DEMOCRAT AMOS POWERS CALLS ON REP. WILLIAMS TO DEMAND EXPULSION OF REP. DURHAM
Cookeville, TN (14 July 2016) -- Candidate for State House District 42 Amos Powers called on Rep. Williams to demand a special session to expel embattled Rep. Jeremy Durham
“After the Attorney General’s report proved that Rep. Jeremy Durham sexually harassed young women and interns, the people of this district deserve to know where Representative Williams stands. He has a simple choice, either Rep. Williams stands with the almost two dozen victims of Rep. Durham’s sexual harassment and call for a special session immediately to vote to expel Rep. Durham or he can follow the Republican leadership as they continue in their failure of leadership and refuse to hold Durham accountable for his disturbing and disgusting behavior.
The people deserve to know whether Rep. Williams will continue putting politics ahead of people and if so, then it’s clearly time for new leadership in our district. Voters send people to Nashville to do the job of representing them and their interests, not the interests of members or political party. This matter is not a private matter when it happens at the state capitol. Everyday Tennesseans would have been fired for the exact same behavior.”
