Chattanooga Mayor Holds Fundraiser for Recall Legal Expenses

For $250, Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield will set you up with a dinner and a movie, reports the Times-Free Press. And he’ll pay his recall debt while he’s at it.
On Sept. 15, the mayor plans to hold a $250-per-person reception at the home of Capital Toyota dealer Bob McKamey to raise money for his ongoing legal battles with recallers. It’s all in an effort to pay off more than $50,000 in legal costs.
“I am not a wealthy person, but I do have a sense of responsibility to make sure that these costs are covered,” Littlefield wrote in a flier announcing the event.
The event will include the short 16-minute film, “Recall Fever,” produced by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Littlefield is shown prominently in the film, along with the mayors of Akron, Ohio, and Omaha, Neb.
…Jim Folkner, with the group Citizens to Recall Mayor Littlefield, said he was a bit surprised when he first heard the mayor was holding a fundraising event.
“It mystifies me that anybody would want to give money to stop an election,” Folkner said.
