From a press release:

Palmetto, GA, Dec. 15, 2012 – Republican David Stover today announced his candidacy for Georgia State House in the 71st district. Coweta Solicitor General Robert Stokely recently won the seat in the 2012 primary election with no challengers in the November general election but is unable to serve after being appointed to a judgeship with Coweta County Magistrate Court. A special election will be called.

Stover, who worked extensively on Stokely’s campaign, serves on the National Leadership Council for the TEA Party Patriots and as the Executive Coordinator for the local Coweta TEA Party Patriots group. Stover is also an Executive District Director for Georgia For FairTax.

“Robert is a great friend and I congratulate him on his appointment as a judge for the Coweta County Magistrate Court,” said Stover. “I have no doubt that Robert would have been an excellent state representative and he will be an equally great Magistrate judge. In light of Robert’s appointment, I would be honored to represent the 71st district in his place.”

Well known as a local activist against tax increases and government intrusion into the everyday lives of citizens, Stover has organized opposition against such issues as T-SPLOST, passing out as many as 12,000 fliers with his group of mostly TEA party volunteers. “I am proud to say that we succeeded in getting about ten carloads of people to volunteer, and together, we spent our weekends going around the county and handing them out. It worked. Our area had some of the highest “No” vote percentages in the state.”

“We lose more of our freedoms at the state and local levels of government,” says Stover. “We have a strong group of committed people in our area willing to spend their personal time to stop government overreach and excessive taxation. The next logical step is to bring it to the state level and continue my work there. I am prepared for this campaign; the website is complete, push cards are ready, signs ready to go, and I have a strong group of volunteers.”

A businessman and entrepreneur, Stover currently serves as president of BrightNight Media, Inc., an advertising and business development agency co-founded in 1997 with his wife, Kathy. Stover has co-founded and co-owns a variety of other businesses mainly in the technology fields of cloud-computing, networking services, software development, server management and hosted solutions.

Stover was born and raised in the South Fulton/Coweta County area. He attended Georgia Southern University pursuing a degree in Mathematics and Engineering and later attended University of West Georgia for a Bachelor of Science in Economics. He and his wife live and have raised three daughters on a horse farm in the northern part of Coweta County. His two oldest children graduated from Northgate High School; Katie is attending Northern Illinois University pursuing her PhD, Chloe is attending Georgia Southern, and the youngest, McKenzie, is due to graduate from Northgate High School in the spring of 2013.

Citizens with questions, comments, or who wish to volunteer to get involved with the campaign are encouraged to email [email protected] , or call 404-890-0026. Donations can be made via the campaign website at http://www.VoteStover.com or by mailing a check to: Friends of David Stover, 3150 E. Hwy 34, Suite 209-155, Newnan, GA 30265.

Finally! A candidate who has been already been doing what most only promise – actually fighting the tax increases and government BS. This guy has been in the trenches, fighting T-SPLOST, supporting the Fair Tax. I’ll help this guy, all good Republicans should help this guy!

Mcmuffin March 1, 2013 at 8:26 am

A COMMENT THAT DAVID STOVER MADE AT THE COWETA COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FORUM IS QUESTIONABLE: HE CLAIMS OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE FAIR TAX; WHAT COUNTRIES? OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE ESTONIA, L ATRIA, LITHUANIA, UKRAINE AND RUSSIA HAVE FLAT TAX WHERE DEDUCTIONS AND INCOME ARE CONSIDERED.
Tom Crymes is for fair tax but is honest. It needs research and work. Saxby Chambliss tried to pass something in support for fair tax and it failed. Vote for Tom Crymes a wise man that will work with other Republicans to solve problems. Stover uses websites to make himself look important—take a look at Ga for Fair Tax. Notice Stover took pictures from the website Fairtax.org—the T-Shirts have FairTax. org on them. Then he places a phote of himself and his wife on the website and has a comment posted about what a great guy he is. Don’t be deceived by this guy.

