Better Georgia

Manhandling a female journalist is not acceptable.

Tell Gov. Deal to condemn the manhandling of citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale.

Gov. Deal, you watched from the same row and did nothing as a female journalist was violently ejected from a public event at the request of your political appointee. As the leader of this state, you had the power to speak up and prevent this injustice, but chose to do nothing.

Speak up and say this was wrong.

    On August 23, a woman, who had been granted permission to film the public event, was forcibly removed from Burt’s Farm in Dawsonville while recording speeches by the GOP ticket.

    She’s now facing felony charges as a result of filming political speeches.

    While some people in attendance spoke up and condemned the force used against the journalist, Gov. Deal only said days later that seeing her physically dragged out made him “uncomfortable.”

    Simply put, Governor Deal failed to lead.
