Making Fayette County oh so proud

It’s clear that no shame is too large to keep Fayette County Commissioner Robert Horgan from resigning his seat after he was placed on 12 months’ probation after pleading no contest (under the First Offender Act) today to charges of misdemeanor possession of marijuana and expired tags.

Horgan declined to answer reporters’ questions about where he obtained the drugs. [His attorney] said Horgan didn’t buy the marijuana and that the circumstances under which he obtained it were “embarrassing.”

“He has no source for drugs in Fayette County,” [the attorney] said.

“Embarrassing,” eh? Talk about leaving more questions than answers! Maybe some more digging is necessary to identify the “embarrassing” circumstances where Horgan obtained said gonja. Pathetic.

  1. The only thing more embarrassing than getting caught with weed is admitting that you didn’t BUY it, you:
    A) swiped it from a cancer/glaucoma patient;
    B) won it on a game show, or
    C) found it in your Dave Matthews album.

    Is the picture right? Is “Pete Randall” really commenting on a white politician doing stupid things or did Erick just login using the wrong account again?

    So, for which crime should he be embarassed? I say expired tags; who’s stupid enough not to remember their birthday?

    The marijuana charge doesn’t bother me at all actually.

    When the insurance commissioner resigns from office for accepting $120,000 funneled by insurance companies he regulates through a series of Alabama-based PACs, then we can talk about a Fayette County commissioner who got caught with some weed and an expired tag. Unlike Pete, the rest of us can recognize which is the more serious offense.

      I’m pretty sure that’s not an actual rule.

          Throw in legalizing beating up gay Mexican people who have no respect for the 10th Amendment, the 2nd amendment, our “right” to hunt, and who want to force us to wear a seatbelt in a pickup truck and our state legislators could make it happen.

    Pete, for god’s sake, it’s marijuana and an expired tag! Lighhten up.

    The Dude’s personal life is a mess, but he can get it together.

    Speaking of marijuana, did you see the Little Five Points Halloween parade. A group resembling the Dude – sporting go-tees, bathrobes and riding Vespas were in the parade. No doubt with White Russians in hand. See picture here. ahttp://projects.accessatlanta.com/gallery/view/atlanta-holiday-guide/events/l5p-halloween-festival/nd
