Actress Parker Overall Running for Corker's Tennessee Senate Seat

Why does she want Corker's seat?

“It was the Blunt amendment that put me over the top,” she said. “That’s where they were going to decide if they would give me medical care or give me birth control depending on how they morally believed.”

The Blunt amendment was proposed earlier this year to be added to a highway funding bill. In her speech at the Jackson Day dinner, Overall asked, “Why is my womb attached to a transportation bill?”

“I’m a good Democrat and there doesn’t seem to be one around,” she added. “I’m going for broke.”
