A tale of 2 scandals involving elected GOP officials in GA

There are 2 scandals that have really hit the news lately involving GOP elected officials in the state of Georgia.

The second story hit today, and involves the GA insurance commissioner Jim Beck (who has just been in office for 2 years). He has been indicted on 38 counts including wire fraud, mail fraud, and money laundering. That story is here:

I don’t know - the GOP governor barely managed to eek out a victory in 2018.

I should have said it won’t hurt the GOP with white voters. Georgia, Alabama, and other southern states are extremely politically segregated. Changing demographics is why the last election was so close.
