August 10, 2012 Pikeville (TN) Mayor Charged with Public Misconduct

Was everybody asleep at the wheel while the "third-term Mayor and sitting County Commissioner" was using city funds for his personal benefit and wasting tax dollars and submitting claims to the City for reimbursement of $130,000 in insurance premiums that he never paid?

"Unrestrained abuses of power undermine public confidence in local
leaders and create an atmosphere of distrust of government
that can take years to erase."
