    Re: A Chance to Rattle Ramsey's Cage

    In this Times News article, Ramsey is whining about the ban on fundraisers.
    Think he would mention Vest's Fake Yuchi tribe doing fund raisers for him a few years ago?

    i remember reading that article from a link in their email - where a sitting legislator can't fundraise while the general assembly's still in session.

    Awwwww! Poor man, how's a Senator to raise money to campaign on if he's supposed to be busy WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE he was elected to SERVE?!!!

    geez!! If he wants to raise money while working, he IS in the right business (crooked politicians and all that), maybe he just hasn't quite learned to be as sneaky as those on the federal level? And having said that, there ARE some legislators here in TN that HAVE been caught with their hand in the 'cookie jar' .... but they were caught and sentenced: something about a "Tennessee Waltz" was it?

    IF Ramsey wants to be elected, he'll have to do far more than raise money. Here's where you can find his voting record:

    Under "Indigenous Peoples", there is NO "Sponsorships or Co-Sponsorships Under this Category"
    ISSUE POSITIONS: Project Vote Smart does not send the Political Courage Test to this office. Please call our Voter's Research Hotline at 1-888-VOTE SMART (1-888-868-3762) for more information.

    De: "Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey"

    January 12th marks the beginning of the legislative session and by
    state law I'll be restricted from accepting campaign contributions
    until the session adjourns.
