It seems to be happening again. It might dangerous to declare last rites over an NFL team only seven games into a season, but there’s nothing about the Falcons that suggests they’re getting better, while there’s mounting evidence that the bottom is falling out.

James Burnham of St. Marys said in a complaint filed this month that an email he received from the group in May — slamming Deal — amounted to political conduct that doesn’t comport with its tax status.
He said Better Georgia, designated as a nonprofit social welfare organization, should instead be an independent expenditure committee which would be subject to state and federal disclosure requirements.
Update: While the complaint lists Burnham as a physician, a Google search turns up no such figure — but does point to a prominent chiropractic practice.
Better Georgia spokesman Brandon Hanick said Burnham was a “Republican party loyalist,” noting his role as a host of local GOP events. He called the complaint was an election-year tactic “as evidenced by the fact that the press was tipped off about the complaint” before his organization received it.
