Pettigrew campaign gets desperate

There is no denying that the race for the Tennessee House of Representatives in the 18th District is close, but it is also clear that Schree Pettigrew is behind and that she is losing ground. Apparently, some folks in Mrs. Pettigrew's campaign are aware of this reality because they are once again resorting to lies and distortions in order to try and garner votes.

If the Pettigrew camp is to be believed, Stacey Campfield favors an income tax and is somehow responsible for the Iraq War. The first claim is a bold-faced lie, since Mrs. Pettigrew and her supporters are well aware that Stacey opposes an income tax. In fact, while Mrs. Pettigrew has met on more than one occasion with pro income-tax forces in Tennessee, Stacey Campfield will not so much as sit in the same room with these people as a matter of principle.

Attempting to somehow pin the war in Iraq on a freshman in the State House is nothing short of a desperation tactic, and is how the casual observer can glean that Mrs. Pettigrew is running behind and that the members of her inner circle are quietly aware that she is losing, and while putting on the brave face and even telling the press that the numbers say otherwise, they know that their only hope is to resort to the tactics of a desperate campaign that is in its final days.

Last week, a third party poll was taken on this race. The numbers that poll revealed were quite telling, and have not been released to either candidate's campaign because giving the numbers away would amount to an in-kind contribution under Tennessee's campaign finance laws. I have now seen the numbers, however, and I can tell readers this much: The Republican leads, but presently falls within the margin of error.

Democrats and supporters of Mrs. Pettigrew may see that as wonderful news, but if I were them, I wouldn't see it as great news at all. Why? Mrs. Pettigrew's supporters have poured nearly $100,000 dollars into her campaign, an amount utterly unheard of in a local race...and the best they can do with all of that money, and all of those salacious TV propaganda pieces, and all of those rediculously false telephone dialers, (things that her opponent has not had the money to do up to this point) is the margin of error?

That is one for Make Me Laugh, folks.

Well Mrs. Pettigrew, I must admit that for a political novice you have mounted a very impressive campaign. Of course, if you didn't have all that big time cash from those trial lawyers you work for and their friends, I suspect it might not have been nearly so impressive. Nonetheless, you play the game very hard, and we see that you have learned how to play the game the filthy dirty way. I hope you don't continue to play the game so dirty should you choose to run for office again-after you are defeated at the polls next Tuesday.

David,
It seems to me that the closer we get to election day the more Republicans are resorting to Fear, Smear, and Whine.
Fear: The terrorists will get us, your taxes will go up and so on ...
Smear: They party with playboy bunnies, they take money from trial lawyers, they don't represent Tennessee (aka "proper") values and so on ...
Whine: They're using dirty tricks, they're not fair, and so on ...
Fear, smaer and whine: It's a continuing paradigm at all levels of the Republican political effort this year.

Steve;
None of what you just said addresses this particular race...

I think saying that Stacey Campfield supports and income tax when she knows he does not or has anything to do with starting or stopping the Iraq War when she knows he does not is pretty desperate on Schree Pettigrew's part and smacks of "fear, smear, and whine: quite well.

At this rate, we'll hear the whining at the results all the way to Cade's Cove

Schree Pettigrew has never blamed her opponent for the war in Iraq. Shame on you for falling victim to those lies of someone trying to tarnish her credibility.

I haven't fallen victim to any lies, I said people within her campaign were speading these falsehoods and notions. She is not putting a stop to it, is she?

Nope, didn't think so.

David,
I just an email and telephone call from Schree. She has not said any of what you're whining, er, complaining about and She has come out against it. You're being suckered, dude. Somebody said it and I think it was somebody in the Campfield camp saying that someone said it so as to make her look bad. It's so rediculus (sp?) on its face, everybody who knows Stacy, regardless of what they think of him or his politics knows that. So give it up on the Pettigrew bashing - Stacy's going to need more than this on the home stretch.

Steve;
It is lovely that she has "come out against "it." As I said, she isn't really doing anything to stop it, just letting it all float out there.

I am sure after she is defeated next Tuesday she'll put an immediate stop to people associated with her campaign perpetuating falsehoods while she conveniently remains in the clear...before then, I fully expect business as usual. Such is the unfortunate nature of politics.

I noticed Terry Frank is repeating these lies to, over at BillHobbs.com.

I laid out a challenge yesterday for her to explain who said this and when. I'll now do the same for you.

