Gov. Nathan Deal’s team members have begun to turn on each other.
Last night, for the first time, Gov. Deal’s hand-picked ethics chief exposed how the governor’s top staffers used threats and intimidation to cover up the governor’s campaign finance scandal.
Despite Gov. Deal’s claims otherwise, this is the most compelling proof we’ve ever had that the cover-up was directed from inside the governor’s office.
The governor’s chief-of-staff and in-house counsel interfered with a state investigation into the governor’s campaign finances.
The state’s top ethics enforcer has placed the blame squarely in the governor’s office.
This is what a sinking ship looks like.
Only time will tell why the woman who was recruited for her ethics job by the governor’s office no longer believes Gov. Deal can protect her and has now turned to take aim at him.
It may be because the FBI now has the records that Attorney General Sam Olens kept out of the civil trial. Or it may simply be that the ethics chief knows even more than we do right now and the facts are against the governor.
Gov. Deal is desperate.
He will try to distract the public from this devastating scandal.
We cannot let that happen.
Finish the fight with us. Chip in $8 now.
