Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett's cash mob has garnered a little bit of national attention. MSNBC picked up the story. You can find that by clicking right smack here.
Also, note, however, that it appears the county didn't oblige by the suggested rules of the cash-mob society, or whatever.
Rule No. 8 states: The business (in the case Emery's 5 & 10 on Chapman Highway) must be within one block of a locally-owned watering hole.
Rule No. 9 states: Cash Mobbers must join us for celebratory drinks after the successful mob.
(Starting to wonder if soccer hooligans came up with this whole cash mob thing.)
Anyhoo, the local cash mob Facebook page has also garnered a little bit of activity after Burchett revealed that his chief of staff, Potentate Rice, thought the event was a bad idea.
Course, as one commenter said: Rice rarely agrees with anything on MSNCB
