Deal spokesman calls integrated prom push a 'silly publicity stunt'

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 2:29 PM

Don't expect Gov. Nathan Deal to make a statement in support of Wilcox County High School students' push for an integrated prom.

In an email to 13 WMAZ, spokesman Brian Robinson said that Deal wouldn't respond to Better Georgia's call for state politicians to "publicly support" their cause.

"This is a leftist front group for the state Democratic party and we're not going to lend a hand to their silly publicity stunt," Robinson wrote.

It should be noted that not just Democrats, but also Republicans, including state Reps. Ed Lindsey of Atlanta, Buzz Brockway of Lawrenceville, and others have expressed their support for an integrated prom.

We've reached out to Robinson for comm...oh, who are we kidding? We're probably just "living in la-la-land."
