Well, alot of vicious statements have been made towards many people on this blog. But I think YOU have brought it to an all time low by slandering a child!!!! What kind of person are you? Certainly not a real man or woman. To come on here and accuse a BOY of something as serious as you have is absolutely uncalled for and sickens me, as I'm sure it does others. Whether you do or don't support Tommy Corbin is beside the question, but to verbally attack his children is unjustified. Therefore, I refuse to participate in anything that someone like you is a part of. I will not post on this blog again. I can find more honorable people to converse with on other internet blogs. I also encourage others to refrain from entering into any conversations with "HillbillyDa" as he/she is not up to your standards.

I agree that "HillbillyDa" has hit an all-time low with his comment about someone's child. It takes a weak person to stoop that low. It is obvious that you do not know Sheriff Corbin's son or you would know better. As it is, your unfounded comment only makes you sound like the fool that you are. DO NOT BRING SOMEONE'S CHILDREN INTO THIS TO HELP SATISFY YOUR OWN PERSONAL AGENDA!!!!!

i thought that by now everyone but fools realized that it was just rumors about corbins wife cheating on him, him beating her, etc. there was never any evidence of it actually happening. apparently HILLBILLYDA is about the only fool left who wants to keep that little lie circulating. & if that doesnt work, he will start in on the children. i guess the next thing he will come up with is that the youngest child beat up his child on the playground or something, & the deputies were 2 drunk 2 arrest the little boy 4 assault.

Even if the rumors were true, I do not see how any of then, with the exception of the domestic abuse, would make any candidate unqualified to be Sheriff.

First and foremost can you prove any of this or you just running your mouth..
Second do you know such statements can be held against you for slander and defamation of character. Also your computer can be traced back to you do not think you are invisible. Just because your i p address shows you just south of Tifton Ga does not mean your electronic fingerprint cannot be traced directly back to you.

Writing it down makes it libel not slander, slander is the spoken word. The statements are meant to hurt Tommy, who is a public official. Hillbilly has to show actual malice toward Tommy. Cowardly, yes. Illegal, no. Besides calling someone gay or an adulterer is a reach these days. I am sure Tommy, as most of us would, regards the comments as ignorant and brush them off.

it may not be so easy 4 a child to brush off the comments if he were to read them. that is what concerns me. tommy would be angry at the stupidity of hillbilly; but how would his son feel at his age?

anyway you slice it hillbilly da is a cheap coward and I agree with an earlier poster he is not worth the time or effort to offer a rebuttal to.
Probably the candidate of his choice got defeated and he is feeling displeasure.
We are granted the right to choose a candidate who best reflects our thoughts and I feel since his person of choice lost he is just plain mad(lol)

I have to say there was no need to bring a child into this. No matter how ANY child may act,look,talk,or what ever else they should never be brought up for negative talk. You should be ashame of your self. A child is a child no matter what!!

I have read many negative post about Sheriff Corbin on here and I know that most of these comments are rumors and lies. I have known Corbin for many many years now and I can see a small change in him since he has become sheriff. But that does not make him a bad person. Everyone can get side tracked at some point. I believe that Corbin could be the good hearted person that he use to be, but I can honestly say that I believe Danny Phillips is the man for the job. I do not have anything against Corbin, but he just isn't sheriff material. Vote Danny Phillips for Sheriff!! He is a honest, dependable man. His word is his bond. If he tells you he is going to do something, you know he will. Please vote for Danny. Soperton is in need of a change and Danny will be one of the first positive changes that we have seen in a long time.

u r welcome 2 ur opinion 2. danny may b honest, dependable, & his word may b his bond. but i think the same thing about tommy. u may not believe he is honest, dependable, etc., but that may just b n your dealings w/ him. in my dealings, he still has those qualities, so i have no reason to vote against him.
