Tennessee State Senator Ophelia Ford recently introduced a resolution to honor Justin Timberlake, a Tennessee native, "for his highly successful music career and for his meritorious service to the State of TENNESSEE."
But Sen. RAYMIND FINNEY, R-MARYVILLE, removed it from a list of resolutions that is expected to get unanimous support in the Senate. "It's not something I want my name on," FINNEY said.
Republican senators took issue with calling attention to TIMBERLAKE's latest album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds" and to song titles like "SexyBack" and "Rock Your Body."
The four-time GRAMMY winner is from MILLINGTON, a town near MEMPHIS.
Sign the petition, let Senator Finney know that Knoxville and the rest of TN want to see Justin honored!!!
