Martha Boggs is a new American hero! Her Bistro at the Bijou, on Knoxville’s downtown Gay Street of all places, is bustling since she called state Sen. Stacey Campfield a sonuvabitch and tossed him out for making ignorant comments about AIDS on a radio show. Her sidewalk menu touts chicken livers and "No Stacey." Who could resist?
"He's gone from being stupid to dangerous," Boggs says. "It's just my way of standing up to a bully."
Knoxville News Sentinel columnist Sam Venable is promising to make the Bijou his new downtown Knoxville HQ. “Any joint that won't serve Stacey Campfield is my kind of place,” he writes.
Meanwhile over at Facebook, a brand-new Recall Campfield page boasts 1,142 "likes" and counting. Sadly, there's no recall provision in state law.
