What a piece of work. h/t Gawker.

Gov. Nathan Deal won't take sides in the controversy over some Wilcox County teens' efforts to integrate their prom.

By email, his spokesman, Brian Robinson, said Deal would have no response to a liberal group's call for state officials, including the governor to speak out.

He wrote, "This is a leftist front group for the state Democratic party and we're not going to lend a hand to their silly publicity stunt."

Better Georgia asked Deal and others "to publicly support the students of Wilcox County who are fighting to end a 'separate-but-equal' high school prom."
