After the St. Louis Tea Party suggested a few weeks ago that House Republican Speaker Steve Tilley is secretly doing the bidding of the New Black Panther Party by supporting local control of the St. Louis Police Department, Bill Hennessy is now suggesting that Tilley is "siding with the hardest of the hard left" because Tilley is listed as a cosponsor of a bill that would allow presidential elections to be decided by the national popular vote. In a post titled Steve Tilley vs The Constitution, Hennessy writes the following:
Make no mistake: on this issue, Tilley sides with the hardest of the hard left.He also wrote that
Team Tilley strikes out again.In a previous post titled, Steve Tilley vs Fiscal Responsibility, Hennessy said this:
Four men risked their political lives to help solve the problem of our lifetimes, but they forgot to massage Steve Tilley’s monstrous ego...That last quote was apparently a reference to Tilley's substantial donations from millionaire Rex Sinquefield.
According to the News-Leader.com:
And Tilley said the House won’t put too much weight on what he believes the Senate wants him to do.
“I’m not going to be held hostage by a few people,” he said.Of course not. Not unless the hostage takers are billionaires.
Though it's fun to read, there's really not much reason for Tilley to care about these threats. Mike Flynn of Big Government threatened to "go nuclear" on Tilley a few weeks ago if Tilley didn't "massage the tea party's monstrous ego" (my words). Tilley ignored him, and lost nothing by doing so.
