    With left side states like Hawaii in a centi-million dollar failing attempt to get a health exchange going and Republican candidates promising to repeal a health plan millions have signed on to…..

    Also check out Savannahnow.com It has a pay wall after 10 articles, but you can use the scroll bar to read around the access window. The ethis complant (along with a link to his emails) and the lobbying were printed May 10th. The contribution list for Ms. Simons (printed May 11th) is impressive. While other school board races are centered around tax rates and Common Core, Chatham is all about handling the Esplost.

    Does anyone else find it funny that David Perdue has never voted in a republican primary? Probably because he isn’t a republican. The first time he has voted in Georgia was the 2012 presidential preference primary. I’ve voted in every election since I was 18. I guess when you are living in China and Europe and dove hunting in Argentina you don’t have time to vote absentee.
