Bankruptcy Burger

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on May 12, 2011








Former Georgia House Representative Jill Chambers is having a tough time adjusting to life on the outside. She lost to a democrat last fall , which was quite an accomplishment in 2010. Along the way, some creditors of her ex husband saw her campaign funds, and decided they wanted some. A Judge seems to agree with the creditors.

PG has met Ms. Chambers, (He lives in her district.) and found her to be a pleasant person. There are those who disagree. In the attached video (not the one about in and out burger), Ms. Chambers says that politics is a mean, nasty blood sport. The campaign with Mrs. Brisendine was full of mailings and robocalls, and left many area residents eager to take a bath. Meanwhile, the creditors for a certain failed business are taking a bath. They want to dry off. The towel is money that people thought was being donated to a campaign .

The brief filed by the creditor’s attorneys is an interesting document. Ms. Chambers did not incorporate her re election campaign, which has implications about where the money will go. It also appears to be technically legal for a candidate to create a “non profit” corporation, and use this device to funnel campaign funds into a private bank account. The next time a politician ( or Political Action Committee) asks you for money, remember this.

There was a touch of wit in the layers of legalese.
“How Georgia law would treat the funds at issue in a garnishment is not the issue here. We’re not in Georgia any more. We’re in Bankruptcy Court.”
