If (House Member-Elect) Buzz Is Quoted, It’s Front Page Material

The fourth time this was submitted today, I finally clicked the link. Apparently, a candidate in a house runoff has taken a $5,000 campaign donation from La Vision de Georgia and another $2,000 from it’s founder.

The La Vision newspaper and its founder, Victoria Chacon, are vocal supporters of amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Chacon, who by herself donated $2,000 to Carsten’s campaign, said in an interview to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that, “Mexicans who make illegal border crossings for job-rich cities like Atlanta, ‘have no choice’ but to break the law.” The remaining portions of La Vision’s contribution were made by Chacon’s husband and La Vision’s office Carsten’s run-off opponent, B.J. Pak — a former federal prosecutor who has actual experience prosecuting and deporting dangerous illegal immigrants — is calling on Linda Carsten to immediately return the $5,000.

Lest any of you think that multiple spamming me is the way to get your item posted on the front page, this is the hook that got this one elevated:

“The following Gwinnett Republican leaders and elected officials have joined Pak in demanding that Linda Carsten return these funds immediately: State Representative David Casas (R-Dist. 103), State Rep-Elect Josh Clark (R-Dist. 98), State Rep-Elect Buzz Brockway (R-Dist 101), Republican Nominee Brett Harrell (R-Dist 106), and also Butch (er, the quote actually ends there. I’m assuming “Butch” is sheriff Butch Conway, but my guess is he heard someone once had a beer and needed to undergo a field sobriety test, so he left before finishing his name.)

So, Long story short, Buzz says vote B.J. Pak.

A Republican who starts out his campaign showing he just doesn’t get it

Delvis Dutton (pictured) announced this week he will qualify on April 26 as a candidate in the Republican primary for State House District 166, to succeed state Rep. Terry Barnard (Facebook), who recently announced his retirement after 16 years in that seat. Dutton (website | Facebook) seems like a pretty good dude but it didn’t take very long for one to wonder if he is looking to serve the public or for the public to serve him. It’s a disease that infects portions of both parties, but for today let’s just focus on the party that actually tries to preserve freedom. And one need look no further than Dutton’s announcement that he is getting into the House District 166 race, found below the fold.
