Georgia Republican Just Got What He Deserves For Racist Comments Against John Lewis

A Georgia official has been slapped with a public reprimand for calling civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia a “racist pig” on Facebook.

Commissioners in a suburban Atlanta county have voted to publicly reprimand Commissioner Tommy Hunter after an Atlanta woman, Nancy Turner, filed the complaint against the Republican official, MSN reported.

The decision on Tuesday followed the recommendation of Gwinnett County’s ethics board, which voted earlier in June to sustain the ethics complaint against Hunter. He did not attend the meeting, which included a public hearing.

The public reprimand will involve posting a written rebuke on the county’s website, on the wall of the courthouse and in the local newspaper.

Hunter issued a statement that reads, in part, “We now know that mob rule controls the Gwinnett County Commission Board.” But he got what he deserved.
