Snuggles, We Hardly Knew You (Again)

Lori Geary, say it ain’t so!?!

Geary, of WSB TV in Atlanta, has just tweeted that Vernon Jones has withdrawn from the House District 94 race.  Jones says he has a client who does business with the state, and wants to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

And with that, the campaign season just became significantly less entertaining.

    Is that really the reason he dropped out, or is Vernon just saving face to keep a residency challenge out of the news?

  2. Reason says:

    Residency would have no doubt been a pre-qualifying consideration so i’m not sure it was determinative for Mr. Jones.

    • Toxic Avenger says:

      You are far too logical.

      Residency challenges are not uncommon. It happened to Keith Gross. It’ll happen again.

  3. SallyForth says:

    An election without Vernon is like a day without sunshine. But don’t fret, people in HD-94 — you’ll have Cynthia back in the mix this year. Let the entertainment begin!

  4. USA1 says:

    Did Vern just realize that his home address on his voter registration is actually in District 91?

  5. NoTeabagging says:

    “to avoid the appearance of impropriety.”, Hey Vern, it never stopped you before now.
