GA Gov Race - Barnes Responds to Ethics Complaint - One Day Before Due

Gary Scott Holt | October 29, 2010 at 12:44 pm |

Wednesday, Barnes' attorney, Michael Jablonski, filed a response with the State Ethics Commission regarding the complaint alleging that Barnes failed to report financial disclosure reports while serving as a Georgia registered lobbyist in 2007. The written response mirrors the comments made by Barnes' spokesman, Chris Carpenter, in a May 2010 Savannah Morning News article by Larry Peterson.  Read more of this post

GA Gov Race - Deal Camp Dispels 'Anti-Women' Myth

Brian Robinson, spokesman for the Nathan Deal Republican gubernatorial campaign, in an email interview, provided short concise answers to recent allegations that Deal is 'anti-women'.  One could speculate from its short nature that Robinson is frustrated with ridiculous and redundant questions about Deal's record and character.   In a pathetic attempt to claw away [...]

To Women for Deal
We are almost there but we cannot afford to stop prematurely.  Please join me and other Women For Deal this Saturday, October 30 from 4:00p-5:30p to GOTV for Nathan Deal for governor.  The location is 2285 Austell Road, Marietta, GA.   This is an area of Cobb County that we really need to have a strong presence in and one in which we can pick up some votes (it is believed to be strong Roy Barnes/David Scott/Democrat territory).  I am a firm believer that we can pick up votes in South Cobb as any other part of the State if only we try.  Let's be mindful that every vote will count and that we are striving hard to WIN without going into a runoff.  I cannot stress enough how much we need everyone fully engaged during these last 5 days.  I pause to again say Thank You for all of you who came from near and far to participate in the vigil Tuesday night.  Now let's keep going and going and going some more until we reach the finish line next Tuesday night when the results come pouring in declaring our own Nathan Deal as the next governor of the state of Georgia.
In addition to our Women For Deal supporters, there will be other Republican candidates in attendance on Saturday as we get out the vote for Nathan Deal.  We have a number of Republican candidates who seek to serve the residents of South Cobb in the State House and State Senate and we want to see all of them successful in their races so that they are in place to support Nathan.  We also have a U.S. Congressional candidate who seeks to unseat David Scott that we want to see successful in his race. 
On Saturday, please wear your Women For Deal tshirts or other Deal Gear.  I will have lapel stickers and the Women For Deal signs that we had at the vigil for the sign waving.   Remember we WIN (Women In Numbers) when we all work together and recognize the strength of numbers and the value of each woman.
For those of you who live outside the Atlanta metro area and simply cannot be with us on Saturday, we understand and know that your support is still 100% with Nathan, Sandra, and the rest of the family.  Keep praying and working hard as I know that all of you are doing.  Keep sending me the pictures and other information concerning your local GOTV for Nathan Deal efforts.
For the debate this Sunday, please try to attend a debate watch party in your local area.  If you do not know if one has been planned in your area, call me (6789236939).  If there isn't one, consider hosting one yourself and send me the details so that others may join you.
Please SAVE THE DATE for Monday, November 1st.  WE are doing a statewide WOMEN FOR DEAL GOTV.  Details will be forthcoming re: meeting location in your area.  Please do your best to attend and show your support for Nathan.  I remind you that over 50% of the vote in our state will come from women so let's continue to show our support for Nathan and GOTV.
In closing, I echo the words of Sandra and Nathan that I consistently hear them say as we see you all on the campaign trail,  THANK YOU.  While these two simple words often seem inadequate to express deep and sincere gratitude, please know that all of your personal sacrifices, time away from your families and friends, and all around hard work is appreciated!!!!   Please make plans to visit the GOP HQ closest to you on Sunday so that you can visit with him for awhile.  See schedule here:

GA Gov Race - Women For and Against Deal - Do Battle

Gary Scott Holt | October 27, 2010 at 2:08 pm |  Nathan Deal, Republican, Roy Barnes,
US Politics | URL: 

Unusual for late October, it was a balmy evening on what would normally
be a quiet Buckhead side street. Four Atlanta police officers and two
security guards stood watch as former congressman Nathan Deal and
former governor Roy Barnes' female supporters expressed their views in various ways, from
signs to song to chant to prayer.

