This is a message to the "wine and cheese" crowd of Memphis. You brought this economic misery on yourselves. You elected Wharton without any investigation on what kind of vision he had for Memphis. He gave thirty million dollars to Pinnacle Airlines and they flew away to Minneapolis. The city is suffering economically by the bad decisions of the elite few who support Wharton.
If you do not like Wharton, then I suggest the citizens who are not happy with his leadership organize an effort to vote him out of office. Memphis is not the next Detroit, Michigan. It is the next Cairo, Illinois. Memphis is almost bankrupted.
I think Bill Haslam is the laughingstock of not only Tennessee but the entire nation.
If AC Wharton was on the ballot on Thursday, he would have lost 60-40 as well. I want the Wharton backers to tell me why he deserves re-election?
Wharton made Memphis the poorest city in America.
This is just another example of political corruption in Memphis-Shelby County. Why are public officials having political fundraisers when we live in the poorest city in America?
Nobody cares about Jeff Sullivan. But the citizens should care why government is not working for the there concerns. These secret political fundraisers are disturbing at best.
What are Oldham, Weirich, and Touliatos hiding? Where is there money coming from?
Why would Republican Amy Weirich take political support from Jeff Sullivan after his behavior in Nashville?
I thought she was for law and order.
I think it is time for Brian Kelsey to resign from the Tennessee State Senate. His stunt at library was pretty low class.
It is really pathetic that Republican U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander has to resort to bashing a Democrat like Kathleen Sebelius to get reelected. Lamar says he is running against the tea party. Lamar has been pandering to right wing conservatives for years.
Maybe it is time for Lamar Alexander to retire? Lamar is the tea party. It shows that the Tennessee Republican Party out of touch with the rest of the country.
