Deal’s Financial Woes

From the AJC:

 In the midst of his campaign for governor, Nathan Deal faces such dire financial troubles that he must sell his home to avert foreclosure or bankruptcy.

Even if Deal liquidates all his assets, however, he still might be unable to repay a nearly $2.3 million business loan, documents reviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution indicate. The loan comes due in full Feb. 1 — less than one month after Deal hopes to take office.

Deal’s troubles center on a failed business venture by his daughter and son-in-law. Deal and his wife, Sandra, invested about $2 million, but lost their entire stake when the business failed. The Deals also guaranteed a series of bank loans to the business as its debt doubled and then quadrupled.

Finally, the daughter and her husband declared bankruptcy, leaving the Deals solely responsible for an obligation that exceeds the net value of everything they own.

In a statement late Tuesday, the campaign said: “Like most Americans, Nathan Deal has suffered financial losses over the last four years. He has obligations, and he will meet them.”

    I’m always amazed by the poor financial decisions that people make when they get involved with family.

    • B Balz says:

      “Conditions are inviting, we got a great deal, and my daughter will be there to make sure things go well.” Every visionary, every entrepreneur, anyone in business knows all too well the risk/reward formula.

      Instead of castigating the man for this, I think one could easily make a case for free enterprise. If the place was making money hand-over-fist, some might say he used his influence to unfairly compete.

  2. SFrazier says:

    These are tough times, but the important thing to note here is that Nathan Deal will sacrifice and meet his financial obligations.

  3. chefdavid says:

    I doubt this will have any effect on the election (coming out to late). With voting starting Monday, the Deal TV spot will resonate louder than this. Those who were posed to vote against him will still vote against him.
    Those who vote Republican will still vote Republican.

  4. hugoblacksupreme says:

    This is sad, but will not make a difference in the election. We will have a person with questionable ethics that is deeply in debt as our next Gov. Sad, real sad.

    So, when will he be getting his Sonny Perdue style loan?

  5. Debra says:


      • rightofcenter says:

        “Lady” Thinker –
        You are full of it. You wouldn’t vote for Deal if your life depended on it, and you were that way on day one after he beat Handel. Nothing he has done since or that you have learned since has changed that one iota.

        • Lady Thinker says:

          When one does not have an argument, one resorts to belitting others and name calling. Voters threw away viable candidates and crooked and corrupt deal has a chance to throw Georgia further down the toliet, which in my opinion, he will.

          Just because I am a Republican doesn’t mean I am required to vote the least qualified as well as currently under investigation candidate into office. In essence, you are right, nothing he has done since or that I have learned since has changed that one iota, it has only proven that deal is not the candidate our party needs.

  6. DoubleDawg3 says:

    Why should this be given any effect by the voters? Essentially, he owes a debt – a debt which has not yet matured (and is not a judg(e)ment – an extra (e) for those who followed CD 9 race – in which bank loans were also an issue). He’s got properties for sale that would cover most of the debt, likely has accounts / investments to cover the remainder — then he’s just like every other Georgian, out of debt, but with little in the bank. Is that bad? His salary as Governor would more than cover the mortgage on his Habersham Co. cabin, and I imagine that’s his “retirement” spot after leaving public office.

    Nothing to see here, move along. If we get into March 2011 and it isn’t paid off – then it might be newsworthy.

  7. DoubleDawg3 says:

    How many of you owe money on your mortgage, credit card bills, vehicle, etc.? If you’re mad at Nathan Deal, why…you’re in the exact same situation (you owe a debt).

    As long as you’re making your payments on time – there’s nothing even remotely wrong about it.

    • Rick Day says:

      My business is growing and my Daddy is not a Congressman.

      If many engage in bad behavior, then it’s ok for our leadership to do so as well? And how many people commit murder each year? Is it OK to commit murder because so many people do it each day?
      Come on…faulty logic is faulty!

      Fifteen years ago, there was great shame in being in debt to the point of bankruptcy. Men flung themselves from buildings in shame.

      That all changed with Reaganomics™.

      “Higher Standard” etc? Can’t you hold your leaders to that? I’d rather have a candidate who has made $1 million a year for 25 years than one who couldn’t see a bad Deal *smirk* if his own daughter laid it on him?

