Not surprisingly, ethics have become a central issue in the campaign for governor between GOP incumbent Sonny Perdue and his Democratic challenger, Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, with charges of impropriety raised against both.
Of the two, the allegations against Taylor seem the more serious and well-documented. The lieutenant governor has clearly violated the spirit of state ethics law and perhaps the rules as well by accepting $40,000 in campaign contributions from multiple businesses owned by a Columbus car dealer. Taylor should immediately return $35,000 in excess donations.
What about it Mr. Taylor?
