Skip to comments.[Tennessee Highway Patrol] Troopers with 'politics' win out on promotions

Giving money to Tennessee Governor Bredesen is one very sure way for a THP Trooper to get promoted.
Just kind of hints in an oblique manner than he might be a Democrat.
Apparently smooching butt works. Especially if accompanied by cash.
Nowhere in the story does the author of this account come out and say Gov. Phil Bredesen is a Dem'crat.
Which is very instructive in and of itself.
And the GOP can't come up with a legitimate candidate to oppose him...
The GOP is still trying to get over their last Republican Governor, who unlike the rest of his party, was willing to institute a State Income Tax.
