This year-long investigation exposed how Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's pledge to “run state government like a business” led to some serious ethical shortcomings, including the awarding of tens of millions of dollars in questionable state contracts and a blurring of the lines with a prominent Capitol Hill lobbyist who was on the governor's personal payroll. The one-hour, prime-time special is the culmination of more than three dozen individual stories that aired throughout the year. Our investigation led to a statewide political debate, legislative hearings, ethics complaints, a scathing state audit, reconsideration of millions of dollars in state contracts and calls for ethics reform that are continuing.
