Sally Yates: The Person Who Could Put the Nail in Nathan Deal's political Coffin

There's one person who is forgotten in all of the Deal Ethical & financial Saga:

Sally Yates, who is U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia could hold the key to determining if Nathan Deal will get the hammer brought down on him regarding the no-bid contract between his auto salvage business and the state.

Here's the low-down:

Nathan Deal, the republican candidate for governor, personally intervened with Georgia leaders to preserve an obscure state program that earns his company nearly $300,000 a year. Deal on three occasions in the past year and a half met with state Revenue Commissioner Bart Graham to question proposed changes Graham wanted to make in the way Georgia inspects rebuilt salvaged vehicles. Deal coordinated his efforts through the office of a political ally, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle who make up one half of the "Gainesville Mafia" along with Deal.

Deal and Ken Cronan own and operate Recovery Services Inc., also known as Gainesville Salvage & Disposal, which for nearly 20 years has enjoyed a lucrative agreement with the state that earned the company $1.5 million from 2004 through 2008 according to state records. The company provides a location and equipment for state inspectors to examine salvaged vehicles. Deal left congress just before the heat was about to get on him.

Keep an eye on Yates in the whole Nathan Deal SAGA. What if she come down on Deal with some sort of a indictment, how would that affect the governor's race, as well as down ballot candidates as well. Does she have the spine to do such a thing?
