What took so Long?

Aaron Gould Sheinin of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

The Georgia Democratic Party has launched a new Web site that it says details “cases of corruption, graft and backroom dealings from influential Georgia Republicans.”

The site,, targets U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), state Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, former state Sen. Eric Johnson (R-Savannah) and U.S. Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss (both R-Ga.) Deal, Oxendine and Johnson are running for the GOP’s 2010 nomination for governor. Isakson is up for re-election next year.

“We felt like there was so much corruption out there, the people of Georgia might need a guide to keep things straight,” Democratic Party director Matt Weyandt said in a statement. “It’s important Georgia voters know who their Republican politicians are taking their marching orders from.”

Efforts to reach state Republican officials for a response were not immediately successful.

The site details allegations or news stories about the five Republicans. The information is culled from articles in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other publications, as well as public records.
