…And that’s why she’s against the city of Dunwoody.
Yesterday, I was listening to the debate on S.B.82 and I almost died laughing when state Rep. Chambers took the House floor and said, “Jill Chambers, you’ve slept with Vernon Jones; that’s why you don’t support the City of Dunwoody.”
Now I know it isn’t funny to make light of a situation where someone’s reputation and character is being sullied, but sometimes you do have to laugh at some of the stuff that people come up with over the internet. Apparently some bloggers (not me or any of the esteemed folks here at Peach Pundit) have savaged Chambers over her opposition to what would become Georgia’s newest city by spreading slanderous filth like that.
There’s a way to disagree without being disagreeable and the fact that Jill Chambers had to speak publicly about internet fairy tales shows that some of the proponents of the city of Dunwoody are both disagreeing and being disagreeable. I think that both sides of the Dunwoody cityhood issue should do as Joe Friday said and stick to “Just the facts, ma’am.” No personal attacks; no salacious rumors about who’s sleeping with who; just the facts.
Now, on a slightly related note, who wants to bet that the Georgia Gang’s Dick Williams will have something to say about this on his show Sunday?
