Rep. Scott files complaint against Honeycutt


The campaign to re-elect U.S. Rep. David Scott (D-Ga) has what it believes is evidence that his Republican challenger, Deborah Honeycutt, failed to disclose the purchase of negative advertising tied to the Democrats for Good Government, an unregistered political committee based in Clayton County.

Honeycutt did not return calls Wednesday, but her husband, Andrew, who also is her campaign administrator did. He said the campaign has done nothing wrong and believes the FEC complaint filed by the Scott campaign is based on “unsubstantiated evidence.”


  1. Andre Walker says:

    Here’s what the Associated Press left out of their report:

    1.) That Deborah Honeycutt said she was unaware of the flier in question [Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution, “Non-incumbent raises $4.3 million for her campaign”, October 22, 2008]; and

    2.) An independent inquiry by the Clayton News-Daily confirmed that the production costs of the flier in question was billed to an address belonging to Andrew Honeycutt and D. Ann Travis, Deborah Honeycutt’s maiden name [Source: Clayton News-Daily, “Scott files FEC charges against Honeycutt’s campaign”, October 22, 2008].

    Rogue109 is right.

    Something still smells, but it is not griftdrift.

    This is really immature on Scott’s part. In 2006 Honeycutt got 30% of the vote, so Scott beat her by a 2-1 margin. Who wants to take the over on Honeycutt’s 30% with Obama on the ballot?
