Humane Society TV AD Urges Gov. Haslam to Veto Pro Animal Abuse Bill (Video)

via Humane Society of U.S. -  Tennessee TV Ads Call for Governor to Veto Whistleblower Suppression Bill -- The Humane Society of the United States places television ads against bill to ban undercover investigations 

At a press conference at the state capitol, The Humane Society of the United States and Rep. Gloria Johnson, D-Knoxville District 13, screened a new television commercial showing violent abuse of horses from an investigation into the Tennessee walking horse industry. The commercial is the latest effort by The HSUS to urge Gov. Bill Haslam to veto SB1248, the special interest “ag-gag” bill.

Tennessean Editorial: Animal abuse bill should draw a veto --  Gov. Haslam: Please listen to the people of Tennessee. We believe that it’s wrong for anyone to put themselves out of reach of the justice system, and that without a free press, there is no way to prevent that from happening.
