Ophelia Loves Justin Timberlake, But Sexy Won't Be Coming Back to Tennesee

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Don't say Ophelia Ford isn't working hard.

Sure the state senator has missed 13 out of 19 days of work (sweet gig if you can get it, no?), due to ambiguous "medical issues," but don't try to tell us the woman doesn't have her priorities straight.

Ford introduced a resolution to honor Justin Timberlake "for his highly successful music career and for his meritorious service to the State of Tennessee." But some of her coworkers disagree. Specifically, Raymond Finney, a Republican from Maryville, who is somehow offended by song titles such as "Rock Your Body" and "SexyBack."

We completely understand Finney's point. The last thing we'd want to do is bring "sexy" back to the senate. Everyone knows that's a job for interns and pages. Check out more on Finney vs Ford here.
