Who is this Becky Campbell? She needs to have her journalistic credentials revoked. She identified the creep as a DemocRAT.

Yet another resume enhancement for a DemocRAT candidate.

His bio has him being a reporter from 2002-2004, and a public school teacher 2007-2008. Funny how they don't mention the latter, even though it's more recent.

I vaguely remember this guy. I was an LEO in Johnson City from 1978-2008. Not a bad place to live. And we border Unicoi county where in 1936 they hung an elephant. Bet all you Nascar fans have even been to JC.

They probably didn't want to call attention to his being a teacher which no doubt ties into his soliciting sex from minors.

Johnson City, TN. As I recall, back in the 40s and 50s there was a novelty company in Johnson City.....they put out a big thick catalog that was packed with every kind of gag and trick....from whooopee cushions to cigarette loads. To young clods like us down on the farm in the boonies of Pennsyltucky, that was a hit and a time passer. I wonder if that company still exists?

With his resume, how could he possibly have failed to win a rat primary?

I have never heard of that; but you have aroused my curiosity.

Could you mean the Johnson Smith Company? They were never in Johnson City, but yes, they’re still around.

He not only lost but he lost to a Conservative DEM. More Conservative really than Corker. LOL The Democratic party nearly had a meltdown over it. LOL.