Mcmuffin February 24, 2013 at 6:15 pm

David Stover is a DISHONEST computer Geek and has worked for politicians in the past by creating websites such as “boycott the times herald” “Georgia for Fair Tax” that have FALSE and Misleading information and are not news websites –they are Campaign websites. The websites are male drama at its best. He has fake people write in and praise the current political crony. Mike Crane is one of his political cronies, look at his website, Mike Crane, senator from 28th district, started the secession off by trying to give Democrats more power- google “Mike Crane Casey Cagle Newnan Times Herald” These politicians want power at all cost even by putting power in Democrats court. Crane’s church declared “Mitt Romney the Anti-Christ asending” It was on the preachers blog –Coweta County was the only County where the Republican Party did not endorse Mitt Romney even after it was just Romney and Obama. This is Stover people. They are nutty. Vote for Tom Crymes -a Realistic Conservative Honest Republican—-he is strong on standing up for the 2nd amendment –look at his website-google Tom Crymes.

Charlie February 24, 2013 at 6:21 pm

The illuminati asked me to tell you hello.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 9:50 am

Rather odd what you say, especially since Stover had a Mitt Romney sign in his front yard…

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 9:42 am

and then there is this about Tom Crymes:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GA STATE HOUSE 71 CANDIDATE TOM CRYMES BATTLING LAWSUITS, FORECLOSURES, DELINQUENT BUSINESS LICENSES

Thomas G. Crymes, candidate for Georgia’s district 71 House seat, faces new challenges with filed lawsuits, foreclosed properties and now, charges of operating multiple businesses without a business license.

Atlanta, GA, Feb. 20, 2013 – Thomas G. Crymes, a candidate in the upcoming run-off election for Georgia State House District 71, today finds himself struggling to answer challenging questions about his involvement with insider bank lending, on-going lawsuits, property foreclosures and more.

Only days after Crymes mailed a negative hit piece targeting opponent, David Stover, in reality it is Tom Crymes who finds himself unable to give explanations about a myriad of questionable business practices going all the way back to the year 2000. The sordid story is one of pre-economic melt-down insider bank lending with Tom Crymes featured predominately as the insider business partner receiving loans from Coweta County’s Neighborhood Community Bank. With Crymes business partners acting as directors of the bank, facilitating the loans to the businesses that they all owned together and then acting or not-acting with appropriate oversight, the actions led to an ultimate seizure of the bank by the FDIC. The total cost to the citizens through the FDIC fund was $66.6 million.

According to the FDIC and reports by the Newnan Times Herald, the directors of Neighborhood Community Bank were James (Jim) Mottola of Parks and Mottola Realtors and David LaGuardia of the adjacent Outmed, LLC. The pair was also partners during this time with Tom Crymes in at least five different limited liability corporations including: Bledsoe Development LLC, Towncenter Condominium LLC, Bledsoe 60 LLC, Bledsoe Lot C LLC and Highway 34 Investors LLC. Many of the entities were on the receiving end of, according to the FDIC report, inappropriate “insider and conflict of interest” loans through Neighborhood Community Bank. Crymes’ properties have now been foreclosed. The total cost for the five failed LLCs amounted to over $5 million.

But if that wasn’t enough, Crymes also finds himself dealing with a charge of not having valid business licenses for up to five other Newnan-based corporations and LLCs that he either owns or is a major partner. All the businesses show an address within the Newnan, GA city limits and most are located at 37 L Calumet Parkway, Suite 200, Newnan, GA, an address used by Tom Crymes for most of his business dealings including Tomco Construction LLC and Tomco Construction Services, a business owned 90% by Crymes’ wife. The businesses in question include: Oak Hill III LLC, C&G Ventures, Oak Hill Building 1, Blairsville Building 1 LLC and Oak Hill Professional Park Inc. None show that they have ever been licensed by either the City of Newnan or by Coweta County which requires a business license if located in the respective municipality and before building or receiving revenue or rental income. It is a similar story for another Tom Crymes owned corporation, JMLF II Inc, now administratively dissolved after litigation was filed against the company.

Crymes efforts to hold off attachments stemming from his foreclosed properties and lawsuits include transferring his personal residence in Canongate subdivision into a trust and setting up each new construction deal into individually set up legal entities.

