Special Interests vs. The People - case #Nov-2006, court of public opinion - Part 4.
by Mike Crane

"The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite."

- Thomas Jefferson

To understand the extent of Special Interest influence on the Georgia Flag FAIR Vote Act and other major issues that affect you and your family (See: Special Interests vs. The People - case #Nov-2006, court of public opinion - Part 1) requires a bit of background (See: Special Interests vs. The People - case #Nov-2006, court of public opinion - Part 2 and Special Interests vs. The People - case #Nov-2006, court of public opinion - Part 3).

As reported in Part 3 - in the 2002 elections the corrupt and unholy influence of special interests on the State Flag issue was a major factor. Then Governor Roy Barnes had built a campaign fund of around $20,000,000.00 - largely from the contributions of the special interests.

All of the pundits, polls and talking heads did not give the Republican candidate Sonny Perdue a chance. But Sonny Perdue was making campaign commitments to Let The People Vote. He promised to return the State government back to the People. After all there is just something American about representing the People rather than special interests.

As we all know, Sonny Perdue defeated Roy Barnes in the election upset of the year. Even the Atlanta Journal was claiming a Roy Barnes landslide the day before the People spoke.

The special interests were stunned!

But as we reported in Part 3, there was a sudden interest in the 2002 Perdue Campaign after the election. From the October 31, 2002 through December 31, 2002 campaign report $1,604,175.82  was received. Of that amount $1,418,510.00 was received "after" the election and $992,175.00 was in checks of $4,000 or more. Information is from the public record campaign reports (http://www.sos.state.ga.us/cgi-bin/disclosureindex.asp).

From January 1, 2003 until the Legislature opened (note campaign contributions can not be accepted during the Legislative Session) the trend continued. Prior to the convening of the 2003 Legislative Session, an additional $436,877.78 was received, of which $228,500.0 was in checks of $4,000 or more.

Here is a list of checks over $4,000.00, received from January 1, 2003 until the Legislative Session opened:

Now based upon our brief look at the public records that amounts to $1,220,675.00 in checks of $4,000,000 or more received after the election and prior to the beginning of the Legislative Session.

Now we do not claim or even suggest that there is anything illegal about any of these contributions. But we do believe that it is important for the citizens of Georgia to understand to what extent and in what amount these "large" contributors gave money to our State Governor's "past" and future campaigns.

In Part 5 we will take the 10 or so largest contributors "after" the election and compare their contributions with their contributions "prior" to the election. Some Georgians may consider some of these contributors to be special interests and information about how well their legislative agenda has fared can be of interest.

In Special Interests vs. The People, case#Nov-2006 you are the judge!

It will be up to you - the citizens - will we return to government of the people, by the people and for the people? - OR - Will we continue government influenced by special interests, paid for by the people and for the special interests?
