A complaint has been filed against the recently-resigned state Sen. Jim Tracy, who is accused of violating the federal Hatch Act by hosting a fundraiser for state Senate candidate Shane Reeves, Humphrey on the Hill reports. Tracy resigned in November to become the state director of rural development for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Reeves is running with Tracy’s endorsement to replace him. According to the complaint, filed by John Anderson of Bell Buckle, Tracy served as host for a Reeves fundraiser three days after accepting the job.
