Campfield uses state address to send out fundraiser invites to everyone at the Capitol (and then retracts it)

Stacey Campfield is apparently having a fundraiser at a Nashville pizzeria (featuring Ron Ramsey).

He sent out this email (emphasis mine):

From: Stacey Campfield <sen.stacey.campfield@capitol.tn.gov>
Date: October 7, 2013 at 3:53:00 PM CDT
To: Tina Hunt <tina.hunt@capitol.tn.gov>
Cc: Senate Members <SenateMembers10@capitol.tn.gov>, House Members <HouseMembers10@capitol.tn.gov>, House Staff <HouseStaff10@capitol.tn.gov>, Senate Staff <SenateStaff10@capitol.tn.gov>

Friends,

The opportunity to work for a better Tennessee in the State Senate for the past 3 years (as well as 6 years prior, serving as a member of the State House of Representatives) has been the most rewarding experience of my life.  I greatly appreciate the confidence and trust placed in me by the citizens of my legislative district. I hope to continue working for the people of Tennessee, as an honored member of the State Senate, through our efforts to reduce government intervention, support individual responsibility, crackdown on acts of crime, and to promote economic growth.
 
The 2014 election cycle is just around the corner, and I am asking for your financial support for this up-and-coming campaign season.  Although raising money is not amongst myfavorite campaign activities, being adequately funded is necessary for a successful campaign.  Your support of this effort will go a long way in achieving this critical goal.
 
With that in mind--on October 22nd, Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey and I will be co-hosting a fundraiser reception from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The event will take place at DeSano Pizza Bakery, located in downtown Nashville at 115 16th Avenue South.
 
I wish you all to attend as my guest.

Please--feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions.
 
Sincerely,

Sen. Stacey Campfield

 

So not only did Campfield use his state address for political purposes (a no-no which legislative staffers and legislators alike are reminded to avoid regularly), he invited basically every legislator (Democratic and Republican) and staffer (again, from both sides).

So then, 12 minutes later, apparently realizing his error, he fired this off (emphasis again mine):

Please disregard the previous e mail. It went out on my wrong account.

DeSano's is pretty good, by the way.
