Pot, Meet Kettle
Today in Tennessee politics, the pot calls the kettle black
Tennessee House Republicans, on the cusp of expanding their majority in the House to allow for the electing of officers of their choosing, do seem to have been trying to encourage lobbyists to give to Republicans. This was far less obvious and politically forceful, of course, that the Democrats used to tell lobbyists and their firms that it was in their interest to give to the majority party to remain in the good graces of their Leadership. Mike Turner, who is one of the most politically astute figures in the General Assembly, says Democrats contact lobbyists to "tell them to be fair."
