I had asked Andre a few weeks ago about him doing consulting work for David Scott after he put up the post on Deborah Honeycutt. I don’t remember seeing a response, but I did ask him to refrain from writing about those he might be working against.
In any event, there is news this morning about it.
Political blogger Andre Walker wrote dozens of blog items in favor of US Rep. David Scott (D-GA) this year but did not disclose to readers he was on Scottís payroll. Walker runs a blog called Georgia Politics Unfiltered and also is a blogger at Peach Pundit.
Previously, Walker had faced scrutiny in the local blogger community for failing to disclose at least $1200 in payments from the Vernon Jones for US Senate Campaign 2008. According to the FEC reports, Walker was doing legislative updates; according to Walker, he was maintaining a blog for Jones called “Jonesiní for Georgia.”
It is our policy at Peach Pundit to refrain from writing about candidates we are working for unless we disclose that we are working for him. I apologize that this one got by me. It won’t happen again.
