Web site: Michael Thurmond skipped financial disclosures for two years

Jim Walls at atlantaunfiltered.com says state Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond hasn’t been taking care of his paperwork:

Thurmond, who’s running for the U.S. Senate, filed no financial disclosure forms with the State Ethics Commission in 2008 or 2009, a check of the commission’s online look-up shows. Elected officials in Georgia are required to report on basic details of their personal finances every year by July 1.

Since he’s leaving his state job, Thurmond is not required to file the form this year. A similar disclosure for the Senate campaign is due Tuesday.

This appears status quo as of late, and become a part of the bureaucracy……they do as they DAMN please, and nothing is done about.

It is high time that we put our foot down and our middle finger up!

Go Tea Party!

And the Tea Party is somehow less corrupt? They’ve got Glenn “I work for Gold!” Beck as their spokesperson.

When the truth comes out about Johnny’s and several other Republicans part in the near collapse of Western Society . . . no one will vote for him. It is all about to come to light. What is it they say Johnny, “Brighter from Obscurity.” The truth about Insider Advantage will come forth too.

it is getting old for elected people to pass laws the everyday citizen has to follow to the T but yet they can do what they want when the please to do so. Also, on another note, everyone needs top see how Hiliary has stabbed USA in the back agreeing to the USA falling under the laws of gun control passed by the UN. We working people and law abiding citizens are loosing more and more each day. People it is time to stop voting based on race or party affliation and vote for the person.

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Washington D.C. that a small, well-placed tactical nuclear device couldn’t correct! The whole lot of them are corrupt, dishonest and immoral!

Glenn Beck’s a hero? Williebkind, surely you jest. A hero to whom? He’s just another in a long line of vapid Fox News “personalities” who never lets facts get in the way of generating a good lie or two. His popularity only goes to prove what journalist H.L.Menken said at the turn of the 20th century: “No one ever went broke over-estimating the ignorance of the American public.”

A simple oversight. The reports were filed today. Here’s the link http://ethics.georgia.gov/Reports/Financial/Financial_Details.aspx?FilerID=F2006000928

The inattention to this important detail is disappointing.

It sounds like Mr. Thurmond and Mr. Vernon Jones might share the same philosophies and political advisers.

As a state official Mr. Thurmond should know what he needs to do. No excuses!
