    AJC Political Editor Jim Galloway on Monday:

    The chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party this afternoon said he was prepared to go to court to have state Rep. Rick Crawford, D-Cedartown, removed from the November ballot – announcing a zero-tolerance policy for party-switchers.

    “If you’re a Democrat, you’re a Democrat. But if you’re not going to be one, we’re coming after you. We’re going to do whatever we have to, to get you out of the office. That’s just good politics,” party chairman Michael Berlon told reporters.

    Even if this effort doesn't succeed, Crawford should return any and all campaign contributions.  As it is...he's probably gonna lose anyway because his district was redrawn to favor a Republican candidate.  We have several politicians in Georgia who used to be DINOs (Govs. Sonny Perdue and Nathan Deal).  So it's not unheard of.
