From a Handel release refuting all of Oxendine’s nonsensical attacks:
“John Oxendine is the most corrupt politician in Georgia’s history and is far more likely to serve a term in prison than he is to serve as Governor.”
Yep. I think that’s true.
For the life of me, I cannot understand what Oxendine supporters see in the man. From Wellpoint to the trips to LA to all the pay-to-play business, to what insurance executives have to say about the man, etc., it’s just has always struck me the man is one ankle bracelet away from mandatory checkins with a parole officer.
Yet he has attracted a following beyond just being the longest serving statewide Republican. Some people actually think he deserves to be Governor for that. Others think he deserves it on other merits.
I just don’t see.
By the way, quick question for the Ox — according to the binder, Ox approached Ralph Reed and the GA-GOP shortly after the 2002 elections and suggested the GOP begin distancing itself from the Christian right and, in particular, pro-life issues, in order to expand its voter base.
True? Cause it isn’t just the binder with that information.
