If the Republican Party of Greene County is the Party of God and Family, I am very proud to be a Democrat.

human nature being what it is, it is sad to see a public display of our failings. no one person represents the entire group, just as having one crooked auto salesman does not make them all bad - but then we like to paint all those associated with them with the same brush don't we? eddie now has a great shot at being our next representative as he is not only 'the lessor of two evils' but is a decent man to boot. I have to believe he will work hard for all greene county folks, extra hard, I believe, just to show over the next two short years, what is possible when one focuses on the job and not all their personal drama

You make one mistake in your argument, the person did not elect himself to represent the party, the members of the party did, therefore it is totally acceptable to challenge the integrity of the whole party. Believe me the corruption of the Republican Party in Greene County goes way beyond this one individual. This thread is not about Yokley and Hawk, when all is said and done Yokley is nothing but a Greene County Republican with a Democrat label behind his name, probably some loyalty to his family. These are two bad apples just like the Republican Primary was a test between two bad apples. Greene County is utterly corrupt and its corruption comes straight from the Republican Party of Greene County.

The only issue which has been "hurting" the Republican party for quite a long time now IS individuals running on the Republican ticket when they are TRUE democrats. Eddie Yokley is a true Democrat. Shakes hands like a woman, can't look you in the eye, only goes to church when it helps to get him elected, takes two paychecks from the tax payers (can't be in two places at one time) and the list goes on and on.

I know of two true Republicans, one was a sheriff who was removed from office a few years ago for corruption and the other was a sheriff who left office in disgrace after facilitating the escape of a prisoner, he should have went to the pen but wound up in retirement, "you know me friends I go to church with you, you know in your heart I would not do such a thing." Typical Republican excuses call Church into play when you are guilty as sin...Same oh, same oh, same oh, coming out of that Greene County Republican Party Machine...

St. Peter: Do you know what that Greene County Republican Representative said the other day?

GOD: Yes, I heard.

St. Peter: He said, "As God is my witness, she had a gun and was going to kill me and my baby."

GOD: I heard.

St. Peter: What are you going to do about it?

GOD: Spend a lot of time Roasting Greene County Republican MARSHMALLOWS!!!!!!!!

Seems to me like we had a Republican Policeman who shot and killed a man who had committed no crime. Got no time, did not lose his job, his wife was elected to office and I hear his son replaced her in one of those under the table deals where she resigned and he got appointed and then he was elected. Greene County Republicanism at its finest.

Can you be more specific? I would like clearer details on this issue.

So we take from this that Republicans typically kill innocent people and get rewarded?

Speaks for itself... If not try that recorder of infamous Republican History of Greene County, The Greeneville Sun or better yet check around Republican Headquarters and inquire.

You said it I didn't. Just present the facts as they are and draw your own conclusion. Corruption is an evil thing, when it gets as bad as it is in Greene County, then nothing which anyone does who is in power is wrong, case in point David Hawk, if he has a fourth wife, God bless her ignorant soul, and he eventually gets so angry he kills her, will the good Republican Party of Greene County still protect him, could very well happen.

These same liberals will bash our local politicians, but put on blinders when it comes to the deep corruption within the democratic party on the state and federal level. Look at all the corruption among Chicago politicians, from which Obama surfaced. You can make a list a mile long of corruption among Dems, including Obama and his cronyism and lack of transparency, when he said he would do just the opposite.

All politics is local, get rid of the corruption in your own community. There is enough there in the local Republican Party to keep one busy for a long time. Quit voting Democrat, quit voting Republican, try to find a few honest people to run, may be to late, the people are so brainwashed over conservative and liberal, they don't see the corruption in both, but here in the local community especially the Republican Party.

There are David Hawk posters all over Greene County in what you might call Redneck Yards. Many are not even in his Representative District. So, the issue is not whether Hawk will be found guilty or not in Greene County, he will not because all it will take is one of these Rednecks sitting on the jury and he is scott free and it will be impossible for Hawk's Wife's attorneys to keep them all off, there are too many in Greene County, the real issue is can he be elected? With the help of his Republican Comrades he has succeeded in postponing the trial until after the election, now the vast amount of money which the Republican Machine can produce will be used to try to brainwash the people into believing this is the best person for the job. Utterly unbelievable, Orwellian to the nth degree. We are not free thinking people anymore, we are zombies spouting crap put in our heads by talking heads who are being paid millions to make us zombies.

You can make a list of corruption a mile long of both political parties. It's not just one or the other, most people are just a little more willing to overlook the corruption in their party...

There was an audit a few years ago of the person who was supposed to be in charge of collecting and protecting the taxpayers payments to the government. Yes, he was a Republican and no he was not found guilty of anything but it raises some questions about corruption of Greene County Republican Officials. What the person was doing was collecting the taxes and not depositing them in the County Account at the bank in a timely manner, sometimes as much as 3 months late. Now, the audit only said the official should deposit the money in a more timely manner, preferably once a day. But one has to ask where was the money during the time period it was not deposited, perhaps sitting in the Republican Elected Official's Mattress at home might be a guess but probably not a good one. My guess is there was an account at a bank which was not in the County's Name but in someone else's name and the official collected interest off this account until it was finally transferred to the actual County Account perhaps at the same bank or maybe a second bank. I could be wrong you know, this particular Republican was in office for a long, long, long time.

90% of all the people in Greene County who spout out the terms Conservative and Liberal have no clue as to what they mean and that is a very, very Conservative estimate.

There is conflict of interest in every document issued by both the City and County Governments of Greeneville and Greene County and if you believe otherwise I have some ocean front property in downtown Romeo you can have for a mere one half million dollars, a bargain if I do say so myself in the present real estate environment in Greene County.
