My binder has details on this and also tells me that while the Attorney General’s office says it has no documents on this, the AG actually has a ton of stuff derived from it that we’ll see in the general election.
What am I talking about is this article from the AJC over the weekend that Mike Bowers, when still serving as Attorney General, launched an investigation into John Oxendine and passed it over to federal authorities. The feds did nothing with it.
Ox may claim that means he is in the clear, but he had no knowledge of the investigation at the time and just because the feds did not pursue it does not mean they had nothing.
In fact, I have heard that there is information relating to Oxendine that is not exactly great, that the Georgia Attorney General maintains information related to Oxendine, and we will see all this stuff trot out in the general election regardless of the GOP’s nominee to be used as a “party of corruption” weapon against the GOP.
One way or the other, the Democrats intend to use Oxendine to hit the GOP. They’d of course love it if he were the nominee. But they don’t really care.
