According to the anonymous website Rocky Top Politics, there’s a letter signed by a bunch of legislators upset that one of their own (Judd Matheny) has an opponent and his opponent has hired a TN GOP staffers wife as their consultant.
The people raising the issue are taking liberties with facts they may not have. Like assuming that the staffer and his wife share in the income from her consulting business. For the record, I haven’t talked with anyone at TN GOP, the legislators that signed the letter. So this is simply my first reaction. The only person I have talked to is one of my sources that told me that the staffers wife’s client is Matheny’s opponent.
But….where were these hell raisers in 2014 when all the GOP powers that be didn’t support Senator Stacey Campfield. Additionally where were these hell raisers in January 2005 when Senator Tim Burchett cast the vote that stuck the TN Senate with a Speaker and Lt. Governor that was a very old and elected member of the Democrat party instead of Republican Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey. The Republican Party had a slim majority beginning in 2005 but had a Democrat Speaker/Lt. Governor because of turncoat Burchett.
Too bad Rocky Top doesn’t have the stones to reveal their identity. Of course it makes it harder to defend oneself from libel and slander suit, like my 2013 Kuhlman-v-Hornback suit, which I reveived Summary Judgement on 9/11/2015. But it is my thoughts (which could change with more information) I ain’t skeered to put my name to it.
