|More work to be done in DeKalb by the FBI.|
We're talking about data on every voter in the entire state that not only included information about where you live or what particular party's ballot you requested in the last vote, but it also included your name, demographics, voting attendance record, and your social security number and driver's license number! But, this firm not only received the file, but they actually cannot say for sure what happened to it.

Shockingly, the same small firm also assisted Commissioner Elaine Boyer wit a "clean up your image" type of campaign that was cited by the FBI as improper because she used taxpayer money to fund it.
The Pundit blogger admitted to no longer having the disk, saying it must be in a landfill by now. But, later, the Secretary of State's office released a statement that all the disks had been returned and the public's trust could be restored. So, why did the Peach Pundit then suddenly disband and the bloggers and staff all of a sudden head off into separate camps only promising vague vows of "I'll be back!"
We wonder if this was the first such breech of voter privacy or were the camps of Boyer and Frank Auman, two Smoke Rise residents, aided by an unfair advantage (data files from Apache Political )? And, is it possible that this same firm ALSO worked with Lavista Hills on their image campagin, after the leaders botched the Lakeside City initiative so badly. After all, the owner admitted to living in the Lavista Hills area.
Who knows what else was disclosed and whether access to this information was available at the time that Sen. Fran Millar and Commissioner Boyer drew up the maps that split Tucker down the middle and create such a huge controversy, but it now makes a little more sense how they determined one half of a neighborhood might be "in" while the other half would be "out," doesn't it?
Mike Hassinger, an editor of Peach Pundit, and owner of Apache Political, was interviewed on Talk Radio WGST 640 the voter information breech here.
His article on Peach Pundit about the failure of Lavista Hills and his connection to Tucker 2015 is here.
In this article, he states, "*Disclosure: Tucker 2015, used my company, Apache Political, in their campaign for cityhood."
And, his final goodbye to his readers is here.
