Bless your heart. Everyone else, or at least people with an agenda or an ax to grind seem to be happy this has happened to Mickey. Whatever happened to civility even if they do not appreciate the sixteen years of his life he gave to Douglasville with almost no pay at all and now this. Thank God there are still a few people who realize "everything Ain't always what it seem" and believe a person is innocent until proven guilty. I pray there will be a day when we find out who was really behind this. You can bet your bottom dollar it is dirty rotten politics. It will get to the point no good man will participate.

I also would like to know why the city "kept writing the checks if they knew it was incorrect". What about the other 25 people involved in the same payment request and received same payments. Why were they not indicted as well??? Dirty rotten politics and someone with an ax to grind? Umm something "Jest" is not right about this.

I refuse to be involved in this kind of negativity. It is one thing to have the right to voice your opinion as I am a firm believer in freedom of speech, yet to see such vittral and totally publicy stoning someone without having all the facts and finding a person quilty before he has been proven guilty. Obviously, your minds are so closed and you want a public lynching and nothing a person who has known him forty years and knows he has worked hard his entire life and has always obeyed the law, been a good father and grandfather is going to make any difference, so I leave it with you.

FACT: Mickey defamed Mike Miller in the House campaign, purposely slandered him and spread falsehoods that are too disgusting to repeat. During the GOP debate, each candidate was asked if they would support whomever won the nomination in the November election. Bob and Mike were both very humble and said of course they would support their party. Mickey was arrogant and said he wouldn't have to worry about it because he was going to win. There was a disgusted gasp in the audience and as you now know, he didn't have anything to worry about. The voters spoke at the ballot box. Keep the corrupt out of office.

Maybe like you, he stole from the taxpayers and abused their trust? Have you paid your federal restitution back yet???
