WAGA Fox5 Atlanta ran the following story, claiming that Governor Nathan Deal has paid $90,000 to a previously unknown company that has ties to his daughter, Southern Magnolia Capital.
Records of the company appear to be designed to obfuscate ownership and officers, but Senator Butch Miller, who also hired Southern Magnolia Capital, confirmed that Denise Deal is one of the principals of Southern Magnolia Capital.
The Governor’s office was apparently not pleased, and the Georgia State Patrol claims to have been instructed to block Fox5 from covering today’s signing ceremony in the Governor’s office:
Peach Pundit will have more commentary on this later, as most contributors are either at or en route to the Republican Convention. Upon arrival, I expect delegates to be shocked, just shocked, that Governor Deal may have possibly attempted to circumvent disclosing that those close to him continue to profit from his “public service”.
