Rep. Sailor Resigns

I should hope so.

State Representative Ron Sailor Jr. pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges of money laundering.

Sailor was arrested in December and prosecutors said he has been cooperating with an “active public corruption investigation”.

    isn’t he also the guy who missed like 90% of his votes and there was once a controversy about whether or not he actually lived in his district?

    Well, no one can ever say that they paid for his vote…

    Wonder if Vernon is evolved in there anywhere.

    I’m pretty sure talking about the evolution of Vernon Jones will bring us into dangerous territory…..

    I would love to know if he’s been getting his salary as a legislator as well as any per diem during this session. He ought to have to pay it back, not just because of his absenteeism but also for his pending criminal charges. This is the type of charge that either you’re guilty of or not. He knew that this conviction was coming. Rather than allowing the people in his district to have their voices heard and be represented in the Legislature, he chose to bury his head in the sand.

    do the metro area legislators get a per diem–i would think that’s only for folks that have to spend the nite away from home to serve…

  6. CobbGOPer says:

    Every legislator gets the per diem, regardless of where they live.

    As for Mr. Sailer, I certainly agree he should pay some or all of it back for this session.

    What’s up with that family? Ron Sr. was such a standup guy as a newsman at WSB, and now he’s a preacher or pastor or something. How is it that his kids turn out to launder drug money and kill their girlfriends?

    “Bow and arrow. Very strange.”

    You make me laugh, Chris Farris.

    You amuse me.

    You are ha-ha funny.

    BANG!

    Is this the ‘other shoe dropping” story some ‘in-the-know’ bloggers @ godekalb.com have obliquely alluded to?
