A half dozen County Republican Chapters including Williamson County have passed resolutions condemning Governor Bill Haslam or calling for sanctions against him. Some GOP members are taking issue with Haslam employing openly gay staffers and the hiring of Muslim American Attorney, Samar Ali. Tea party members accuse Haslam of abandoning conservative values.