Women Against Deal (WAD) maintain that they are a spontaneous movement that has nothing to do with Barnes' campaign... Last Sunday, the Deal camp discovered that WAD was planning a demonstration for Tuesday evening in front of Deal's campaign headquarters to protest what they consider to be
the 'anti-women's protection candidate'. The body count on the Barnes' side of the isle was twenty four. The Deal ladies, Women for Deal (WFD), attended in full force with sixty three, outnumbering their opponents by almost three to one.

Message from GA House Speaker Pro-Tempore Jan Jones
Please forward to your e-mail lists:

You can't make this stuff up ...Roy Barnes

Dear Friends (mostly the ladies this time):

In his quest to recapture the throne, Roy Barnes will stoop to anything to eviscerate Nathan Deal’s support.  Now he’s gone after the women…

You just can’t make this stuff up.  Get this … he’s organized a “candlelight vigil” at Nathan’s campaign headquarters in Buckhead at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, for Women Against Domestic Violence.

Barnes is condescending to women at best, smarmy at worst. 

His low-class “rape” TV and radio ads just don’t add up when contrasted with Nathan, a well-respected public servant, Sunday School teacher, former juvenile judge, tough prosecutor and captain in the U.S. Army.

Well, I know the title of the vigil, “Women Against Domestic Violence,” encompasses us, right?  Absolutely.

If you can make it, please join me there at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at 3120 Maple Drive, Atlanta, GA 30305.   I don’t know Barnes personally, but I do know Deal and his supporters (female and male) are against domestic violence.  And we’re proud to support Nathan – husband, father of daughters, grandfather of granddaughters AND former tough prosecutor of domestic violent offenders. 

Whether you can make it or not, please pass the information along to other women so they can read what Barnes is up to.  Some may want to attend the vigil as well.


1.       I attached a film clip from a WSB-TV news story by Atlanta Reporter Lori Geary.  In the clip, a woman speaks out against Barnes’ absurd attacks on Nathan regarding women.  As background, the woman approached Nathan and Sandra recently in a diner after recognizing him.  Nathan prosecuted and obtained a conviction for her attacker many years ago, a man that raped and impregnated her at age 14.  She quietly says Nathan saved her life and came forward as a way of thanking him.  You’ll want to see the clip if you haven’t already.  It’s pretty powerful.

2.       I also attached a Facebook blog posting by Nathan’s daughter about the Barnes’ vigil.

Thanks for reading.  Here’s to victory on November 2!

Reverse Roy: President Obama
This week, while addressing state of Georgia retirees in Forsyth, Democrat Roy Barnes took a break from his spirited defense of tax hikes to separate himself from President Obama.
"There has been an effort in this election to nationalize this election,” Barnes said Tuesday. “Everything is Obama this. Listen, I don't agree with him either.”
But Barnes has been more than happy to solicit the president’s help to appeal to Democratic voters. In fact, Obama has appeared in a mail piece and recorded a robocall on behalf of Barnes and other Georgia liberals.
"I need you to help elect good Democratic allies in Georgia who will work with me to create jobs," President Obama says on the phone call.
“It’s little wonder the president sees Barnes as an ally,” said Deal for Governor spokesman Brian Robinson. “After all, Barnes gave him the maximum contribution and voted for him in 2008 – after serving a leadership role in Georgia for the campaign of even-more-left-wing John Edwards.”
According to today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Barnes said he was unaware of Obama’s robocall.
“Roy Barnes says he didn’t know the president of the United States – the most powerful and famous man in the world – was doing a phone call on his behalf. This all in the same week where he says he wasn’t responsible for his own ads that doctor footage and pass it off as reality. Georgians have to ask: Is this ignorance or gross deception? It’s appropriate for Roy to do news conferences with cows because he seems to keep stepping in it.”