      Fear: it drives your instincts. To the point you would support a murderer, if he was running against a ‘lib’rl’.

      • B Balz says:

        GOP fear seems to be a rallying point for libs. “cons are consumed by fear, they need an enemy to survive, etc.”

        Basic human nature dictates one of the most effective motivators is fear, uncertainty, and doubt. (Fight/Flight)

        So what?

        I agree the higher standard bar MUST be upheld, by all Pols, in either Party. Granted, a few GOP lawmakers acted on hubris and were shown the door. I don’t believe the GOP won’t lose this thing based on the actions of a few bad actors.

        The question is will new and seasoned lawmakers rise to the economic, water, transportation challenges we face?

        HINT: Redistricting is NOT the biggest issue we face in Georgia.

  8. NorthGeorgiaGirl says:

    This makes me sad, not mad. His mistake was trying too hard to help his daughter and son in law, nothing corrupt to see here. I cannot imagine how hard this makes the family relationships that the whole family has lost so much money on this.

    This just goes to show why you should never co-sign a loan unless you are prepared to write it all off as a loss.

    How many people make the same mistake on a smaller scale co-signing for a child who wants a car or a house and doesn’t qualify? This just makes him more human, a typical dad who wants to help his child.

  9. hugoblacksupreme says:

    Ok. He will most likely still win. But, some of you people are going to drown in Kool-aid if you don’t come up for air.

    This is simple: Questionable ethics + piles of debt = ??????

    The difference between Deal and the average Georgian in that he has been in public office for the last 18 years and aspires to the highest office in Georgia.

    • Joshua Morris says:

      Exactly who is questioning his ethics? They only become questionable if the source of allegations has any merit.

        • ChiefofStaff65 says:


          For all of your rambling about who knows what, if your such a passionate person, why do you hide behind a moniker?

          The people on here who really put their views out here do not hide behind a fasad. It is only folks like you, who rant, rave and spew general nonsense that must hide behind a creative name.

          I may not always agree with John Konop, but at least he uses his real name.


        • Joshua Morris says:

          …more like a gong.

          All they have is a bunch of ‘may have’ statements that are unsubstantiated. I could do that against any member of Congress.

    • GOPwits says:

      AMEN. Some people are going to have to check in to rehab from drinking the Kool Aid. It’s sad. Some of this crap is from some of the same people who didn’t support McCain because he wasn’t conservative enough, but yet we’re supposed to support Deal because he’s what? I’m waiting for the answer to it. Because he just has an R by his name? Because his name isn’t Roy?

      I honestly am beginning to believe that Roy is more fiscally conservative and maybe socially conservative than Nathan Deal.

  10. Progressive Dem says:

    Are these the actions and judgements of a fiscal conservative???

    I love my children, too and will help them TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE. That does not include the option of me risking the home, life savings and credit rating that my wife and I have accumulated. That’s just stupid for everyone. He’s certainly no fiscal conservative with his own money. This is poor judgement on his part.

  11. Three Jack says:

    no wonder he was so worried about losing the cushy deal with the ga dor.

    nice job all you diehard gopers…you really picked a winner here.

  12. John Konop says:

    At the end of the day Deal has very good retirement and healthcare plan paid by tax payers for life. It looks like his kid lost an inheritance on the transaction. And why not give your kid a chance since it had no real effect on his life style. With the retirement money from congress this should not have any real effect via cash-flow on his lfe style other than housing for a short time period.

    If he becomes Governor he can double dip the government retirement plans and have a very healthy retirement. If he does not win Deal can become a Lobbyist and with his retirement from congress, and still do very well.

    From a fincial standpoint Deal is not in bad shape. From a personal standpoint family…..this is a tough situation. And I do think it is fair game to attack his family.

    As far as questioning the investment and leaving the bank and eventually tax payers holding the bag with a bankruptcy is not simple. Many smart business people and office holders have filed bankruptcy on bad investments. I do not think this business deal should be a make break decision on voting for Deal. And the government guarantees on the banks, loans, deposits….is a structural issue.

    • Progressive Dem says:

      “It looks like his kid lost an inheritance on the transaction.”
      His kids lost an inheritance. He has 3 daughters and x grandchildren. The family dynamics must be brutal. That was another thing he risked.

