Republican gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd’s campaign team was fired up to be in West Tennessee last week!
After opening a Shelby County HQ last Saturday, they capped the day by dressing down Shelby County’s GOP chairman and terrorizing diners at the GOP dinner that night.
All because they weren’t treated the way they believed they deserved to be treated.
As reported to The Tennessee Star tip line (and subsequently confirmed in other media reports):
Chip Saltsman got so mad last night at Shelby County GOP Chair Lee Mills because Diane Black was on the agenda to introduce Senator Tim Scott he screamed at Lee and called him a p***y in front of everyone in the hotel lobby.
In case you can’t figure out what p***y spells, think of those little pink hats that all those angry women wore while marching. Chip has spent time in D.C. and maybe that’s how they talk to each other “up there” but in Tennessee we express our displeasure with at least a touch of C-I-V-I-L-I-T-Y.
Campaign managers of self-described MODERATES like Randy Boyd should also realize that calling someone a cat can be offensive if that someone is really a dog person.
As if Chip’s rant wasn’t enough, Boyd’s political director Bonnie Brezina started SCREAMING at folks eating at a certain table which she wanted for her candidate’s folks. According to reports from diners, you could have heard her screaming from Shelby County all the way to East Tennessee.
There was nothing MODERATE about the behavior of Boyd’s campaign team Saturday night. And Boyd is reported to be spending BIG money trying to shake off the MODERATE label he gave himself. Believe it or not, he wants people to believe that he’s really a conservative even after he told his hometown weekly that, “I’m probably the most hated, disrespected, untolerated political entity in existence… I’m a moderate.”
And to hammer home the idea that Boyd really believes he’s a conservative – the kind who keeps going out of his way to remind us that he idolizes never-Trumper Mitt Romney – he’s built his finance team with folks who have helped raise money for pro-illegal-alien-amnesty establishment Republicans like Lamar Alexander.
Boyd has also made a place on his team for Taylor Ferrell, a former “consultant” paid by the GOP state party to work against several conservative incumbents during the 2016 primary races. Taylor’s husband Walker
was kicked out left his position as political director of the TNGOP after 27 state legislators exposed the unethical maneuverings to skirt the party’s by-laws so that his wife could get paid to try and unseat conservative incumbents.
