He’s been involved in Democratic politics and voted in Democratic primaries and runoffs, not to mention general, special, and Atlanta city elections. If there was an election, he’d show up and vote. He’s attended every Democratic convention since 1992, when he was an intern for the Clinton/Gore campaign. Those are some serious bona fides. Lindy Miller On the other hand, one of his opponents, Lindy Miller, not so much—at least not until  recently. Going back two decades through voting data shows that before 2012, while Miller was registered to…
