Handel's loss, despite an endorsement by Sarah Palin, is attributed to several factors including her "scorched earth" tactics where she accused four of her opponents of ethical or moral failures and alienated fellow Republicans including some of her county chairmen. Ironically, it was her own ethics issues, several of which were described by the Political Vine, a Republican oriented electronic newsletter, that ultimately led to her defeat. VoterGA also documented the undue influence of the voting machine vendor lobbyist on the Secretary of State's office during her tenure as well as several instances of improperly conducted investigations in cases that involved Georgia's unverifiable voting machines. These cases eventually led to Articles of Impeachment filed in the Georgia General Assembly against Handel's Inspector General, Shawn LaGrua. Links to that research and documents were widely distributed through the internet to local Democrat and Republican voters even though most state and local news outlets suppressed them. Exposure of this material and the ability to circumvent media suppression were likely key deciding factors in the miniscule margin between victory and defeat for this gubernatorial run-off.
