Quote of the Week: 'I’m really doing the thing the state asks us to do.'

"I’m really doing the thing the state asks us to do. It is a fair question. My response as a voter would be, it’s really why you’ve got to elect the right people, because there’s no way in those forms that you can ever really trace what somebody owns."

—Gov. Bill Haslam, explaining (sort of) to The Tennessean why he didn’t clearly disclose a loan guarantee to Knoxville developer Budd Cullom on his state ethics forms.
