At a committee meeting today, Knox County Ethics Committee Chairman Jonathan Cooper granted a continuance to counsel representing two county commissioners accused of impropriety, Knoxnews reports. The commissioners, Charles Busler and Bob Thomas, are accused of accepting a golf outing and gift cards prior to a major vote on the county’s emergency services contract. Thomas is now running for Knox County mayor while Busler is running for re-election to the commission, so there’s a push to resolve the issue prior to the May 1 primary election. The complaint is now scheduled to be taken up again on April 13, two days after early voting starts.