      “And why not give your kid a chance since it had no real effect on his life style.” First, it is a pretty big stretch to say that losing $4 million and being forced to sell your principal residence doesn’t have a real effect. Since he has a government supplied safety net, he’s not out on the street, but that’s a big hit. Second, there is a difference from being generous with your children an giving them more than you can afford. He went way too far, and now the child is bankrupt and he is financially ruined at 70 something. I can’t see excusing this example of bad judgement.

      • John Konop says:

        Progressive Dem,

        I am not rationalizing and or judging his behavior. But a 6 figure retirement with a great healthcare plan is not a person in fincial ruin. You realize a person would need 2 to 4 million dollars to pay for this in retirement at the current interest rate levels with taking risk of capital. And he has many opportunities to make extra money.

        • polisavvy says:

          John, you know that he was not my choice for Governor. Yes, he does have many opportunities. He may be in a dire condition on paper; but, he’s not going to hurt for life. Too bad that I get the impression that some are actually enjoying the misery of another. Sad state of affairs. Who knows? Perhaps Trent Lott could use another lobbyist if he fails to win the election.

  13. Glen Ross says:

    Guys with personal financial issues are a problem and the GOP has a couple. I wish the Congressman the best in working this out, but this worries me for one big reason. Essentially, he NEEDS this job. Guys who NEED these jobs tend to be less worried about doing what’s right, and more worried about maintaining that salary. That is a bad characteristic in a politician. I was fine with Nathan Deal despite his baggage b/c I thought he still represented the interest of conservatism. Now, I worry that is not the case.

    • CobbGOPer says:

      So many jobs nowadays won’t hire you if you have bad credit. Good thing Nathan’s running for Governor, eh? I have problems with someone who will basically be financially insolvent holding the highest position of influence and power in the state. It’s a recipe for massive corruption.

    • DoubleDawg3 says:

      Oh, I don’t think Nathan “needs” that job…I’m sure he could go join any number of major Atlanta law firms, ala Buddy Darden, and get a salary much larger than the Governor’s salary.

      I would argue that Roy Barnes has clearly proven it’s far more lucrative to be out of public office than in it (but now that he’s made his retirement nest egg, he wants back in).

      Besides, I think if Nathan wins, he’s going to do what he feels he needs to do to move the state forward (even if it might cost him a few voters) b/c once he’s in, who is going to challenge him in 2014 – Kasim Reed / Shirley Franklin? The Dems have no serious challenger if Roy Barnes loses this race.

      • kyleinatl says:

        Agreed on your last point, other than Barnes, there isn’t another electable state-wide Dem…besides, it’s fairly obvious that Kasim is holding out for a John Lewis retirement.

      • GOPwits says:

        DoubleDawg3 you don’t make sense. Obviously based on facts, Deal needs this job. He can’t financially remain solvent without this job. He has lived since 1982 on special favors from the legislature and government and this is no different. At least Roy has made money in the PRIVATE SECTOR.

        I would rather have a Governor who learned from their mistakes, was successful in the private sector without benefit from government than someone who has never been self sufficient and only become successful because of government.

        • DoubleDawg3 says:

          GOPwits, are you a freaking idiot? What do you think pays MORE…being Governor of Georgia, or being an “Of Counsel” attorney to McKenna Long, Troutman or K&S in Atlanta? I can GUARANTEE you that the legal position would pay deal at least $250K per year, if not more (why the heck do you think Zell Miller is “of counsel” to McKenna- to have the name on stationery, that’s it).

          Deal will bring in over $100K next year (and every year) just from his Congressional pension, not to mention the $ his salvage yard makes (gov’t contract or not)…so it’s not like the man’s a pauper and is in desperate need of the HUGE (sad with a ton of sarcasm) salary that comes from being Gov.

          Heck, look at how profitable life after public service was for Barnes…if Deal really needed money, he’d go that route and make a killing.

          • GOPwits says:

            Really? There is a huge difference between a Zell Miller and a Nathan Deal. One did big things for Georgia, the other Georgia did big things for them.

            Figure it out.

            • DoubleDawg3 says:

              I’m not knocking Zell Miller – he was one of the greatest Governors in the entire US (of all time – as Kanye West would say). Just saying, he cashed in after leaving office…sure Deal could too, if he wanted /needed to.

