Republican leadership in the Georgia House of Representatives, including Speaker David Ralston and Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones, must denounce Chris Boedeker’s false attack ad on U.S. veteran Scott Holcomb

To be delivered to Speaker Ralston, Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones, and Candidate Chris Boedeker

Petition Statement

We are calling on House Speaker David Ralston and other members of the Georgia House GOP leadership who have contributed to Chris Boedeker’s political campaign to denounce Boedeker’s false political attack ad and to apologize to Rep. Scott Holcomb, a 12-year military veteran who served his country honorably, including three overseas deployments in support of the operations in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Georgia’s elected officials should not choose their political party over the honorable service of a U.S. veteran.

They must choose to either stand with Chris Boedeker or with Georgia’s veterans. They cannot do both.
There are currently 563 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

GOP candidate Chris Boedeker, with financial backing from House Speaker David Ralston and Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones, produced and distributed a false campaign ad attacking State Rep. Scott Holcomb’s honorable military service.

The attack ad was so filled with false accusations that Boedeker cancelled his planned purchase of television time to broadcast the ad in District 81.

But the attack ad was funded, in part, by the House Leadership’s contribution to Boedeker’s campaign.

Virtually all of Mr. Boedeker’s campaign funds have been donated by Republican elected officials. We are asking Speaker Ralston and other members of the Georgia House GOP leadership to stand on the side of Veterans and denounce this malicious political attack ad.
