Former state senator and gubernatorial candidate Mae Beavers is the subject of a new complaint claiming she illegally diverted funds from her statewide campaign into her bid for Wilson County mayor, The Tennessean reports. On March 30, Beavers donated $122,000 from her gubernatorial campaign to Patriot PAC, of which her husband serves as an officer. Two of the three expenditures that PAC made were related to Beavers, including one $7,800 contribution made to “Mae Beavers for Mayor.” Ann Calabria, a Wilson County Election Commissioner, filed a complaint yesterday over the contributions.
