Report: Nunn bought land near Brunswick with lobbyists

Georgia Senate candidate Michelle Nunn (D) bought a swath of Georgia land with two registered lobbyists, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Nunn and her husband, along with her father, former Sen. Sam Nunn D-Ga., and two of her father’s former staffers who are now registered lobbyists, secured a $2 million loan and bought 85 acres of land near Brunswick with plans to develop it.

During the 2008 economic downturn they decided instead to preserve it with a “conservation easement contract” with a land trust that kept the area from being preserved — and allows them to get tax breaks for preserving the marshland.
