Kara - I sincerely apologize if you think I was being sarcastic. I most definitely did not intend for it to come out that way and as I retread my posts I still don't quite understand what you think I was being sarcastic about. I absolutely feel sorry for his supporters and most especially his children. I simply don't believe that he has responded in the way I hoped he would have. People love stories of redemption - especially with their politicians - and I think that if he had responded differently to to these facts coming out he could've come out of this a stronger, more admirable person. I'm not being sarcastic when I say that. Once upon a time I voted for Chip Rogers..... But by failing to take esponsibility for all that currently being revealed he simply is no longer the role model he used to be for my sons. You and your group are entitled to your view, I didn't name call and I don't think think I was being rude or disrespectful. I was merely stating that I believe this situation is going to get worse before it gets better and that many, many voters will not be voting for him not because of his mistakes from long ago but because of his RESPONSES to those mistakes NOW. So again I apologize, I certainly don't think I said anything that was sarcastic rude or disrespectful but I do appreciate that you are one of the more positive voices on these blogs and if you perceived my comments that way... I believe that I need to apologize for them.

And for the record, he may have been responsive to you and you group but I have sent him many emails over the years, dating back to the start of the math controversy years ago and I have placed many phone calls to his office and I have NEVER, not a single time, received a response or phone call from him or any member of his staff. I have MANY friends that have had the same experience. I believe he is very selective about who he communicates with. I understand he is a very busy man, but he seems to be very selective in who he chooses to communicate with.

He claims his job had NOTHING to do with gambling. That is a load of garbage Guy! If he wants to stand on his record, then so be it, but DO NOT give him a pass for his blatant lies.

You are exactly right Brian. Chip has demonstrated over and over that his only loyalty is to the almighty dollar. He does not care about the citizens of Cherokee County!

Kat!!! I finally came across your existence. lol! Let me explain, there were, and may still be, a group of ppl from CCA who believe that I am you. One Mikael Kient even asked me right out if I were you. I had no idea of what anyone was talking about and they wouldn't elaborate as they thought I was denying this identity! wow. i guess those few can stop being rude rumor spreaders now. But I doubt it.
