On Saturday, the News Sentinel had this story of Commissioner Greg "Lumpy""" Lambert changing his sworn testimony from the 2007 Sunshine trial. Because surely if as he now says "Hutchison was the General and he was a soldier" then he would have testified to that in the deposition where he placed his hand on the Bible and swore to "tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God"

I attended the January 31, 2007 Commission meeting, where the Black Wednesday* appointments went down. I was there in large part due to my position as Republican Party Chairman. Lambert's new version is not accurate. Here is what is interesting, Lambert believes that if he helps some of the supporters of Burchett that in 2012, they will contribute to and assist him in being elected to the State House seat of either Harry Brooks or Bill Dunn. In politics, promises today never translate into promises kept tomorrow. Plus, Lambert is betting on Brooks or Dunn retiring in 2012. Another unlikely occurrence in my opinion. But time will tell, we will see.

*Knoxville businessman Walt Wojnar was the first person to use the term "Black Wednesday" and it has become the standard term for the Commission meeting on January 31, 2007. I wonder how much money in royalties, Wojnar receives for people using the term.
