I particularly love The move did not sit well with Republicans in the Tennessee House, who called for an investigation on Thursday. "We are governed by the rule of law here in Tennessee and these actions are a clear infringement of this principle and set a dangerous precedence for our state," House Majority Leader Glen Casada and House Republican caucus chairman Ryan Williams wrote in a statement, according to the Commercial Appeal. Of course Republicans are pissed - they thought they had managed to ignore the will of the people by refusing the request for waiver, only to have an end-run done to circumvent their pathetic attempts to keep monuments to their white supremacist idols. *wipes a tear* Oh man oh man, the fact that they use the concept of private business against them is just icing on the cake. Priceless.
