TDOT contractor raided by the FBI

Nashville blogger Blake Wylie brings light to a TDOT contractor who was installing illegal guard rails, an act that combined in costing the state millions of dollars while also making the state's roads less safe.

Bill Hobbs goes the extra mile. He sees this as another example of Bredesen's failed major campaign promise to reform TDOT. Kudos to Bill. Without him and Steve Gill (and, to a lesser extent, myself), Bredesen's lack of performance might go unnoticed. What is somewhat more disturbing is that Bredesen has dipped into both the gas tax revenue fund (once considered the "sacred cow" of Tennessee piggy banks) and the lottery fund in this latest budget. Where is the General Assembly on this?
