This story won’t go away for Nathan Deal

More fodder.

A U.S. bankruptcy judge has ordered the reopening of a 2009 bankruptcy filing by Republican gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal’s daughter and son-in-law.

The bankruptcy stems from a failed sporting goods business started by Carrie Deal Wilder and her husband, Clint Wilder, that Deal invested in and left him with $2.1 million in debts.


  1. “This story won’t go away for Nathan Deal”

    Thanks to you and the other so called Republican PP posters. Why are you focusing on the portion of the story involving Nathan Deal’s daughter and son-in-law in any case?

    How about a story on Roy’s ownership of Croy Engineering which received millions in state contracts, his ownership of flea bag extended stay motels, his defense of pedophiles both convicted and alledged, or his lucky streak of fortune (nearly $17 million) since leaving the governor’s mansion. Nah, nothing interesting there.

    Let’s beat up our own. You are no better than Rove trashing our nominee in Delaware or other Republicans who have gone after Nikki Haley, Sarah Palin, or Joe Miller.

    • rightofcenter says:

      Or how about his lead role in trying to overturn the will of the people and the voter id law? Or his defense of Charles Walker? Or his shakedown of donors in his last (losing) election? No, it’s much more fun to give Nathan Deal a proctology exam.

      • Doug Grammer says:

        Or Gov. Barnes support of giving drivers licenses, (which can be used for ID to vote) to illegal immigrants?

    • Jeff says:

      So you support pedophiles being slapped on the wrist too?

      Show me something other than hyper-partisan Republican ramblings on Roy, PLEASE. I’m not a big fan of his, but IF it is Deal/Barnes in the runoff, I’ll be voting Barnes. Deal is simply too much of a weird combination of John Oxendine’s ethics with Ray McBerry’s denial of responsibility and reality.

        • Jeff says:

          No, Barnes wanted the Feds – who could bring the most pain down on the serial predator who crossed State lines – to handle it, rather than a podunk Sheriff who could only prosecute a small minority of the total number of victims.

          So Maurice and Doug… can I assume this is now a GOP position that pedophiles should be slapped on the wrist?

          • Doug Grammer says:


            You can use the word pedophile and “what position you want to be in” in the same sentence, I won’t. Barnes interfered in a criminal investigation. It was not his job to override the sheriff or defer to the feds. He can bring in the GBI, but he overstepped his authority.

          • I don’t remember nor would I respect any Republicans that defended Mark Foley when he was found to have had inappropriate “communications” that is e-mailing a 16 year old former House Page. He was asked by many to resign and did.

            • jm says:

              He was asked to resign AFTER the media found out. Before that, the House leadership, then Republican Majority, knew for about a year. Look, both parties have their crooks, but the rest of them need to clean House when they find this stuff out.

              Roll Call at the time fingered these guys as knowing about Foley before it became public:
              House Speaker Dennis Hastert (IL);
              Majority Leader John Boehner (Ohio);
              National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.);
              Reps. Rodney Alexander (La.)
              Rep. John Shimkus (Ill.)
              Mike Stokke, the Speaker’s deputy chief of staff
              Ted Van Der Meid, Hastert’s counsel
              Paula Nowakowski, Boehner’s chief of staff
              Jeff Trandahl, the former Clerk of the House

              That second name should raise eyebrows. He could be the next Speaker, and if he pulls this crap again, could make it the last time in a long time that Americans trust the GOP.

              • Doug Grammer says:

                They knew of a complaint or that it factually occurred? I’m really asking. I don’t know the answer. If you do, please provide a link. Thanks.

    Back to the subject of this post…although I am sure this re-opening of Clint Wilder’s 2001 bankruptcy will drag out past the November 3 election, it does provide an opportunity for Mr. Wilder to come clean, under penalty of perjury, about the degree of Nathan Deal’s knowledge of and/or involvement in either of the two bankruptcies. So we will perhaps know more in the future about all this mess, and if Deal is a sitting Governor, the story will be followed closely by the media.

  3. Three Jack says:

    in an ajc story this afternoon, raw deal is quoted as follows, “I have already answered those questions,” he told a reporter. “I am not going to get into their personal bankruptcy. I don’t think that is appropriate for you to do so. For you to drag family members into this kind of campaign is totally inappropriate.”

    perfect. place blame on the reporter for asking about a bankruptcy filing that should have included daddy deal’s name. then attack the reporter for daring to bring family into the campaign. what an arrogant ahole!

    • fishtail says:

      Three Jack…hang in there, as there are nearly 5 weeks to Election Day and things will change. There is still a laundry list of Deal’s screw-ups to come.

      • rightofcenter says:

        I would suggest you need to hurry up and release your dossier on Deal. People are voting every day – why would you wait? Every day you wait means Roy Barnes has that much of a bigger mountain to climb. Think of your duty, man!

    would allegedly bet the judge has ties to KING ROY. he’s that dirty and low down, to kick a man when hes down and to lie to the voters ”who do you want, DEAL OR ME?” Sorry KING ROY you sold out GA once, enriched your alleged self, sold the flag&teachers out I certainly don’t want another 4 years of you doing it to GA again. ”FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU, FOOL ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME.” Sorry KING ROY, I Don’t wish you back under the gold dome, it was like JIMMY CARTER redux.

  5. kolt473 says:

    King ROY’S alleged ”shady deals” toll monies ATLANTIC STATION PURCHASE, 25% ownership company with state business, sued GA ID LAW 2oo6, the old flag, the teachers King Roy&HARRY REID have something in common, scorched earth politics. wish they’ed allow posting of information so voters know the real KING ROY.
