When asked what policy would most benefit the citizens of east Tennessee and help put the Volunteer State back to work,one state Senate candidate had a simple answer:impeach Barack Obama.
The Knoxville News Sentinel gave the three women seeking the Republican nomination a questionnaire asking if they could be guaranteed of passing just one law,what would they choose? Victoria DeFreese,a 37-year-old teacher and former Knox County Commissioner,responded:
Because the federal government manages the macro-economy and that impacts all states,if I could introduce one piece of legislation that would be ensured passage,I would suggest a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Obama. If we could join with other states and pursue that,that is what I would like to do.
DeFreese is seeking Tennessee’s 6th district state Senate seat being vacated by Jamie Woodson,who has served in the Senate since 2005 and is presently Speaker Pro Tem. Republican voters will weigh in today on the decision.
