Allegations facing state senator also concern governor

Special to SEGAZINE

Friday’s unsealing of an 18-count indictment against a state senator may have also struck Gov. Nathan Deal as bad news and not just because the two Republicans have been allied on some issues.

A Fulton County grand jury charged Sen. Don Balfour, R-Snellville, with filing false claims on his legislative expense account. He acknowledged mistakenly claiming reimbursement for doing official business in Georgia on days when various lobbyists also claimed to have bought him meals during out-of-state conventions.

If convicted, Balfour could spend time in prison for violating the state’s ethics laws.So, what’s it to Deal?

The governor is facing accusations that he also violated Georgia’s ethics laws.
