        You mean we make sure they say they’re pro-life and hate gays. Ironically, Nathan Deal should love gays, since without the gays, Karen Handel would be the nominee.

        I’ve known a couple of “pro-life” legislators over the years, who seemed to have a different take on abortion, once the pocket pregnancy test kit came back positive.

    I read a little blurb yesterday that DA Danny Porter acknowledged that normally when a person received a letter from the Grand Jury requesting an appearance for testimony the Grand Jury was considering an indictment.

    Porter DID NOT confirm the Grand Jury was considering an indictment in this particular case though.

    Now back to gay bashing.

    Maybe I’m being particularly dense this morning, but I’m trying “get” Galloway’s Ox tie-in joke to Bannister’s resignation. Galloway stated Gwinnett is Ox’s political base, which is not true, since Ox came in 4th in Gwinnett (which was essentially last). He did much better in other rural counties. Even if Gwinnett was Ox’s political base, I just don’t get the joke.

      Ox’s Dad, as a Sr. Judge, acted as a party to the negotiations and/or transactions on several of the land deals, which he is specifically prohibited from doing as a judge. As such, he resigned abruptly last year as this investigation gained steam.

        “First thought: Republicans must be breathing a sigh of relief that state Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, whose political base is Gwinnett, didn’t win that primary for governor.”

        yeah, we’re all thrilled with the saintly nominee chosen by the beckerhead voters. great observation there jimmy boy.

        Charlie,

        Wasn’t there also an allegation that daddy Ox mishandled some money for Warm Springs residents in a child/teen rehab program?

    I am going to miss Bannister as he insured the toxic waste flow of political self serving went from Fulton to DeKalb to Gwinnett, thank goodness he dug a deep trench to keep it going long after he is gone…..

    Too bad we can’t say that about deal as well as Bannister and several more of the Gwinnett Commissioners.
