In today’s episode of the Georgia State Ethics Commission As Performance Art, we have news that their staff attorney has been placed on leave for allegedly drinking on the job. From the AJC’s Aaron Sheinin:
Elisabeth Murray-Obertein, the ethics commission attorney and key witness in a pair of lawsuits related to the handling of an investigation into Gov. Nathan Deal’s 2010 campaign, is on administrative leave after a Capitol Police officer said she appeared to have been drinking on the job.
Murray-Obertein has been the chief internal critic of Commission Executive Secretary Holly LaBerge. Now this brings a very public criticism of Murray-Obertein’s conduct on the job.
Conclusion: This place is just a damn mess.
