This afternoon the Nashville Metro Council voted to reappoint Tennessee Democratic Rep. Justin Jones to the state House. It was a 36–0 vote. I understand he has already been sworn in and seated. Let’s hope Justin Pearson gets the same support in Memphis.
There are reports from credible sources today that Tennessee Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton, who led the effort to get the Tennessee Three expelled from the legislature, does not live in his own district. He has a condo in his district, but his primary home appears to be elsewhere. This puts him in violation of the state Constitution.
