Mike Turner Smacks Tennessee's Hee Haw GOP for HB600, "Don't Say Gay"



“It hurts business. It’s embarrassing for me to talk to people in other parts of the country. It hurts our image down here. We had an image of everybody being barefoot and bucktoothed with cow licks on the sides of their head. [In the past], we came a long way to try to diminish some of that. We might have stepped back in the pack in the South.”
Rep. Mike Turner, House Democratic Caucus chairman, on the economy-boosting power of the Republicans' social agenda bills

(Bonus Turner quote: "A lot of people around the country might think Sen. Campfield is a typical legislator here in Tennessee, which is unfortunate.")
