The couples that twerk together are racist jerks together

I guess you heard by now that the Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley resigned last night over having an affair, leaving us with now-Gov. Kay Ivey. But his girlfriend sounds like a real swell gal, doesn’t she?

Governor Robert Bentley’s former top advisor and secret paramour Rebekah Mason led a politically-motivated effort in 2015 to close 31 driver’s license offices in mostly black counties, a move that embarrassed the state and was later reversed.

The decision also led to a federal investigation and drew civil rights protesters such as Jesse Jackson to the state.

Mason’s role was highlighted in a 131-page report released Friday by the investigator leading impeachment efforts against Gov. Bentley, a report largely focused on the relationship between Mason and Bentley.

The report and exhibits can be found here.

According to that report, which was compiled by lead investigator Jack Sharman, it was Mason who “proposed closing multiple driver’s license offices throughout the State” and asked the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency to “put together a plan.”

Senator David Perdue doesn’t “do” Townhalls …

Senator Perdue does not prefer to do Town Hall meetings, as he prefers more “one on one” meetings with constituents (donors and businesses.)

So, he has “Office Hours” events that he does not attend as had his aids there on his behalf. There are some people that thought that just wasn’t acceptable and decided to show up (about 175) at his event in McDonough, GA, a town just south of the Atlanta sprawl. This place is not a Democratic stronghold by any means. This is the second “Office Hours” during the recess, the first one on Grensboro, GA, a joint event with Senator Isakson and Congressman Jody Hice. That meeting had overflowing crowds that were pretty darn vocal.

Local activists and advocate are planning more demonstrations calling for Town Halls by Senators Perdue and Isakson during the recess.
I haven’t seen Georgia get so fired up since the march in Forsyth County in 1987.

Glad to see it.

Donald Trump refuses to release tax returns because ‘I won’

If Trump Wants a ‘Hacking Defense’ Strategy, He Should Just Use Obama’s

Arriving late to what was supposed to amount to a press conference, Trump, as expected, avoided answering any questions of a ‘delicate’ manner. Never mind the latest revelations from intelligence, someone asked him if he would release the tax returns. I’m sure you can guess what his response was. REPORTER: Do you believe the hacking was… Continue Reading →

Dear Leader is such a great guy

mitt romney continues to shine

Trump is a Heather at heart:

Donald Trump’s long-time but informal adviser Roger Stone says the Secretary of State job was dangled in front of Mitt Romney in order to “torture” him for previously opposing the president-elect.

During a Sunday appearance on InfoWars with Alex Jones, a conspiratorial media outlet that has become a mouthpiece of the next president, Stone called Romney a “choker” and said that Trump was simply toying with him.

“Donald Trump was interviewing Mitt Romney for Secretary of State in order to torture him,” Stone claimed on the program. “To toy with him. And given the history, that’s completely understandable. Mitt Romney crossed a line. He didn’t just oppose Trump, which is his democratic right, he called him a phony and a fraud. And a con man. And that’s not the kind of man you want as Secretary of State.”
