Stacey Campfield to go door to door insulting poor people
State Sen. Stacey Campfield announced Friday that he plans to go door to door throughout East Tennessee insulting the state's low income residents. The Knoxville Republican calls the idea a modest step on the road to "breaking the cycle of poverty." "Poor people have too much dignity," said Campfield. "That's a real problem. To break this terrible cycle, we need low income people to feel shame and humiliation. Then they won't want to be poor anymore. My plan is to go door to door to tell each poor person how lazy and worthless they are. I may also throw some cash down on the porch and roll around on top of it." This is not the first time Campfield has had the best interests of the poor at heart. In 2011 he donated several boxes of bootstraps to Goodwill for low income people to pull themselves up by.
