State Election Officials Toss Burchett Complaint

State campaign finance officials unanimously said today they would take no action against Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett after an inquiry into a slew of irregularities on his campaign disclosure forms.

The Bureau of Ethics and Campaign Finance made its decision after hearing from Burchett attorney Stephen Zralek, who put the blame squarely on Burchett’s ex-wife, who, he said, controlled the campaign accounts.
