Timeline of Stacey Campfield

2014

On August 7, 2014, Campfield was defeated 66%-28% in the Republican state senate primary by Knox County Commissioner Richard Briggs who outspent Campfield almost 4 to 1 (Briggs $380,000.00 to Campfields $100,000.00). Briggs had courted many high-profile Democrats who had openly encouraged Democrats to cross party lines to unseat Campfield in the Republican primary.

In 2014 Campfield passed legislation making rescue and shelter dogs and cats the official state pet of Tennessee. Campfield said the move was made to draw more people into adoption of rescue and shelter dogs and cats.

On May 5, 2014, Campfield drew widespread criticism for a blog post comparing mandatory signups under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to the “train rides” the Jews took under Nazi Germany (“Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s.”). Campfield responded to the criticism saying it missed his point about “government mandates and bureaucrats deciding who should be given life saving medications and who should be denied” and government funding for abortion.

In 2014 Campfield passed legislation protecting schools, teachers and students from possible prosecution for using traditional winter holiday greetings or displays. The bill allowed for religious symbols and greetings to be used as long as more than one religion was recognized by the school. The legislation received condemnation from groups like the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation who sent letters to schools threatening legal action previous to the bill’s passage.

2013

In January 2013, Campfield introduced a modified version of his “Classroom protection act” bill. This version allows teachers and guidance counselors to answer a child’s private questions about sexuality, but forces the counselors to tell the child’s parents if those responses included activity that could be life-threatening or possible sexual abuse. Many gay rights advocates believed this information could result in the disclosure of a child’s sexual orientation to their parents.

In 2013, Campfield introduced Senate Bill 0132, which cuts by 30% the payment made to parents or caretakers of children in families eligible for Tennessee’s Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program if any of the children fail to meet requirements for grades or attendance and the parent refused to go to any parent teacher conferences, parent counseling or to enroll their child in free tutoring programs.

In April 2013, Campfield postponed this Bill after an organized protest by community activists at the State Capitol. Eight-year-old Aamira Fetuga followed him around Capitol Hill with a signed petition opposing the bill while asking him questions and sharing her concerns. Campfield said “Children should not be used as props to push their parents agenda.” The bill was postponed shortly thereafter but was passed the next year with stronger requirements and tougher restrictions.

In 2013 Campfield appeared on CNN with Piers Morgan and debated gun rights and a possible gun ban in the USA. Campfield called gun control a failure and at one point asked when Morgan planned to fulfill his promise to leave the USA if gun control failed. Morgan said he would “Wait and see”. Campfield would later move to stop local municipalities from implementing second amendment restrictions beyond what the state had implemented saying the state constitution only allows the legislature to regulate the wearing of arms and that “constitutional freedoms should be protected at all levels, not struck down at the lowest level. We should no more accept local restrictions on the second amendment than we do the first”.

2012

In 2012 Campfield moved to have state funding removed from abortion provider Planned Parenthood and turned over to state health departments who do not perform abortions. The move was made as a budget amendment and removed millions of potential tax dollars from the abortion provider and sent them to the state health department.

In a January 2012 interview with Michelangelo Signorile, Campfield replied to a question on the history of AIDS “most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community – it was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall…. My understanding is that it is virtually – not completely, but virtually – impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex…very rarely [transmitted].” He later quoted the odds of heterosexual vaginal transmission at 1 in 5 million.

On January 29, 2012, the owner of the cafe Bistro at the Bijou, Martha Boggs in Knoxville asked Stacey Campfield to leave the restaurant as a stand for gay rights. He was asked to leave because of his assertion that HIV is seldom transmitted through heterosexual sex and because Boggs believed his comments to be homophobic. Campfield was defended on “The View” by Whoopie Goldburg.

In 2012 Campfield authored legislation requiring suspicion based drug testing for those receiving cash government benefits. Those failing the test were referred to drug treatment centers but were allowed to stay on government benefits if they continued drug treatment and remained drug-free for 6 months. If they failed another drug test at the end of 6 months they would be banned from the program for 1 year. Early testing results showed an 18% failure rate of those tested for drugs. All of the money saved by the drug testing program remained in the assistance program to help others that qualified.

2011

In 2011 Campfield introduced legislation to allow homeschool students to try out for public school sports teams. The bill was branded the “Tim Tebow Bill” after Tim Tebow, winner of the Heisman Trophy while a quarterback for the Florida Gators, since Tebow was a homeschooled student who played high-school sports in a public school in Florida. The legislation passed and Campfied was named “Homeschooling advocate of the year”

In three successive years, 2011—SB 1802, 2012—SB 2177, 2013—SB 489, Campfield sponsored bills to grant state tribal recognition to six groups of not publicly documented Native American descendants, which would have also appointed the six groups, known collectively as the “Confederation of Tennessee Native Tribes”, as the means for other Native Americans not relocated during the “trail of tears” to receive state recognition as Native American Indian tribes. The bills were either withdrawn or died in committee. Campfield’s sponsorship was seen as largely ‘carrying water’ for Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey in whose district one of the groups also resides and whose previous state representative Nathan Vaughn initiated the legislation in 2008.

