TNGOP: Mitchell’s Lawsuit ‘A Political Stunt’

Press release from the Tennessee Republican Party; October 30, 2014:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney released the following statement after Democrat Bo Mitchell’s (D–Nashville) press conference that amounted to little more than a political stunt:

“When you’re losing, you lash out. Democrat Bo Mitchell is proving this bit of political wisdom correct once again.”

“Republicans and Independents are voting against Mitchell. Why? Because they are tired of his political games, his ineffective record, and his disturbing ties to Barry Stokes, the mastermind of one of the most destructive Ponzi schemes in Tennessee history.

“Today’s political stunt is classic misdirection from him. It was meant to deflect from the fact Republicans are strongly opposing Democrat Bo Mitchell. He fabricates an association between our Republican nominee and an education reform group, yet cries foul when it’s pointed out he has a disturbing association with a man who swindled $19 million from unsuspecting victims. That’s blatant hypocrisy and we expect voters will see right through it.”
