When Butch Eley, Governor Bill Lee’s Chief Operating Officer, made an embarrassing, and telling, donation of $1,350 in February 2018 to Democrat Senate candidate Phil Bredesen it showed poor judgement at the very least.
Not to be outdone, Eley’s executive assistant apparently wants to insure that embarrassing contributions from Team Eley will continue.
But alas, what looks to be the contribution from Anna Catherine Davenport was not financial like that of her boss, Butch.
Her contribution was of the social media type.
A Facebook post from the account of Anna Catherine Davenport, apparently the same person as Eley’s executive assistant, which was quickly deleted, said that the “Highlight of the Day” was “getting to tell the Governor that some lady in the photo line called him a ‘stud muffin.’ ”
In a “Spoiler alert,” the now deleted Facebook post added that “he thought that was pretty great.”
Governor Stud Muffin??
True, it’s not as bad as embarrassing as, say, posing for a photo in a Confederate uniform in college – but it’s up there. Maybe that explains the Governor’s passion for repealing the “gym tax.”
