Ex-aide calls cops on GOP candidate in Georgia special election

Tea party activist Amy Kremer’s bid for a suburban Atlanta congressional seat is in turmoil after her campaign manager and the rest of the staff resigned Friday because he said she can’t afford to pay her bills. Another ex-staffer who was staying at her home said he called the police to help him get his valuables out after she changed the locks.

Jack Melton said she has only raised about $2,500 and couldn’t pay him and at least a half-dozen other staffers who fanned out to homes across the district, which stretches from east Cobb to north DeKalb, pushing her campaign message.

“It’s very disappointing. It broke my heart,” said Melton. “We were doing great work. But you can only treat people like that for so long.”

1. Rats, I was hoping this was the GOP candidate

that is leading among republicans. He's the one that ran the ad disparaging Ossoff as Han Solo.

2. I'm sorry that the news was disappointing.

There is still time for any dirt about the leading GOP candidate to emerge.