Other business dealings gone sour for candidate Crymes include yet more LLCs and incorporated businesses that have been either sued, such as with N&N Partners, or have gone out of business, as with C.R.O. Enterprises Inc, a business Crymes owned in partnership with county architect Kip Oldham. In addition, Crymes had a lien placed on his Tomco Construction business in 2003 due to not paying payroll taxes.

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:27 pm

IMMEDIATE RELEASE; TOM CRYMES REPRESENTATIVE CANDIDATE IN DISTRICT 71 IS NOT BATTLING LAWSUITS, OPERATING WITHOUT A BUSINESS LICENSE and BEING DELINQUENT ON TAXES: STOVER PEOPLE ARE DISHONEST
In an attempt to crush Tom Crymes, a honest candidate for house senate district 71, dishonest people for Stover or Stover have lied about Tomco Construction. Tom Crymes does not have lawsuits pending and does not own any businesses without the proper license. It is a sick person that would misrepresent the truth as the above Coweta Voter. These are tough economic times. When the bank went under and called notes – many people had to let their property go back to the bank and this foreclosure process does have some terminology of lawsuit. The FDIC did a full investigation of the bank and they have cleared all transactions concerning who was doing business with who. People on boards who have conflicts recluse themselves when their business is discussed. I can not even begin to tell you how hurt people have been in Coweta County. Times are difficult. Honesty in a candidate in today’s world of “who do you trust?” means a lot. Tom Crymes is honest. Stover has worked in the past for candidates as he brags about, But what he really was doing is using websites to lie about the opposing candidates. Look at Tom Crymes’s website and for goodness sakes–save this precious county–we have a good county –Stover has spent years criticizing this county and the county government—remember our county has money in the bank and our teachers are in good standing. We could easily turn into a county with troubles like some of the other counties surrounding Atlanta. Tom Crymes’s has had to work through troubles and knows what other business people are facing. He is honest. Go find him and meet him–meet his wife–it is a big county and it is hard for him to get to everyone. Vote for Tom Crymes

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 10:29 am

Notice how the above “news” is not from a reliable news source. It only references the Times Herald for the bank —just another misleading article by the Stover bunch. At least Crymes has been in business and understands what is going on in this economy. This is one of the most blown up misleading articles — There were many good Coweta County people doing business with the bank when it went into financial trouble- I am for Tom Crymes.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 11:02 am

Yes, many good people lost a lot of money investing in that bank. The FDIC report isn’t made up by anyone connected to Stover. The FDIC forced Jim Mottola as chairman of the bank to sign an agreement promising he would not engage in “insider lending to businesses that he and other board members had personal interests in”. Those business that he and other board members had personal interests in were their partnerships with Tom Crymes. But they didn’t stop. According to the FDIC report, they actually increased it. The FDIC had to SEIZE the bank. Tom Crymes and his partners used Neighbor Community Bank as their own personal piggy bank and cost the taxpayers $66.6 million dollars. The fall out from it is still going on. Now Crymes is running around Coweta with a plethora of little Limited Liability Corporations all operating without business licenses and trying to stay under the radar.

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:54 pm

LIAR—SUCH DISTORTION OF THE TRUTH —TOM CRYMES HAD A LOAN AT THE BANK. THERE WERE MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED. THE PERSON THAT COST TAX PAYERS IS ROBERT STOKLEY FOR RUNNING AND THEN QUITING AFTER BEING ELECTED AND ACCEPTING A STATE JOB–THIS ELECTION IS WHAT IS COSTING THE TAX PAYERS.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 11:05 am

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DAVID STOVER’S WIFE TRIES TO EXPLAIN TO THE TIMES HERALD WHY THEY OPERATED WITHOUT A BUSINESS LICENSE

directly quoted from the Newnan Times Herald
“Mrs. Stover was repeatly asked to simply provide information whereby the business license could be confirmed.
“We have our business licenses. They have been shown to the proper regulating authority, “she said.
She said Coweta County “has already dismissed it and accepted our documentation, “and is”fully satisfied with the documentation.”
Coweta Public Affairs Director Patricia Palmer said late Friday afternoon that no such documentation has been submitted.
This is a direct quote from a reliable news source.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 11:43 am

Yet, checking Coweta County business license office and they have a notation that Coweta county recognizes Stover’s business license. I’d say the government offices of Coweta County is a pretty good source…just saying.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 12:51 pm

Hmmm, here is a link showing Crymes, Mottola and Fletcher all still in business together.
http://businessprofiles.com/details/calumet-business-park-condominium/GA-0254614/james-van-s-mottola

And here is a link to the court docket showing a VERY recently filed lawsuit against Tom Crymes, him named personally, and a business he partners I with these guys.
http://dockets.justia.com/docket/georgia/gandce/3:2012cv00143/187964/

Did Stover make up all these too?

