    Default State of Tennessee Passes Resolution to Honor Michael Jackson

    Tenn. House Narrowly OKs

    Michael Jackson Measure


    Associated Press - February 3, 2010 5:15 PM ET
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A resolution to honor the late pop superstar Michael Jackson has passed the Tennessee House with only one vote to spare.

    The resolution sponsored by Democratic Rep. G. A. Hardaway of Memphis passed Wednesday on a vote of 51-22. Measures need at least 50 votes to pass the 99-member chamber.

    Another 24 lawmakers abstained.
    Rep. Gerald McCormick, who voted for the bill, noted that Jackson was once married to Lisa Marie Presley of Memphis. In the Chattanooga Republican's words: "He was Elvis' son-in-law, and that ought to count for something."

    Democratic Rep. Henry Fincher of Cookeville said he voted against the measure because Jackson was "credibly accused of child molestation."

    Jackson was acquitted of all 14 counts against him at trial in 2005.

    I am more surprised that It passed. Now get one for Alabama, if they passed a resolution for that stupid homophobic airhead Carrie Prejean they can do one for Mike.

    And I would love to tell that Harry **** to go **** himself.

    that's beautiful news, though the member that abstained bites the governmental hand that feeds him, by not believing in the court system. maybe he should work for somebody who believe in the court of public opinion, and then that person should fire, him, because of an opinion, that the guy is evil.
    Activities, right into today, still prove that Harvard ain't got nothin' on Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.

    How much weight does him being "'credibly' accused" hold if he was proven not guilty? lol That's some b.s. right there, considering Elvis and his 'questionable decisions', but I digress....no, one more thing, Mr. Fincher, sit yo ass down! The house has spoken. Now, I digress..... WOO-HOOO!

    I'm sorry but did he just say that Mike was "cerdibly accused of child molestation"? Wtf...since when does being found not guilty on all counts mean you were "credibly" accused? And this is coming from an Elvis fan lmao.

    May I just suggest to all MJ fans of Tenessee to write that Democratic Rep who voted against the resolution citing as reason that MJ was 'credibly' accused of child molestation to get his facts straight. An ignorant, prejudiced person like that does not deserve to serve in a public office.

    "credibly accused"? He left out the "found innocent" part.

The man was innocent period after 15 years of investigation by the FBI flying around the world looking for a neddle in a haystack...idiots why do we even try to maker sense of the shit they say....Ignorant and they are in a public office?
