Rodney Alexander - low blow.

For those of you that hadn't heard yet, Democratic Congressman Rodney Alexander switched from Democrat to Republican just 30 minutes before the filing deadline on Friday, screwing the Democratic party. Not only did he switch, but he actually filed as a Democrat first, on Wednesday, and then re-filed on Friday as a Republican, leaving the party less than 30 minutes to try to come up with a new candidate to run. That's a pretty low blow. What's even worse is that he (of course) was accepting financial contributions for his campaign the entire time, meaning that a lot of people trying to donate to a local Democratic candidate ended up donating to a local Republican candidate. That's ugly.

Anyways, read about it here:
