Page 4 of 4

Despite Corbin's exoneration of Woods and the lack of substance in other claims against the Republican candidate for attorney general, supporters predict his political enemies will make at least one more attempt to smear his name before next Tuesday. "We don't know what it will be, but we're all certain Georgia will make one more big effort to discredit Grant," Joe Woods says.

Chris: we may need an extra inch or two on last page of this story for an addition. If so, it will come Monday.

Each time Woods begins to build a substantial lead in the polls, another face from his past surfaces to hurl crippling allegations.

"Grant never had any involvement with Mario Renda," Hart says.

Staton remains one of the most unpopular figures in a race this year.

Wolfson alleges that Woods threatened to tip off the attorney general unless Wolfson paid off the debt to Woods' father.

Supporters predict Woods' political enemies will make at least one more attempt to smear his name before next Tuesday.
