No. 7: Where's Lee? (June 10 - 16)

Mostly in Memphis! (Sorry, Memphis.)

As I said last week, I’m going to keep publishing Lee’s public media schedule weekly because the public, not just the media, deserves to know the little bit they can about his obfuscated schedule.

Lee is spending a lot of time in Memphis this week. (I guess trying to sell people that Bill Gibbons will totally be good at criminal justice reform or something? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.)

It’s also VERY worth noting that next Saturday at the TNGOP Statesmen’s Dinner, Lee does not have a press avail, only a photo avail, which is HIGHLY unusual. The Volkswagen union vote ends on Friday at midnight, so my guess is that should the union lose again, this will become a very triumphant Lee press avail after all. But given how the governor and his staff have attempted to interfere with the union vote, Lee should be up for answering questions — HARD QUESTIONS — whatever happens with the vote.
