Panel Reportedly Set to Urge Formal Charges Against Bebb

According to published reports, a state House investigative panel will recommend that House Speaker Beth Harwell appoint a committee to detail specific charges against 10th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Bebb when the General Assembly returns in January. Bebb has been under fire since a series of reports in the Chattanooga Times Free Press raised questions about his ethics and competence. Bebb recently said he is ready to take on his accusers. "I am ready for a hearing," he told The Advocate & Democrat. "Bring your witnesses and I will bring mine."