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:57 pm

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO PROVE. THE FDIC FOUND NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 1:19 pm

Yes, Patricia Palmer, Coweta County was a good source when DAVID STOVER DID NOT HAVE A BUSINESS LICENSE.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 1:42 pm

I dont know about Palmer, what she knew or didn’t know. She is a PR person? But the FACT is that Coweta county business license office shows officially in their records that Stover has a license, had a license and was never without a license. Again, call them and verify it.

But, by your outrage over business licensing, I guess you are pretty mad at Crymes for not having licenses for, what is it? About 9 or so different companies?

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 8:23 pm

You missed the point. It is the lying that bothers me. Readers just google David Stover Tmes Herald business license–it is all there -Stover lying about having a license in another County and when that was check they could not find it-lying to the news paper.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 8:48 pm

“They” couldn’t find it? Who, the illuminati? Because the Coweta business license office has listed that Stover had a business license in Coweta until the business was moved to Cobb county. It says right on official record – license VERIFIED Cobb County. Stover has a print out of it to counteract the “lying” that you and your friends have been doing. A group of us went and checked and it is there. Go down there or call or do something to check it for every year you have a question about. Then you will eat your hysterical ranting and may God not let you choke on it.

So let me ask you this? When you get off your lazy butt and actually check this out and when you find out that you are wrong, what will you do then? Will you call Stover and apologize Lynn?

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:32 pm

YES NOW HE HAS A LICENSE, BUT STOVER DID IN THE PAST WORK WITHOUT A LICENSE AND TRIED TO COVER IT UP……….THE BAD PART IS COVERING IT UP AND BEING DISHONEST.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 11:10 am

Coweta Voter. We know how attorneys and even some judges can mislead people. Vote Tom Crymes- a candidate not involved in false and misleading information.

novicegirl February 25, 2013 at 11:20 am

Why don’t you go knock on some doors for your candidate, it would be far more productive.

Charlie February 25, 2013 at 11:32 am

Based on her comments here, I think it would be counterproductive.

And much more work for the illuminati to track.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 11:41 am

Charlie, I have copies of Mike Crane’s church’s blog predicting Mitt Romney the “anti- Christ” would you like for me to fax it to you?
IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FROM SENATOR MIKE CRANE’S CHURCH-PETE MULLINS BLOG
MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT…ANTI-CHRIST ASCENDING–HAS ENDORSED STOVER
This is a direct quote:
“Joseph Smith, the father and founding “prophet” of Mormonism was a Satan, the father of all liars. Romney, unless he repents and embraces the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, is a son of the same lineage. The pundits and many Christians may think Romney has “come around” to the right position on many of the issues important to conservative Christians because he has had a change of heart. His father knows better.”
This is copied from Mike Crane’s churches blog. Senator Mike Crane has endorsed David Stover.

Charlie February 25, 2013 at 12:04 pm

And yet, neither Mike Crane nor Mitt Romney are on this ballot, are they? And now we’re talking about Mike Crane’s church…when the race is between Stover and Crymes….and you somehow still think you’re helping here?

Hawks Fan March 1, 2013 at 2:30 pm

Mrs. Blackburn, I know you have been obsessed with Senator Crane and his religion since he beat your husband, but please get your facts straight. Senator Crane and his family do not attend this church. From reading your comments I believe you think David Stover is the anti-Christ.

