UPDATE: It turns out that DeSano Pizza Bakery was not aware of this event, and says they are not hosting it. More here.
It seems that Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and state Sen. Stacey Campfield will be co-hosting a fundraiser
at DeSano Pizza Bakery — it's a great place, and we won't hold this against them — later this month.
The opportunity to work for a better Tennessee in the State Senate for the past 3 years (as well as 6 years prior, serving as a member of the State House of Representatives) has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I greatly appreciate the confidence and trust placed in me by the citizens of my legislative district. I hope to continue working for the people of Tennessee, as an honored member of the State Senate, through our efforts to reduce government intervention, support individual responsibility, crackdown on acts of crime, and to promote economic growth.
The 2014 election cycle is just around the corner, and I am asking for your financial support for this up-and-coming campaign season. Although raising money is not amongst myfavorite campaign activities, being adequately funded is necessary for a successful campaign. Your support of this effort will go a long way in achieving this critical goal.
With that in mind—on October 22nd, Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey and I will be co-hosting a fundraiser reception from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The event will take place at DeSano Pizza Bakery, located in downtown Nashville at 115 16th Avenue South.
I wish you all to attend as my guest.
Please—feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions.
Sen. Stacey Campfield
2011 Flagler Road
Knoxville TN, 37912
But wait! There's more after the jump:
Campfield sent out the invitation from his state account. And that's a no-no. He quickly followed up with this:
Please disregard the previous e mail. It went out on my wrong account.
No worries, senator. Consider this whole thing — the whole thing — disregarded.
