Democrat Supporter and Former Close Advisor to Income Tax Proposing Governor Don Sundquist Bill Stokes in an effort at transparency today disclosed at today's Election Commission meeting something a Shock And Awe commenter revealed on February 8, 2012 here.
This morning Bill Stokes in representing an Anderson County Democrat resident in an effort to be a candidate for State House of Representatives stated that he would like to disclose that his daughter is an attorney with Knox County Law Director Joe Jarret. So, that a blogger doesn't mis state something about him. Why would Stokes take a shot at Mike Donila like that?
Stokes who has long been a constant enemy of Former Sheriff Tim Hutchison appears to be unable to bury the hatchet. You see Stokes was a supporter of Former Sheriff Joe Fowler who Hutchison beat in 1990. Then when Cathy Quist won Circuit Court Clerk, Stokes supported her opponent. When his motorcycle buddy Chadwick B. Tindell and his client/campaign manager got in a disagreement about Tindell's emails. Stokes got upset at the Sheriff's Department investigation that put Stokes between his buddy and his client who was also his State Senate Campaign Manager. It seems that Stokes is still stinging from his 25% vote for State Senate.
Stokes in disclosing his daughters position is moving in the right direction toward transparency. unfortunately, he is more than two months behind a loyal Shock And Awe reader.
