Georgia Democrat congressional candidate: ‘I hate this county’

What is it with Georgia Democrats?  On heels of reports that one was arrested for allegedly murdering her campaign treasurer comes word that Steven Lamar Foster, a 61-year-old running for Congress, declared last September that he hates the very county he wants to represent.

According to the UK Daily Mail, he made the declaration as he was being arrested for drunk driving.

Steven Lamar Foster, 61, was arrested on September 23 of last year and held nothing back as cops cuffed him.

New police dash cam footage reveals how Foster insulted Whitfield County, where he’s worked for over a decade. Six months later he launched a campaign to represent the district.

‘Eleven years I served this county. I hate this county. I prayed to God that he would curse it. And guess what? He did,’ he said in the arrest footage.

“Man, I saw it hit and cursed, and I saw people laid off right and left – white people. I hate this county,” he added.

The Daily Mail said there’s about two hours of this nonsense from Foster, who decided to run for office anyway.  Foster, however, was forced to take a break from his campaign after a jury found him guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol on Monday.

“I’ll never drink in Dalton, Georgia again,” he said in the two-hour arrest clip.

Foster is currently being held without bond as he awaits sentencing, the Daily Mail added.  He could face anywhere from 10 days to a year behind bars.  Needless to say, he’s considered a long shot for the election.  He is running against Republican incumbent Tom Graves of Ranger for the 14th Congressional District seat.

According to Dan Lovingood, the Democrat Party’s 14th Congressional District chair and the first vice chair of the Whitfield County party, Foster remains in the race for the House seat.

“He would not have taken this to trial if he had thought he would be found guilty,” he said of Foster. “I have no comment to make other than that. He’s still in the race. He seems more determined than ever to continue. There’s a sentencing next Tuesday, and there may be some changes made after that point. But that’s his decision. As his manager, I will go with his decision. This is a misdemeanor, not a felony, and he felt he had a good case or he would not have taken this to trial.”
