[quote:DSL Connector:MV8yMjA0NDg4XzM3NTU4NzcxX0Q0NkRFN0Ez] The Haslams are one scum-bag family. His brother Bill is governor of the State of Tennessee. Gov. Haslam is one of Bloomberg's gun grabbers: From the Knoxville News-Sentinel: [i]On the air at Steve Gill's, Mr. [Bill] Haslam non-explains his participation in the anti-gun Mayor's Alliance Against Guns. AC has the audio. Short version: they said it was good so I signed up.[/i] [i]He had good talking points but the facts are he's a member of an anti-gun group. And he was too lazy to check.[/i] http://blogs.knoxnews.com/silence/archives/2006/10/bloomberg_comes_2.shtml The old man Haslam, who played football at UT back in the 1950's started out with one service station back in 1958. He now owns a chain of Pilot Travel J centers that have truck stops at Interstate rest stations. Last time I heard they had 11,000 employees. They are reportedly the sixth-largest privately held company in the US. You don't go from one service station to mega wealthy in one lifetime. [b]Secrets of the truck stop king[/b] [i]If you do a lot of driving on the nation's highways, there's a good chance you've been a customer of James "Jim" Haslam II. Starting with one gas station in 1958, Haslam has built the largest chain of travel centers in North America. Knoxville's Pilot Flying J now has 496 outlets -- combination gas stations and retail stores -- that produced about $30 billion in sales in 2011, the latest data available from the closely held company.[/i] http://money.cnn.com/2012/10/22/smallbusiness/flying-pilot-j-haslam.fortune/index.html I live in Knoxville [Pilot is based in Knoxville]. Jimmy Haslam was on the radio the other day. It sounded like he was blaming the whole thing on his employees. He must have stolen money from the wrong person/company. I hope they nail his sorry backside to the wall. [/quote]
KNOXVILLE -- An FBI spokesman says agents have locked down the headquarters of the truck stop business owned by the family of Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and his brother, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam.
