You stay classy ...

As if some regular readers weren't already aware, it's kinda common knowledge that State Sen. John Douglas of Social Circle is one of the least respected state legislators among not only progressive bloggers, but also some conservative ones.

And now it appears he's fond of blackmail as he is openly stating that he would consider withholding funding for projects in Conyers for what he believes is a police department overreaching its jurisdiction. In fact, Douglas is even threatening to bring 'the risk of damage' to the city of Conyers.

Of course, if you read the article, it's pretty clear that the police department is merely acting within its jurisdiction by pursuing traffic-related incidents which originate within its city limits. And that Douglas is primarily upset with them because they stopped him for driving recklessly one night while talking on a cell phone. Since then, the senator has apparently made it his life mission to abuse the privilege of his office by harassing this small Georgia town's municipal government.

A class act I say ...

Or, as Flack noted, Douglas just wants to fight the Conyers Police Department there so we don't have to fight them here.

So much for being a "law and order" conservative.
