Richardson is in the building

House Speaker Glenn Richardson is in the state Capitol, but it’s unclear if he plans to participate in the House Republican caucus meeting that begins in about 10 minutes.

AJC columnist Jay Bookman said he rode the Capitol elevator with Richardson, although the two did not speak.

Sitting here in the House press gallery, members are starting to filter in to the chamber, but Richardson is not among them.

Richardson, of course, is why there is a meeting today at all, as it the gathering comes on the heels of his announced resignation.

As an active, as yet unresigned, member of the caucus, wouldn’t GR still have a vote in the Speaker’s election?

Same party, same scandals….only the speaker’s name has changed. Even his acceptance speech is filled with the same corney, “Aw Shucks” and “I’m just a good ole’ Country Boy” kind of demeaning attitude which folks just eat up while all the while not realizing they are being played for the fools they are. This is the same kind of crap that Sarah Palin loves to shovel to her ignorant supporters and they eat up……More of the same ahead.
