It is clear the Senate Republicans are discombobulated what with Casey Cagle unable to tie his shoes and demanding people respect his authority a la Cartman.
But the matter of Jack Murphy is ridiculous. The issue is not that there is a civil lawsuit against Jack Murphy.
The issue is that of over 300 failed banks in the nation and 56 in Georgia, only three nationwide are being sued and Murphy’s is one of them. Further, the nature of the suit disqualifies Murphy from sitting on the board of any bank anywhere.
People get sued all the time. That’s not the issue. The issue is the nature of this suit and the fact that the FDIC is not going around willy-nilly suing all the failed banks — just three.
Consequently, I’m going to be using my radio show and RedState’s action center to rally Georgians to call their state senators to remove Jack Murphy until the matter is resolved.
You can go to http://action.redstate.com, click the top link, and find your State Senator. Call and tell him or her that Jack Murphy needs to relinquish the chairmanship of the banking committee until this matter is resolved.
Oh, and tell them to back Tommie Williams against Casey Cagle while you are at it.
