RTP has been told by an unreliable source that when Chuck Cagle caught wind that others might be interested in knowing a little more about his activities, he ran right down to the Ethics Commission and got a ruling that he hadn’t done anything wrong.
Oh, puh-leeze. You can get a favorable ethics ruling to cover your ass faster than you can say “Tom Ingram.”
But the lawyers’ Board of Professional Responsibility might be a whole ‘nother story. It seems working both sides of an issue may not violate what passes for ethics laws in Tennessee, but it is seriously frowned upon if you are an officer of the court.
