Republican Party Apologizes For Mail Piece

The Tennessee Republican Party has issued an apology for sending out a mail piece saying that Democrat State Rep. Henry Fincher of Cookeville voted in favor of giving driving privileges to illegal immigrants when, in fact, Fincher did not do that.  In an e-mail to media outlets, Gregory Gleaves, the Party's executive director said, "The State Republican Party apologizes for this one error regarding Rep. Fincher's illegal immigration voting record. This was simply a clerical error on an independent expenditure mailer that wasn't authorized by any candidate."  The incumbent Fincher is facing Republican Ryan Williams in the race for state representative.