Personal note below from attendee Carolyn Reagan (Pulaski County Campaign Chairman For Nathan Deal) 
Hello Everyone,
I had an absolutely awesome day in Atlanta today. Mt daughter, Debra, my granddaughter, Ashley, and I went up to Atlanta for a rally for Nathan Deal.  Mike Huckabee was the guest speaker.  It was great!!  I was center front, and my daughter got some good pictures.  She was able to get one with Mike Huckabee and me, and with Nathan Deal and me.  I got both of them to sign a poster I had carried.   After the rally, a man with a microphone came up to me and said he would like to interview me.  He was with an Atlanta T. V. Station.  I forget which one.  Then right after that, a man came up and wanted to know my name.  He said he had taken a picture of me with Mike Huckabee.  He told me he was with the Associated Press.  He is the same guy from the AP that took my picture with my friend at the debate held at the Ga. National Fair a few days ago.  Now how cool is that!!!!   Now, I've got to go on line and see if I can find them.  He said he sends them out all over......and the different papers can choose to use them or not.  And I was standing next to a guy with a huge camera, and he told me he was with the Atlanta Journal.  He said if I got my picture made with Huckabee that he wanted to make one too.  So, I guess now I'll have to read the Atlanta  Journal on line to see if my picture made it in there!!  Anyway, Mike Huckabee made a great speech!  And there was a good crowd there and we made lots of noise!!!  It was a wonderful day!!!

GA Gov Race - Mike Huckabee, Nathan Deal, or Frisky and Tiger?

Mike Huckabee, the 2008 Republican Presidential candidate that swept up the Georgia primary vote to victory with 34%, stumped for Nathan Deal last Thursday at the 57th Fighter Wing restaurant on Clairmont Road in Atlanta. Deal, army veteran and Republican candidate for governor, worked with Huckabee several years ago when he appeared before congress. At the time, Deal was the ranking member of the Congressional Committee on Energy and Commerce (Subcommittee on Health), and Huckabee was the Governor of Arkansas.  Read more of this post

Neal Boortz on Barnes and the despicable rape shield law accusation


By Neal Boortz @ October 20, 2010 9:20 AM

I'm talking about Roy Barnes, the Democrat running for Governor of Georgia.  Now Barnes has made it absolutely clear throughout the campaign that he will be the teacher's union governor if he's elected.  Thinking Georgians know that they can kiss any chances of school reform, school choice and teacher accountability goodbye for the next four years if Barnes is elected. Over the past few days Barnes has engaged in what I think are absolutely the sleaziest campaign advertisements I've ever seen.  Roy Barnes is trying to make women in Georgia think that if Nathan Deal is elected governor they might be raped.

2010 Proposed Amendments and Ballot Questions
Submitted by Bob Griggs of Talk Gwinnett

The November General Election ballot will contain several proposed amendments to the Georgia Constitution. Without a little explanation, some of the questions will make no sense at all. At least one proposed amendment applies, currently, to just two Georgia counties. The following information  will allow you to cast at least a semi-informed vote on these issues!  Read entire article

Many thanks to Bob Griggs for analyzing this.

Roy-onomics: Washington’s Stimulus Failed, and Barnes Demands a Similar Plan for Georgia

Press Contact: Whitney H. Gibbs- Georgia Republican Party
Atlanta—One of Roy Barnes’ many campaign promises is to create jobs by retrofitting state buildings to make them more energy efficient. Does this strategy sound familiar? As part of its failed stimulus plan, the federal government “created” jobs by employing individuals for short-term projects. When the project was over, individuals found themselves still unemployed and government was left holding the tab.“With 10 percent unemployment in Georgia, we know the stimulus didn’t solve our nation’s economic problems,” said Georgia Republican Party Chairman Sue Everhart. “Georgians are asking for less government spending, and Roy still isn’t listening.”

The Rest of the Landfill Story NOT reported
by the liberal Georgia media. . .

