After a fundraiser at DeSano Pizza fell through when he apparently failed to discuss it with the restaurant, state Sen. Stacey Campfield is trying again.
The Knoxville Republican is sending out a change of location mailer — which can be seen after the jump — to announce that the fundraiser will now take place on the same date and time (Oct. 22, 5-7 p.m.) at Mafiaoza's in 12 South, another pizza joint which we won't begrudge for (maybe) hosting this event.
Given the DeSano incident, we contacted Mafiaoza's to see that they're hosting the event (or warn them).
"We are not hosting anything. We've taken a reservation for dinner," owner Lars Kopperud said. He asked Pith what the fuss was about, apparently unfamiliar with the entertainment that is The Stacey Campfield Show.
Kopperud said that there was a reservation for 12 on the books.
"I can't help what people talk about," he said. "I'm in the pizza business, not the censorship business."
Campfield might have lucked into a good spot, though: It will be Two-for-Tuesday at the pizza joint.
When you click through the jump to see the mailer, check out the return address, leading one back to his state Senate office. (That's still illegal.)
