Ralph Reed is truly one of the slimiest people in Americans politics today. For years, he was a top advisor to that freak Pat Robertson, and was tapped into the whole rightwing Christian evangelical cadre that runs a big part of the modern Republican party.
Reed is running for lieutenant governor in Georgia, and, given that state's GOP-leaning ways, had a pretty good chance of winning.
But, alas, he has gotten himself tied up in the whole Jack Abramoff scandal, with new details emerging almost weekly about a multitude of sleazy deals he was doing with the now-indicted lobbyist.
Now, his poll numbers have plummented, and The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that about two-thirds of the state's Republican caucus is urging Reed to withdraw from the race. They fear if he stays in, he could cause a massive wipeout for their party on election day.
Jack Abramoff. The gift that keeps on giving.
