Like Katherine Harris in Florida, it appears Georgia’s Angela Moore has a campaign on life support. This letter of resignation came in through the tip line:
JANE CRAWFORD BATOR
July 11, 2006
Ms. Angela Moore
4790 Cleveland Rd
Lithonia, GA 30038
I, Jane Bator, hereby tender my resignation as a volunteer to your campaign for the office of Secretary of State of Georgia. I am also calling in the balance of the loan I made you April 23, 2006 for the amount of $3, 431.27. Balance due is $1,931.28. I expect payment no later than Friday, July 7, 2006 by certified check or money order. I have also enclosed an invoice for reimbursable expenses I have shelled on behalf of the campaign in the amount of $477.
I am sorry it has come to this and I hope we can close this chapter civilly. When I loaned you the money for your qualification fees, you promised that the money would be there by the end of the week and I would be repaid immediately. You also assured me that you would repay the loan before you spent any other monies on the campaign (rental cars, literature, t-shirts, functions, TV ad shoots, etc.). You have failed in this obligation!
I would also like the return of the clothes I lent you and the white board I bought. I have a box of your materials that I will return to you.
Please remove my name from all areas of your web site including all press releases.
By this Friday, July 7, 2006 the following will need to be complete:
1. A certified check or Money Order made out to Jane Bator for the balance of the loan in the amount of $1,931.28.
2. An expense check in the mount of $477.
3. The return of my clothes and white board.
4. Jane Bator will return all materials belonging to the Angela Moore campaign.
Jane Crawford Bator
Ms. Moore’s campaign chair and manager have both left the campaign, apparently. One word of caution — I haven’t had a chance to check the veracity of this letter. I’ll follow up this afternoon.
