Governor Deal and the Recovery School District

Joash mentioned this in a post last week when Bobby Jindal came to down to stump for the governor, but I think this needs a little bit more discussion. I was kind of surprised that it hadn't come up in any of the comments either.

Remember the story of "The Little Engine That Could?" That could well describe the city of Dalton, a town of some 34,000 nestled in the corner of Northwest Georgia not far from the Tennessee line. In the oft-told tale, a long train must be pulled over a high mountain.

Ethics could tip scales in Georgia governor race

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has always managed to stay one step ahead of ethics scrapes, and the 72-year-old Republican will have to do it again in what is likely his last election campaign in this GOP-leaning state. Democratic challenger Jason Carter, a 39-year-old state senator and grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, is using multiple ethics investigations going back to Deal's tenure as a congressman to cast the governor as a politician who serially abuses public office for his own benefit.
