Stacey Abrams was once a public official I liked… A LOT! But what a disappointment she’s turned out to be with both her leadership and ethics.

Is in Atlanta Law Firm committing retaliation for a father and his attorney speaking out against corruption? You be the judge…. The law firm Meriwether & Tharp seeking more than $54,000 from a court order that was vacated two-and-a-half years ago and there has been no further activity in the case since that time.

Last week I filed ethics complaints with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission (state ethics commission) against gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams (D) and Casey Cagle (R). Here’s an update: Abrams: I am filing a second complaint against Abrams today for using campaign funds and resources to promote sales of her newly released book.
