The state lawmaker and MARTA critic fighting to win re-election took issue with the Democratic Party of Georgia's mailers informing voters about her recent bankruptcy. From the Daily Report's ATLAW:
State House Rep. Jill Chambers, R-Atlanta, filed a civil suit in Fulton County Superior Court Thursday morning against the Democratic Party of Georgia over two flyers that went out in recent days containing the last four digits of her Social Security number.

Chambers said she’s not concerned with the content of the flyer itself, but is concerned about the release — on more than one occasion — of information that can be used to access her bank accounts, phone records or other personal data.

“I don’t have a problem with them using tax documents against me; they’re public records,” said Chambers. “I play hardball politics myself, and I know that sometimes in the rush of it all things get by you. But they did it twice — that’s not an accident.”

The judge granted a restraining order prohibiting the Democrats from releasing the mailers for 30 days. Now if Chambers could just convince a judge to thaw her frozen campaign account, she'd have a much better chance against Democrat Elena Parent.
