More on the Taylor Ethics Matter

From a GAGOP release:
The State Ethics Commission today stated that in order to expedite an ethics complaint filed against Mark Taylor, one of the involved parties must file a motion for an interlocutory injunction.

The ethics complaint was filed last week because Taylor accepted and refused to return $35,000 of illegal contributions. Attorney and former Commission member Robert Highsmith, on behalf of Marty Klein and the Georgia Republican Party, will file an injunction this afternoon.

“The Commission Chairman today stated that in order for the Commission to consider acting expeditiously on the Complaint, the Complainant must file a motion for interlocutory injunction,

    Pandora’s box has just been opened. We will see everyone digging up everything filing these injunctions. Here come the frivolous campaign lawsuits….

    I don’t know if I should get a shovel and start digging… or put on my hip boots to stand around and watch.

    Panders for votes? As he panders for votes… spending the illegal funds…

    If $35,000 is going to tip the scales and topple Sonny, pandering ain’t the problem for the GOP.

    Didn’t their mommy tell them that money can’t buy everything?

    I got to get a sense of humor.

  3. Bull Moose says:

    This is much about nothing in my view… I would think that it works AGAINST Republicans to bring up “ethics” seeing as the Governor has some of his own issues to defend and just opens the door for that to be a major point of contention in the debate for the Governor’s office…

  4. Mad Dog says:

    Actually I wonder how many people really care about ethics on this blog?

    The ethics committee didn’t have a quorum for three years because the Governor would not appoint people to the committee.

    Who failed to appoint and maintain an ethics committee?

    Sonny did. (Sorry about that. It’s a cheap shot but I’m trying to be funny)

    Who’s denying Mark Taylor a day in court? The ethics committee.

    Who gets to label Taylor as engaging in illegal activity? Any Republican that wants to do it.

    How many Republicans do the same thing? Ouch!

    I don’t think the Republicans did Taylor any favors by NOT giving Taylor a public hearing as rapidly as possible. I think dragging out this issue is a great political move.

    I agree with Bull, it works against Republicans to have an ethics committee that works and resolves allegations like Micky Mouse Gate quickly and fairly.

    Not clearing Taylor, not investigating Sonny… wins for the Republicans, harms the Dems.

    Good Political strategy. Unethical. Dirty. Underhanded. But brilliant.
