GNB Update

It's Tuesday...Hope it was a productive one for you...Here's the news...

A metro Atlanta man is convicted in a visa fraud case. The Henry Daily Herald reports that a federal jury found 54-year-old Hasmukh Patel guilty on 12 counts of fraud and bribery. He was also convicted of conspiring to encourage aliens to come to the United States. Patel could face up to 49 years in prison, and a fine of nearly $2 million, when he is sentenced in June.

Wednesday is the last day to file your income tax returns. But many people across the nation don't want any part in doing that. Macon.com reports that hundreds of "tea parties" will be planned throughout Georgia tomorrow to express their displeasure over the recent bailouts, and the economic stimulus package. National radio talk show and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity will carry his TV show live from the state Capitol in Atlanta from 9 to 10 p.m. Wednesday. Two radio talk show hosts from middle Georgia will also broadcast from separate locations throughout the area.

A county commissioner from metro Atlanta is close to deciding what plans he'll make for 2010. Cobb County Commission Chairman Sam Olens will decide by the end of this week whether he'll run for statewide office. He could either run for governor, or another office statewide. Olens' decision is expected to be announced on Friday.

That's the news. Remember to bookmark georgianewsbeat.blogspot.com for the Georgia-related news you can't get anywhere else 24/7. Have a good Tuesday night.
