Campfield Tells Constituent to See a Shrink, Take Meds



As part of our continuing series titled How Did This Assclown Ever Make It Into the Legislature? comes this email exchange between Sen. Stacey Campfield and one upset constituent:

Senator Campfield,

I am writing to you today as a mother, active citizen and born & raised Tennessean. You are an embarrassment to our great state. Folks all over the country and here in Tennessee are looking at the bills that you are proposing in shock. They are the most ignorant and morally lacking legislation that could be proposed this year. It is clear that you are targeting homosexuals and low income families with hogwash legislation. You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent us as a whole. We will do everything in our power to make sure that you are not here in 2014. There are numerous grass roots parties that are making their voices heard.

Telisha Arguelles Chris Cobb

And the senator's reply:

You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medications these days.

Yours in service,

Sen. Stacey Campfield

Cobb must have sent these emails to Knoxville's Metro Pulse too because the Pulse did its own blog post: "We are of course not surprised that Campfield would be so rude, but we were still taken a little aback. Therapy? Medication? Just because you disagree with someone?"

Update: Campfield admits to TMZ he sent the email. "When somebody gets into insulting or cussing or something along those lines, it breaks down communication and is not respectful," he said. "I’m not here to be their piñata."
