Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has revised its list of Tennessee supporters on its statewide steering committee to remove the names of two convicted felons.

The original list of more than 100 committee members had included former state House Majority Leader Tommy Burnett and West Tennessee Democratic Party activist Gladys Crain.

No way someone advising her in Tn didn’t know a former House Majority Leader was a felon

"These individuals were mistakenly included on the list we released and are not members of our steering committee," Clinton spokesman Isaac Baker said Monday

Which is Hillary-speak for "Stop watching what we're doing!"

"... are not members of our steering committee,"

Not "members", eh? Are they "advisers", "gurus", "counselors", "aides", "experts", "guides", "authorities,", "mentors", "specialists", "monitors", "directors", "representatives", "proxies", "partners", "associates", or of any other description? Will they be contacted by any member or volunteer of Hillary's campaign, directly or indirectly, and draw pay in any form, directly or indirectly, in the past present or future?

Maybe the felon for whom they are working should be removed.

Probably not .. at least there is NO PROOF that she actually returned it .. just because the campaign said it did.

These people are so deceitful .. I don’t trust anything they say and barely anything they do.

I got that. Remember, we’re dealing with Clinton Inc. You have to parse every effing word. They ARE NOT MEMBERS now. SO how else might they be defined???

Seems to me SNL could be helping themselves out here - like the old news skits where Chevy Chase stood behind the talker and made theatrics, someone could be an interpreter whenever Mrs. Clinton Speaks. She said... this is what she really said!

This is not an oversight. It is in-your-face politics that the Clintons know how to play.

The attempt to give felons the vote is an act that will cement the democrats in office for a long time. Watch for it to gain momentum. This is another step in that direction.

Gladys Crain, of Halls, was convicted in 1981 on federal charges connected with a scheme to rig bids on a state highway construction project.

Former state House Majority Leader Tommy Burnett, of Jamestown, was imprisoned in 1984 for failure to file an income tax return.

Burnett was re-elected from his jail cell, but was later caught up in Operation Rocky Top federal corruption probe and went back to prison for another year on federal conspiracy and illegal gambling charges.

He currently works as a state House lobbyist.

An appeal to bring Hillary back in to join her defendant husband is before the CA Supreme Court. We expect the decision by late January, and then discovery will be able to begin.

Now if they will just remove the dead people from the dumb-o-crats voters list I’ll see some progress.

Any way you can check out Harold and Sylvia Woods, who are on the list? I need background on where they lived before Tenn.

I’ll check this article/site for any reply, by anyone.

I smell a big red rat in this list.
