Rep. David Byrd, accused of sexual assault, tells Republicans he will not seek reelection

After more than a year of being dogged with allegations of sexual assault, Rep. David Byrd told his House Republican colleagues Friday he would not seek reelection in 2020.

Byrd announced his decision during a closed-door caucus meeting less than an hour before the start of Friday's special legislative session.

A Tennessean reporter heard the discussion, which took place inside the legislative library.

Byrd, R-Waynesboro, is accused by three women of sexually assaulting them when they were teenagers in the 1980s while he was their teacher and basketball coach at Wayne County High School.

1. "Good Christian Family values" the GOP like to use.

They no longer have the right to use that tag line.

That which is repressed(sexuality), is often obsessed about(sex).
