A massive “Boot” sign campaign was waged against these politicians by Southern Heritage Activist throughout the State. These signs along with newspaper and radio ads were purchase by the SHPAC through donations make by our membership and good folks across the State of Georgia. 

The SHPAC is also pleased that the Anti-Southern Speaker of the House Terry Coleman, “Ace of Spades” is out of a job and the legislative black caucus, Joker “Deck of Shame” is now in the minority party and will losing much of their “hateful” influence under Georgia’s Gold Dome.

The SHPAC will be aggressively lobbying for a fair vote that was promised to Georgia by the current administration on the 1956 Veteran Memorial Flag and monitoring for anti-Southern legislation like House Bill 899.

Our message to the Republican party, which now has the majority in both houses, is “There are no excuses now”. The fair vote promised to Georgia, must be honored.