Everything I seen links back to Stacy's blog. Can he back it up? Talks about lies and deceit. Sheesh.

 
At Tuesday, October 31, 2006 3:38:00 PM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

Well Johnny, I know the dialer exists that accuses Stacey of being pro-income tax and hacks the war on him...I was visiting a friend of mine in Knoxville over the weekend and the dialer rang in. Its okay...Stacey has a new dialer of his own featuring Congressman Duncan.

As for Bill Hobbs...the man has been around...so has Terry Frank...so have you, and so have I...you know this game that is being played by the Pettigrew camp and you know what it means. I think we all know that it is an attempt to make up lost ground and it will be played out in the blogosphere and in the KNS in the coming days.

 
At Tuesday, October 31, 2006 4:18:00 PM, Anonymous JustJohnny said...

The dialer your friend got would be a Bredesen dialer supporting Schree.

Schree is pulling back the curtains on Campfield, and it burns, but everything she say's has been backed up by media reports, official docs, etc.

What you guys are doing is spreading a smear campaign which started on your candidates blog.

I look forward to more press regarding Campfield's relationship with Christopher Eatherly. I hope that KNS contacts Eatherly on the issue. I hear he has been more than forthcoming with others about his relationship with Stacey Campfield. I'm sure he'll do the same for you, KNS, or anyone else.

As for the income tax, why is Campfield taking cash from the Sundquist crew? You call Naifee the father of the income tax, well, Sundquist is the Grandfather.

Just because you heard a call does not mean Pettigrew had anything to do with it.

 
At Tuesday, October 31, 2006 9:06:00 PM, Anonymous TL said...

So, just curious, speaking of Stacey's support for the income tax... did he ever return the thousands of dollars he got in campaign donations from Don Sundquist's Deputy Governor and right-hand man, Justin Wilson?

Oh, and has anyone come up with any proof that the call came from Pettigrew?

 
At Tuesday, October 31, 2006 10:15:00 PM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

Johnny;
So everything Mrs. Pettigrew said has been backed up, right? How about that arrest record she claims Campfield has? I recall that Stacey offered her a thousand dollars to produce this record. I happen to know for a fact he was not joking...now perhaps Mrs. Pettigrew thought he was, but she has yet to produce such a record. She can't produce it because it does not exist, much like the rest of the hot air coming out of her campaign.

J. Jackson and TL: She's not doing anything to stop these dialers, is she...? In fact, when she debated Stacey on The Voice, she admitted that such a dialer accusing Stacey of supporting the income tax etc. existed. As far as Stacey taking money from anyone associated with Don Sundquist, you are asking Stacey to return cash to someone he has never even seen.

I'll tell you what: I am sure I can convince Stacey to return that money if Schree Pettigrew returns the tens of thousands of dollars she has gotten from trial lawyers who want a puppet in the legislature. I think that's a fair compromise, while we're talking about returning money, so will Mrs. Pettigrew agree to that?

Didn't think so.

 
At Tuesday, October 31, 2006 11:09:00 PM, Anonymous J. Jackson said...

Dave, you use such circular logic. How can Pettigrew do anything to stop something she has no control over? That's kinda like asking Stacey to, well, stop the Iraq war.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 1:01:00 AM, Blogger Steve Mule said...

David,
Get a drink, drink it and get a grip, OK? You're getting lost in an Orwellian nightmare that is largely of your own making.
OK ...
Stacy really did take all that money from all those people - it's public record and available on the internet (use The Google, it's on The Internets). it's fact.
Now, does that MEAN anything? Well, that's open to discussion.
OK ...
Stacy really was taken to the floor, handcuffed, read his rights and removed from the Duncan Family BBQ when the not yet Gov. Bredesen stopped by and Stacy became ... frisky.
No one wanted the inconvience of court action so no charges were filed. So, technically, there is no arrest record but everyone knows it happened - arrest record or not. The signifigance of the arrest record = what the meaning of the word "is" is.
Mrs. Pettigrew can not do anything more than come out against the "dialers" since she's not in control of them. That is if they're actually real. If they're real she's not in control of them and doesn't know who's behind them if anyone and they may not be real and probably aren't. You have absolutely no proof whatsoever. But somehow that's Schree's fault? Somehow she has to prove a negative to you? Never has your logic been so flawed. And at a frist principles level!

