Update to Disgraced Former Democrat State Representative

Earlier I posted about Ga State Representative Ron Sailor who was forced to resign after being found guilty of money laundering.

Well he is back in the news and this time while they didn't lead the story with his party they did manage to work it in.

What is interesting in this update is that the (Honorable) former representative has some ties to former Dekalb county CEO--yes, that is what they call the head of the county government over there and don't ask me why. They're Democrats ought to be good enough.

Why is this important? This same CEO is running on the Democrat ticket to oppose Sen, Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). So a Democrat tied to another Democrat seeking federal office who is involved in taking bribes, er donations, durn it, loans from lobbyists.
Confused? Maybe this will clear it up.
Sailor, a pastor, used a 54-acre farm owned by DeKalb Chief Executive Officer Vernon Jones as collateral for the loan, property records show. Wiltshire said Sailor claimed he had an agreement to buy the property.

Jones said Monday he knew nothing about the transaction and called for an investigation into the deal.

"If this happened, that's bizarre and that's fraud," Jones said.

Jones, a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Saxby Chambliss, said he first heard about the deal Friday, when a Journal-Constitution reporter asked him about Sailor's use of the property as collateral.

Jones said the property had been for sale, and Sailor had said he might want to buy it.

"He expressed an interest in purchasing my property and he did not purchase it," Jones said. "Apparently he acted inappropriately and he is having to answer those issues."

Vernon Jones has had his own history of scandals including charges of rape, which were mysteriously dropped when the bimbo got a "settlement" and corruption while acting as the head of Dekalb county. DeKalb's most famous resident is Cynthia McKinney.
