The Wild Hog Supper, which always was used as an early symbol of legislators eating “high on the hog” with lobbyists, was transformed this year. The Georgia Food Bank Association sponsored the event and guests (including legislators) had to fork over twenty bucks for a ticket to attend (and bring a can of food as well). That’s great, but as James has noted in past years, there is no event that veteran legislators and leaders dreaded more than “the Wild Hog.” The event had become too large and the food was anything but the “feast” it was always described to be in the media. This year hopefully everyone is a winner. Food goes to those in need, everyone pays to go, and the poor legislators aren’t made to look like they are eating “high on the wild hog” even before the session starts…Rising
