Forrester and his companions need to thoroughly read the statute governing election commissions. It was written by democrats when they were consistently in the majority and now that that has changed, so they apparently want the change the rules. If anyone is guilty of a “switch-a-roo” Forrester (et al) might try a look in the mirror.
"believed him to be a Democrat", The man pointed out that he was Democrat everywhere he went!
Indeed, Farmall. Penuel was, I believe, former chairman of the rutherford county democrat party. They have no reason to complain, Penuel's contract by statute was reviewed every two years and he served at the pleasure of the majority party. That was how democrats wrote the statute to keep all 95 election commissioners in the democrat party. Now that the majority has changed, they huff and puff. It's all self-serving bluster and in plain terms, a load of crap.
Excuse me...I'm for a Gop candidate for governor, but I'm against going against "law" that has been through the system...the settlement, agreed to by Republicans, my friends, is that Penuel won his point, legally, which changes the state laws...it's big, but it's a done deal...Penuel made a historic change in the political process of Tennessee...GOP or Demo...in the future, if a GOP person does the job, they won't be changed, etc.
