Georgia candidates for governor: “sex, lies, and lobbyists”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution discusses lobbyists’ contributions to candidates for governor in Georgia.

In the wake of a lobbyist scandal that cost House Speaker Glenn Richardson his job, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution analyzed the records of the major gubernatorial candidates and found all have taken contributions and/or gifts from lobbyists. The contribution totals range from $118,000 over the past four years for Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine to a single, $150 contribution from a Washington, D.C., lobbyist to former Gov. Roy Barnes.
