Your morning jolt: Tea party, business woes give Nathan Deal some identity problems

The tea party movement gave the Republican establishment another dose of heartburn on Tuesday, pushing Christine O’Donnell to an upset against U.S. Rep. Michael Castle in Delaware’s GOP primary for U.S. Senate.

O’Donnell’s victory gives Democrats a better chance of holding on to that seat – and perhaps the Senate itself – in November.

But here’s the relevant paragraph for Georgia, from the New York Times:

Mr. Castle, a moderate who served two terms as governor and had been reliably winning elections for the last four decades, became the latest establishment Republican casualty. Republican leaders, who had actively opposed Ms. O’Donnell, said the outcome complicated the party’s chances of winning control of the Senate.

While the GOP is giddy with the current anti-Democratic climate, the sheer volatility of the tea-tinged Republican electorate is unnerving, and has forced some unusual decisions, even here.

Specifically, the tea party movement and its anti-Washington attitude has complicated Nathan Deal’s effort to define himself.

On Tuesday, the campaign of the Republican nominee for governor released its first campaign ad, a biographical TV spot aimed at the lower section of the state that is least familiar with him – Augusta, Albany, Macon, Columbus and Savannah.

Deal is the son of two school teachers, the TV spot allowed. Family photos show him as a young prosecutor, judge and “public servant.”

The ad — which presumably contains the information that the Deal campaign most wants south Georgia voters to know – makes no mention of the fact that Deal spent nearly a generation in Congress, representing north Georgia from 1994 until last spring. Nor does it mention his time in the state Senate.

“This is about the Nathan Deal they don’t know,” Brian Robinson, spokesman for the Deal campaign, said – in an attempt to explain the absence of Washington or Atlanta in the ads.

***

The Deal TV spot also makes no mention of the former north Georgia congressman’s business experience. Deal was part owner of an auto salvage firm that became the subject of a U.S. House ethics investigation.

But my AJC colleague Alan Judd today provides another possible motivation:

In the midst of his campaign for governor, Nathan Deal faces such dire financial troubles that he must sell his home to avert foreclosure or bankruptcy.

Nathan Deal helped his daughter and son-in-law obtain more than $2 million in loans for Wilder Outdoors, a sporting goods store in Baldwin, Ga. The business failed — and so did the bank that lent the money.

Even if Deal liquidates all his assets, however, he still might be unable to repay a nearly $2.3 million business loan, documents reviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution indicate. The loan comes due in full Feb. 1 — less than one month after Deal hopes to take office.

Financial crises aren’t necessarily fatal for political candidates. In 2009, Gov. Sonny Perdue was faced with payment of a $21 million loan related to his grain elevator business. But the governor has successfully kept a lid on the details.

Republicans were prepared to stick with state School Superintendent Kathy Cox, who – with her husband – was forced to declare personal bankruptcy, until Cox fled to D.C. and secure employment.

This spring, former state Rep. Tom Graves – in the midst of his bid for Deal’s congressional seat – was hit by a lawsuit from a bank, accusing him of being “insolvent” and attempting to duck repayment of a $2.2 million loan.

Tea party enthusiasts nevertheless stuck with Gaves. His financial status remains unresolved, but Graves is now the congressman from the 9th District.

For the Deal, the political impact of this news – apart from limiting his ability (or inclination) to identify himself as a businessman – may be found here:

Any way Deal tries to resolve the outstanding loan carries negative political or financial consequences.

Howard Rothbloom, a bankruptcy lawyer in Marietta, said in an interview he would advise Deal to sell his home and the commercial property, give the bank the proceeds and then ask the lender to write off the balance.

A South Carolina bank, SCBT, acquired Community Bank’s assets and deposits when the latter failed in January. As part of that deal, the FDIC agreed to share losses with SCBT on some of Community’s old loans. That arrangement — in essence, government help in paying off the debt — could work to Deal’s advantage, Rothbloom said.

“Everything is negotiable,” he said. “He could settle with the bank — pay them less than the full amount due in satisfaction of the debt. It’s not unusual.”

The above scenario would make it harder to condemn “too big to fail” and the immorality of federal expansionism.

***

A reminder: Georgia Public Broadcasting launches a new, weekly show at 7 tonight, called “Prime Time Politics.” Yours truly is involved.

***

On Fox5 News last night, Dale Russell reported that the state now wants to revoke the hospice permit of a major supporter of state Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, who lost a GOP primary bid for governor in July:

***

In the Savannah Morning News, Larry Peterson reports that another Republican candidate for governor is headed back to the private sector:

When Eric Johnson ran for governor, his Savannah campaign headquarters was a suite at Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung (HGBD).

And when the headquarters opened, he recalled starting his architectural career at HGBD in 1985 and said, “it feels like coming home.”

