Casada saga continues
Tennessee House Republicans are expected to meet Monday to discuss the political future of embattled Republican Speaker Glen Casada. The meeting behind closed doors comes as the speaker's continued leadership has been rocked after lewd and racist group text messages between Casada and his then-chief of staff, Cade Cothren, were released. Several Republicans and the House Democratic Caucus have called on Casada to resign. "The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the sentiment of the Caucus regarding support for Speaker Glen Casada and to conduct, if duly moved by the Caucus, a secret ballot vote to establish whether Speaker Casada has the support of the Caucus to continue in his current position as Speaker of the House of Representatives," said Republican Rep. Jerry Sexton. "The overarching goal is that we move forward as a constructive, united Caucus for the House as a body on behalf of all Tennesseans. The meeting is called for these purposes and no other.
