Subject: Congratulations Speaker Williams
I know you will serve with dignity and hono....no, fooled you. Or your assistant who may be reading this, if you bother to tend to mail from citizens.
Who do you think you are? How do you justify this? Either it’s a naked grab for personal power or you were a Democrat in your heart all along and committed fraud on the voters in your district when you ran as a Republican.
Republicans received a good deal more votes for the Tennessee House than Democrats did. Only through gerrymandered lines did the Democrats hold to 49 (or was it 50 Mr. Speaker?) seats, they were given a mandate to lead. The fake “bipartisanship” you espouse received no mandate. We know you are taking cues from Boss Naifeh, he of the corrupt faction of House Democrats who have ruled over Tennessee for what is it 30-40 years? We saw him whispering in your ear on the floor of the house, IT’S ON TAPE. Who do you think you’re fooling?
Democrats have ruled Tennessee for over a century despite receiving fewer votes for the legislature for since 1994. It’s time for a change, the voters wanted a change, you spit in their face sir. When was the last time Republican held the statewide offices that will be elected by the legislature as so as you deign to allow it?
You gave your word to back Jason Mumpower for Speaker, your word is obviously mud sir.
1 more Democrat elected in 2010 ans you’re out and Boss Nass is back in your chair, 1 more Republican and likewise you’re the least powerful member of the legislature provided you survive the wrath of the voters yourself, Mr. Arrogant majority of 1.
Show a modicum of decency and resign your post. Or at least stop pretending to be a Republican.
That’s a good letter. I hope it doesn’t “bounce.”
