The funny part is that Ryans seat is probably going to flip. He is not in a very republican district. Its like R+2.
This election would make me happy if
1. Marsha Blackburn loses
2. Dave Brat (VA-7) loses
They are the more obnoxious people in politics (and biggest liars). Nice that I can scratch Ryan off the list. I guess he ran out of snake oil.

I’ve seen some PTA’s in action. He might not win a position there. He’d be better off with some non-profit, like suppressthevote.org or something.

What has politics in Dade come down to if a sheriff can’t take a few lovely parting gifts on their way out. $2800 in Men’s Warehouse suits? LOL

Thanks for the link, Will. That ex-sheriff is lucky to stay out of the slam. Some counties I know, cashing in on confiscated goats can get you hanged.

Yeah, we all know how some Georgia sheriffs have grown attached to their asset forfeiture slush funds but literally getting a man’s goat for personal gain was just beyond the pale.
