Conservatives looking for the newest fad in voter suppression need to flip off the Drudge Sirens and stealthily motor on down to Tennessee. Last year, 58-year old Aubry Wilhoite voted early in the primary for Bedford County Commissioner. Since no one was on his ballot for this office, he wrote in his own name because democracy sometimes seems quaint. But this is America and Wilhoite is now on the hook to the State of Tennessee for $1,000. So put that in your pipe and teach it to your AP American Exceptionalism class.
Aren't ethics and Tennessee a contradiction of terms?
"Tennessee Ethics Commission."
Ladies and gentlemen, your Oxymoron Of The Day.
So... if I write-in someone who I dislike it can cost them $1000? sweet!
"Ethics. How do they work???"Koch dollars go in, voter suppression comes out. Who can explain it?
Rush "Oxycontin" Limpdick libel!
Seems Wilhoite is getting the Tennessee Waltz, and ho boy is Matilda pissed.
That's it. I'm never gonna vote again!....
While there's no explaining it, here's a picture to help visualize it at least:
I thought the richer you are, the more ethical you are. I mean that's why welfare cheats are the wrost, but bank bailouts is fine. Kochs are near saint level by now.
That Tennessee Ethics outfit has scopes beyond human ken, all the way to monkey business, I darrow say.
"He's dead, Jim . . . ."
Maybe his County Commissioner can help him out with the Board?
Ethics in Tennessee died with Johnny Cash.
Ethics are for the commoners.
