The Shelby County Democratic Party censured four of its members yesterday, including two members of the General Assembly. State Sen. Reginald Tate, Rep. Joe Towns and state executive committee member Hazel Moore were censured for attending a fundraiser for Circuit Court Clerk Jimmy Moore, a Republican who is running for re-election. County Commissioner Sidney Chism was censured on claims he tried to talk Democratic sheriff candidate Bennie Cobb out of running, the Commercial Appeal reports. Chism denies the allegations.