Response to negative Landfill reports about Nathan Deal
1.  This is a great project for Hall County. It’s turning a dirty, out-of-date dump into a 21st century green facility at PRIVATE expense. It will recycle long-buried trash and it will recycle construction and demolition remains in the new area. This is backed up by other local officials who invited Nathan’s participation, such as County Commission Chairman Tom Oliver.
2.   Nathan has no financial interest in the landfill. He removed himself from the property in 2003 once there was a determination of how the land would be used.
3.   The landfill is a separate corporation owned solely by Ken Cronan. It’s success or failure would have no effect on GSD or Nathan Deal.
4.   The county rezoning application had GSD on it and it was signed by Nathan because a portion of the land submitted for rezoning belongs to GSD. That’s the only connection to GSD.
5.   The permit application submitted to the state EPD was from a corporation owned solely by Ken Cronan b/c it had only to do with the landfill, a project in which Nathan has no financial interest or ownership.
6.   Chris Riley set up meetings; there’s nothing wrong with that. Chris was a chief of staff based in the district. In accordance with House rules, Chris facilitated meetings with government agencies on the municipal, county and state levels. He did casework that involved driver’s licenses (state), DFACS (state), water reservoirs (county and state) and even trash pickup (municipal).
7.   House rules clearly show that it’s appropriate for a member of Congress to work with state and local governments at the request of constituents. Lawyers have repeatedly confirmed that there are no violations. We rely on the advice of counsel.
Statement from Brian Robinson: “Nathan and his office advocated for and worked on the regulatory process to turn an old city landfill into a modern, green facility at no cost to taxpayers. Nathan has absolutely no financial interest in the project. The project enjoys the support of local leaders in Hall County. The regulatory process required many meetings because existing state law didn’t envision a modern project such as this, where old garbage is recycled and the remainder is placed into a green, lined facility. If this project proves financially feasible, it could serve a model for other Georgia communities with ‘dirty,’ unlined landfills. In fact, Nathan included projects such as this in his ‘Real Sustainability’ plan on our web site. It’s good for the county, it’s good for the state, it’s good for the country.”

Why We Will Win -
by Randy Evans
This is an important message for our folks. Everyone should be prepared for a steady diet of the politics of personal destruction campaign by the Barnes campaign aided by the mainstream media. First, they start with the false statements about a Grand Jury that never existed. Then, they attack for a father supporting his children (and standing behind his commitments) which had no traction. Then, they turn to complaints that not even CREW would file in its outlandish complaints. Now, like President Obama attacking the U. S. Chamber with unfounded allegations, they attack donors (good Georgia businesses who actually employ people), with false attacks. Oddly, the one person that we know that gave more than the law allows to a campaign was Roy Barnes who gave over the legal limit to Barack Obama, and the Obama campaign had to return $2,300.)

Nathan Deal is a good man, a loving father, and a dedicated public servant. He is Barnes' worst nightmare and Georgia's best hope because he is everything that Barnes is not. Nathan Deal has been a job creator as a small businessman and as a legislator. Roy Barnes has been a job killer as a plaintiffs trial lawyer who makes millions suing Georgians (appearing before judges he appoints after they made contributions to him) and by what he did as governor. Stay firm and defend our job creator and nominee because he deserves our support.

Georgia could not afford Barack Obama policies through a Barnes administration. We all have to do our part at this historical moment in our country's and state's future.




Two Debates on October 14

For any of you that might be interested, this Thursday, Oct. 14th, there will be two debates at the Ga. National Fair in Perry. Roy Barnes and Nathan Deal will debate from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, and Jim Marshall and Austin Scott will debate at 8:30 pm. Hope you can come out and support both Nathan Deal and Austin Scott!!  Please forward to those on your e-mail list.  let's have a good crowd there to support Nathan and Austin!!!

 In little more than a year on the bench, David Nahmias has tilted the ideological leanings of the Georgia Supreme Court decidedly to the right.

A reliably conservative vote, Nahmias replaced the court's most liberal member, Leah Ward Sears, the former chief justice who resigned before her term expired. Gov. Sonny Perdue made the appointment after receiving glowing recommendations in support of Nahmias from U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia.

Nahmias must now stand for election, and he has two lawyers seeking to unseat him. One of the challengers, Atlanta lawyer Matt Wilson, is waging an aggressive campaign, criticizing Nahmias for some of his votes; the other, Lawrenceville lawyer Tamela Adkins, has chosen to not campaign at all.

Justice David Nahmias receives positive rating from 95% of those responding to State Bar Poll.

