Tip: People Read Facebook

Hillary Pate apparently took to Facebook to commend two Republican House members who “had the courage to stand up and vote NO to the (state) budget.” State Rep. Judd Matheny and state Rep. Jeremy Durham were the only two Republicans who did.

But, according to the Nashville Scene, Pate is the campaign spokeswoman for state Rep. Joe Carr, a Republican running against U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander in the primary. Carr voted for the budget, evidently lacking the “courage” to do the right thing.

After a report appeared in the Scene’s Pith in the Wind blog, it was taken down.
