AJC v. The Speaker

They have an editorial up here on the Speaker still demanding his divorce records be closed off from the world.

Now, several friends noted at the time of the divorce that it was perfectly reasonable for the judge to seal the documents until the 31 day waiting period for the divorce ran out.

We are well past that time now. It’s time for the records to be public.

    I picture the little minions at the AJC like those rats in the movie Willard in a carcass feeding frenzy…ah, life does imitate art!

    I really don’t know why people feel the need to see his divorce records. He’s got some young children and it’s a personal matter. Before folks start howling about special treatment, I don’t think anyone’s divorce records should be public – except in special circumstances. I don’t think one of the circumstances should be to satisfy the AJC’s / public’s need for juicy gossip.

    When are the REAL Republicans gonna vote themselves and us a new Speaker? This guy is an embarrassment. His arrogance and craze for power is so not what the GOP needs to be.

  6. Rpolitic says:

    Wow fulton righty huh. Well you are a rare breed and probably not real familiar with how the capitol works. The speaker is no more arrogant than say the Lite guv or the heavy guv or really pretty much any of the other folks who occupy those seats. The fact is it takes a ton of arrogance and huge balls to even put your name on a ballot, a set of attributes that I currently lack.

    But what my guess is for your real objection is not that you are looking for “real Republicans” but more whiney duplicatous folks like the lite guv, heavy guv and our current U.S. Senator up for election.

    Spare us the righteous indignation from a county that has yet to get it right.

    Even when divorce records are accessible to the public, only the snake oil empty suits use divorce records to take down a candidate or office holder…Unless there is a related criminal charge.

    “only the snake oil empty suits use divorce records to take down a candidate or office holder…”

    Oh come on. They’re public records for a reason. I’m told that there’s a candidate for Henry County’s board of commissioners whose divorce records show that he was once married to two women at once. Do you think the voters shouldn’t have access to this information when they’re selecting their leaders?

  9. Ms_midtown says:

    “married to two women at once”
    Polygamy, illegal.
    This should be a campaign issue.

    It’s not a matter of what is public, but what is chosen to use as an issue against someone. Divorce records could reveal very personal, damaging information to an innocent spouse, in-laws, a medical condition, such as incurable impotence.
    Using non-criminal events from divorce records says more about the person using it, than the person listed in the record.

  10. SouthFultonGuy says:

    Since we don’t have access to the records, we do not know if the divorce has criminal elements now do we?

  11. HankRearden says:

    Rpolitic (r trim) everyone told me you were an idiot. Your blind support of a tiranical Speaker supports others claims on you. No one here will say that our good Gov is perfect, not even close. Glenn has to go by what ever means neccessary. If people support him blindly just because you live on that side of the state or you actually think the way he thinks then our Republic is in real trouble. Wake up it is not to late.

  12. Ms_midtown says:

    Go ahead check the divorce, criminal records, hire private investigators, bring down your political opponents by any means necessary.
    I am a Democrat too, just remember personal destruction always works both ways.

  13. The Comma Guy says:

    How about if those divorce records show that the Speaker hasn’t been completely forth-coming about the sources of his income or his residency? Aren’t those things worthy of public scrutiny?
