WASHINGTON, DC – Are U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and his sore horse crowd led by TWHBEA President Steve Smith trying to snooker the Press by alluding to a possible compromise involving the PAST ACT when that is a total fabrication?
Last week, distinguished reporter Paul Barton, who covers Capitol Hill for The Tennessean newspaper owned by Gannet Corporation, reported the following:
“Meanwhile, Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire are exploring the possibility of a new bill that might bridge differences between them.”
Reliable sources confirm that Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has not and is not exploring the possibility of a new bill that might bridge the differences between the PAST ACT (52 co-sponsors) and Senator Alexander’s bill (4 co-sponsors).
Senator Ayotte will not compromise over removing the pads and chains from the Tennessee Walking Horse to end the sore Big Lick.
If you want to know the true story of Senator Lamar Alexander’s involvement with this tawdry sore Horse mess,
JUST FOLLOW THE MONEY
It goes from Steve Smith to Lamar Alexander.
It’s a $3 Million Dollar deal and the mainstream Tennessee media, for some strange reason, won’t go anywhere near the story.
TWHBEA President Steve Smith is Senator Alexander’s Campaign Finance Chairman.
Along with David L. Howard, Steve Smith is one of the leaders of the sore Big Lick.
Steve Smith received a Horse Protection Violation notice in the past, and then he forgot all about it last October when he was required to answer the following question before he could run for TWHBEA President.
Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) alternative Bill, which featured the input of the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ , was overwhelmed in the House by support for the PAST ACT (273 co-sponsors)
Then Alexander lent his good name to this bad proposition.
Alexander’s is a last gasp attempt by the sore Big Lickers. For some time now, the LIcker have been desperate to get the Sound Side to the table and set up a compromise where the sore Big Lick could keep a 1/2 stack and a leather dog collar action device.
That is not going to happen.
It would be a shame if the mainstream press lets Senator Alexander and his folks continue to mislead them.
SENATOR KELLY AYOTTE’S LETTER WRITTEN ON MAY 8, 2014
Nephew Eugene says #OUTOFTOUCHALEXANDER needs to get in touch.
Nephew Eugene thinks the real story here is why the mainstream press doesn’t ask soon to be 74-year-old Senator Lamar Alexander why he is staining his legacy by taking the inhumane side of this issue while doing the bidding of Campaign Finance Chairman sore Big Lick Leader Steve Smith.
Senator Alexander loves baseball analogies. He gives an example of players taking steroids, but you don’t eliminate the National Pastime because of it.
Senator Alexander is so Out Of Touch that he doesn’t realize that Baseball is no longer the National Pastime, and more importantly, ballplayers make a choice to do steriods.The Tennessee Walking Horse doesn’t have a choice about being sored.
Senator Alexander, for God’s sake, and yours, please step aside and stop lending yourself to being the Face Of Horse Abuse In Tennessee.
This, sir, is becoming your legacy.
