Tennessee Senator's "Don't Say Gay" attack on a constituent goes viral

Political watchers are abuzz over an email spat between Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield and a constituent who says his proposed “Don’t Say Gay” legislation is “an embarrassment to our great state”.

“You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent as a whole,” says an email from Telisha Arguelles Cobb that is circulating on several political sites.

Campfield responded “You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues,”

“Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medication these days.”

Cobb posted Campfield’s reply on Reddit, as well as the email she sent to the Knoxville Republican.

1. Yep, being a senator has nothing to do with not being an absolute asshole. These

jerks like him make major embarrassments to states. I live in one where if the politicians shut their fucken mouths the rest would think better of us.

2. I live in Knoxville, but, thankfully, not in his district.

If you look up "nutjob" in the dictionary, Campfield's picture is there.