Steve;
I am very aware of what happened at the Duncan Family Barbecue...I am also aware that not only does the arrest record Pettigrew tried to foist on Stacey not exist, but that Jimmy Duncan (whose barbecue it was...remember?) hasn't just come out and publicly endorsed Stacey, he has been rather outspoken about it, and was again the other night.

That is precisely what the Pettigrew campaign doesn't want to get out.

The dialers exist...period. If what you say is true, Steve, and Mrs. Pettigrew is not in charge of them, never has been, and has now come out against them, then that shows a serious flaw in Schree Pettigrew: It shows a candidate who is not in ultimate charge of her own campaign and whose moral authority, however pure it may be, is not sufficient enough to stop the dirt eminating from her side of the aisle.

If she can't put a stop to these things because she is not pulling the strings of her own campaign, then who will be pulling her strings in the Tennessee House of Representatives?

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 7:54:00 AM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

Jackson;
You use circular logic also...like asking Stacey to return that money from folks he hasn't seen. It is as I said, he'll return that when Mrs. Pettigrew returns her trial lawyer money.

The latter will not happen, as you are well aware.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 8:28:00 AM, Blogger Steve Mule said...

David,
The dialers do not exist - they are rumor and smear. As for control - it's like Corker and those RNC ads he didn't like (that no on liked, except a few). It took a day or so for them to come down. Does that show, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, collusion on Corker's part?? Without proof, no!
You have no proof of anything but you're not letting that stop you.
Does the fact that it took a while for the RNC ads to come down that Corker is not in charge of his campaign? Of course not! But for some reason it's Schree's fault, indicative of a sloppy campaign, a harbinger of things to come?? Please, David, you're being silly.

Circular logic is calling Schree out for taking trial lawyer money while turning a blind eye to Stacey taking Sundquist money.

Dave, I'd love to hear why one is so bad and the other isn't. You suggest Schree is beholden to each and every contributor. Can the same not be said for Stacey? If Schree must answer to every trial lawyer that gave her money, then must Stacey also answer to Sundquist's top aide?

Stacey has self-funded several campaigns now to a tune in the many tens of thousands. That money is coming from somewhere other than a couple of rental houses and pool tables. Who is Stacey beholden to?

Stacey has accomplished nothing for his district. State road projects are behind, the BEP formula still haunts Knox Co., etc. So it is safe to say it's not the district he was elected to represent.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 8:33:00 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I guess my point is that they are both beholden to certain interests. One has a record of crazy media stunts and no accomplishments for the district. The other has no real record at all.

So the real question is does the district stick with someone that we know can't get anything done, or does it choose someone who we don't know what/if they can get done.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 9:07:00 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Schree admitted the income tax dialer was paid for by her on the voice radio show. The last time I drove by west town mall it was orange cones all over the place. That is in the middle of the district. The BEP change was shot down by the governor ask Jamie Haygood.

Mule, if a person is read their rights then they have been placed under arest and there has to be an arest report made even if the charges were droped. I have seen Schrees TV comercials they say "arrest record" and "arest photo" bold clims that should be backed up with facts or removed from the air as false.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 10:14:00 AM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

The issue is not that Mrs. Pettigrew is a bad person, it is that she is quite beholden to a certain group of people who not only do not have the interest of the people of the 18th District in mind, they do not have the interest of the people of East Tennessee in mind. Their only goal is to be rid of Stacey Campfield, largely because they do not like that fact that he exposes certain of their number to be rather corrupt. They brought Mrs. Pettigrew in and put her up to run...there is utterly no question as to that reality. Mrs. Pettigrew works for trial lawyers and has gotten the VAST majority of her money from these people. She is their candidate, bought, paid for, and on the hook.

As to Steve Mule's comment about the controversial RNC ad...make note, the ad DID come down, didn't it. None of the negativity, falsehood, and smear directed at Stacey Campfield is ceasing, is it? Yet we are told that Schree Pettigrew has come out against these falsehoods, smears, and other low-blow tactics.

Mrs. Pettigrew is "against" them, she says, yet they do not stop. This is for one of two reasons: She says she is against that kind of campaigning publicly in order to cover her own rear, but in reality she is allowing it to go on because she sees those kind of tactics as beneficial to her. If this is true, it isn't right, but is far from unheard of in the annals of political discourse.

