It’s no wonder Roy has the support of the legal community, while Deal collects mainly from PACs. Lawyers get a bad enough rap in society without Nathan Deal piling on their (and his) profession 24/7 in his campaign ads.

To hear Nathan Deal tell it, a) all lawyers are evil and b) Roy’s success in the profession is somehow a bad thing. Instead, Deal wants us to believe a Congressman who resigned under a cloud of suspicion, and is on the verge of bankruptcy, in spite of no bid contracts and loans from his buddies, is the best choice to be Georgia’s next Governor. Pffft.

    I wonder how much he’s spent on CPAs. Clearly, not enough.

    Attorneys should love Deal. Based on the amount of campaign money he has spent on legal fees, the prospect of a Deal in the Dome could be a self-contained economic stimulus package for lawyers in Georgia. Maybe that’s his jobs plan. Hum. Anyway, here are the numbers from Deal’s latest disclosure- over 20K in attorney fees:
