Show your love for Project Q Atlanta

Like a good ACORN campaign, we're all for stuffing some ballot boxes. You know, that's the group the GOP charged with voter fraud during the presidential campaign last year.

Ga. chief justice ‘stumped’ on gay marriage

imageWhen it comes to strong marriages, Georgia Supreme Court Justice Leah Ward Sears stands firmly in support of them.
