Prison chief drove state-issued car, despite suspended license

Brad Schrade of The Tennessean uses state vehicle fuel logs to show that Correction Commissioner Quenton White drove his state-issued car across
Tennessee while his driver's license was suspended for not paying a speeding ticket.
"White, 45, who had headed the state's prison system since 2003, turned in his resignation yesterday to [Gov. Phil] Bredesen, the man who hired him." The story includes links to fuel logs for White's car and White's letter of resignation. White also had a sexual harassment claim against him, which was confirmed yesterday by Bredsen.
