Embarrassing national headlines about stem cell research. A bald-faced sweetheart deal for the state's largest utility company. The usual assortment of divisive bills.

The mantra going into the 2009 Georgia General Assembly was "do no harm," but the state's most powerful lawmakers proved they can't do anything but.

And because their foibles and foul-ups deserve to be preserved in perpetuity, and no stupid deed should go unnoticed, we hereby proudly present the 20th annual Golden Sleaze Awards.

If the list seems short on (um, devoid of) Democrats this year, consider it a reflection of the minority party's lack of clout – and corresponding ineffectiveness at inflicting damage.
