Letter from Representative Torrey Harris

Let me be clear. This hate and division is Bill Lee’s Tennessee, but this is not Tennessee. I am committed to defending our state from the destruction he and his fringe allies have created.

Representative Torrey Harris here; I represent the 90th District in West Tennessee. In case you missed it, yesterday, while we were on the House Floor, my colleague, Justin Lafferty, implied the three-fifths compromise (which designated slaves as 60% of a person) was a good thing and something we should celebrate. The other Bill Lee fringe allies cheered in response to this claim.


As a Black man, resident of Tennessee, and lawmaker, I am disgusted we have a state governed by some lawmakers who would uphold a claim that my ancestors aren’t fully human. I am pissed off that the minorities in our state have to endure these crude remarks that incite division and hate from those elected to serve and protect them.

Let me be clear. This hate and division is Bill Lee’s Tennessee, but this is not Tennessee. I am committed to defending our state from the destruction he and his fringe allies have created.

I cannot do this alone and I don’t have to. Last week, in less than 72 hours, two hundred brave and courageous Tennesseans made a donation to ensure the wreckage on Tennessee by Bill Lee and Justin Lafferty ends in 2022. If you are able, I hope you will join us in saving our Tennessee families from Bill Lee and gang.

$5, $10, $100, every cent counts and goes towards stopping Bill Lee, Justin Lafferty, and every single lawmaker wreaking havoc on this state. Will you join us by making a donation today?

Pissed off and ready for change,

-Representative Torrey Harris
