Andre made a brief mention in this post about how Rev. Jesse Jackson dropped in on a Taylor fundraiser.
Thanks to a tip from a reader I found this story about the event:
ATLANTA The Reverend Jesse Jackson dropped in unexpectedly on a fundraiser for Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor, touting the Democrat’s health care program for children as well as his new proposal to boost Georgia’s minimum wage.
Taylor spokesman Rick Dent says last night’s visit was a surprise. He says the fundraisers are open for anyone to attend.
Jackson is in Atlanta for a “Creating Opportunity” conference which is promoting voting rights and economic development in minority communities.
About 100 people were at the Taylor fundraiser, including former U-S Senator Max Cleland.
Rev. Jackson’s appearance put’s Taylor in a bind. He can’t disavow the Rev. and yet he can’t embrace him. Dent’s comments are probably about the best thing they can say.
