Embattled Rep. Jeremy Durham, R-Franklin, sent an eight-page letter to his House colleagues yesterday in advance of possible action on his expulsion this week. In the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Tennessean, he denies all accusations, defends himself, attacks the women who alleged sexual misconduct and blasts House leadership for its handling of the investigation. Durham also threatens to release a document that would name the 22 women who accused him of inappropriate conduct and release text messages he says could prove his innocence.
