Democrat wants state to probe whether Cagle’s Delta threat violated law

A Democratic candidate for governor asked the state’s top law enforcement official Wednesday to investigate whether Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle violated state criminal and ethics laws for his threat to “kill” a lucrative tax break for Delta Air Lines unless it restored business ties with a national gun group. 

Stacey Evans, a former state lawmaker, urged Attorney General Chris Carr to determine whether Cagle broke bribery and extortion laws for his stance, which came days after Delta ended a discount program for members of the National Rifle Association.
