There is a really damning article in the Atlanta Journal about just how bought off the Republicans in Georgia are.
The state was set to allow craft beer brewers to sell their beer at their brewery to people who take tours. Everyone agreed on regulations, but then the Department of Revenue went back and rewrote the regulations to do the bidding of the Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association.
In fact, making it more damning, the Department of Revenue stopped talking to the local businesses directly affected by the legislation, but kept talking to the heavily funded lobbyists who wanted to kill the legislation that allowed the brewers to sell their beer.
Here is my radio monologue on the subject.
