June 4, 2019 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) – Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini released the following statement in response to reports that Glen Casada will delay his resignation as House Speaker until August 2, 2019:

“Two Months? Once again, Glen Casada is disrespecting the voters and taxpayers of Tennessee. Every day that Glen Casada is in office is a slap in the face to to women, communities of color, and all Tennesseans who expect real work and not lines of coke to be done at the state capitol. Democrats have been sounding the alarm since Casada’s corruption began, and we’ll continue to fight to restore accountability and decency to the Tennessee legislature.”
