Description

Focusing on the ethical conduct of Tennessee public officials, Channel 5's hidden-camera investigation provides a peek into the cozy relationships between Tennessee lawmakers and special interest groups. The investigation also takes the blankets off on the self-dealing by a powerful Senate Chairman and how he used the state's tax dollars to help him sell a piece of land. Furthermore, the 2-documentary series exposed the extravagant spending by the head of the state's flagship university system, the University of Tennessee. These disclosures include personal flights on a state plane, personal charges on a state credit card and no-bid contracts awarded to the President's friends.
