The Athens Review has a Q&A up with Wade Gent, the trial lawyer running against conservative champion Betty Brown. He may be a decent lawyer, but he apparently doesn’t know much about the state legislature. Maybe he was too busy filing frivilous lawsuits to pay attention to the legislative session.
He tells the Athens paper that his first legislation to file would be to “require all legislatorâ€™s votes to be made public, recorded and placed on the Internet so the constituents can know how the representatives vote” and then says Rep. Brown has been secretive about her votes.
The lawyer is either ill-informed or willfully misrepresenting the truth.
Betty Brown supported legislation, that passed, to do just that. Where was Wade?
Wade Gent’s like the guy who supports a football team — after they’ve won the game, and then tries to take credit for it.
He makes similarly spurious claims in the Q&A about Betty Brown’s service, and all are equally ill-informed or misrepresentative.