The second possible reason this kind of low-brow campaigning continues to come from those who support Schree Pettigrew in spite of her saying she is against it is far more serious: If Mrs. Pettigrew says she is against these sorts of tactics and she is being genuine about that, yet her supporters continue to utilize low-brow tactics, it means that she has no control over her own campaign whatsoever and other people do.It means that others are calling the shots for her, and it means that if elected, others may continue to be calling the shots for her. As a voter, I find that notion to be truly frightening.

Contrast this to the RNC ad controversy...Corker said take the ads down, and the ads came down. Whatever problems I have with Mr. Corker, it is clear to me who is the ultimate boss in his campaign-Bob Corker

I understand that for some of you, Schree Pettigrew is a friend of yours, and you are helping and defending her. Believe me, I respect that and I wouldn't expect any different. Indeed, I am defending and helping a friend of mine. At no time in this race have I made any effort to impune Mrs. Pettigrew's personal character-I don't think for a minute that she personally is a bad person or even that she would be a terrible candidate if she were not beholden to so many special interests.

But she is, whether she wants to believe that in her mind, and if she wants us to believe that she is not, she is doing a rather poor job of passing herself off as a lone ranger here. She was moved into the 18th district and put up to run against Stacey-that's just the fact...she is beholden to the people who are funding this attempt. She would be nowhere without that trial lawyer money and influence. I know it, the readers of this blog know it, and I'll bet Schree Pettigrew knows it too.

Who's deceiving who?

Justin Wilson contributes $500
Justin Wilson contributes $1000

...and Campfield stammers and denies he knows who he is.

He knows, he just doesn't want the voters to know.

He never said he didn't know who Justin Wilson is...you said that. I know you are a good spinner and all Johnny, but you know that there is a difference between knowing who someone is and actually knowing them.

You are a good spinner, and you spin so heavy you remind me of a 78 rpm!

Wow. So he does know who he is? Why did he dance around the issue on "The Voice" during his interview with Schree? If he did know who he is, he certainly didn't want voters to know that!

So, why is Stacey knowingly accepting cash from a support of the State income tax and then railing against Schree for doing the same?

Hypocrisy.

 
At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 12:29:00 PM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

He never railed against Mrs. Pettigrew for accepting money from whoever she likes, and maintains his right to criticise how much came from whom.

Campfield has maintained that she has met with pro-income tax forces as a group, he has not. That conversely, she has received far more financial support from those who knowingly support the income tax than he has, and that true. He has said that Mrs. Pettigrew has received tens of thousands of dollars from trial lawyers-many of whom, such as Don Bosch, are quite clear about their support for an income tax in this State.

Indeed Mrs. Pettigrew has a three-to-one fundraising advantage largely due to the financial support of tyhese sorts of people...over a hundred thousand dollars worth!

And her supporters on the internet want to fuss over $2,500 from a man Campfield does not know, a piddling amount by comparison.

That is truly desperate and altogether laughable.

It is certainly good for an after-dinner joke.

At Wednesday, November 01, 2006 5:10:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

So let me get this straight. The difference is in the amount of money? Stacey is not beholden to Justin Wilson because it is only a couple thousand, but Schree is beholden to trial lawyers because it is much more?

I never called for anyone to return any money.

I just think it is stupid that if Pettigrew has not sent the latest call of which you are complaining and she does not know who did (if in fact the call was made) then how could she possibly make the stop?

Yes, lawyers have contributed to Mrs. Pettigrew. So???

Steve;
Nearly all of her money have come from trial lawyers...enough that it becomes clear who is behind her campaign...not exactly grassroots populism here. It becomes abundantly clear that her campaign is a concerted effort dominated by trial lawyers...not merely a contribution from a lawyer here and there.

My best friend is a trial lawyer, in fact he was the Best Man at my wedding. It would be reasonable to expect if I ran for office that he might throw in a contribution. When the number of contributors that are lawyers swells to...well, very close to all of them, it is pretty clear you have a bought-and-paid for candidate, not just one whose office buddies passed the hat.

I saw Bredesen was in town for her today.

 
At Friday, November 03, 2006 9:40:00 AM, Blogger Dave Oatney said...

Yes...old news indeed. Bredesen may cruise to victory, but his endorsement does not equal victory-He has also campaigned for Bob Rochelle, but Rochelle is certainly not running away with his race against Mae Beavers.

Old news?! It isn't everyday Gov. Bredesen campaigns for other candidates here in Knoxville.

Jackson;
I have known Bredesen was coming here to campaign for Pettigrew for nearly three weeks now, so has everyone else really in the know about this race. It is old news.
