This morning, while listening to the Ed and Bob Show on WNOX FM 100.3 a caller brought up that Amy Gibson the author of the Compassion Knoxville study that is being released today had as her Facebook profile picture a photograph with the three campaign badges for the three candidates that have supported the Ten Year Plan. I didn't think much about it. Until I got back to my office this afternoon and received an email from one of my sources. The source informed me that Ms. Gibson had changed her profile picture to a photograph without campaign badges. Why would she do that?
Sources close to Compassion Knoxville have raised the possible reasons today. Gibson is apparently concerned that people would perceive a bias towards favoring the old Ten Year Plan. This Compassion Knoxville report is the old Ten Year Plan with two more big ticket items paid for with local tax dollars. The "wet shelter" safety center and the mobile health clinic. So this is the old Ten Year Plan but more expensive. That is not what the voters want and this raises the question that a Madeline Rogero supporter was in charge of Compassion Knoxville. The comments and the topic group discussions do not match the recommendations of the Compassion Knoxville Report.
According to my source, this is the photograph that was on her Facebook page this morning.
