Gee, David. Kind of an insensitive opening. Muslims never eat any pork products!
For the history of corruption in Georgia politics, just google the "Yazoo land fraud" which began before 1800 and basically bankrupted Georgia. This happened about the time frame in which the original Tennessee-Georgia boundary was surveyed. The federal government agreed to bail them out in exchange for the Mississippi Territory.
Little change in politics, just politicians. This nonsense is just SSDD (same stuff, different day).
Just who was this French Broad?
