Writing for the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Washington correspondent Bartholomew Sullivan reports (emphasis added):
But Shuster’s apology may have been premature. The tiny hamlet of Bon Aqua, Tenn., is where Bohannon lived in the months immediately prior to entering the Army. The Census Bureau places his home in Blackburn’s 7th Congressional District.
He lived in Bon Aqua for “close to a year” immediately prior to entering the Army, said Tonya Taylor, 35, who permitted him to stay at her house while Bohannon was dating her daughter.
Bohannon grew up, was home-schooled and was buried in McEwan, which is clearly in the 8th Congressional District of U.S. Rep. John Tanner, D-Tenn. But his last legal address was in Blackburn’s district.
The Shuster haters will say that he still ambushed a Republican…
(Exhibit A: Our favorite douchebaggery email ever from one “Joe Taylors.” “MR. GAVIN: I cant believe you cant believe a congressman/woman doesnt know the name of the last soldier killed in Iraq. I doubt you even know the name of the guy whose [REDACTED] you sucked last or your wife sucking on some basketball player.” Editor’s note: I’m super psyched to finally be married, apparently. Thank you, eHarmony!!!)
…and Shuster supporters will note that Blackburn still couldn’t cough up the name of the last person from her district to die in Iraq.
And so it goes…