Now he has. The former state senator has been named to lead the firm’s architectural and interior design division. He is the new president of HGBD International.

Johnson, 57, is back at HGBD after working in real estate development for North Point Industrial for four years.

***

And at ATLaw, the Fulton County Daily Report, Andy Peters tells of state Supreme Court Justice Harris Hines’ odd date on Tuesday:

At 11 a.m., Hines said he was waiting on the steps of the State Capitol to meet a homeless man named J.J.

Hines recently left his cell phone on top of his vehicle and accidentally drove away. When he realized the phone was gone, Hines used his wife’s phone to call his number to see if anyone had found it. J.J. answered and offered to return the phone if Hines would meet him at the Capitol, near where he usually sleeps on the street.

During a news conference being held by Republican attorney general candidate Sam Olens, J.J. kept his promise and handed over the phone.

If he declares bankrupcy and the government allows him to not pay off his loans, that is a government hand out.

So, if he takes the hand out, he has no credibility with the anti-social programs crowd.

But, in the end, he is hoping to get some government housing this spring. And of course, his family will still get to enjoy free government healthcare for the rest of their lives, so broke or not, he is still better off than most.

You know, even us Democrats want to help our kids out when we can but this reminds me of ole GWB in a way. I recall before he got our country in so much financial trouble there were signes he was also fiscally irresponsible. He bankrupted one company and then had to fire sale the Rangers. There was a history there, and now we see this with Deal. It comes down to a bad judgement call but HE has to pay this one. As govenor of this state, we will have to pay for his bad judgement calls. Do we really want this? We can’t afford to mess this election up.

Purdue, Cox, Graves, and Deal….these are the people the Republicans want to manage our tax dollars? No wonder Deal wants to be Governor. He needs a place to live and a way to raise a quick couple of million I am sure Sonny can give him some pointers on how to use the Governor’s office to loans on real good terms. He can also educate him on how to make a fortune in real estate while in office. Remember this little nugget:

Gov. Perdue saved an additional $100,000 in Georgia state taxes thanks to a tax bill, which
repealed the state tax on federal land swaps, the governor signed into law in 2005, the year after
his own land swap had taken place.25 The chairman of the state House Ways and Means
Committee—who has done legal work for the governor—altered the bill at the 11th hour to
retroactively cover any land sales occurring after January 1, 2004.26 This change allowed the
governor to take advantage of the new tax rule.27 Despite this, Gov. Perdue repeatedly claimed
that when he signed the tax bill into law he was unaware that it would affect him.28 A document
obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution suggests otherwise—the governor received a
memorandum explaining the tax change in April 2005, prior to signing the legislation.29

Now it all makes sense of why you give up a lifetime job for uncertain chances of becoming Governor. Since we know Deal is already ethically challenged, what better way of making large sums of money quickly for a man with no real talent than harvesting the graft potential of the Office of Governor. Road contracts, Ports deal, sweetheart land purchases-just follow the Perdue playbook. Doesn’t require any talent and viola-Nathan your financial problems will be solved, all courtesy of the hardworking Georgia taxpayers. Just keep giving them the old line about opposition to government bailouts, welfare and shiftless individuals getting rich on the dole. Atta boy.

She like millions of others will implement the FAIRTax, eliminate abortion-on-demand, voucherize education, explore for more coal + oil and expand and strengthen our military. Miss Christine will also institute a culture of life whereby God re-enters our lives.

The Nathan Deal story is one of inspiration. He went into business with family, took a risk, took a loss and is now coming back strong than ever. God Bless this fine gentleman who will be Georgia’s next governor. The ads are remarkable and I do hope that the good people of South Georgia pay attention to them and realize that this man will make a legendary leader in the state.

As a congressman Deal voted for the new bankruptcy laws a few years ago which make it more difficult for some who files for bankruptcy to write off their debts. He spent quite a bit of time over the past 2 years complaining loudly and publicly about “government bailouts” and government “takeovers,” and he voted against allowing Americans to negotiate with their banks and mortgage companies to save their homes from being foreclosed upon last year. I wonder how he feels about these issues now that his own chickens have come home to roost. I understand he was trying to help his daughter and her husband, and I don’t fault him for that because most parents would opt to help their kids. The problem I have with Deal was his lack of concern for millions of other Americans who are/were going through what he is experiencing now while he was in a position to help as a member of Congress.

Now we find that Deal is not only a crook, but a terrible money manager as well. No doubt he is planning to use his position as governor for “public housing” as well as to take advantage of the crooked deals he can make in order to make himself solvent again. What a joke! Is this who we want to be our next governor? If it is, then we deserve the kind of leadership we will get.

