Here are some political sites or blogs with announcements of, or reactions to, State Rep. Curt Cobb's decision to leave his legislative seat and take a job as Bedford County Clerk and Master:

  • Adam Kleinheider, Post Politics web site at Nashville Post. Check the comments under the post for speculation about what will happen next and how it will affect the balance of power in the House.
  • Sean Braisted, Nashville for the 21st Century.

I just hope that this doesn't open the door for Blanton to get into office . . .

John, Can you or anyone who reads this please explain in cornbread terms what the motive or accused motive is concerning Cobb's decision to do this?

Why do you think there is an accused motive for Curt to resign?

I can see 3 reasons for him wanting to resign.

1) to spend more time with his family

2) Not work ridiculous hours

3) to make better money

I don't know about you, but I would resign also.

I know Curt personally and I'm glad he's leaving and getting out of the rat race down there in Nashville. He's too decent to be in politics.
