State Rep. Mike Turner (D-LookForTheUnionLabel) has a cat to walk back, for these comments.
“Gov. Haslam, if you’re listening, please stop this terrorism against our teachers.”
That comment followed a slam at Gov. Bob Haslam for what Turner characterized as Haslam being born to “wealth and privilege.” Turner was last seen on the national stage accusing ObamaCare opponents of racism.
What’s the terrorism? Gov. Bill Haslam is facing budget crises similar to those in other states, and is trying to curb union benefits and collective bargaining privileges, and Haslam happens to be a Republican.
