The Tennessee Forum has launched a direct mail campaign urging voters to remove Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Gary Wade and Justices Connie Clark and Sharon Lee from office. The mailing depicts the three as “liberal justices who do not represent our values” and links them to President Barack Obama. On one side of the flyer is a picture of a judicial gavel and the headline, “Drop the hammer on our liberal Supreme Court.” The group's leader, Susan Kaestner, said the mail piece had been posted to addresses statewide and should be arriving in most mailboxes today. The justices' campaign responded to the move saying it "typifies the political attack on our nonpartisan Tennessee Supreme Court." Knoxnews has more.