How could there not be ethics questions for Deal? He made on average $150,000 a year and had personal loans for his home and cabin for nearly a million dollars. Then, a bank loaned his family money for a foolhardy high end outdoor sports retail store for over 2 million. There was zero ability to repay the loan and no collateral to cover the loan. The Deal and bank relationship is questionable at best because no other person could have gotten that kind of loan without some other kind of understanding promised by a Congressman.

If Deal wants to run on his record, his record with business is a complete failure. His record in Congress has ethical questions prior to leaving office. Why didn’t the GOP vet Deal more carefully? I’ll bet you anything the Barnes campaign knew of these deals before the Republican primary.

If Deal was applying for a job with this history, no employer would put him in charge on any critical business deals based on his history. These are RED FLAGS! Do you really want the next governor of Ga to be beholden to creditors?

Speaking as a father, Nathan did what most fathers would do – he tried to help his daugher and son-in-law realize the dream of owning their own small business. It didn’t work out, unfortunately, probably largely because the broader economy tanked (there are an awful lot of small businesses that have suffered the same fate in the down turn and more to come unfortunately). But I don’t think this shows anything more than a mother and father who put themselves at risk to try to help their children make a better life for themselves. I am sorry this didn’t turn out well for them, but I completely understand the reasons behind the Deals trying to help out their children with their small business. This same story plays out across the state and across the country daily as people work like heck to start small businesses and grow them in a tax, regulatory and lawsuit environment that becomes less and less business friendly every day. Just wait till we have to fill out all those 1099s that are a part of Obamacare!

Deal just doesn’t seem to be able to be good at much of anything, does he? His own business dealing reek of sweetheart back door dealing with the State. That led to investigations in the House and he quit that job. Looks like he wasn’t really working at either “job” that was paying him money.

Now, he is running for governor and he is embroiled in a financial mess. If he gets out of it, it won’t be by the sweat of his brow, again, but by accepting a write off from a bank. Does anyone want to believe that Joe Bob down the street who is not a politician would get as good as Deal gets.

The man has been so busy wheeling and dealing all his life that he has never worked. Is there anything he really worked at that he can be proud of? Maybe the ONLY thing he can tell the rest of the State about himself that doesn’t have negative connotations is that he is the son of teachers.

But, does it really matter how bad he is? He is Republican. Enough said.

I don’t think they are. You blinded Republicans just can’t see what lousy candidates the Georgia GOP offered the Georgia voter. Even Karen Handel called Deal what he is. That’s unheard of for one Republican to publicly call another Republican “a corrupt relic of Washington, D.C.” You want “the best man for the job”? Well, it isn’t Nathan Deal. Who makes better financial decisions? Barnes or Deal? Barnes! Who has had ethics complaints filed against him? Deal. Who has a history of being able to run state government? Barnes or Deal? Barnes.

No matter how the vote goes, you’re a backing a loser and everyday, more and more Republicans and Independent voters are coming to terms with that. They’ve alread had $onny Perdue stealing from them for the past 8 years. Now, you and others with your twisted thinking want to foist another thief on us?

It was 2008 when he went into additional debt to the tune of 2.4 million. The economy was already sinking. How did he expect a business that was losing money at the time to pay that loan back?

This is the conclusion by the Office of Congressional Ethics:

IV. CONCLUSION
68. Representative Deal asserts that his interest in meeting with Georgia officials on the topic of vehicle salvage and inspections involved state safety and budget concerns. He argues that he took action as a public servant concerned with issues affecting the public. In contrast, the Georgia Revenue Commissioner asserts that he sought to open up state vehicle inspections to privatization and marketplace competition, thereby potentially decreasing the amount of vehicles inspected by existing stations.

69. The OCE does not take a position on Representative Deal’s motivations for inserting himself into discussions of potential modifications to a state vehicle inspection program. However, during operation of the previous vehicle inspection system, Representative Deal received a significant financial benefit as a GSD partner and corporate officer. It is undisputed that as a “public servant,” Representative Deal took active steps to preserve a purely state program, one that had generated financial benefit for Representative Deal and his business partner. Further, while taking these steps, Representative Deal used resources of the House of Representatives.

70. The OCE reviews the facts as presented at the time of review and does not take a positionon whether Representative Deal’s income from GSD was mistakenly reported as earned income since 2006 on his federal income taxes. The evidence before the Board is that Representative Deal characterized his income from GSD as wages on his tax return and, by contrast, as unearned “Dividends” or unearned “Partnership Income” on his Financial Disclosure Statements. This inconsistency, as of the end of the second-phase review and Board vote, has not been resolved.

71. The $75,000 reported as earned income on the tax return exceeded the limit on outside earned income and prohibition on receiving any income while serving as a corporate officer. Further, Representative Deal did not disclose that he was the GSD corporate secretary on his 2009 Financial Disclosure Statement (covering calendar year 2008).

72. For all the reasons stated above, the OCE Board recommends further review by the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct.