  14. Three Jack says:

    john, with this situation certainly requiring a considerable amount of time to workout, why would deal run for governor? this proves his total lack of character and absolute disregard for ga voters, especially his friends in the gop.

    • John Konop says:

      Three Jack,

      I would think the time would be more tied up by his lawyer not him. As far as the PR issue you maybe right. I am only looking at the transaction and if I see it as disqualifier for anyone holding office. In my opinion this issue would have no effect on my vote. In fairness, I am much more of an independent than you.

      • Three Jack says:

        john, if you read the ajc story, it is clear that deal himself has already spent considerable time with this mess. he is likely to spend even more as the deadline approaches.

        taken by itself, this may not be a deal breaker. but in combination with his other ethically challenged activities and voting record, it’s time for deal to retire.

    • GOPwits says:

      Well Three Jack, he is running for Governor because he needs a place to live and he needs the power to be able to sway a bank out there to give him a loan to cover these expenses. It’s sad that our state has stooped to this level.

      4 years of Roy Barnes will at least clean the pallet for a real conservative leader in 2014.

  15. Three Jack says:

    most businesses faced with such huge losses also have tax delinquency issues. hard to imagine how an operation incurring such heavy losses could stay current on state and fed tax obligations.

      • Three Jack says:

        correct chuck, but the government does expect to be paid employee withholding and sales taxes no matter the level of income generated by a private business. the other shoe will drop soon enough, bet on it.

    • John Konop says:

      Three Jack,

      You are right. Businesses like this usually do not have federal income tax issues. They usually have FICA and state sales tax issues. This is one of the flaws I pointed out about the math behind the Fair Tax.

      The current breakage rate was not factored in properly and if you add a 32 cent on a dollar tax on a transaction you will see this problem on steroids.

      • ChuckEaton says:

        The business is in the process of paying back the loan, if the business is behind on paying FICA or sales tax, which there is no reason to suspect this, any Federal and State tax liens get paid first.

        • John Konop says:

          Most retail business I have seen that filed bankruptcy usually owe FICA and sales tax. As far as who gets paid and what is why the lawyers have a job. The issues can get fairly complicated based on lien notice issues and timing of payments.

        • John Konop says:

          Also the sales tax lien is for money and assists related to the business. I am fairly sure a private property pledge unrelated to the business by a co-signer for a note, the IRS or state of Georgia would not have any rights. Once again none of us know how the deal was structured and that is why bankruptcy lawyers make the BIG BUCKS!

          • ChuckEaton says:


            You make a good point. If Nathan Deal loaned money to a business (either directly or indirectly by a pledge), you can’t hold him responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business.

            I have to defer to you on bankrupt businesses usually owing witholding and sales tax, since you have more experience in that arena, but you can’t hold Deal responsible for the actual business.

      • ChuckEaton says:

        This whole story makes me uncomfortable. I have a personal friend in a very similar situation to Nathan Deal’s. He pledged assets for a family member to start a business, then the economy fell apart. The problem compounded when the assests he pledged devalued with the economic downturn. He’s a very bright man and had a load of success in the business world.

        It’s unprecedented economic times. A candidate who tries to be judgmental on this issue risks it boomeranging back right between the eyes.

  16. peachstealth says:

    Harry Truman declared bankruptcy when his haberdashery failed in the recession of 1922. That’s when he decided to get into politics.
    This will only hurt Deal with people who weren’t going to vote for him anyway.

  17. TPNoGa says:

    I am not a Deal fan, but this doesn’t make me feel any more negative about him. It’s obvious to me that he was trying to help his family. That should be considered a positive. Obviously, he knew the risk and made the decision to guarantee the loan. It failed, he is on the hook and it appears he is trying to meet his obligation. At least he didn’t go running to the government to bail him out. Family first…..good for him!

    I tell you, Barnes had better tread very carefully on this issue. From what I can tell, people in these parts don’t take too kindly to attacking others’ families. If Barnes chooses to use this misfortune as an attack ad, it could very well blow up in his face and waste that $1 million the DGA just gave him.

    I am still undecided in this race, but Barnes will lose a lot of points if he uses this.

