Censure of governor a complete waste of time

In case you had not heard, the governor of the great state of Georgia has been censured.

Were the charges brought by irate citizens upset about what irate citizens get irate about? Well, in a way, yes. The scene of this slapdown was the Republican district conventions held around the state. There was high drama going on in the districts as delegates were being chosen to head to Cleveland for the national Republican Convention. In many cases, Sen. Ted Cruz had the best ground game and it showed. But this editorial isn’t about that. It is about the governor and the rebuke handed to him in the Third District in West Georgia.
