Hamblen County Trustee John Baskette has been accused of rustling cattle to “pay for his womanizing” in a new lawsuit, Knoxnews reports. Danny G. Simmons’ suit also reports claims from Baskette’s wife, who allegedly said her husband was leading a double life and that significant amounts of money were missing from personal accounts. Baskette’s attorney, Jill Talley, said the lawsuit is driven by her client’s “bitter, soon-to-be ex wife” and denies the claims.
