Friends, Bloggers, and fellow Georgians, it’s time to put the nail in the coffin of negative and personally destructive politics.
Karen Handel is my candidate for Secretary of State, because she has a record of success in cleaning up corruption, is a fiscal conservative, and she has the desire to do the job. Karen has great credentials of which to bring to this job. She’s worked in both the private sector and in government. She knows how to get things done!
This year we’ve seen the encroachment of the whisper campaign used to new levels to make attacks against people who stand for office and their families. It’s not right and it needs to be rejected by the voters of Georgia.
Handel’s opponent, the former Senate Majority Leader, Bill Stephens, sat by while his campaign contributed to the spreading of rumors about Karen and her husband. Where I grew up in Georgia, that’s not right and shouldn’t be tolerated. Gentlemen just do not act like that and get away with it.
Furthermore, Stephens faced the largest ethics violation fine in the history of the Georgia Senate. He brags about this as it is some sort of battle scar of which to be proud. Have we as a society sunk so low as we can tolerate this level of cyniscm? Not only did Stephens face this fine, but on top of that, he was fined for paying the fine late.
I am sincerely surprised at some of those who have endorsed and continue to support Bill Stephens, especially some of our elected officials. They are demonstrating poor judgement.
Let’s put the nail in the coffin of negative politics and vote for Karen Handel for Secretary of State.
