He Did Not Have Holiday Relations With That Christmas Card
Tennessee House Democratic Leader Gary Odom's Chief of Staff says he didn't send the obscene Christmas card featuring him flipping the bird:
That is good to know, but just who did, and where would they find a picture of Skip Cauthorn clearly flipping someone the bird in order to put it on a Christmas card to send to legislators-especially Republican ones? While it is certainly not inconcievable that someone would sabotage Cauthorn, and by extention Cauthorn's boss Gary Odom (indeed such trickery is all too common in the political world on both sides of the aisle), it does seem more than a bit odd that the outright denial didn't come as soon as Friday night or Saturday morning, as soon as knowledge of the card's existence became public. I didn't realize that many legislators had received the card until I got private messages from some of them with notes like "did you see that crap Odom's guy sent out.." and "this is really low, the Dems must know the ship is sinking." One House member even called the card "sexist."
