New Claims In Senate Contest

The Tennessee State Senate will have to decide whether it will accept an amended complaint from Gary Steakley, who is contesting his loss to Senator Charlotte Burks last November. Steakley's new lawyer has taken depositions from local election officials and now wants to claim incompetence on their part in his effort to have the results thrown out. His initial claim involved a conspiracy to tamper with the machines. The Senate is expected to rule by the end of the month.