In 2011 as a senator, he revived his 2008 “pro traditional family education” bill as SB49, the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, and it gained national and international attention. Openly gay filmmaker Del Shores challenged him to a debate about it. Lillian Faderman and Harvard historian Ian Lekus agreed it encouraged dishonesty and could lead to further suicide among LGBT youth. In an interview, Campfield explained he supported anti-bullying legislation for all children, not just for the LGBT community. Later however, he remarked, “that bullying thing is the biggest lark out there. Tennessee already has anti bullying laws that cover everyone and many groups are using “bullying” to push their social agenda in schools”

2010

In 2010 Campfield was elected to the State Senate. The seat was previously held by Tim Burchett. His opponent, Democrat Randy Walker, had openly solicited support from moderate Republicans in the November election but was defeated 37–53%.

2009

In 2009, Campfield introduced a bill to limit lottery winnings to $600 for people on public assistance. Campfield said that people on public assistance should not be buying lottery tickets and instead should be using that money to buy food for their children. Tennessee law already prohibited the use of public assistance money to purchase lottery tickets. The bill also prohibited prisoners from redeeming winning lottery tickets.

On October 31, 2009, Campfield attended the Halloween Volunteers football game with the University of South Carolina at the University of Tennessee Neyland Stadium where he was briefly questioned, searched, and detained allegedly after the mother of two young girls complained that the presence of a masked Campfield had allegedly frightened two young girls. The girls had previously been told by UT stadium security that masks were not allowed to be worn inside the stadium for the Halloween football game). While Campfield was questioned in section B he was reported as only having stadium seating admission tickets for Section LL and was then escorted outside of the stadium by two UT deputies. Campfield later offered college scholarships to the two girls if they were ever identified. They never were. Several people accused UT legal council Ron Leadbetter of having a report made weeks later just to use in his campaign to unseat Campfield for the state house that same year.

2008

In 2008, Campfield sponsored a bill requiring public colleges in Tennessee to allow their full-time employees with state-issued handgun-carry permits to carry their handguns on campus. The Tennessee Board of Regent opposed the bill, saying that only campus security police at universities should possess weapons on their campuses, and that local police are the best way to protect community college campuses. Two years later, he sponsored a bill to make private the names of people with state-issued handgun permits, but not the names of people whose permits had been revoked.

Also in 2008, Campfield proposed a bill to ban teachers from teaching as part of the lesson plan about homosexuality in Tennessee’s public elementary and middle schools, saying that the topic should only be discussed by each student’s family. The bill died in committee. The Tennessee Equality Project opposed the bill, saying that teachers need not advocate for or against homosexuality, but they should allow students to debate the issue of homosexuality.

In 2008, Campfield proposed a bill to prohibit Tennessee public colleges from admitting illegal immigrants. Campfield said that if students cannot enroll in classes with unpaid parking tickets, then students should not be able to enroll in classes if they are in violation of federal immigration laws either.

2007

Campfield sponsored a bill to issue death certificates for aborted fetuses in 2007. Campfield said he wanted people to be able to find out how many abortions were being performed in Tennessee and to note the loss of human lives. Tennessee already required abortions to be reported to the Office of Vital Records, and the number of abortions performed in the state was publicly available.

2006

As of 2006, felons were eligible to vote in Tennessee as long as they are not delinquent on any payments of child support or victim restitution. Because there is no law prohibiting voting by non-felons who are delinquent on child support payment, a bill was proposed dropping the eligibility for felons of being timely with child support payments in 2006. Campfield opposed the bill, saying that one way a felon can show rehabilitation is by being timely on any child support payments.

2005

In 2005, Campfield said that he was interested in joining the legislative Black Caucus. Campfield described the group’s bylaws as racist because he said they restrict membership based on race, which described as being more restrictive than the Ku Klux Klan’s bylaws that only restrict based on the ideology of white supremacy. The leader of the Black Caucus considered asking members of the group to vote on whether to give Campfield honorary membership without voting rights, but Campfield said he only wanted full membership saying “Separate but equal did not work in the 1960’s and anything short of full membership is an insult to equal rights.”

Since March 2005, Campfield has maintained a public blog that includes a warning that any quotation from it for print will be charged at “$1,000 USD per word”.

2004

He was first elected in 2004 to the Tennessee House of Representatives.

2002

In 2002, at one of Republican Congressman Jimmy Duncan’s annual barbecues, Campfield followed candidate for Governor of Tennessee Phil Bredesen with a sign saying “Tax ‘n’ Spend Governor”. He was forcibly removed by security after being attacked by a Bredesen supporter but was later allowed to come back into the event.

1987

Although there is no definitive origin or “Patient 0” many assume, contrary to Campfield’s statement, HIV’s various distinct strains may possibly have come about in humans on numerous separate occasions because of the handling and consumption of bushmeat infected with Simian immunodeficiency virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. while not being able to completely refute his claim Health experts expressed concern about the possible health consequences of Campfield’s remarks. Campfield’s “airline pilot” reference likely referred to the case of Gaëtan Dugas, a flight attendant who was falsely referred to as “Patient Zero”, by the late Randy Shilts in his 1987 book on the modern US outbreak of AIDS, And The Band Played On.
