I was talking to an elected official yesterday. She told me about a nasty mailer that made reference to "national blogger Brian Hornback". I have continued to receive numerous phone calls about the letter. I haven't seen the letter, but the attack on a good corporate citizen of Knoxville is uncalled for. In addition, if it is exactly as it was read to me it is malicious and I hope the identity of the originator is discovered. I talked with Lloyd Daugherty, Chairman of the Tennessee Conservative Union today. About 14 members of the TCU's have called him about the letter. Of the ones he has talked to, it seems that the members in the Fountain City area of Knoxville were a target.
