The Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference (TDAGC) has told Williamson County schools that officials there did not conduct any political activity that would rise to the level of a prosecutable criminal violation, Franklin Homepage reports.The TDAGC letter comes in response to a complaint from school board member Susan Curlee, who submitted more than 100 pages of records concerning the conduct of Superintendent Mike Looney and the school district administration's use of resources. Because some employees in the Williamson County DA's office have children enrolled in the county school system, 21st Judicial District Attorney Kim Helper referred Curlee's complaint to the TDAGC to avoid questions of a conflict of interest.
