Georgia Democrats Have $133K to Spend on Party Nominees, Including Victor Hill

Note. The. Sarcasm.

Flush with cash heading into the final months of the 2012 election season, the Democratic Party of Georgia actually spent more money than the organization raised in the month of July.

Campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) show that, during the period of July 1st through July 31st, Georgia's Democratic Party raised $80,821.69 and spent $87,315.57.

Georgia Democrats have $133,878.01 left in the bank, which will be spent in support of Democrat candidates for public office including recently nominated Clayton County Sheriff candidate Victor Hill.

Victor Hill, who faces trial on 37 felony charges, is the Democrat nominee for Sheriff of Clayton County; and no Democratic Party member can publicly support another candidate other than the Democratic nominee in a General Election.

In the words of legendary baseball broadcaster Mel Allen, "How about that."
