Special Parking for Democrats Only
I see that Representative Craig Fitzhugh lets us all know pretty clearly that the press is supposed to have a double standard. He thinks Republicans ought to get the 3rd Degree when minor and relatively insignificant things happen, while Democrats should be let off the hook
What is interesting is Fitzhugh's response to Humphrey that "I've got more important things to do than fool around with where I parked for an hour on a Friday night in Knoxville, we have a lot bigger problems in our state." Craig Fitzhugh does have a point, of course, but so does Campfield. In Campfield's case, he had special permission to park where he was temporarily so that he could cast his vote on the House floor. It can certainly be argued about whether this was the right thing to do or not, but note that in Campfield's circumstance his incident is splashed on the front page of the News Slantinel and seen in every major paper in the State, while Democrat Craig Fitzhugh parks illegally at the University of Tennessee for over an hour and then we hear about how we have bigger things to worry about in this State than where Craig Fitzhugh was parked?
