Frith & MacKay of Election Commission Fail To Do The Job

On the Tennessee This Week broadcast on WATE, Host Gene Patterson had Debbie Cole candidate for Knox County Clerk to discuss the Dining coupon that she had placed in the Knox County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner goodies bag. Brian's Blog detailed the contents of the goodies bag here immediately following the dinner on Saturday February 27, 2010.

On the broadcast Patterson asked Cole if MacKay and/or Frith discussed this with her before sending the findings to the Knox County District Attorney General Randy Nichols. She said NO that no one had contacted her. So, the question is how did MacKay investigate Frith's complaint without getting Cole's response? It appears that MacKay and Frith are failing to do their job appropriately. When MacKay was selected last year. Election Commission Chairman Chris Heagerty stated that the Election Commission would vote on the individual for Administrator each and every year. So, when will the Commission advertise for the job?

In addition, Brian's blog discussed here the appropriateness of Frith attending a partisan political event and that he being the one to file the complaint as detailed by the Knoxville News-Sentinel. We would hope that District Attorney General Nichols will look into this issue as well.
