The Tennessee Ethics Commission voted Wednesday to dismiss a complaint against Gov. Bill Haslam that said he failed to disclose how much he had paid his former chief campaign strategist Ted Ingram for political advice in the years following the 2010 election, the Memphis Daily News reports. Earlier this week, the commission declined to fine Ingram and his partner, Marcille Durham, for failing to disclose a lobbying relationship. Former state Democratic Chairman Chip Forrester brought the complaint against the governor and filed a similar one with the Registry of Election Finance. That complaint is still pending.
