Mike Wiggins Continues to Be Toast

Because his sister is still pissed.

I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this, but he has never managed to adequately explain the allegations in the Hunstein ad related to his sister. I’ll give him his mother, but the sister stuff needs to be explained or repented.

So far that hasn’t happened.

Those supporting him still have over a million in the bank, but the Hunstein ad was a serious wound.

    Is it true Wiggins was funded by an out of state front group dumping over a million bucks into his campaign?

    This is from Hunstein’s campaign:

    Sunday marked a new low in the history of Georgia politics. The Safety and Prosperity Coalition — a group opposing the reelection of Justice Hunstein to the Supreme Court — reported receiving a $1.3 million contribution from a single source, the largest political contribution in the state’s history. The contribution makes a mockery of Georgia’s campaign finance laws, which limit contributions to $5000 in the race.

    The donor is a Washington, D.C. entity known as the American Justice Partnership, a front organization for those lobbying for tort reform legislation. The Partnership has refused to identify where it got the money to make the contribution, claiming that its donors are anonymous. Those bankrolling the campaign of Carol’s opponent are spending millions on television to distort her record in criminal cases. These entites — many of whom have each contributed $25,000, $50,000, $100,00 and now $1.3 million — are not interested in criminal matters or a fair and impartial court.

    I’m sorry that you may go to your grave not understanding all the salacious details of this family squabble. There is never a way to “explain” why family disputes are so bitter, and why one side always thinks the other is a liar, the other thinks the other side is mean, etc. The question is, does any of this offer insight into Mike Wiggins’ character? Three FBI investigations did not think so.

    One may never understand what causes rivalry between siblings. Mike Wiggins’ actions in this lawsuit do not need to be explained, nor do they need to be part of this race. It says nothing about his judicial temperment or character. It says loads about the lack of character of his opponent.

    This makes great tabloid journalism, which is why a newspaper with sagging sales prints this kind of stuff. The people who have known Mike Wiggins and worked with him for many years do not find these facts consistent with the consistent professionalism he has exhibited. It is too bad that our sitting justices do not display as much professionalism.

    Wiggins has flatly denied the sister’s charge and provided sufficient information about her actions in the proceeding in question, which ought to cause any objective observer to seriously question her integrity:

    I am really not sure what else y’all expect him to say.

    I think voters ought to view the debate between Hunstein and Wiggins and decide for themselves which candidate is best suited for the Supreme Court:

    I personally found Wiggins’s closing remarks compelling.

    Candlerpark,

    I bet.

    Reminds me of that little family squabble down in Florida with the brain dead wife, Terry Schiavo.

    No Republican had a problem judging that husband. Heck E Darn. The President flew home to sign a bill. First diagnosed her over the phone.

    Talk out the other side of your face now?

  5. Mad Dog says:

    Frist not First.

    Now we have a little family matter and its … KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS!

    Breaks my heart to see it happen.

    Robert Barker,

    Congratulations on your retirement. I am glad you will now be able to post your thoughts on PeachPundit. I’d be lying though if I didn’t tell you that you will be missed on the Price is Right.
