The answer is when that “Democrat” gets a check from a Republican and proceeds to set up a web page attacking another Democrat.
The self-proclaimed “Democrat” (and I say that because no one associated with the Democratic Party of Georgia, the state Democratic committee, the county Democratic committees, or any Democratic affiliates in this state are claiming this guy is a Democrat) in question is a man by the name of David Knox.
Knox, according FEC campaign disclosure reports, received $250 from Republican Deborah Honeycutt for “website maintenance” in February of 2007. On his company’s website, www.dkintermedia.com, Knox touts his work on Honeycutt’s 2006 campaign web page (I remember Honeycutt’s website from 2 years ago and honestly. . .that ain’t nothing to be bragging about).
However, if you let David Knox tell it, he’s a “registered Democrat” although there is no party registration in Georgia. He works part time for the government (I’m sure the feds would love to take a look at that relationship). And finally, David Knox owns and operates two websites, www.democratsforgoodgoverment.com and www.voteoutdavidscott.com, which constantly and consistently savages 13th district Congressman David Scott.
Here is David Knox in his own unedited or proofread words:
Over the past couple of weeks I as the Leader of Democrats For Good Goverment have received several phone calls and emails from people posing to be news reporters and supporters of the Democrats all asking questions about this website (DemocratsForGoodGovernment.com) and the flyers we are passing out.
We are sick and tired of bullies and cowards who hide behind news reporter for the AJC – Ben Smith and Clayton New Daily- Joel Hall who profess that a story is being published but never show up in any paper.
Everyone is making a mad attempt to link this website and this organization to a republican candidate when we clearly state this is “Democrats For Good Government” are they blind or just stupid?
Well let’s see. . . we have a person who lists a Republican congressional candidate’s website in his company’s portfolio. We have a person who had some sort of relationship with that same Republican for at least a year maybe longer. And we have a person who, as recently as February 2007, received funds from that Republican congressional candidate, Deborah Honeycutt, for “website maintenance.”
It’s blatantly obvious that David Knox is not a Democrat just from the facts that are on the table. I know no Democrat who would take money from a Republican then turn around and set up an allegedly pro-Democratic web page that attacks Democrats.
It makes no sense and it’s not logical.
