Sending out a press release *after* getting clobbered at the polls defining yourself and beating up your opponent for daring to
win run aggressively.
Nancy Schafer has a case of sour grapes.
Her press release is below the fold.
In the recent political campaign for the senate seat in the 50th District, Jim Butterworth charged that Senator Nancy Schaefer claimed to be endorsed by Governor Sonny Perdue. Senator Schaefer did not make that claim. She used a statement that he
had made and the Governor confirmed he had indeed
Next, Jim Butterworth charged that Senator Nancy Schaefer claimed that she was endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and that the NRA denied endorsing her. The NRA endorsed Senator Nancy Schaefer in 2006 and the endorsement
has been on her website www.senatornancyschaefer.com since
that date. She did not ask the NRA to endorse her again in 2008. Senator Nancy Schaefer has had a long standing relationship with the NRA and it’s many members and she has been a member of the organization for years. Senator Nancy Schafer also has a friendship with Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America (GOA) and was endorsed by the GOA in 2006 and that endorsement has been on her website since 2006 also.
Senator Nancy Schaefer is pro-gun. She has written many articles and commentaries on the importance of upholding the Second Amendment.
Senator Schaefer’s campaign suffered “top-down” intervention that brought about these untrue and unfounded charges.
It appears Senator Schaefer’s coming against an agency, as powerful and with as much funding as Child Protective Services (CPS) or the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), as she did in the last session of the Georgia General Assembly and seeking investigations into the corruption of CPS/DFSC, rendered her a target for political loss by the “powers that be”.
There are many good people who have had their political careers ended because they attempted to expose government agency corruption.
Senator Nancy Schaefer has fought on the front lines for families, faith, and freedom for 25 years. She was the Founder and President of Family Concerns, Inc. before becoming a State Senator in Georgia.
Senator Schaefer stands by her record and will not allow it to be distorted with falsehoods and innuendos.
