Sasser messes up again; has to pull TV ad

Tennessee Democratic Party leader Gray Sasser has messed up again. This time he had to pull an inaccurate TV ad and change the wording after being threatened with a lawsuit.

The dean of Capitol Hill reporters, Tom Humphrey, reported the following:

Chad Faulkner, the Republican running for the 36th District House seat, said Thursday that the state Democratic Party attacked him personally in a "slanderous" television advertisement.

The Democratic Party agreed to change the ad after Faulkner threatened a libel lawsuit.

Faulkner faces Democrat Roger Byrge in the Nov. 4 election.

"We caught them in a lie," Faulkner said.

The seat, formerly held by Republican Rep. William Baird, is considered one of the most competitive House races in the state. The district covers Campbell and Union counties.

The impotent Tennessee Dems -- who in no way resemble the national ones -- had to reword the ad and then put it back on TV. They claimed Faulkner had cost taxpayers $1.2 million as sheriff. The truth was that he had been sued for $1.2 million but the lawsuit failed to collect one penny or cost taxpayers.

Sasser needs to spend less time combing his hair and appearing on Bob Mueller's "Good Ol' White Boys" political TV show and pay attention to keep his political party from being sued and grossly misleading the voters.
