Federal Election Commission complaints have been filed against Jimmy Matlock and Tim Burchett, both Republican candidates in the 2nd District congressional race, Knoxnews reports. Both complaints, filed within one day of each other, cite improper donations. The complaint against Matlock was filed by Knox County resident Lee Dunlap, who alleged that Matlock’s campaign took two $500 contributions from corporations. The complaint against Burchett, filed by Loudon County Commissioner Van Shaver, makes similar claims. Matlock’s campaign has said they will file an amended report, but Burchett’s campaign claims no wrongdoing.
