Quote of the Day: the Nathan Deal edition

"One of John Oxendine’s best friends illegally funnels $120,000 to his campaign, and he claims he knew nothing about it. Really? Let me ask the average Georgian: Has anyone ever given you $120,000 without your knowledge? "

-Nathan Deal gubernatorial campaign spokesman Brian Robinson as quoted in the Valdosta Daily Times article "Oxendine probe lingers on, accusations fly"

While Robinson's question is a rhetorical one, allow me to answer it anyway:

I've never had someone give me $20 without my knowing it, let alone $120,000.

John Oxendine must think the people of Georgia are stupid if he expects us to believe that he had no knowledge of six figures transferred into his gubernatorial campaign account.
