A memo obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows the governor was supplied an analysis that outlined the change before he signed House Bill 488 on April 12, 2005.
The memo to Perdue from Rebecca Sullivan, deputy executive counsel, recommends that the governor sign the measure, which also included many routine revisions to the state’s tax code.
This will no doubt change the outcome of the election…oh wait…
In all honesty, the land deal still confuses me more than a little bit, and there is plausible deniability on Governor Perdue’s part, but I think it kills any talk of SP being veep.
There are no clear (or even murky) answers and it does makes the whole affair more suspect.
