Rather than take responsibility for his own economic failures, Nathan Deal has a bizarre explanation for why Georgia has the highest unemployment rate in the nation.

You are about to enter another dimension—a dimension not only of deranged ramblings and half-remembered fever dreams, but of paranoia and conspiracy theories. Next stop—Nathan Deal’s Conspiracy Zone…

Carter commercial targets Gov. Deal's deal with company that still owes state $74 million

While Gov. Deal has gone from rags to riches since taking office, many Georgians still struggle to pay their bills.

Georgia’s jobless rate is now 50th in the nation -- only Mississippi’s is worse. These figures are the direct result of Gov. Deal’s policies that help himself, his business cronies and his family but few other Georgians.

National Republicans building Fake local News sites to attack Democrats

The House GOP campaign arm, previously criticized for phony Democratic candidate sites, is now in the faux-news game, according to National Journal writer Shane Goldmacher.

In an article published today here, Goldmacher illustrates the charge that the National Republican Congressional Committee is out doing dirty tricks by citing a false local news site called "Augusta Update" to slam Congressman John Barrow (D-GA) and advertising the fake news site heavily on Google.

The pages, another linked example displays the header "Central Valley (CA) Update" and it, along with others, offer a link to the National Republican Campaign Committee at the bottom of the page inches below any other content.

Andrea Bozek, NRCC communications director, said these faux news pages which target 20 or more Democratic Congressmen, are a 'new and effective way to disseminate information to voters.'

Political strategists, Goldmachers' article says, note that voters are weary and dubious of political attacks that come complete with dark clouds and ominous music tracks. By wrapping their partisan attack in the language of a fact-checking local news site, they believe, will help the message hit home more effectively.

Democratic strategists like Ryan Rudominer, who previously worked for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, asserted that it is a character issue that Republicans resort repeated to deceptive tactics to push their political agenda. The GOP's toxicity and desperation come to mind, he said.

The articles author was somewhat surprised by the boldness of the NRCC's use of fake news sites considering the blow back from The NRCC got from look-alike candidate pages, which National Journal first reported may have violated federal election rules. These sites appear to be within legal limits, unlike those, which did come to the attention of the Federal Election Commission. Those sites raised legal issues because they sought campaign contributions on behalf, not of the candidates advertised, but their competition. (It would be like thinking you were ordering a Papa Johns Pizza from a site you thought was Papa Johns but actually getting a Domino's pizza instead because they created a fake site.)

The use of fake news sites doesn't involve the legality of snatching donations intended for another candidate.

Bozek, the NRCC communications director, replied, "They're jealous that they didn't think of this strategy first."

Michelle Nunn, Sen. Jason Carter, Connie Stokes and other statewide candidates to be featured at Democratic State Convention

Atlanta, GA – The Democratic Party of Georgia will hold its quadrennial State Convention on Saturday, August, 9 in Dublin, Georgia at the DuBose Porter Regional Business and Industry Center. Senator Steve Henson and Representative Stacey Abrams will be co-chairing the event.

“We’re bringing our convention to Georgia’s heartland.” said Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter. “The selection of Laurens County to host this event should assure everyone that we will be working in all 159 counties. We have been and will be campaigning in the middle of Georgia and every corner of this state—North, South, East, and West.”

The purpose of the State Convention is to inspire and promote unity among Georgia Democrats in order to support and elect our nominees up and down the ballot to government offices at every level.

“As Chair, the most exciting part of the convention will be presenting our slate of statewide candidates. For months, our candidates have been making the case for Georgia Democrats,” concluded Chairman Porter. “The State Convention will give us an opportunity to speak with a unified voice—Republicans have ruined Georgia. They have wrecked education, job training, transportation, health care, and our environment. We have a better plan for our state’s future.”

A day full of events are scheduled, including speeches from Democratic statewide candidates, a BBQ lunch with live entertainment, votes on important resolutions, conducting the official business of the Democratic Party of Georgia, and general fellowship with unified and motivated Georgia Democrats.
