A Williamson County Circuit Judge has declared Republican lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey “dumb as a rock” during a social media shoot-out about the actions of a Franklin GOP state house leader.
Rep. Jeremy Durham under fire by some after it was revealed he wrote a letter to a Federal Judge, requesting leniency for a youth pastor found guilty of child pornography.
Ramsey’s Facebook post accused Durham of using poor judgement by writing the letter on behalf of Pastor Joseph Neill, who was investigated for having sexual contact with a 16-year-old member of Shelbyville’s north fork Baptist church.
The Tennessean reports judge Michael Binkley made a Facebook post on Friday, defending Durham’s letter as a sign of “moral courage” and guts. He slammed Ramsey’s criticism of Durham, posting Ramsey is known as “Mr. Brilliant” on capitol hill or simply stated “Ramsey is dumb as a rock”. That post has since been deleted.
