Bill Dunn? Liberal?

State Rep. Bill Dunn, R-Knoxville, has been getting good-natured ribbing from friends after the Sunlight Foundation listed him as the most liberal Republican House member. The veteran conservative legislator says the designation has provided a lot of “chuckles.”

He notes it would not be as funny if he had an opponent in this year’s race for re-election. But he thinks the rating might have something to do with his often voting against cutting off debate even when the Democrats are trying to make a point.

In years past Dunn has been rated the “most conservative” member by groups like the Tennessee Conservative Union.
