Ralph Reed Running for Lt. Governor of Georgia


Someone who Abramoff thinks is dishonest! That's pretty bad.
"He is a bad version of us! No more money for him."

-- Abramoff, in a January 2002 e-mail to Michael Scanlon, complaining about Reed's billing practices.

He wants to hold the second-highest executive office in the state.
I bet he will, too. Because he's a "Christian" and yokels eat that shit up with a spoon.
Lt. Governor "has a great deal of influence on state policy and the establishment of spending priorities."

Reed said "We believe gambling is a cancer on the American body politic. It is stealing food from the mouths of children… [and] turning wives into widows.”
He drummed up tons and tons of Christian anti-gambling protests, on moral and religious grounds, when in actuality he was getting paid buttloads of gambling revenue $$$$ by Abramoff because it threatened one of his own gambling clients.


State Primary Elections are July 18.

What would that do to the Indian Reservations?? I know it's not a perfect solution - but haven't we taken enough from those poor people already? Sheese.

Sources? You want credible sources?! heh...
...well one article is the one from several posts ago--time for heresy by bill moyers. and then from npr, "Six Degrees of Abramoff" http://www.npr.org/news/specials/abramoff/sixdegrees/
then from the Washington Post: "Unraveling Abramoff" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/custom/2005/12/23/CU2005122300939.html)

How cool would it be to have your picture on the cover of TIME magazine next to the phrase "The Right Hand of God" looking all black and white and badass... Even though I think this guy is a f'n tool and I would sooner he get hit by a truck than be elected to ANY office in my state... You gotta admit that'd be pretty cool.
