Campfield: McKenzie after a free meal

To the surprise of no one, the County Commission voted down Commissioner Sam McKenzie's proposal to begin censure proceedings against state Sen. Stacey "Mr. Wrestling II" Campfield.

You can find the original story right smack here.

Sam was pretty upset with Stacey over the comments the good senator made about AIDS and monkeys and monkey sex. (Just Google "Stacey Campfield" and "monkey sex" and you'll see what I'm talking about. Heh.)

Anyhoo, KNS report Tom Humphrey talked with Stacey today about the commission's decision to not do anything. Campfield told him that the proposal "was ludicrous from the beginning" and he was not surprised at the rejection of what he considered a "partisan game." (Stacey is a Republican and Sam is a Democrat.)

Campfield also said Sam was "somebody looking for a free meal at the Bistro." (As opposed to Stacey who has been banned from the restaurant.)

One thing of note. When Sam initially proposed his resolution, Stacey said it had to do with the whole "Don't Say Gay" bill, or don't teach it, or whatever it is. Sam denied that and said it had everything to do with the monkey sex comments.

"Stacey's accusations that I want to teach homosexuality in classrooms is a flat out lie," McKenzie said during tonight's commission work session. "I am strongly against that. I do not want that at all. I do not think that's a way to instruct our children."

Well, apparently Stacey reiterated to Tom Humphrey that Sam did, in fact, say - on the Hallerin Hill show - that it was about the bill.