    • polisavvy says:

      I was not a Deal fan (and, still am not that crazy about him); however, his financial worries will probably resonate with the voters who are also facing similar problems. Not many people are in debt for $4 million; however, many are facing foreclosure and bankruptcy themselves. People know that politicians are almost literally torn apart with attack ads and negative comments — some voters may vote for him because they actually feel his pain and know that someone will try to capitalize on his misfortune. Barnes could alienate voters who will find what he did to help our his family a very noble thing. This is a slippery slope that should be treated as such.

      • TPNoGa says:

        Everything I’ve heard from people who actually know him, Barnes seems like a very good and decent person, so I hope that side of him wins out.

        These are very tough times and many people are facing foreclosure. It isn’t what happens to us that determines our character, but how we react. The fact that he is attempting to sell his home and other assets to meet the obligation says a lot to me. There have been stories of people not paying their mortgages and using the “savings” of no payments to finance new cars and trips around the world. Sounds like Deal is sacrificing his financial comfort because he helped out his daughter. How can anyone criticize that?

        • polisavvy says:

          Agreed. On a much smaller scale, my husband and I cashed out a considerable amount of our “future” when we decided to help our son with college tuition. Parents will sacrifice a lot for their children, if they are good and decent parents. Unfortunately, as you have already seen here, people seem happy to criticize him and actually seem to be enjoying his misery. As I said to John Konop, a “sad state of affairs.”

          • Rick Day says:

            Barnes should do an ad, outlining some vague plan on how he will enact legislation that will help ‘financially strapped Georgia Families” and use Deal’s situation (without naming him by name, of course) as an example of how, as Gov of GA, he will save families like the Deals.


      • GOPwits says:

        Does it not concern you that the average citizen would have never qualified for the loan in the first place had not the person asking for the loan was a Member of Congress? Standard practices generally require more collateral than that was submitted for this loan.

        I’m sorry for the family, but seriously, enough is enough. You can’t have a double standard just because you have an R behind your name instead of a D.

        This is getting pretty darn preposterous and I’m wondering why the Tea Party people are being so quiet on this one, yet they attacked other conservatives over much more smaller less intrusive and big government issues.

  18. Ron Daniels says:

    But what about that lucrative state contract and all that money Deal was hiding?

    Deal isn’t made of Teflon, but it’s hard to stick things like this to him when these attacks come from opposite ends of the spectrum. (He’s filthy rich vs. he’s bankrupt)

    This just makes the prior accusations look petty and unwarranted. Deal’s going to walk out of this alright. More people are closer to Deal’s situation financially than they are close to Barnes’ millions.

    • I’m so tired of arguing with idiots. I have wanted to chime into this thread all day, but just figured it would be a waste of time responding to the 10-12 people that seem to be on PP at any given time these days.

      I will just simply say ditto every time you make one of your insightful comments Ron. This is what I was thinking also. Your posts (and comments) are simple and usually right on the money.

    • GOPwits says:

      Okay Ron, than, I’d like to submit a list of people who need special loans like this and see what happens to them… No bank practicing sound business would make a loan like this. When are conservatives going to stand up and say enough is enough?

      • rightofcenter says:

        You don’t know what a bank would do – you have no idea how it was presented, the business plan, the source of payback, the appraisal value, none of that. So STFU. Enough is enough.

          Good analysis. Spacey says things, I think intentionally (giving her the benefit of the doubt), that don’t make any sense, then acts as if she’s on some higher plane of intellect, as if we are all too stupid to comprehend her humor.

  20. GOPwits says:

    How in the world does any economic conservative keep a straight face and encourage anyone to vote for Nathan Deal?

    The man can’t run his Congressional Office without getting hit by the Ethics Committee. He’s under investigation for using his Congressional Office to further his non-compete title inspection business. And now we find out he had sweetheart loan deals to prop up a business for his children and is facing bankruptcy. Seriously? Is that the leadership Georgia needs right now in this crisis?

    No it’s not. Either call on Deal to step aside as the nominee or just go ahead and vote for 4 years of Roy Barnes to lead Georgia until we can fix this primary mistake in 2014.

