The three person panel that will decide if indicted State Representative Tyrone Brooks will be suspended will have a majority from his own party, reports Aaron Gould Sheinin via Jim Galloway:
Deal named Senate Minority Leader Steve Henson, D-Tucker, and House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, D-Atlanta, to the three-member panel. The state Constitution calls for the committee to decide if the charges against Brooks makes him unfit for office.
Interesting position for Democratic leaders who have been quite willing to join forces with those of us who have been quite willing to criticize and call for punishment of those breaking rules on the majority’s side of the aisle. The fate of how they handle a criminal charge against one of their own as it is adjudicated is now solidly in Democratic hands.
