An article said the Cobb parking overreach vote was unanimous. What do the other commissioners have to say about their voting for this crap? Lee shouldn’t have to take all of the heat.

Parking permits around the stadium could have been a positive to identify parking availability and as a check on public safety and taxable revenue. The dark side is when permitting is used to control who participates in the revenue and generate revenue by fines while inconveniencing the public. This may not be the reason to not vote for Lee but it is a fair example for some that thought they voted for someone to reflect their philosophies and once in office began to see less consistency. But then we have the challenge that what we read by “trusted reporters” is… Read more »

True words, Salty. Criminal sanctions proposed by the Parking Police? Anyone surprised? Nope. I have visions of Lee and his gang literally giggling like a bunch of school girls at the thought of monetarily sticking it to the property owners.

It’s pure, 100 % citizen harassment like red light cameras, civil asset forfeiture and speed traps.

I have to say that two weeks ago I was blissfully unaware about anything to do with local Cobb County politics. Today, not so much…

To me this is a local example of why there is so much anger today. The fourth estate became lobbyists and the fifth estate is perfecting it. What is in the general good is lost by this imbalance.

Please tell me this is a mistake. Cherokee County K-9 officer accused on killing dogs?
My link was bad. Google for the story if you are interested.
Maybe this works?

So when a dem congressman refers to the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton as a ‘witch hunt’, should somebody be offended?

Hard to tell.

Are there ruby Jimmy Cho’s involved? Is the broom an Audi R8? Is the G650 named ‘The Flying Monkeys’? Can we fire back at the hunters with designer SIG Sauers (self defense is allowable if being hunted right…?) I need more details to form an option on this one.

Only if CNN reported a repub said it and that it came from a lynch mob. 😎

What, the new Savannah Mayor hasn’t fixed this yet? What… It has only gotten worse since he took office?

No charges for Hillary, but let’s wait a few days and see Comeys version: so far it appears, he didn’t talk to her, doesn’t know how many agents interviewed her, he did not talk to all of them, she was not under oath (but it is not nice to lie to the FBI), there was no transcript, just an analysis and the AG confirmed, nothing to see here, move on……..seems like this is a poor way to get past the concerns……and those lying books coming out from what we just thought were good guys….. The cash influx into the foundation… Read more »

Ok, I swore myself or The Pumpkin would say any mire about this but can my detractors comment on the optics of this? No oath, no transcript…Trump must think it’s Christmas in July! LMAO! Sheeeesh, this plays right into his two separate scales of justice meme. And he’s right! Lynch stinks, Hillary stinks and now even the sainted Comey…stinks!

Trey Gowdy…..maybe he will get some answers and maybe Comey’s FBI strange handling was a clever tactic……positive dreaming….

If there are answers to be found, I hardly think that Gowdy and his goofy haircut is going to be the one to find them. After all, this guy already led a multi-year, multi-million dollar investigation into Clinton and came up with a whole handful of nothing. Putting on my lawyer hat. In order to convict Clinton for perjury before Congress, any prosecutor would need to show that she intended to lie to Congress. While it may be easy for Sean Hannity to convince the legion of shut-ins and barely-functional morons that listen to his show that Hillary Clinton is… Read more »

Impeachment. What’s good for the goose.

Who are you going to impeach? Hillary Clinton is no longer in office. She can’t be impeached for things she’s done out of office. For heaven’s sake, the GOP seems committed to perpetually snatching defeat from the jaws of victory when it comes to the Clintons.

You’re thinking as a lawyer would, or an average intelligent observer, but you’re ignoring the obsessives who are convinced Clinton is an arch-fiend. If she wins in November, House gopers will file impeachment papers by February. It won’t be the first time they moved from rage and resentment to ignorant, extra-legal, self-defeating and enormously dangerous and divisive actions.

Funny you mention it, Vox had a great article about this yesterday:
http://www.vox.com/2016/7/7/12114140/republican-overreach-comey

Impeaching Hillary Clinton (for something she can’t be impeached for, seeing as her alleged misstatements to Congress 1) didn’t occur while she was President and 2) didn’t occur while she held any public office) would be the death knell of the House’s GOP majority. You know what? They should do it, IMPEACH CLINTON!!! Rabble rabble rabble!

Thanks. I’ll check out the Vox article.

I disagree the House majority is going anywhere, at least as long as leadership continues to appease the Freedom Caucus, and since trying to marginalize them would mean ceding leadership roles to the donks, it ain’t gonna happen.

“a prosecutor is not going to convince a judge of intent…”
Well, thank God he’s only gotta convince a JURY!

It’s called a Motion for Summary Judgment. If there is no evidence of intent for a jury to evaluate, the judge will dismiss the case before trial.
