How Repulsive!!! Kent Williams is a traitor to his own party. He will be a traitor to anyone who votes him in. However, it would not surprise me if this ignorant swaggering serpent did not get voted in due to apathy of the public. There should be a groundswell of people to revolt to his TRAITOR ways. And oh, the background music of "Amen Aliano" was just tooo much. Had me with my hanky out wiping tears and taking another drink of the vino.

Reader asks voters to remember Williamsí action

To the editor:

Rep. Kent Williams gave a radio interview approximately one week before the Tennessee Speaker of the House election Jan. 13, 2009. During the interview, Williams indicated that he was committed to his Republican colleague, Jason Mumpower, being elected as the new speaker. This was to be a historic day for the Republicans in that Mumpower was going to be the first Republican-elected speaker in nearly 40 years.

Many of you know that Williams failed tremendously in his commitment to Mumpower, the Republican party, and most importantly, the citizens of Carter County. When the time came for Williams to stand tall he actually buckled and fell to the floor, bringing shame to all those individuals that had placed confidence in him as a trustworthy man of honor and integrity. He is actually now branded as one not to be trusted for he clearly put his personal ambition, interest and gain before all others. In essence, his action has left Carter County without a voice in Nashville.

Kent Williams was also expelled from the Republican Party because of his alleged disloyal action and now chooses to run as an Independent candidate.

Considerable time has passed since that January day in 2009.

Two years ago the House took corrective action and elected Beth Harwell as the new speaker.

In just a few short days, you, the citizens of Carter County and Unicoi County, have an opportunity to save face by electing a new representative and establishing once again a clear voice of representation in Nashville.

Rep. Jason Mumpower was utilizing calculated political tactics (i.e.: pledge coercion) to lock Republican members of the Tennessee House of Representatives into voting for him as House Speaker and Rep. Kent Williams was utilizing a calculated political tactic to keep Mumpower away from pressing Democratic members of the Tennessee House to cast last minute ballots for Mumps...

I still laugh my ass off over about Mumpower ordering all of those 65 Tennessee state flags being ran up a capitol flag pole (albeit, at state expense - not too funny) during January 2009, all while strutting around his Legislative Plaza on the morning of the House Speaker vote with his photographers, his momma, and his family bible all in tow.

We don't go for "calculated political tactics" (AKA outright lies in this case) in Unicoi County.

Just wait until election day, Unicoi County will vote for Romney & Ryan, two of the biggest liars we have seen in years.
