corker milks Sundquist/DC lobbyist teet

last I checked, the following information was STILL NOT posted on candidate corker's website/nor has the information been conveyed in one of corker's many blast emails around the state:

former Tennessee republican governor don sundquist (that wild and crazy guy who went against his own Party to push for a state income tax) is putting his money and what's left of his political ties in DC behind the candidacy of bob corker, his former state finance commissioner who is now running for the GOP nomination for the US senate.

According to a story in a 2005 article of the Lebanon Democrat newspaper, FEC disclosures showed that Sundquist made a $2,000 contribution to corker's campaign...ok, so one can argue maybe that's yesterday's news...but there's more...

THIS WEEK a group of DC lobbyists that include Charley Poe, former Sundquist body man and the husband of Alexia Poe, Sundquist's former press secretary, are hosting a DC fundraiser tomorrow for corker.
In case you happen to be in DC, here are details of corker's DC fundraiser:
Wednesday, February 1
1700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Suite 950

Poe, who nearly made The Hill newspaper's 2005 50 Most Beautiful lobbyists list (I'm not making this up folks!), is obviously going to be helping corker milk the DC lobbyist teet...which raises another question:

where does corker come off criticizing anyone for taking $ from out of state sources (see corker's earlier holier than thou emails and press releases slamming other senate candidates for raising money from out of state sources)??

Bob Corker is just like all the other Republicans. Just after the money at all cost. What a joke!
He needs to be sent back where he came from and the sooner the better!

Does anyone know who the wonderful Mr. Steve Gill is supporting? I try not to listen to him, it's bad enough I have to see him several times a week in the hook-up line at school.

I remember listening to him lecture everyone at a school function about Bredesen being the downfall of our state. I think for him to hear anything anyone else is saying you would have to say it like this "W Hi Steve how are you? W" He and his brainwashed cronies can only hear what is in between the W's.

Yes! It's going to be a BIG crowd! People are going to be there from ALL across the state.

Meet at the corner of McGavock and Music Valley Drive at the entrance to Opryland Hotel, from 10-Noon. BE THERE and pass it on!
