Reporters and other people in attendance at the meeting heard Winters say “you deserve that” after she poured the soda on the All On Georgia reporter’s head, according the police report and the Summerville News.
Winters was charged with simple battery and disorderly conduct. Jason Winters serves as the sole commissioner for Chattooga County, which is located in northwest Georgia. He was elected in 2008. He seems to think his wife was justified in the soda attack.
