Once again, State Legislature refuses to honor Nashville

A few weeks ago, the State Senate struck down a resolution to honor Renata Soto, a Nashville immigrant rights activist.

Now, Nashville-area State Representative John Ray Clemmons has withdrawn a resolution to honor the Bingham Cup, which is an international gay rugby tournament being held in Nashville this May.

He said that Republican opposition to the resolution prompted him to withdraw it for fear of creating a political firestorm over a simple resolution that was meant to honor a big event happening in his city.
