Taylor: Work to Welfare?

When Randall Savage put the Cox ad to the "Truth Test" on Monday, one fact was not mentioned on television, but is included in the full version of the story on the station's website. Savage says that fifty workers were replaced with prison labor, and of those fifty, thirty-five were previously on welfare and following being fired, ten returned to welfare. So, let me get this right, the state (via the prison system) provided free labor, but you and I (the taxpayers) picked up the tab for the ten fired employees who returned to the welfare rolls. It must've been a good deal for somebody, but not for Georgia taxpayers.

Taylor has begun running yet another ad about Cox's effort to educate Georgians about the dangers of investment fraud. And last week, Dent, Taylor's spokesman, jumped up and down about the State Board of Elections voting to spend some money to educate voters. It appears that Taylor does not want Cathy Cox to do her job herself. Do you think that maybe he could work out some of that free prison labor for her?

I have to say that of all your posts against MT this one is the most confusing and specious of them all.

Sorry you're confused. I find it confusing that Taylor attacks Cox for educating Georgians about the dangers of investment fraud. It just looks petty to me. By the way, I don't consider you a troll.

I attended one of the seminars on investments and found it very informative. Also have listened to call-in programs on Ga Public Radio. It is my understanding that the SOS office received funds that were to be used for this purpose. Hence I don't see where anybody has any legitimate gripe about it.

I'm glad someone is zeroing in on Mark Taylor's endorsement/facilitation of prison/slave labor. He looks to be a true Maddoxian Democrat.

Here's a link.....

I wonder if CC has a position on the issue ?
