After the back-slapping and routine chores of reconvening, state Sen. Don Balfour, R-Snellville, took the well to address his December acquittal on 18 felony counts associated with the misuse of his Capitol expense account. Here’s what he said:

Balfour’s appearance in the well was preceded by state Sen. Charlie Bethel, R-Dalton, the governor’s floor leader, who noted that Balfour’s son had just left for another tour in Afghanistan, and wished the young man well. That apparently was a signal that the episode is over — and that a motion of censure, rumored to be afoot, would be going nowhere.
