PAC airs second radio ad attacking ‘dishonest Diane Black’

A political action committee funded by millionaire businessman Joe Hollingsworth of Clinton is airing a second radio commercial attacking “dishonest Diane Black” as a gubernatorial candidate, reports Tennessee Star.

The latest 60 second radio ad from a group called Tennessee Jobs Now PAC (TnJobsNow.com) is airing on several stations across the state and follows up on an ad campaign in January that featured a man and woman talking about “Dishonest Diane” directing state contracts to her husband’s company while flushing money down the toilet — to keep Diane Black from getting her hands on it.

FULL TRANSCRIPT:

MALE: Are you in this country illegally AND in need of government ID?

If so, come on down to the Tennessee Department of Motor Vehicles.  We’re here to help.  No questions asked.

If you’re an illegal immigrant who’s a drug dealer, human trafficker, even a terrorist, we’ll make sure you get ID to stay in the United States undetected.

FEMALE:  What you just heard, isn’t a real ad.  But career politician Diane Black actually thought it was a good idea to give illegal immigrants drivers’ licenses in Tennessee. It wasn’t — and leaders in Tennessee came to their senses and stopped it.

In the Tennessee legislature, dishonest Diane Black voted to hand out drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants. Black’s vote made it easier for drug dealers, human traffickers, even terrorists, to stay in this country. That’s outrageous. And that’s Diane Black’s real record.

Dishonest Diane Black. Bad judgement. Not right for Tennessee.

Tennessee Jobs Now PAC paid for and is responsible for the content of this advertising. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.”

House Speaker Beth Harwell, who is also running for Governor, was among the House members who voted for the same bill to give drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants in 2001.  Harwell, however, is not mentioned in the SuperPAC ad. After 9-11, when some of the terrorists used drivers’ licenses issued in other states to board planes that they “weaponized” to murder over 3,000 people at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Tennessee quickly stopped issuing the drivers’ licenses.

Black has recently been an outspoken opponent to legislation pending in the state legislature that would provide for in-state tuition discounts for illegal immigrants.

Note: The PAC, created in December, has filed only one financial disclosure, dated Dec. 31, and reported receipt of $200,000 from Hollingsworth as its only funding. Post on the PAC’s first ad is HERE; a subsequent post on Hollingsworth’s ties is HERE. Excerpt from the latter:

Hollingsworth is the father of Trey Hollingsworth, the Tennessee transplant who was elected to Congress in Indiana in 2016. A group called Indiana Jobs Now spent heavily in that race, and the Tennessee group’s website is registered to the same GOP operative, James McKay of New Hampshire.

    The adds are funny but not that meaningful and the first one didn’t make much sense if you listened closely which I don’t advise. It’s good to see a tepid conservative lady like Black running for high office with about $100 million in the bank verbally roughed up a bit but hopefully conservatives won’t take their eye off the ball.

    These adds are being run by supporters of Randy! Boyd, the only self-confessed “moderate” running for Governor in the Republican Primary. He is, therefore, the LEAST desirable candidate of the four. Conservatives will probably see very little difference between Black and Harwell as Governor with Lee being an “unknown.” With Boyd, I foresee eight years of constant bickering as Randy! does what he can to bring the pathologies of liberal governance to this state. If conservatives divide their vote three ways we will be stuck with Randy!.

    Please stay loose my conservative friends. Let’s see who has the best chance of beating Boyd before the election and give him or her our vote. Our cry when voting for Governor must be “ANYBODY BUT BOYD!”

    ANYBODY BUT BLACK OR,HARWELL THEY SUPPORT ILLEGALS TO HAVE AMERICAN RIGHTS AND THEIR ILLEGAL. DEPORT,DEPORT,DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS AND THE ONES THAT SUPPORT THEM.

  • James White says:

    ANYBODY but Blackburn !

  • James White says:

    How did Blackburn vote back in 2001 ?

    • Donna Locke says:

      Marsha Blackburn voted against the driver’s licenses for illegal aliens in 2001. Although I lived in Atlanta at the time, I had the roll call vote from the clerk’s office and sent it to Steve Gill to read on the radio. More than one bill to do this had been in play. The Democrats controlled the legislature, and Sundquist, the Republican governor at the time, was for the bills because the Farm Bureau and certain others wanted it.

      Marsha, Diane Black, and Mae Beavers quickly led a repeal effort.

    • Donna Locke says:

      By the way, hi, Mickey.

  • Eddie White says:

    James,
    You are going to get a chance to vote against Blackburn. Vote for Bredesen, you will be helping elect a liberal to the senate, but you won’t be voting for Blackburn.

  • Eddie White says:

    James, in some cases you are right. In this case, you are wrong.

    • James White says:

      Let’s see, Republicans control the House, Republicans control the Senate, Republicans control the Executive Branch and THEY just keep spending and spending (what is the difference again?)