Mcmuffin March 1, 2013 at 7:18 pm

I do not think I would call anyone Mrs. Blackburn. She might get word and decide to get on here. I remember the lies told about Mr. Blackburn through Stover’s website “boycott the times herald”and how Fox News reported on the same lies from mail outs saying– “It Fails The Truth Test”. There was something about David Stover lying to the Newnan Times Herald about a forum put on by the Newnan TEA Party–Blackburn could not attend–he told Stover this–but Stover called the Newnan Times Herald anyway and did not tell them that Blackburn could not attend—Made it sound like it was all set up. This story is also in the Times Herald–Google: Newnan Times Herald Stover Blackburn TEA party forum. I did not mention the name of the church. I do not make predictions — I believe David Stover would be an embarrassment to County.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Tell Stover that–his website is nothing but cronyism. Stover is the one that has included Crane in his campaign.

Charlie February 25, 2013 at 12:31 pm

You really, honestly, and sincerely don’t understand the fact that you’re not helping here, do you?

GAgadfly February 25, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Shhhhh! This is quite entertaining, and if this person figures out the truth, it will cost us the chance to witness this brilliance for the next week.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 1:32 pm

Ok, I’ll go to another political website or should I say “campaign website” –created to promote cronyism in politics.

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:33 pm

DO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE HELPING COWETA COUNTY?

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 12:34 pm

The Crymes campaign now attacking the opponent’s wife, that has to be a new low in Georgia politics. No wonder the illuminati are upset. But wait! Maybe the illuminati is really Stover! Charlie, is that really you?
IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COMPUTER WHIZ DAVID STOVER PUTS UP FAKE PEACH PINDIT WEBSITE AND MASQUERADES AS CHARLIE

BTW McMuffin, Crymes asked both Mike Crane and Lynn Weastmoreland for their endorsement. Both told Crymes no.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 1:41 pm

Lynn Westmoreland doing business at Glen Grove Development( may be in his wife’s name)–the builder is Mike Crane. David Stover worked on Mike Crane’s campaign with the dishonest website “boycott the times herald”. Get the connections.

Three Jack February 25, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Just love it when campaign staffers for two tarnished candidates fight it out over who is the less tarnished. If i were in the district, the one who proudly touts his GRTL endorsement would be eliminated from consideration.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 2:38 pm

Well at least you decide based on ideology. Stover is endorsed by GRTL, so I guess you are saying Crymes is pro-choice? Interesting. I didn’t know that…

Three Jack February 25, 2013 at 3:56 pm

No CowetaVoter, I’m saying I automatically eliminate any candidate endorsed by GRTL because I know what that candidate agreed to in order to receive the endorsement.

Mcmuffin February 26, 2013 at 12:24 pm

liar, or should I say misleading— it is on Tom Crymes’s website- he is pro-life

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 2:53 pm

Oh, I don’t think Stover has any campaign staffers. Crymes has a few. But McMuffan is apparently is Duke Blackburn’s wife according to another post. Makes sense. She has been posting these similar things on the Times Herald page. Should have put it together sooner.

Mcmuffin February 25, 2013 at 8:27 pm

Yea right and you are JUDGE ROBERT STOKLEY OR SHOULD I CALL YOU PEREZ.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 8:50 pm

Lynn, wow. Does your husband know you are doing this? Duke won’t get elected to dogcatcher if this is the way you act.

Mcmuffin February 26, 2013 at 8:01 am

Mr. Blackburn’s wife is in New York and hates politics. I would bet she will never let him run again.

Mcmuffin March 5, 2013 at 9:44 am

I am not Mrs. Blackburn. But thanks anyway.

CowetaVoter February 25, 2013 at 2:46 pm

No. I don’t get the connections. Are you saying Lynn Westmoreland, Mike Crane and David Stover all work on some fake websites together – the Fairtax, the Times Herald, Peach Pundit and they are really campaign websites made to promote some nefarious agenda?

Maybe a better connection is that Lynn Westmoreland sits on the banking and finance committe and therefor knows about Crymes Neighborhood Community Bank insider lending scandal so he won’t touch Crymes with a ten foot pole.

But your conspiracy theory is a lot more entertaining!

Mcmuffin February 26, 2013 at 12:30 pm

I read that comment– they said the websites were–” boycott the times herald” “Georgia for Fair Tax” and “Peach Pundit” They do have a point– on Georgia for Fair Tax the people have on Fairtax. org T-shirts and their is a write in praising Stover—come on —this is campaigning —on the Fairtax.org they do not have campaigning. They do not understand that people like you send in articles as a “comment” making it look like news on this website.. You are slick.

