  •  What if he were Governor of TN? (0+ / 0-)

    TN-Gov (but not TN-Sen) has the power to negotiate e.g. tax advantages for businesses relocating to the state. If TN-Gov threatened to withold favorable tax treatment, or to refuse to negotiate with a unionized company because of the union, would that fall under "color of official right"?
