State Sen. Ophelia Ford's Constituents React To Latest Rant
MEMPHIS, TN --Tennessee State Senator Ophelia Ford is making headlines, after her latest rant. It came during a Senate discussion about whether to increase penalties for assaults on health care workers.
Ford says nurses were mean and treated her badly while she was in the hospital.
Her actions have people in her district, which stretches from Millington to South Memphis, talking.
In Millington, Holly Oliver told abc24.com, "we need to pay attention to who we put in office."
Harbor Town resident Jill Seifried says, "she is our representative she needs to be dignified."
In Whitehaven the mood and opinions people had of Ford were different.
Whitehaven resident Matthew Simmons voted for Ford. He told abc24.com "Ophelia is a dedicated and loyal person. When she's reacting it's because something is not right."
