Although Anderson County election commissioners certified the results of the Aug. 7 election yesterday afternoon, controversy remains, Knoxnews reports. Roger Miller, a Republican, defeated longtime Judge Ron Murch, a Democrat, for General Sessions judge for Division II. Catherine Denenberg, chair of the Anderson County Democratic Party, contends that Miller’s election should be voided because of his long history of debts, from federal and state tax liens to unpaid local property taxes to past-due child support. According to state law, any move to contest the election must be filed within five days after certification. Denenberg said she will meet today with others interested in the matter to decide their next moves.