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 9:38 pm

THEN LYNN WESTMORELAND SHOULD KNOW THAT THE FDIC HAS CLEARED THE BANK.

Mcmuffin February 28, 2013 at 10:02 pm

CAN ANYONE GET IN TOUCH WITH COLBERT–HE WOULD LOVE THIS STUFF ABOUT MIKE CRANE’S CHURCH– LETS GET ON THE LIGHT SIDE FOR A WHILE -GOOGLE : COLBERT WESTMORELAND AND TEN COMMANDMENTS–GREAT VIDEO.

CowetaMan February 25, 2013 at 2:33 pm

Really ThreeJack? So in other words you are a campaign staffer for Crymes?

Love all of the assumptions. Mcmuffin (Mrs. Blackburn) you are really outing yourself on here. Just because your husband lost does not mean everyone else is bad too! You throw out accusations but have no proof of any of it. Kind-of like the Georgia for FairTax website being FAKE??? or the boycott the times herald is Stover??? No proof, just wrong, wrong, wrong on all fronts.

debbie0040 February 25, 2013 at 9:36 pm

David Stover is the best person for the job and if I lived in the district, David would get my vote without question.

Mcmuffin February 26, 2013 at 8:12 am

Tom Crymes has real community volunteer work – volunteer fireman, on the board at the Chamber of Commerce, taught Sunday School, on the board at his children’s school. Has pulled his business out of tough times and made a success of it. I just hope and prey that no one tries to throw mud at the other many people who have difficulty keeping their businesses and holding on to what they have. Vote for Tom Crymes a real business man who can try to get some of the unfair regulations off of the businesses in Georgia.

CowetaVoter February 27, 2013 at 8:11 am

This is a sample of what people in Coweta are talking about: ” So what does that make for Thomas Crymes? At least 9 out of his 11 businesses have been found not to have business licenses, he failed to pay his payroll taxes and the state put a lien on his Tomco Construction business, there have been 2 lawsuits now filed against him personally as well as his businesses and more to come, he is delinquent with unpaid property taxes on both personal property and commercial property he owns, he had to put his Cannongate residence in a trust to protect it from creditors and all this on top of his business properties being foreclosed one after the other. Then there is his involvement with Neighborhood Community Bank where he and his partners used it for their own private piggyback costing taxpayers $66 million. Anyone actually thinking of putting this guy in office? I mean SERIOUSLY? Is this the future of Coweta elected officials?”

CowetaVoter February 27, 2013 at 8:20 am

But isn’t that what you are doing?

You call Stover dishonest because you believe he didn’t have a license for what? 4 months after he moved his business to another county? Yet play a violin for Crymes who has been operating 9 businesses without licensing for at least a decade? who he and his partners frauded the taxpayers out of $66 million? Who has tax liens going back to 2003 when the economy was booming? Who has lawsuits against him totaling in the millions and not for construction projects either. That isn’t tough times sweetheart. That is a track record of bad business dealings, fraud and dishonesty.

CowetaVoter February 27, 2013 at 8:31 am

You know the bank fraud investigations are still ongoing. What do you think will happen if Tom Crymes is elected to state office with that on his plate? The FDIC already named them all as reasons for the bank failure and cited them for insider bank lending as the cause. The FDIC already reported that Crymes and his partners violated the document the FDIC required them to sign stating they would not lend money to themselves anymore. Instead Crymes and his partners INCREASED lending money to themselves. What an embarrassment to the county that would be if we have to have another special election costing the taxpayers to replace Crymes after he is convicted of bank fraud.

Mcmuffin March 1, 2013 at 6:54 pm

There is no bank fraud investigation.

debbie0040 February 26, 2013 at 8:18 am

I whole heartedly support David Stover. If I lived in his district, he would have my vote. Look for an endorsement from Julianne Thompson and me today on behalf of Atlanta Tea Party

Three Jack February 26, 2013 at 10:17 am

So how does the Atlanta Tea Party have influence over an election that does not include Atlanta?
