    ATL council member fined for campaigning with city funds
    October 22, 2010 --

    Longtime Atlanta City Council member Cleta Winslow will pay a $1,500 fine and $5,420 restitution for using city funds to print campaign literature and pay campaign workers to hand it out, under terms of a consent order OK’d Thursday.

    Flawed bid process hiked income for Deal's business by $415K

    A flawed bidding process indirectly allowed Nathan Deal’s Gainesville auto salvage business to nearly double its annual income from state inspections. Procurement records contain nothing to suggest that Deal, then Georgia’s 9th District congressman, or any of his staff members influenced the state’s decision to overturn the bidding. Losing the state contract — and the flat fee paid by vehicle owners — allowed Gainesville Salvage Disposal to earn an extra $415,000.

    October 19, 2010 --

The agreement settles a 3-year-old lawsuit brought by the Justice Department after my pals Andy Miller (left) and Alan Judd at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution rolled out a shocking series of stories about the state’s failures in mental health care.
