It was bound to happen.
The republicans have begun eating their own as the clock ticks down to primary day on July 20. With so many competing for so few slots a bare minimum of political skulduggery was to be expected as the perceived front runners try to Mozambique each other out of the impending run-off.
Candidate Seth Harp's press release today was two-fer as he sent a broadside across the deck of the SS Hudgens over Ralphie boys inability to read, understand and comply with the State Ethics Board requirements for campaign finance reporting. As soon as the smoke cleared the sound of heavy artillery in the distance confirmed that the big shells had also landed square on the forehead of republican Gubernatorial candidate John Oxendine.
Most of it was dedicated to talking bad about Ralph but the last paragraph was my personal favorite, to wit:
Georgia’s Office of Insurance and Fire Commissioner is already operating from under a dark cloud of corruption and now Senator Hudgens’ campaign is following suit. Georgia can’t afford more of the same.
Is he talking bad about the OX? You betcha. And he should because John Oxendine is Georgia's version of that Blagojevich cat up in Illinois. Seth just needs to remember that the Ox ain't in this race and running against him is on page number one of my playbook. Stick to needling your direct opponents and leave the Ox to me.
I want to remind all of you Libertarians who are gonna play in the republican primary to be sure to vote for Maria Sheffield. My dream ballot reads like this:
Shane Bruce L
Maria Sheffield R
Mary Squires D
Headliner, Baby, Headliner.
