Or, you could simply read the AJC. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

Our newly elected Insurance Commissioner, Jim Beck, was in office for only 4 months before being under federal indictment. What for, you ask? Well, he embezzled roughly 2 million dollars from his former employer to help fund his election campaign, and that's just for starters.

It gets better: rather than resign in disgrace as most would, he asked Governor Brian Kemp to just suspend him rather than fire him or have him resign. Governor Kemp was perfectly OK with it and just suspended him.

So we, the taxpayers of Georgia, are paying Jim Beck, so to be convicted felon, $200,000.00 per year salary while he's on trial.

I'll go ahead and bet 10 bucks that part of the deal is Governor Kemp gets half that salary as a "gratuity".

It just never, ever ends with republicans. EVER.
