Pennington Calls Parking Facility Money a Dirty Deal for the Dirty Birds
Compares the $17 Million to Obama Family Vacation
ATLANTA – Conservative Republican candidate for Governor David Pennington issued the following in response to Gov. Nathan Deal’s comment last evening that $17 million of taxpayer money to be spent on a new parking facility at the Falcons stadium is “justified”:
“This isn’t about the Dirty Birds; this is about a dirty deal for the taxpayers.
Nathan says the ‘$17 million is justified.’ Tell that to the state employees who are spending more of their hard-earned money on health care because of his failures. Tell that to the teachers forced to buy materials for their classrooms because the money isn’t there for them. And, tell that to a group of conservatives at a debate with me. I’ll save Nathan some time; most will strongly disagree.
$17 million of taxpayer money… And, I thought the Obamas’ $4 million Hawaii vacation was bad.”
