Perdue mingles with media, orders refreshments

No one is sure what Gov. Perdue is going to do after his term of governor is up. Journalism maybe.

At about 9:30 p.m., the governor snuck into the Senate’s press gallery to hang out with members of the print media. He promised to look into expanding the cramped Senate quarters, where they have toiled for the past 40 days.

And, in Perdue fashion, he was the center of attention and the life of the little press party.

“Hey Mullis,” he shouted at Sen. Jeff Mullis (R-Chickamauga). “We need two Cokes and a Diet Coke.”

Mullis retreated to the Senate break room and returned with the treats.

Mullis traditionally provides drinks and snacks for members of the media.

And what is wrong with the free Cokes? I worked down there and appreciated my free stock of them. I mean, the legislators do work hard at times and become parched, so why not a free drink from time to time, right?

Article from Washington: “Perdue makes ethics group’s worst governor’s list”

website: http://www.citizensforethics.org/

WASHINGTON–(AP) On Wednesday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released a report on the nation’s most incompetent and unethical governors. CREW’s Worst Governors report provides in-depth analyses of 11 elected officials who have pushed their states’ best interests aside in favor of their supporters, families, political parties and bank accounts.

CREW today also launched the report’s website, http://www.WorstGovernors.org, which offers concise summaries of each governor’s offenses and links to their full profiles and exhibits.

In compiling Worst Governors, CREW reviewed the job performances of all 50 U.S. governors before identifying the worst 11. Though ethics laws, campaign finance rules and financial disclosure regulations vary from state to state, CREW found these governors’proclivities for corruption, cronyism and self-enrichment outweighed their competency, integrity and commitment to transparency.

CREW’s unranked list of the 11 worst governors includes: Governor Perdue

What a loser Mullis is. If he wants to curry favor with the press, why doesn’t he step up and accomplish something.

Counting down the days until Governor Fudd is out of office! Good riddance you do-nothing lazy slacker. Maybe you should pray for a new job after you “retire” from office.

Amen to Governor Fudd the fish brain. What is going to happen when the city of Atlanta and surrounding area gets their water cut off? Why has he not dealt with that problem?
