On March 21st, Representative Deal quit his job as a member of the United States Congress just minutes before the House Ethics Committee was to open an official investigation into Congressman Deal's shady behavior. To avoid being punished for his egregious ethics violations, Rep. Deal elected to abandon his responsibilities and desert his constituents.


I think it’s incumbent on the candidate to be as candid as possible with voters. Deal has declined to release full tax returns that would shed more light on his finances.

According to the Associated Press:

In 2006: Deal paid 2.95 percent — or $5,575 in federal taxes — on $188,904 in adjusted gross income

In 2007: Deal paid 1 percent — or $2,068 — on $205,433 in income



The average taxpayer in Deal’s tax bracket pays about 17 percent in taxes
