  1. As corrupt as any politician that Augusta has ever had..he should be investigated by the GBI for all this crap. Be smart Augusta. This is exactly what you’ll get with Kendrick too. He’s already shown you his hand!

  2. If it was reported that King Hardie was selling drugs stolen from the RCSO evidence locker or was running a telephone lottery scam, I would not be surprised or doubtful. It is more apparent why he did not want a county logo on his Tahoe. If the GBI does not get him, God will.
