An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A federal judge will consider today whether to stop Tennessee from certifying the vote in this month’s U.S. Senate Democratic primary election.
Fourth-place finisher Larry Crim sued the Tennessee Democratic Party, its executive committee and state chairman, Chip Forrester, plus the Tennessee Division of Elections in federal court on Wednesday and asked for an emergency ruling. Federal Judge Kevin Sharp set a hearing for this morning to consider whether to stop the vote certification.
Dude! You lost! Get over it!
The state party has disavowed the winner of the Aug. 2 primary, Mark Clayton, because of his anti-gay platform. Party officials said Clayton wasn’t a Democrat because the only time he has voted in party primaries was when he ran for Senate four years ago.
Clayton got nearly 50,000 votes, or twice the number of his nearest competitor, in a field of seven little-known candidates to challenge incumbent Republican Sen. Bob Corker in November. Crim came in fourth, with just over 17,000 votes.
Well, actually, ya didn’t just lose….ya got yer hind end handed to ya! Heh. Apparently, to be considered a Democrat, you have to support every single perversion known to man? You have to support the murder of children? The voters spoke, but y’all don’t like the answer, so you ‘disavow’ your own candidate? Sorry, but that’s not very democratic of you! Talk about disenfranchising the voter! Sheesh!
“I find it a travesty that Chip Forrester certifies him to be a candidate for the U.S. Senate as a Democratic candidate, and then literally before lunch the next day goes out and berates this man,” Rowan said.
Yup! YOUR party’s chair certified him! Ya might want to think about replacing him, not the WINNER! Deal with it, and move on! Vote for the guy in the general, or not….but to behave like petty children? Oh…sorry…I forgot…that’s your M.O.! Never mind!
