TN Sen. Stacey Campfield nasty email response goes viral

RE: Classroom Protection Act, which would discourage classroom discussions of homosexuality, and his proposal to tie welfare benefits to children’s performance in school.


E-mail from citizen:

"I am appalled at your thought of and how it will protect children. I to be proud to call Tennessee my home but after this I am not so sure. Your mind set is pathetic as well as this bill. I encourage you to change your mind or you will make a bunch of people very upset. Imagine, if you have kids and one was gay, how this bill would affect them and you."

Senator Stacey's reply:

"You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medications these days.
Yours in service,
Sen. Stacey Campfield
=========================

A nasty email that state Sen. Stacey Campfield fired off to several critics has drawn yet another round of notoriety for the Knoxville Republican.

The firebrand lawmaker told at least three people who wrote his office that they should consider therapy and medication after they expressed opposition to legislation he has filed this session.

“You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues,” read the identically-worded messages. “Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medications these days.”

Campfield signed the messages, “Yours in service.”

2. My thought exactly.

The hate runs so deep and intense that they just can't face it and deal with it.

We all know who needs therapy.

4. I think

 

Campfield needs to take his own advice. Now what is your problem with Gay people and the poor? If it is what I think it is, we do have a diagnosis for you. "yours in service."
