Lying His Ossoff

Posted in Library of Congress, Politics, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on May 26, 2017


Another big money mailer from Jon Ossoff arrived today. The man is drowning in cash, most of which is from out of state . He is using this fithly loot to finance a negative campaign against his opponent, the wretched Karen Handel. This is turning into the most repulsive election since Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton. If anyone can make the charisma challenged Karen Handel look good, it is Jon Ossoff. The spell check suggestion for Ossoff is Kissoff.

The mailer is a piece of big money beauty. It shows a “luxury SUV” against a stretch of asphalt, with some trees in the background. The car is a cut out. When you fold it back, you see Mrs. Handel leaning out the driver’s window, giving a thumbs up. This ad was beautifully printed, and then the car shape was cut out. Somebody spent some major bucks on printing, and mailing, this piece of work.

What is the message that moneybags Ossoff is spreading with this high end product? That Karen Handel is a spendthrift politician. Can we say irony? As JO (the full name is Thomas Jonathan Ossoff, but JO works better) says in this constantly run youtube ad, “both parties in congress waste a lot of money.” If there is anything that JO knows about, it is spending other people’s money.

JO makes questionable claims about his opponent. The state paid for a luxury SUV. Mrs. Handel increased the Secretary of State budget by 42%. And, most shocking of all, Mrs. Handel wanted to spend $15,000 on new chairs for state employees.

Channell 11 has a video about these claims. When Mrs. Handel was Secretary of State, she received a automobile allowance. The other option was to use a state owned vehicle. The allowance was part of the compensation for the job. The allowance has since been discontinued.

The budget of the Secretary of State office did go up while Mrs. Handel was in charge, from $4.7 m in 2006, when Mrs. Handel was elected to the post. The 2009 budget was $6.9m. Mrs. Handel resigned in 2009, to run for Governor in 2010. (Mrs. Handel has a habit of resigning from one office, to seek another.) The Secretary of State budget for 2017 is $29.6m.

Then there is the chair business. “Handel even suggested spending $15,000 on chairs for the Governor’s Office while the state was in “the worst state budget crisis since the Great Depression.” This claim is short on specifics. Here is an email from June 17, 2003, when Mrs. Handel was Deputy Chief of Staff for the Governor.

The budget had a $600,000 surplus. (“the worst state budget crisis since the Great Depression.”) “With this surplus, I suggest that we consider purchasing some new chairs for our folks – the ones we have are universally horrible, and we’re getting a lot of feedback from people about sore backs, etc. I’d say we’d be looking at about $15,000 – $18,000 to get just about everybody new chairs – maybe less since I might be able to strike a volume deal.”

There is no indication about how many chairs are involved, or how the issue was resolved. In the fourteen years since that e-mail, these chairs may have been replaced more than once. If just one of those employees needs surgery for a sore back, the state is going to spend a lot more than $15,000.

While researching this feature, PG found this article from 2010. While Secretary of State, Mrs. Handel “created another controversial voting measure that checks the citizenship of people when they register to vote. The Justice Department criticized that program as unfairly targeting minorities. It is now in the courts.” The State probably spent more than $15,000 defending those measures in court. However, that is not a sexy campaign issue. JO prefers to talk about office chairs.

Karen Handel, aka the Republican Hillary, is a horrible, horrible person. She needs to quit running for public office, and earn an honest living somewhere else. Unfortunately, Jon Ossoff does not appear to be any better.
