Nice to know that the State of Georgia has $3,000,000 laying around.

Exclusive: State settles all remaining ethics cases

By Aaron Gould Sheinin
State government on Friday will announce it has settled two remaining lawsuits against its ethics commission as well as one that had yet to be filed, the AJC has learned.
A person with direct knowledge of the settlements told the newspaper that the state will pay more than $1.8 million to settle lawsuits filed by former commission deputy director Sherilyn Streicker and former computer specialist John Hair as well as a threatened lawsuit by former commission attorney Elisabeth Murray-Obertein.
The state in May agreed to pay former commission director Stacey Kalberman $1.3 million after a Fulton County jury agreed with her claim that she was forced from office.
More to come.

As our friend Joel points out.

$3 million in taxpayer $ to settle ethics claims would fund nearly 130 students through UGA for one year.
