Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Ethics Commission has voted to dismiss a complaint filed against Gov. Bill Haslam that said he failed to disclose how much he has paid his former chief campaign strategist for political advice in the years following the 2010 election.

An attorney for the governor told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17rr0M9) that the commission voted Wednesday in a closed-door meeting to dismiss the ethics complaint brought by former state Democratic Chairman Chip Forrester

David Smith, a spokesman for Haslam, said "We are satisfied with the result."

Forrester said he was disappointed, believing the governor violated the law by failing to disclose payments made with his own money to veteran lobbyist and political consultant Tom Ingram.

A similar complaint filed by Forrester with the Registry of Election Finance is pending.
