Yesterday Georgians thought the Vernon Jones cancer might finally be exorcised from our body politic. Well guess what: we were fools think Rep. Jones (D-Slimeball) would go out gracefully. He should just switch parties at this point. He fits in believing he’s a victim and with his thought-free flipflopping.
Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Slimeball) has carried a cloud of controversy over Georgia politics for 20 years with no signs of letting up.

Scott Bonder, a DeKalb County commercial litigation attorney serving on the newly-constituted board of ethics, resigned yesterday in protest of legislative changes proposed this year. House members advanced a bill to change the appointment process for the board, in anticipation of a court ruling in a lawsuit by former county commissioner Sharon Barnes-Sutton that may
The folks over at the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund have issued their endorsements for next week’s elections.

Elections for the new city of Stonecrest started off with a curious, interesting dispute over the age of a city council candidate, and have devolved over time into one of the ugliest political races DeKalb County has had in quite a while. And yes, that’s saying something. Mystery mailers — a staple of DeKalb politics
I am imagining the moment Burrell Ellis walks back into his old office as DeKalb CEO once again, reinstated with three weeks left in his term in office, after eight months in stir and a year of appeal time to contemplate just where to stick the shiv. How easy might it be for him to
