Weaver Won't Call For Rep. Byrd To Resign
Despite Rep. David Byrd apologizing ON TAPE to 1 of 3 women who say he sexually abused them in high school, Weaver tells (rumored primary challenger) Luke Tinsley she won’t ask Byrd to resign, defends disgraced Rep. Jeremy Durham who was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct – including sexual harassment – by 22 women.
Rep. Weaver was previously seen defending her decision not to call for the removal of the bust of the KKK’s first Grand Wizard from the capitol by saying “some of my best friends are black”.
PSA: ALL TENNESSEE REPS should be asked if they’ll call for Byrd’s resignation, and if they’ll call for the removal of the first KKK Grand Wizard’s bust from the capitol.
These things are about basic human decency, not partisanship.
