Smile Ty Cobb, You're On Candid Camera
I'm sure the Ty Cobb campaign
in Tennessee House District 62 would love to explain why their man couldn't get the evening off on Monday to attend a public "meet the candidates' forum, but he could be seen at the Bedford County Courthouse in campaign attire in the middle of the workday-when UPS runs-on Wednesday
It does seem rather puzzling, however, that Cobb, presumably a union man and "good Democrat" couldn't get time off to participate in a public meeting where he would be engaging with potential constituents in a race that should be his to win because of name recognition alone.
Ty Cobb didn't show up to the scheduled forum and didn't send someone to stand in for him, but that's life, we're told, because had to work. We should have no problem with an honest day's work, but apparently Ty Cobb isn't too busy to appear at the Bedford County Courthouse in the middle of the work day Wednesday.
