Governor that cares about all Georgians and will connect with people on a personal level, rather than one who only cares about you so long as you will pay $5,000 to get a photo with Rudy Guliani.

  25. McCain-Rice\'08 says:

    4. I almost forgot, “Reed hasnt done anything wrong”…yehh, ok Debbie we believe you:) just kidding!

  26. McCain-Rice\'08 says:

    seriously though, have you realized that you are the only one on this site that has the audacity to say “Reed hasn’t broken the law” and “Reed hasnt done any thing wrong”…count your followers honey!
