Something Strange is Happening Here...

If you drive between Macon and Atlanta, you are going to see a lot of Austin signs. But... one new one might turn heads.

Macon Co. Assessor Jim Palmer, a retiring Democrat, has an Austin sign up at his Highway 63 property - the gun club.

The location has been traditionally reserved for Dems only since Palmer became an elected official. However, some say the addition of an Obama sign placed by local volunteers pushed Palmer over the edge.

Interestingly, Palmer also asked for a Tony Askew (R-Atlanta) for Assessor Sign. Sources say he and Democrat primary candidate Vanita Christy, who works alongside Palmer in the courthouse, are publicly supporting Askew's campaign as the "qualified" candidate.
