Carrie Underwood tweets outrage at Tennessee 'ag gag' bill
Kansas, Montana and North Dakota have had these "ag gag" bills in place since the early 1990s, but last year Iowa passed one and Tennessee just passed one last week. One Tennessee resident who is not pleased is singer Carrie Underwood, a known animal rights supporter.
"Shame on TN lawmakers for passing the Ag Gag bill," tweets Underwood. "If Gov. Bill Haslam signs this, he needs to expect me at his front door. Who's with me?"
State Rep. Andy Holt, R-Dresden responds, "I would say that if Carrie Underwood will stick to singing, I'll stick to lawmaking."
Underwood fires back, "I should stick to singing? Wow...sorry, I'm just a tax paying citizen concerned for the safety of my family," and tweets out a link to an ASPCA action alert against the bill.
