It would have probably been cheaper for us taxpayers to fly Diane's family up here to one of the Guv's palaces than to have him and his bodyguards and the rest of the Guv's family fly to Atlanta...however, it is so much easier to spend other people's money than one's own, altho' he did spring for his own ticket...way to go, Guv.

Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, is "the first African American woman to serve as mayor of a major southern city." Think power politics, think ambition, think appointment as an ambassador to a Caribbean Island paradise, think Pork Bill money, think invitations to State Dinners at the Obama Palace to eat royal radishes from the Palace garden.

Following the money, connecting the dots:

Simon Property Group owns Gwinnett Place Mall.
Melvin Simon (a Forbes 400 billionaire) is Co-chairman of Simon Property Group, Inc.
Melvin Simon has provided large political contributions to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Al Franken, John Edwards, the DNC and many other Democrats and Democrat organizations.
Melvin Simon was a major contributor to Barack Obama inaugural committee and has given at least $1 million to the William J. Clinton foundation.
Melvin's wife, Bren, personally donated almost $100,000 to various political candidates, was a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential bid, and contributed to President Obama's inaugural committee.
