Seven Tennessee senators – all Republicans – sent a letter to the Board of Judicial Conduct Monday protesting the body’s decision to dismiss an ethics complaint against Chief Justice Gary Wade. Senators Janice Bowling, Rusty Crowe, Todd Gardenhire, Mark Green, Ferrell Hale, John Stevens and Bo Watson said the board failed to "provide transparency and fairness" in its consideration of a complaint claiming Wade violated ethics rules when he commented on judges subject to review by the Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission. The Tennessean has the story.
