The dirt is coming forward about a new list of 180 people that had criminal background checks done by trooper Shirley. As more people are being informed that they were checked out This story keeps raising more and more questions in my mind.
What happened to the other 120 people that were originally mentioned? Do people remember it started as 300 names had been investigated? Now it miraculously dropped to 180. Where did the original number of 300 come from? Where did the other 120 go? Why did it take so long to come out after it was originally reported?
Who was this information being gotten for? The classic line "What did you know and when did you know it?" or "Did you ever talk politics with Trooper Shirley?" could be asked of several people.
I think to most readers this was obviously politically motivated. That is why I find it hard to believe that no actual politicians were on the list. Really? None? No one? Not even one? What is the reason to do politically motivated research if no politicians were researched? I understand investigating other people affiliated with politics but I find it hard to swallow that they would be the only people investigated. It is as if you took a hungry man to Ruth's Chris for a free meal and all he ordered was appetizers. You have to wonder about that.
Why did the governor suddenly leave Tennessee to help a presidential candidate that he had shown little inclination to help in the past, even in his own state, run for office? Didn't he say along the lines of "If he isn't going to invest time in Tennessee I am not going to invest time in him. I have other candidates in Tennessee I need to help."