    • CobbGOPer says:

      I concur. As I’ve said before, I’d rather have Barnes as Governor kept in check by a republican state legislature (ignoring for the moment the fact that so many of those folks are corrupt as well and really need to go too) then Deal at the reigns doing whatever he can to line his and his family’s pockets through the state.

      • GOPwits says:

        I agree CobbGOPer. I think that given all the facts, Barnes would be best for Georgia given that it’s just 4 years and there would be a GOP House and Senate to keep him in check. Perhaps Barnes will be a check on their own corruption too and some of the so called GOP leaders will step up and quietly push out some of the more egregious ethical offenders from the party.

        We just can’t trust Deal with the truth. He hid and is still hiding the extent of his own personal financial mess and that’s just not a distraction that Georgia’s Governor needs in this economic climate.

  21. rightofcenter says:

    Of course you concur CobbGOPer, you and GOPnitwit have been leading the cheers against Deal for the last few months. Consequently, neither of you has the credibility of PeeWee Herman. As for nitwit, you are so full of BS that it is ridiculous. The factual errors in your post are laughable, even if hyperbole was your goal. As for “the sweetheart loan deals” – yeah, that’s some sweetheart loan deal: personally cosign this note so you can become personally liable for 2 million dollars . Idiot.

    • GOPwits says:

      Really? You do not understand the fact that the collateral did not meet the standard for a traditional loan? I’m sorry that this happened to the family, but they would not have gotten this sweetheart loan had the father, Nathan Deal, not been a Member of Congress. So call me nitwit all you want.

  22. 5thGenerationGOP says:

    All my life I’ve supported Republicans because they were fiscal conservatives.

    Now we’re asked to vote for the Republican candidate for Governor because he lost millions on a startup sporting good store with no track record in Gainesville and needs public housing.

    We may not like Roy Barnes, cut at least he won’t be tempted to sell the silverware from the Governor’s mansion to pay personal creditors.

    How very sad.

  23. This is bad news for Nathan Deal and his wife, but it is not a mortal wounding of his campaign. It’s more like a flesh wound. Meanwhile Barnes is praying for a serious infection.

      • rightofcenter says:

        That’s the stupidest line of argument of the night. There is absolutely no correlation. When are you Barnes supporters going to start talking about something that really matters in this race – like issues, and like Roy Barnes’ record when he was terminated as governor before?

  24. WJM1776 says:

    First – I am still looking for a definitive answer (from Mr. Deal) as to the congressional ethics charges. It would be unfair to assume guilt – however, I generally have heard responses along the lines of “I did nothing wrong” and “I am not under investigation.” That’s good – both of those facts would clearly allow Mr. Deal to simply let us know the truth of the matter.

    Second – There is a lot to be said for helping out one’s family and (as a father of more than one daughter) it is sometimes difficult to turn down a request from your little girl. However, life as Governor of this state and during these economic times is about hard choices and telling multiple (worthy) constituencies “No.” Public service and character go hand in hand – I think it speaks well of Mr. Deal’s character that he is willing to go to such lengths to help a family member (I really don’t think it is reasonable to paint this as a money-making scheme). However, I think it speaks poorly of Mr. Deal’s judgement in guaranteeing this level of funding for such a poor business decision. No – he is not the only person in the state to have made a poor business decision … however, he is the only Republican nominee for governor of this great state and this does subject him to a higher standard.

    Setting aside the judgement issue for one moment, there is the issue of risk. Specifically, do we want a governor that is subject to significant financial pressure? Fraud investigators will tell you that people commit fraud when there is need, opportunity, and rationalization (see A situation like this creates need. A governor of any state, and particularly a powerful state such as Georgia, has opportunity. I would like to believe that Mr. Deal’s ethics are such that he would not rationalize inappropriate behavior. However, this brings me back to my first issue above.

    I apologize for such a long post but I just find these issues concerning – thoughts?

    Does it make sense that politicians can get into office with bad credit while the rest of us can’t even get a decent job if our credit is bad?

  26. Doug Deal says:

    One good thing about all of this. If he is elected governor, at least they can’t repossess the Governor’s mansion, so he will at least have a place to live rent free. I guess the state also pays the electricity too, so no need to buy those Coleman’s kerosine laterns for the long winter nights.

    Also, can you garnish the Governor’s salary?
