Chattanooga Organized for Action tried U.S. Rep. Charles “Chuck” Fleischmann today and found him guilty of murdering jobs.

The advocacy group, about 30 strong, marched from the Chattanooga Convention Center to the federal building to give Fleischmann the verdict.

Chattanooga Organized for Action, along with the Service Employees International Union, organized the protest, which coincided with Fleischmann and Gov. Bill Haslam speaking at the Convention Center.

For complete details, see tomorrow’s Times Free Press.

See more photos and video from the protest in the liveblog of today's Chamber of Commerce meeting here.

Where is Basil Marceaux when you need him. On a separate note, so there are Democrats in Chattanooga?

Too bad the protesters didn't have a two-faced dummy of Haslam outside to match the live one inside.

I can hear Uberfurher Haslam now concerning Amazon--"I was for it until I was against it. My word is my __(fill in blank, but the answer is not 'bond')."

And you thought Wamp was a liar.

No, we KNEW Wamp was a liar. Basil Marceaux would look absolutely statesmanlike next to Fleischmann. One wonders what the junket to Israel on AIPAC's dime added to Chuckie's ability to solve America's pressing problems.

Fleischmann has scheduled a series of town hall events in the area. They are all during normal working hours, but I hope lots of us can attend and ask him about the positions he has taken in the past two years.

Thirty people? Not exactly a ground swell.
