Another day another story about Oxedine that should give voters pause.
Last May, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that two Rome, Ga. insurance companies – State Mutual Insurance Co. and Admiral Life Insurance Co. – sent checks to the 10 PACS. The insurance companies are both headed by the same CEO, Delos “Dee” Yancey III. The PACs are administered by the son of Donald V. Watkins, the head of the bank who also sits on the board of both insurance companies. The bank also once was co-owned by Yancey’s father.
Most of the PACs had little or no money in their accounts before the infusion of cash.
Once the payments were made from the insurance companies, the PACs each sent $12,000 – a total of $120,000 — to Oxendine’s campaign. The money was all sent in the same amounts and on the same dates from all the PACs.
The banks that handled the accounts have been subpoenaed by the State Ethics Commission, but as they are in Alabama, they are refusing to honor the subpoenas. Now the Attorney General will probably get involved and ask a court in Alabama to have the banks honor the subpoena request.
This will just keep this story alive to keep clubbing the Ox.
I get that Georgia Primary voters know Ox more than most of the other candidates because he’s been kissing their butts since 1994. It’s not them I’m worried about. It’s the non-primary voters who can quickly see through the pandering veneer into what a reckless politician he is.
Hopefully primary voters will be smart enough to see the danger and reject Oxendine. The best thing that could happen to the Georgia GOP is to see the end of Oxendine’s political career.
Unless a subpoena comes from the same state as the Insurance Companies are in, they don't have to turn over any information. And I don't see the problem in Businesses giving money to the PAC's of their choice. This is just nonsense manufactured by the radical left and neo-cons like Erickson. I am comforted that Georgia Primary voters know Ox more than most of the other candidates because of his selfless public service since 1994. It’s not them I’m worried about. It’s the non-primary voters who can quickly be influenced by Lefties and Neo-Cons that they don't see what an honorable politician he is. Hopefully, primary voters will be smart enough to see the BS the progressives are manufacturing and vote Oxendine. The best thing that could happen to the Georgia GOP is to see Oxendine’s election to the Governorship.