▪ A Karen Handel campaigner declares for Roy Barnes
October 11, 2010,
by Jim Galloway
One of the boys and girls (but mostly boys) over at conservative-leaning
PeachPundit is engaged in a little rebellion. Clint Murphy, a Savannah Republican activist and most lately a member of Karen Handel’s gubernatorial campaign, has declared that he’ll vote for Democrat Roy Barnes in November. Read more in the AJC if you can bear it. 
Read more in the Savannah paper: Murphy aTwitter about Nathan Deal

Murphy, a long time pundit on the Peach Pundit, went under the alias of Bull Moose. His sour grapes reaction is not surprising. He was a disappointing leader in the failed McCain for President race in Georgia in 2008. The liberal AJC  is salivating over the few crazies who call themselves Republicans and take this cowardly course of action. The AJC is desperate to grab anything which might help them put back in office the failed former governor who was fired in 2002.  If you are so inclined, go to the AJC and post your comments. As you know, most of the people who post there are die hard libs. -- Bettye Chambers

Quite a few questions evolve as one studies Barnes' published tax returns. For example: How did Barnes make $1.28 million in the same year he performed pro bono (without compensation) work for Legal Aid? Why did Barnes withdraw over a million dollars each year for the last two years from his IRA fund?  Why, in four out of eleven years, did Barnes not pay his taxes ratably or timely? Why did Barnes not release asset statements when Deal did?

GOP Well Positioned Among Likely Midterm Voters

by Frank Newport, Jeffrey M. Jones, and Lydia Saad
PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's generic ballot for Congress among registered voters currently shows Republicans with 46% of the vote and Democrats with 43%, similar to the 46% to 46% tie reported a week ago. However, in Gallup's first estimates among likely voters, based on polling from Sept. 23-Oct. 3, Republicans have a double-digit advantage under two separate turnout scenarios. - Read more on Galllup website

Reverse Roy: Democrat Party
In September 2009, Democrat Roy Barnes began the long process of distancing himself from his toxic party brand: “I’m fed up with both the Democrats and the Republicans. I’d be a Bull Moose or a Whig if they still had a party,” Barnes told the Gwinnett Post.
But Roy Barnes’ tenure as governor ranks as perhaps the most partisan in our state’s history. In 2001, Barnes hijacked the redistricting process to in a desperate attempt to keep Democrats in power as the state was trending heavily Republican. Above is a copy of the state Senate map that Barnes strong-armed through the Legislature:
“The 2001 state Senate map that Roy Barnes drew still lives in infamy,” said Deal spokesman Brian Robinson. “The Barnes maps cared for nothing but political advantage. Traditional communities of interest were torn apart. The districts gave no concern to serving Georgians. The one and only interest was in letting Democrats hang on to power long after voters had rejected their leadership. It was a shameless effort to disenfranchise Georgians. One district stretched from Cherokee County to the Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina lines.  The 24th District stretched from the Augusta suburbs to west Georgia counties south of Atlanta. The 16th District snaked north from Columbus and then back down to areas south of Macon.
“Part of Roy Reinvention 2010 is pretending he’s not a partisan Democrat – that he’d be a Bull Moose or Whig if he could. In fact, Barnes is such an extreme partisan that his legislative maps were declared illegal by the courts and his congressional map was tossed by the Legislature in a rare mid-decade redistricting. Barnes’ partisan power grab in 2001 embarrassed members of his own party. No one in Georgia’s modern history has done more to turn our electoral system into a laughingstock. Roy Barnes hopes we’ve forgotten. We haven’t.”

Certain negative words may backfire and destroy the attacking candidate

Recent Roy Barnes ad about Nathan Deal:
"Slippery as a bag of snakes. I guess we can call him a shady Deal. Nathan Deal. too corrupt, even for Congress. "

Remember Deal's earlier opponent who called him a "Corrupt Relic"?  No doubt those two negative words crossed the line and helped defeat that candidate in the runoff. Click above to review King Roy's recent ad.

Message from Sue Everhart,
GA GOP Chairman

There is one thing that we must remember here in Georgia...something that makes this perhaps the most vital election in the last ten years....
As most of you know, redistricting, or the re-drawing of Congressional and Georgia General Assembly district lines, takes place every ten years.

Do you remember who the Governor of Georgia was ten years ago? That's right, none other than King Roy himself. Roy Barnes and his Democratic allies made a mockery of our state when the state House and Senate maps they drew were thrown out by a federal court. That court called Barnes' maps "an unambiguous attempt to hold onto as much of that political power as they {Democrats} could."  Read more
