Charles Walker still guilty.

As usual, Walker played the race card:

In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Walker’s claim that the trial judge improperly reinstated four white men as potential jurors after Walker’s defense team had used their strikes to eliminate them from the jury pool.

    As I have learned over the years, racism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, and Walker just proves the point. Sad, sad.

    Chuck Walker and Roy Barnes were as BFF as ‘ya can get when Walker served as Roy’s floor leader in the state senate. Someone please tell me how Roy did not know Walker was up to all of this illegal [email protected]#? Either he didn’t know and was unacceptably clueless, or he knew, and looked the other way as long as Chuck brought in Augusta area votes.

    Track,

    Honestly, I doubt Roy knew. “BFF” does not mean tell your BFF everything you’re doing illegally.

    Barnes ruled like a brutal SOB, but I cannot remember any act in which he displayed a tendency to be corrupt.

    Walker, on the other hand, was pathologically corrupt.

    i gathered from my time in augusta that it was almost a necessity to be so if you were to have much success in local politics there…
