Tennessee money for Causey UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, May 10, 2010 at 1:21 PM

With help from U.S. Rep. Marion Berry, 1st District Democratic congressional candidate Chad Causey is looking to raise some Volunteer State bucks at a reception tonight at trendy Memphis restaurant Felicia Suzanne's.

In case you wondered: The "Ray" who distributed the invite and hand-written testimonial I've linked is, according to my source, Ray Coleman, a Memphis-area businessman with Arkansas investments who, it so happens, last year ran into a spot of trouble over a parking space. One Escalade + one Hummer + Germantown restaurant + concealed weapon = second-degree murder charge + civil laswsuit.

UPDATE FROM THE CAUSEY CAMPAIGN:

RE: "Tennessee Money for Causey"

Thanks, Max, for bringing this to our attention.  Ray Coleman is a well-known political donor in the Memphis area, and we were surprised to hear about this altercation involving him.  To separate this campaign from an ongoing legal matter, we are returning Mr. Coleman's campaign contribution.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
