Christian Group Calls for Rogers to Resign
The Georgia Christian Coalition is asking for Chip Rogers to step down as Senate Majority Leader.
Jerry Luquire, president of the Georgia Christian Coalition, has publicly asked Sen. Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, to step down from his seat as Senate Majority Leader, according to WSBTV.
Luquire calls for Rogers' resignation as the result of his connections to a business that handicapped sports events for gamblers, WSBTV reported.
Rogers appeared on a show that predicted the winner of sports events, but claimed he read from a script and never actually predicted who would win, WSBTV reported.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Luquire claims Rogers is too close to the gaming industry to hold a leadership role.
