Get some popcorn and wait a few days.

“Military commanders are angry that Governor Nathan Deal overlooked battle-tested National Guard officers when he appointed his Senate floor leader to the head of the National Guard.

Some say Jim Butterworth wasn’t qualified and was appointed through the back door.

Those same critics cringe at what they call mistakes made by Major General Jim Butterworth during his first few months on the job.

Senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell has the story.”
