Haslam Facing Ethics Complaint Over Consultant Fees

Former state Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester is filing ethics and campaign finance complaints against Republican Gov. Bill Haslam for failing to disclose how much he has paid his former chief campaign strategist for political advice. Forrester told reporters in Nashville today that Haslam should be required to disclose how much he paid prominent GOP operative and lobbyist Tom Ingram following the 2010 governor's race. Haslam has defended his ties to Ingram and denied any inappropriate action. The Memphis Daily News has more.
