Grandmother Attempts Assassination of Terry Coleman

Well . . not really.

For those of you who do not remember Terry Coleman, he served as Speaker of the House for the State of Georgia and was a Member of the Georgia House of Representatives for over thirty years. He stepped down shortly afterwards and in 2007 he was appointed Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture.

Now Terry is running for Labor Commissioner, attempting to fill the void left by US Senate hopeful Thurmond. Now thankfully no one was hurt in this accident, but you have to admit you do not hear about voters running into campaign offices very often. I wonder if she was a tea partier?

Yvonne Wright Bivins, age 78, of Cochran, told Eastman Police Chief Becky Sheffield that she was pulling into the parking space in front of Terry Coleman’s office and could not get the car to stop.

Bivins car busted through the wall and window into the office area of Coleman’s building.

According to the police report, no one was in the office at the time of the accident. The accident happened on Wednesday, June 16 at approximately 9:38 a.m.

    I am not sure this is the issue, but many people as they get older are dangerous on the road. Should we require re-testing at a certain age?

    • Go Dawgs! says:

      Depends. How many incidents of older Americans who have run their car into ANY fixed object have occurred as a percent of the total people who leave the road and run their cars into fixed objects?

      Do the research, John. Maybe Mark Foley has those statistics already laid-out for you.

      Doesn’t matter. We’ve built communities in which it is essential to have transportation. Until we develop an alternative, we have to live with whatever the danger is.
