Over at SWGA Politics, Jeff Sexton points us to something that has provoked much conversation within the ranks of the state GOP – please pardon the trademark violation.
Mike Carter of Cleveland, Ga., a Republican activist and an Eric Johnson enthusiast during the primary, has resigned his spot on the state committee because of his concerns over Nathan Deal’s run for governor.
Carter posted the news on his Facebook page:
I recently resigned as a GAGOP State Committee Member so that I could say the following without retribution from the GAGOP. This was a very regretful and most difficult thing for me to personally do! I took this position very seriously andfaithfully served the GAGOP and was a very active Member of the State Committee. I attended every meeting and every possible activity and event as a Member of the Committee.
I trust you as well as others can now see that I knew a lot more about Nathan Deal and his unethical, intentional and calculated misconduct when I began to point people to resources to do their own research as good honest Conservatives should do. Nathan Deal’s situation is not simply about helping a family member realize a business dream that failed. His family should be left out of all of this (I mean this from the bottom of my heart) this is about how he has handled everything as a US Congressman and now candidate for Governor of the state of Georgia.
Nathan Deal is a desperate man and we all know that desperate people do desperate things. We do not need a desperate man and the people he surrounds himself with holding and working in the highest office in this state! That is crystal clear!
There’s more, but you get the flavor.
